Personally, I don't feel that she resolved your problem at all although she sounded sincere and convinced you that she was. All she really did was promise you something like free magazines and then put you on a list waiting for a barrel with no idea of when it is due or when you can look for it to arrive. The point is, your gun is not fixed and you don't really have any idea when it will be.

    This looks to me like classic Taurus smoke and mirrors.... Have you dealt with Taurus customer service in the past? You would be really surprised if you knew how many people right on this forum are waiting for back order parts and have been waiting for months. I would have to ask the representative why barrels are back ordered when they are producing brand new guns here in the United States with no back order of guns or parts. A few of us here on this forum have toured the Taurus plant and know that Taurus has their own barrel making machinery and can make Taurus barrels as often as they get the desire. Why don't they simply take a barrel off the shelf and send it out to the people that are waiting to use a gun they've already bought and paid for instead of putting them in guns going to sit in inventory on a shelf somewhere. You would almost have to believe that they are more interested in selling more guns and bringing the cash home then worrying about a customer Who has already paid for his gun.

    On the other hand, what do I know? I'm probably completely wrong. I mean it's not like we have seen the same thing happen over, and over, and over again.

    That doesn't seem to jive with what Taurus Customer Service told me on 10/21/2019 They said they are working with a new vendor. I'm now waiting on a fourth replacement barrel.

    I do apologize for this. I will have to place you on backorder at this time. We are working with a new vendor for better quality barrels and we are waiting to get them in. I can place it on backorder for you and once they become available we will get it shipped to you.

    This may explain the back-order situation.

    So I went back today during lunch and put about 600 rounds of through my TX22. About 250 copper clad, and 350 lead round nose. I inspected the barrel after shooting each type of ammo. With the copper clad ammo, the barrel was clean. I then put 175 rounds of Federal Auto Match lead round nose and the barrel was a little dirtier, but no lead fouling. Finally, I finished her off with 175 rounds of Remington Thunderbolt lead round nose. The barrel had a slight amount of discoloration/leading, but the crown looked shiny like it was coated with lead. Accuracy over the entire range was similar.

    So I really don't know what is happening. It is apparent that Thunderbolt is causing the leading, but the internals of the barrel looked clean for the most part, and the gun shot fine.

    I am wondering if the original leading event I had at the start of this thread was due to something else. I took the gun out of the box new and didn't clean it. I just took it out and shot it with lead ammo. Maybe there was some grease or something like that in the barrel that could have caused it to foul up with lead so quickly and affect accuracy.

    Your thoughts brothers?

    First time out with lead round nosed ammo, I had the same issue. Actually lad to tap the bore brush through with a small mallet. Shot plated ammo through it next time out with zero issues. Have now returned to using lead ammo. No more problems. Can't understand it.

    Very interesting. Your experience seems to be similar to mine.

    I went and bought a 500 round box of LRN Thunderbolts. I won't clean the gun and maybe this weekend I'll take her out and shoot all of those and see what happens.

    Lol. Maybe you did some "hand lapping" with all that shooting?

    What is your reputable source? Maybe we can get him or her to join our discussion…

    I see gun control as waiting in an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff when we should be building a fence at the top!
