    PT111 G2 barrel machined by a beaver

    This may be the roughest machining I have ever seen in a barrel. Kicking myself for not noticing this at the time of purchase. Guess I will be getting in touch with customer service to send it off to Florida and wait for a few weeks to several months to get it back. Things like this should not make it through QA checks and out the door. Just a bit of chatter......

    Have you shot it? Does it work? Does it lead up? I can see how it could be a problem, but is it? Sometimes things are simply cosmetic. Try and see, may save you a wait.

    Couple days with some Flitz and a tight fitting bore swab should take care of that.

    Also, 10 - 20 thousand rounds through it should help too.

    That needs to go back. Really. Chatter from the gun drill that drilled the barrel. Either a
    machine issue, a material issue, or most likely a damaged drill. I'm betting on the damaged
    drill. If you can measure the bore I bet it's not on size. Drill either ran oversize or undersize.

    Few places check parts 100%. They'll pull ten out of a hundred and call it good. When they find
    an issue like this they'll sort them by hand and try to find all the bad ones. Sometimes they
    don't get them all.

    Send it back.

    All the Best,

    That looks terrible. One pic looks like the chatter marks are on the lands and the other on the grooves. Too bad they can't just send out a new barrel. Let us know what happens...chat is usually the easiest and fastest way to contact them.

    Yeah......I think I'd put some rounds down range and see if it works okay.
    Chatter marks may only be an indication that a particular tool (die) may be nearing the end of its run. If its all in spec and shoots okay?...
    I'd run it and see.

    That is the worst chatter I have seen. But I have seen chatter in lands and grooves from several manufacturers, but not that obvious. I also think the twist rate isn't quite right either, at least from the pics it seems to be too straight for a G2 9mm. Let us know what Taurus says.

    If you can live without it for a while send it in. If not, shoot it and see how it does.

    I would take it back to the dealer and ask for an exchange. Might produce quicker results.

    I pulled down 4 guns- Walther PPS, Bersa Thunder Plus, Canik S F Elite, and Kahr CW9.
    The Kahr was the only one to have tool marks in the barrel- but it shoots fine.

    I also immediatley called Chattering to a degree that it never should have left factory ! I try to thourougly inspect all aspects of new and used purchases .Back to the factory it goes !
