This may be the roughest machining I have ever seen in a barrel. Kicking myself for not noticing this at the time of purchase. Guess I will be getting in touch with customer service to send it off to Florida and wait for a few weeks to several months to get it back. Things like this should not make it through QA checks and out the door. Just a bit of chatter......

Have you shot it? Does it work? Does it lead up? I can see how it could be a problem, but is it? Sometimes things are simply cosmetic. Try and see, may save you a wait.

Couple days with some Flitz and a tight fitting bore swab should take care of that.

Also, 10 - 20 thousand rounds through it should help too.

That needs to go back. Really. Chatter from the gun drill that drilled the barrel. Either a
machine issue, a material issue, or most likely a damaged drill. I'm betting on the damaged
drill. If you can measure the bore I bet it's not on size. Drill either ran oversize or undersize.

Few places check parts 100%. They'll pull ten out of a hundred and call it good. When they find
an issue like this they'll sort them by hand and try to find all the bad ones. Sometimes they
don't get them all.

Send it back.

All the Best,
D. White

That looks terrible. One pic looks like the chatter marks are on the lands and the other on the grooves. Too bad they can't just send out a new barrel. Let us know what happens...chat is usually the easiest and fastest way to contact them.

Yeah......I think I'd put some rounds down range and see if it works okay.
Chatter marks may only be an indication that a particular tool (die) may be nearing the end of its run. If its all in spec and shoots okay?...
I'd run it and see.

That is the worst chatter I have seen. But I have seen chatter in lands and grooves from several manufacturers, but not that obvious. I also think the twist rate isn't quite right either, at least from the pics it seems to be too straight for a G2 9mm. Let us know what Taurus says.

If you can live without it for a while send it in. If not, shoot it and see how it does.

I pulled down 4 guns- Walther PPS, Bersa Thunder Plus, Canik S F Elite, and Kahr CW9.
The Kahr was the only one to have tool marks in the barrel- but it shoots fine.

I also immediatley called Chattering to a degree that it never should have left factory ! I try to thourougly inspect all aspects of new and used purchases .Back to the factory it goes !

I will get ahold of customer service, probably wait until after the holidays. Amazingly, it does shoot ok, put a hundred rounds through it the other day just out of curiosity. It definitely fouled excessively and was fun cleaning. I sure wish they would just send a barrel as I am capable of fitting one with no issues, but know for liability reasons it will need to go back. Will update as it goes. Thanks all for your input and happy holidays!

Personally I would not shoot it.
I've never seen anything quite that bad before and
I have no idea what would happen if it was fired.
Maybe nothing, maybe something I wouldn't want to experience.
Just my opinion of course.

I have no plans to fire it again until it has a new barrel. I will say, I am pretty impressed with the trigger weight and reset and it feels good in the hand. In manufacturing there are always defects that can slip through, so not overly upset about it.

Send it back while it is still under warranty.

There is that...and with x amount of time they pay the freight.
