Hello all! First time here...first post. Just bought my first Taurus from a relative. Stainless 617. Very pleased with the gun so far. Most opinions I read online before buying seemed mostly favorable.

The front sight is slightly bent to the left. I assume this is not normal and completely appears to be a manufacturing defect. Previous owner (who bought the gun new) didn't even notice. There is no evidence the gun was dropped or otherwise neglected.

I would like to know if Taurus might take care of this for free. I read about their "forever" warranty which states sights are not included. However this is certainly a factory defect. Or.... what might a gunsmith charge to straighten the sight? I don't really feel comfortable sticking the gun in a bench vise.

Thank you!
