Sounds like they wanted to sell you one of their slides.
Yeah, he didn't mention it. I'm not even sure this particular company does that. But I find it hard to believe the Taurus steel is so subpar that the finish wouldn't "stick."Sounds like they wanted to sell you one of their slides.
well just damn!!I sent a PT1911 slide off to a fairly well-know company last week for what I guess you'd consider a "spray-on" finish (matte black) and today got a call from a nice guy there who said he was about to process my order but just wanted to let me know that the company wouldn't warranty the finish on a Taurus (or a Rock Island) as they would on any other manufacturer's gun (something to do with the quality of the steel and couldn't warranty it against, e.g., flaking) and to make sure I wanted to proceed. I said I'm sure it would be fine and to go ahead and refinish it.
Anyone ever heard this, and should I call back and say never mind?
Thanks for any info.
