ALLLLL RIGHT!!! Boy are we glad you're on board. I, and a couple of others have asked why Taurus couldn't send some official help. We're gonna wear you out.
Here's my first request. Please ask the company big-wigs for an e-mail address that we can send questions to. That way they will better know what their most loyal customers, (us) want to know. We could sign up for a monthly E-newsletter. Maybe you could post it here. Many of us have the same questions and a "cover letter" would be greatly apreciated.
You may not know this, but the members of this forum often defend Taurus products on other forums. WE are your best resource, you should be ours.
Welcome Richard. It's nice to know that someone from the manufacturer is interested in their customer base. Everyone here is polite but we all like direct answers to our questions. I also would like to see an ezine or newsletter. Thanks for your interest here.
Hi Guys, sorry i have taken so long to reply. I am here to help as much as i can, even though it might take me a little bit longer since i don't have a personal computer ( yet ):
*kansas_plainsman: 800 series should be out early 2008.
*DEAEGER: 24/7 OSS will actually be coming out in the Desert Sand and in Black.
*TitaniumMan: PT 957 ( .357 Sig ) Came out in late 1999 early 2000 and was discontinued shortly after. (not very popular).
*warbani: As of right now we just have plans for the full size 1911.
*drummin_man627: I'll do my best in trying to have a E-newsletter or some kind of customer service bassed e-mail. But in the mine time you guys can just ask me and i'll be happy to answer any question to the best of my ability.
*ciurym: PT 1911 SS should be coming out towards the end of this year. Early 2008 we should have the B;ue and SS with the TacRail, also we should be introducing a Duo Tone Blue frame SS slide and also an aluminum frame version.
Sorry guys for the mass post but i wanted to answer everybodies question and this was the easiest way. Please feel free to either write me personal messages, also (especialy to the moderators) please point me to any questions or concerns on any of the other post or topics.
Mass post is good with me. It answers all the questions we asked without working your fingers to the bone typing to individuals with quotes.
I am curious what all we can do to our Taurus firearms without voiding our warranty's? I know some of use either have or would like to do a like customizing of our PT1911's. Not that they are not great firearms as is, it's just the a 1911 pistol is like a Harley Davidson motorcycle (it's just begging to be personalize)
I own a factory ported PT945 which I enjoy shooting alot. What other Taurus semi-autos come with the option of a ported barrel/slide? Is it something that must be ordered that way new, or can we have one of our current semi-autos converted? Always thought a 24/7 OSS or 24/7 Long Slide would be great ported like my PT945.
Once again, thanks for joining our little group ;D
i have stainless 24/7 in .40 S&W and a 9mm long slide. purchased both guns, new, within the past 4-6 months the mags for the .40 won't hold more than 14 rounds, and they don't fit flush with the bottom of the mag well. gun shoots fine, but the mags are not "right."
9mm also shoots very nicely, but all three mags i own (2 came with gun, i added the 3rd at time of purchase) have the same "do not fit flush with the bottom of the grip/mag well." i suspect you guy have new mags that have eliminated these problems. i don't wan't to send in gun---takes too long. can you help me?
