From the Taurus Website;
"Original purchasers of a Taurus firearm covered by a one-year warranty will be pleased to learn their firearm will be covered under this new Limited Lifetime Warranty."
Lifetime warranty but only if you are the original purchaser; right?
Yes, I have been a Taurus owner and Historian since 1984, with my first purchase being a model 85 to replace a S & W mod 36 that had been stolen. I went to my favorite gun shop to buy a Model 36. My dealer was on the phone, and I could not help but notice the superior Taurus 85 sitting next to the S & W 36 under the glass. The Taurus 85 had a concealed underlug, and the bluing was superior.The price on the Taurus was upside down, so just looking at the two under glass visually, I decided I would prefer the Taurus to the S & W, but figured it was out of my price range. My gun dealer got off the phone and I found out the Taurus was actually priced less than the Mod 36. I probably would have paid a little extra for the Taurus, but was pleasantly surprised by the lower price. When I compared the trigger pull, again, the Taurus was superior. After shooting the revolver for two weeks, I went back and bought one for the wife also.
The published story about 10 things, is mostly a positive story, and one I am familiar with, but I could add to the story with negatives, although I have had very few negatives with the ones I own, and have been fortunate to have only ordered parts one time, in 2009, when Taurus actually had them and would send them to you or they would send you a prepaid shipping label. Then things changed, and we had to send them in on our own dime, where they would often fall into an open abyss, and many times, folks would still get back an un-repaired gun or a badly repaired gun. Taurus has a long way to go to earn back my confidence and willingness to purchase any new Taurus products.
