New owner and need of a part

1589 Views 11 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Cimarron
Just bought the 1911 and so far I love it. I haven't even taken it to the range yet, but I like the faetures it comes with.

However, I have a problem. My right ambi thumb safety is broken. (see pic below) I will replace it myself instead of sending it to Taurus. I have the part number but want to know is there a 'secret' Customer service numbrt to call, or just use the one on the website? Also, will this be a free replacement? Don't care either or, just need it asap. Thanks for any input/advice.

I am also a new owner and my ambi-safety keeps coming loose/popping out along with the take-down lever which is so loose it stops the slide from cycling. The only way I can fire it is to hold the lever down with my left thumb until the ambi-safety comes loose again. I have tried repeatedly to have push/tap it back together and it comes loose after a few rounds. I still seriously love this pistol and can fix it myself, with new parts, I assume. I have hesitated in sending it back to Taurus as they are outside the US and I really don't like sending my favorite pistol outside the States. Any ideas? :???:
