I started on this forum to keep up with the 24/7 lawsuit. Now that it is "old news", I have kept up reading other threads and have enjoyed them thoroughly. I have a question as to where to post an observation about the Taurus Lawsuit and don't know where it should post.

Here is my observation: I have called Taurus about my 24/7 today. I asked them "How comparable" to my "confiscated firearm" will they get my replacement firearm. The customer service rep said 111 G2 9mm. I reminded CS that I turned in a .40. I her words exactly: "The courts only approved the 111 G2 9mm to replace all caliber 24/7s". So I said "your telling me that my .40 service pistol, will be replaced with a 9mm?" She said "Yes, I am sorry but all calibers are to be replaced with the 9mm G2s". I don't consider myself a conspiracy theorist but doesn't that seem like a bit of a set up? I mean to "dumb down" from a .40 (which is standard issue in non-politically correct LE departments, with the more PC, "friendly, less lethal" 9mm?

So where would I post that observation to get other peoples ideas on the matter?

Welcome aboard, Berliner70. I'm from Las Vegas.
I think either the "Firing Line", or the "Taurus Product Problems" would be good places to post for your replacement problems.
I'm kinda surprised that they are only giving you a 9mm for your .40 cal, especially since they make a PT-140 G2, which is the PT-111 G2 in .40 cal.
Am I wrong about this?
Anyway, I carry the PT-111 G2, and I think it's a great weapon. Less lethal than the .40? Maybe a little tiny bit, but the 9mm is still a powerful weapon. And it's become so common that the cost of 9mm ammo is much less than anything other than a .22LR.

The features I like about the PT-111 are:
1. Large capacity for a compact gun (12+1).
2. Second-strike ability.
3. Has a small rail for a light or laser.
4. Breaks down like a Glock.
5. Has a loaded chamber indicator that can be felt in the dark.
6. Has a clean crisp manual safety that is easy to use, but not too flimsy.

In fact, the only thing I would add to the PT-111 if I were the designer is a decocker.

I just wish Taurus would come out with an official notice to what is going on. How hard would it be to list if you send in this model this is what we will send you. If you live in this state this is what you will get because of laws in your state.

Is the cash option expired? If what they told you is correct I am guessing many people would have opted for a cash option instead of the 9mm.

The biggest problem is there are too many I was told this claims out there and they all muddy the water.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist either, however.............I find it very hard to believe that the court would arbitrarily mandate a 9mm replacement. That sounds more like something that Taurus petitioned the court to do. Either way, I think it stinks and I'm really glad I didn't buy one of the recall guns when I bought my PT709.
