    Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. I never even consider my LCI. First I consider it always loaded, and it is if it's out of the safe, and if I get really curious and don't want to rack the slide I'll do a press check. If it were mine I would take it out and shoot it and if it functioned fine, shelve the repair job until the day you decide to detail strip the slide to clean the FP channel or install a SS guide from Lakeline. I am actually surprised that Taurus is sending the part....there was a long gap in time when they wouldn't do that.

    Thanks for the welcom Czechbikr and bigC. Czechbikr: Honestly, I’ve never considered a LCI when purchasing a pistol. My S&W MPs have a “peep hole” cut between the slide and the barrel that I rarely notice. In fact, I was not aware of the LCI on the G2C until I bought it and cleaned it the first time. I’m not so worried about it for safety purposes. It’s just the fact that I payed hard earned dollars for something that is defective right out of the box. I actually took it to the range for the first time last night and it ran like a champ. Taurus customer service suggested that if I shot it the LCI might “unstick”. It didn’t, of course. Bottom line is if I can fix it with the replacement parts I will be happy. If I never get it fixed I will live with it and be a little pissed. Not sending it to Taurus for 12 or more weeks and risk them finally sending it back unrepaired. Things certainly could be worse.

    The only pistol I've ever owned with this type of loaded chamber indicator was a Ruger P345. It worked, but occasionally it had to be cleaned a little more aggressively as carbon build up would freeze it in the loaded position. Just an annoyance though. Since traded that pistol off even though it was a great firearm.

    Good luck getting parts from Taurus. Heck, I didn't even know my TH9c HAD a loaded chamber indicator for the first two range sessions with it. I could live without it, personally. I'm never happy unless I press check it anyway.

    Native Texan: Lady at Taurus customer service told me I would have repair parts in 5-7 days. We’ll see if their customer service people are more competent than their quality control group.🤣

    Well, that IS most excellent! Past history on getting parts hasn't been good. I hope it's a trend.

    My G2C went to Taurus for repair (needed a new barrel). It came back to me in two weeks. If that is the new “normal”? It represents quite an improvement.

    Ammolab, how long ago did you get a 2 week turnaround? Taurus told me up to 12 weeks 2 days ago. Either their really padding to cover their butts or they have had a massive influx of defective/broken firearms. Could be that they say 12 weeks just to discourage repair returns.

    Meant “they’re” really padding......I hate when my phone selects words and I miss it.
