    Ruger has always been good to deal with. I have five Rugers and the few contacts I have had with their CS has been excellent.

    Re: Taurus CS Sucks!!

    Now if Ruger would just make a 1911! Not all the bells & whistles and odor-reducing proprietary goodies the various manufacturers throw on their versions of 1911's nowdays. Make the frames REALLY be "Mil-Spec, no changes to extractors and other "tiny parts" so they either need to be replaced with "only available from US" or hand fitted by a 'good gun-guy'. Not a new idea incorporated into the gun! Make it truly a "Mil-Spec" firearm; "not 'almost Mil-Spec' - FULLY Mil-Spec! Let the buyer customize the gun after it's bought - with just the "goodies' they really want on THEIR gun! Cater to the folks who buy based on brand loyalty - not a standard of quality that was abandoned five or more years ago by the "current major manufacturers"

    I can see Rugers colorful ads now - Designed to simply 'catch the buyers eye'. Make it ridiculous sounding - most importantly "laughable" and buyers would flock to the doors when it was released!

    ---ANNOUNCING THE PENDING FALL 2010 RELEASE OF OUR NEW AND IMPROVED 1911 --- Our 1912." ---

Insist that Customer Service be more than two worlds stuck one behind the other.

    Re: Taurus CS Sucks!!

    Well, on Christmas Eve according to the Taurus website our 709 went from being firearm arrived waiting for repair, to repair in process, to repair completed, to firearm shipped. All of this in one day. According to Fedex tracking it will be delivered today. Now it remains to be seen if it is repaired.

    I hope Dexter the Cross-eyed Brasilian Gunsmith didn't get your gun. Dexter isn't short for Dexterity!
    You were the 4-6 weeks that Taurus promises, and they have more new models than any other gun we see in the US so there CS may not be the fastest. I'll be curious for the report on what they said the repairs were. \
    When the sig mosquitos came out, they had problems too, and it is doubtfu as many of them sold as did the 709's initially.
