Welcome from Northern Illinois! Their standard quote has been 4-6 weeks, but that is assuredly dependent on parts availability. When they get the decision that the gun has to be replaced, they used to go through a review board process. We do have some folks who have torn down the Spectrum and they may be along shortly. I hope that you can get it running well soon.
“Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

Sorry, can't help you with the Spectrum.
The PT738 comes apart with a couple of pins that go through the entire frame. Loosen a couple of springs and the mechanism comes right out of the frame. I'm guessing the Spectrum is similar. I found the PT738 instruction on YouTube, so that's where I would start.
However, as someone else mentioned, I wouldn't do that to a new gun for fear that I'd mess something up that would void the warranty. I'd part with it for a few months just to keep from messing it up altogether.
Taurus sent me a return shipping label and the gun will go out Fed Ex in the morning. I just hope they fix the slide lock and do not mess with anything else. The gun ran perfectly for 26 rounds of Winchester white box and my reloads (rem 88gr JHP over 3gr of Bullseye). Early production guns often have problems that get sorted out during the production run. My serial number is 1F366XX so I guess that puts it well into the production run.

I never shoot reloads in any of my weapons!
I just like to load them up and stack them up cause I like to look at the shiny brass.
I would NEVER use them in a gun.
