I sent back my Taurus PT145 for the repair or replacement recall about six weeks ago. Still waiting to hear if they will repair it or replace it. I read a few months ago that there was no repair option available at this time and they would simply replace it with a newer model. Has anyone else sent back their pistol and heard anything?

Good luck. I had a 24/7 PRO CDS in .40 that I sent in. Waited almost a year and a half for a new gun. That was back when they were just wrapping up the lawsuit though, so yours might not take so long. I opted for a PT111G2 in its place, as the 9mm was available before the .40 and i didnt want to wait any longer. My advice would be to utilize their online chat, and contact them every 3-4 weeks.I also requested and received a free magazine for my trouble.

Hah.  The suit's law firm (the people who actually profited from the whole mess) were telling members that Taurus was going to take 2-3 weeks to replace the sent-in guns.  That remains to be seen.

I have a PT145 in the hopper, myself.

When I read the title, I just assumed it was a blanket recall for all of their guns.

Good luck to all!  After waiting a year I received a Pt11g2 to replace a Pt11 Mil-pro and another 9 months (21 mo total) for a POS PT809 to replace a 27/7 OSS tactical.

They are not giving much of an option, A $200 G2, a discontinued 809 or whatever cash is left, up to $200 (which more likely than not will be about $100).

There is no fix for the class guns! 

What I'd like to know what will happen to the NOS guns yet to be sold? Still alot of em on GB.

Let the buyer beware!

Update Week 7

 

Contacted Taurus by “chat”.  After asking a few questions they asked me to fax claim form.  I told them that it was sent in the box with the firearm (one inside gun case and one in the box).  I gave them my claim number and claim ID number.  They said to contact the back in 72 hours.
