    This one will be going in on the next buy back.
    What do you want for it?
    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    I wonder if you couldn't separate the cylinder from the gun and ship them as "parts" in different parcels via USPS? Just log the service order number in each package and advise them ahead of time so they can mate them up in GA.

    I had to send back a lemon gun a few years ago. If I remember correctly... sending a non-working handgun to the mfgr for repairs is one of the few exceptions and does not require a FFL. So a USPS $10 ship-anything box was in my sights. But I did not get to go through with this process because although the particular mfgr acknowledged that to be true, there own internal policy was "always FFL, both ways".

    (( Maybe this topic would be helpful info in its own new post. ))

    Czechbikr, By federal law you can not send a handgun of any type through the USPS. If you break it down as you asked you cannot ship it as parts because the frame of the handgun has the serial number. The serial number makes it a handgun regardles of condition or ability to shoot. You can send the barrel, cylinders, Springs, screws, grips, and any other non serial numbered parts through Post Office legally. It is only the serial numbered part that makes it a firearm.

    You are allowed by law to send a fire arm that you own back to a manufacturer or for repairs or custom work other than the manufacturer but You have to use UPS or fed ex. The firearm in question can be sent from the owner directly to the repair facility and then it can be returned back to the owner with no involvement of an FFL.

    Which brings us back to this.

    Sorry you got a bad one, but there are three things you can do. Send the gun back(talk with CHAT at the Taurus USA site) to Taurus USA and have them fix it. Tell the responder your problem in a tactful and diplomatic manner. Copy down what was said and to whom. Better yet. Go to the Heritage Firearms site. Click on the tab that says "SUPPORT" and then you can converse with someone live with q copy of what was said and done. Contact Customer Care
    Hours: Monday - Friday
    8:00AM to 8:00PM (EST)
    Call Us: (800) 327-3776
    Help Desk: Submit a request


    Contact Us Now that I think of it chat is out but clicking on the "Submit A Request" tab at Taurus USA can help. It'll will give
    you a record of what was done.

    Barring that you can have a local accredited gunsmith work on it. Or you cans sell the gun. Do the moral thing and tell the new to be owner about the problem before he/she buys it.

    I have researched the archives here and have seen nothing like you propose. It can happen so am not calling anyone out on this. Just that there are things that can be done and this thread has gone as far as it can. It might be time to shut it down.

    I submitted a request to Taurus. Will see what they have to say.

    I had the gun for sale on Armslist. Took it to the range just for HA, HA's. That's when I discovered the issue. I took it off the site immediately. If I can't get it fixed, I would just sell the cylinders & all non serialized parts, & destroy the handle.

    The handle of the revolver is Considered the grip frame and is not the location of the serial number. You can legally sell the grip frame. If you turn the gun upside down and look in front of the trigger guard you will find the serial number. That is considered the frame of the gun and where the serial number is located.

    Thanks for that. Still waiting to hear back from Taurus. I'd really like to get this resolved. The gun is just plain COOL, but hate that it won't function.

    Got an email response today from Taurus. Asked for the serial # & my full name, address, etc.

    Fingers are crossed.

    I also have a Heritage with both cylinders and enjoy it just as much as my Ruger single 6. It's a great buy.
