So about a week ago I noticed that the ejector rod on my brand new 444 was crooked. It didn't affect the operation and so I just let it slide. The more I thought about it the more it started to bother me though. I just spent a good chunk of change on this thing. So I hit Taurus USA's Facebook messenger to ask if parts were available. I was told they were "restricted" and could not be purchased and the gun would have to be sent in for repairs. Oh well, I guess I'll just deal with it. Then it occurred to me today that I should call customer service and actually speak with someone. After about 5 minutes on hold, not only were the parts available (I went ahead and ordered a new center pin, center pin spring and extractor just to play it safe), since the gun is brand new, the gentleman informed me there was no charge! He did say the center pin spring was on back order though. This has been my first experience with Taurus customer support and man, so far, I'm thoroughly impressed.
