Does anyone know what the problem is with getting magazines for the 709 or 740 Slim? I called Taurus last October and placed an order for 2 spare 740 mags. They said it would take 6-8 weeks. It has been six months. I was on Taurus' Facebook page, and they are still today telling people 6-8 weeks. There must be quite a lot of unhappy Taurus owners out there. I don't understand - whatever situation Taurus is having with getting magazines made should be resolved in 6 months. Anyone have any insight regarding this?
