    Taurus magazines

    I bought a very nice Taurus 740 for around $350 bucks. Works good, few initial quibbles that were easily worked out, but it only came with 2 magazines. Found some...eventually....at a high-ish price.


    I also have a $1000+ pistol for competition that has never been real popular or well known. Yet, just ordered 5 more 17rnd magazines for $20.68 each. Could have bought from dozens of places with the highest price being $26.




    So why is it way easier and cheaper to get spare mags for a niche gun than one for a super popular model from a huge company like Taurus? come on Taurus, fill the supply lines already!
    I believe in gun control! Starting with a firm 2 handed grip....

    I agree. Does anyone know where to get extra magazines?

    We have an LGS that recently ordered, and received a handful of PT709 and PT740, magazines. Cost for either was $32.00 each. They were the place where I bought Ruger American Pistol .45 ACP spare mags for roughly the same price ($31.12). Another shop recently told me that they "couldn't find" any of these magazines, anywhere. Like anything else, it would appear that, all too often, it's simply too much trouble to get in a couple of magazines.

    Not sure why Taurus doesn't let other companies make them? I do know you can order (get on list) at Taurus to get them without paying super high ebay rates.

    You can feed the problem or the solution.... Whichever you feed is the one that will grow...

    Taurus cannot stop "other companies" from making magazines. Unless there is a patent on the particular features in the magazine, they are open source for copying. Ruger doesn't stop anyone from making magazines for the Mini-14. They don't have to. The copy-cats are trying to cheap out on the magazines, and, in doing so, they sabotage themselves.

    While we "can't see why" on a lot of aftermarket parts for Taurus, the manufacturers simply don 't see a market for them. Whining on a forum for Taurus isn't going to make it better. Instead, contacting various manufacturers, asking them to include Taurus lines in their products, will make it known to them that there is a niche market going unfulfilled. However, we then have to BUY those products, or they will be dropped.

    I've had good luck by scanning GunBroker on a pretty regular basis. Like any auction site, you wade through a lot of overpriced items until one at the right price comes along. Patience and diligence, gentlemen.

    Uhhhhhhhhh..........I wanted a spare magazine for my Taurus PT 638, a gun discontinued here in the US a couple of years ago. I went to the Taurus site, ordered one, and it arrived four days later. Taurus shows a zero inventory for the PT740 today, but they DO have the PT709 mags in stock.

    This site shows 50+ magazines, priced under $30.00.

    Really, maybe we need to sharpen our Google-Fu skills.
