    The struggle is REAL!

    It's sort of like the lottery. When you get your numbers you know you always have a chance to win. Good Luck
    If it's worth putting a hole in then it's worth putting a BIG hole in.

    You can't trust Taurus International when it comes to parts.

    In October of last year (2019) I ordered a model 85ss2 Yoke side plate screw. I paid for it and they took $16.40 via my Visa Debit card in 3 days.

    This screw comes in 3 parts believe or not.
    (1) Barrel
    (2) Spring
    (3) Pin

    After waiting 2 months I received the Pin in the mail. Called Customer service and was told the Barrel & Spring was out of stock and would be shipped as soon as they received a new shipment.

    It is now July 19, 2020 and I have still not seen hide nor hair of the Barrel & Spring.

    Call Taurus ever once in a while and are always told that they are out of stock and will send the parts as soon as stock is replenished.

    Needless to say I don't think much of Taurus International.

    djh- geez. A few more months and you will hit the annual anniversary of your order. How can this even be possible? Sorry to hear?

    djh - I feel for you. I've seen and heard of 18 month waiting periods for parts.
    Like I have said before, if my last Taurus, my 605, ever needs a part that isn't available right then, it will be destroyed, and the pieces spread all over Lake Pleasant here near Phoenix in such a way that they can't be found in one pile. Yes, Taurus has soured me that badly, not just with parts availability, but with the whole discontinuation of the 85 model and the 5 year limit of a warranty after discontinuation on a "lifetime warranty" firearm. NOT good customer service, Taurus.

    Electing Joe Biden as President will be similar to going bear hunting at night with just a pair of chop sticks and a lit candle. You know it is a bad idea from the outset, you can not defend yourself, you are ill prepared for what can and maybe will happen, and you question why you even thought it would be a good idea in the first place.

    but glad the new weapon is meeting your expectations.

    I do have a Stainless Mdl. 85 also, it resides on one of the night stands by the bed.
