    Repair turn around time

    I just called Taurus C S about sending in a PT111 g2 for repair, I ask what the expected turn around time was, she said 12 weeks. I've never sent one back to Taurus but does it really take 12 weeks? I got one back yesterday from Charter Arms, took 8 days from drop off at FedEx to returned.

    It depends, they always say 12 weeks. I have had pistols made in Taurus US come back in as little as two weeks. But if they have to send it home to Brazil, then plan on 11-12 weeks.

    Exactly what Silverstring said!
    I sent a PT-111 G2 and a TCP to Taurus for repairs. They acknowledged that the guns had arrived, and I waited.
    The G2 was returned in 4 weeks, but I didn't hear anything about the TCP. After 12 weeks I called to check on the status of the TCP. They said they were unable to repair the TCP (I sometimes wonder if they lost it). They offered me a new Spectrum as a replacement, but I wasn't impressed with the reviews of the Spectrum. I asked if I could have a new G2C instead, and they approved. The only down side is that since it was a new gun they had to send it to an FFL, and I had to pay the $20 for the transfer.

    Every time I hear of or read of a firearm repair taking 10-12 weeks or 16 weeks or even 6 norths; I just grin and smirk because my worst one was 9 months and that was from the best.....and it took a letter from the Secretary of State's office to get it back to me. It was 1979 and the state was Hawaii and the gun was a stainless steel New Model Black Hawk Ruger. Actually it was several weeks more than 9 months, at 9 months Ruger agreed to replace the gun but it took several more weeks to get it.
    Remember, no email, no fax machines, no commercial internet and phone calls over seas were very, very expensive.

    Their typical knee-jerk response to that question is the 12 week answer.
    And sometimes, it is that long to get things done, as it was last year on my Taurus 85 revolver.
    And if you ask why, they have a response of "We have many guns waiting for repair".
    There are acronyms for this: S.N.A.F.U. and F.U.B.A.R.

    They shipped it back within 2 weeks. I would have it now if my FFL had not made a mistake on his end (he has 2 FFLs and made a mistake on which one to send it to).
