The pistols were quite safe if properly handled, but were not idiot proof. Unfortunately, America is jam full of idiots.
    My point, I don't put my finger on the trigger when setting a safety, proper gun handling!

    to each their own.
    I personally wouldn't own a chevy vega even thoguh i doubt the chances of it being rear ended and exploding is pretty remote, I don't want any new car with a Takata air bag, although who knows IF you have one that will shoot out metal sahrads if the air bag deploys, same with i don;t want any weapon that has a recognized possible fault design with it even though the chances are remote it may occur.
    just me I guess, if i want to play odds then it will be at a casino or a lottery ticket, if i lose at those places it likely will not cost me my life.
    as for the Taurus adjustment in value , well its pretty much done as I see it, remember and adjust buying power in the future or be happy and get what you can and move along is my suggestion.

    Neither do I, nor does anyone else I know. That's why Taurus insisted, correctly and throughout the silly class action suit, that their pistols had no defects. Unfortunately, the sort of person who shoots himself in the butt by handling his weapon improperly is nevertheless allowed to file lawsuits.

Blah, blah, blah. Web site generated no response, Customer service would do nothing because of the courts. Wrote to the judge. Got a call from the lawyers and a promise to get my pistol in the pipeline. that was 4 years ago. about a year ago- I got a call from the LGS where I traded it in for a CZ 75. Telling me that 'Your Taurus is in, come pick it up". I had to tell him that the gun was theirs-!
    So after 3 years of frustration trying to get your gun replaced, when they finally sent it you let your receiving FFL keep it and you got nothing?
    Why? That seems like cutting off your nose to spite your face. I must be missing something here. I just don't get the logic of doing that.

    Wow. After spending about 20 minutes reading through most of these posts, all I can say is that I am happy as hell I did not buy a 24/7, back in the day...I almost did, but went with something else instead.

    i too saw where the OP shopped his theory around various forums. He didnt get much traction there either. Kinda made this old man chuckle a little bit. Still shaking my head.

    yep, hind sight is usually backwards if you are looking through a mirror!!--NO wait that's not right?
    anyway I owned (still own one 24/7 C) also one of them was the OSS and I must say thy were good feeling, fair shooting weapons with few malfunctions, although the OSS had to go back for a new barrel.
    accuracy was average in mine certainly not a competitor against my CZ 97, or several of my 1911 in 45.
    I was not at all happy with the offer by Taurus to pay me 200 bucks for them.
    that would cost me about 150-200 bucks loss on each weapon. sold the OSS and the 24/7 C in 9MM to individuals for tad better money.
    the problem that I have here is that almost no Gun Store will touch a used taurus at any price other than insanity, so I will wait until someone wants a short, fairly accurate lil 24/7 C in 45 acp and see If I can move it then.
    Now I mention that I tell the buyers about the Taurus recall/ inspection or what ever you want to call it before sale.
    So all and all I could also be glad IF I had not bought them as well.

    Yes, this has been my experience. I've shopped my recalled Taurus guns around on local forums and gun shops with full disclosure on the recall and nobody is remotely interested. Most people flat out refuse to consider a Taurus. Gun shops around here cannot move Taurus and many won't even stock them or take them in trade. The value of these "recall" guns, with the hassles of replacing them, is almost zero, probably close to $100 when factoring the hassles and costs and wait times for a $200 replacement.

    I think that speaks for itself on the reputation damage the brand did to itself, as also shared in this thread.

    I never owned a Taurus gun before the recall occurred. I have a friend who had a Taurus revolver and really liked it, so a couple years ago when I was looking to buy a gun, I picked up a new Taurus for what I thought was a decent price. I picked up another new one for what I thought was a decent price. I then picked up several used ones for what I thought were decent prices. Some of those used ones were on the settlement list and I paid more then $200 (each) for them. All of those were the results of online auctions, so it wasn't as though I offered some guy $200+ for a gun. The market drove the price up there. Now, a cynic could say it was the seller and his buddies that were driving the price up, but it would have to be a pretty good conspiracy to do that time and time again, on the auctions I won and the auctions I didn't win.

    Value is in the eye of the beholder.

    Local gun shops here will not take eyes in on trade or buy them outright either.-------
