Does anyone have any experience with the Taurus 24/7 OSS .45? I've researched this and the standard 24/7 and I like the length of the OSS more. Any comments appreciated.
It is NOT the quality control, you are shooting at 6 Oclock and Taurus Pistols shoot POI (Point of Impact)James41 said:I'm hoping it was just one of those things, but mine sucked right out of the box. Shot 4 to 6 inches low at 10 yards and had 5 no fires out of 150 to 200 rounds. Dealer of course would not take it back even though i had it less than 24 hours so i am waiting to see what Taurus does, they have had it for 4 weeks now.
I like the gun, it feels good, low recoil, but evidently quality control doesn't and customer service is not one of their strong points.
In this case, yes it is a quality control problem. They let this gun out of the factory with some fairly major problems including bad accuracy and a firing mechanism that tends to not fire every few rounds.TheBulldog said:It is NOT the quality control, you are shooting at 6 Oclock and Taurus Pistols shoot POI (Point of Impact)
and set at 25 yards.
If you missed at 10 yds, you were not getting it done right.
You can google Heinie and they'll tell you on their site how to use the sights properly.
Springfield does have a lifetime warranty and stellar customer service. But I do agree with you on this subject.texastaurusguy said:Zen, the 'cheerleaders' you refer to here own a plethora of firearms, including CZ's and Springfields......Glocks, Rugers, S&W's, you name it. We tend to call 'em like we see 'em here, as opposed to slamming and flaming. Not sure where all of these locking up problems are that you refer to for the OSS......I've really heard nothing bad with them from a functionality standpoint. Nothing. Now, you may take issue with the takedown pin for a gun used in the field, and while that may be a somewhat valid point, but thats a pretty minor point of contention, overall.
Taurus will fix or replace anything wrong on the gun for the lifetime of the gun, period. Can you say that about CZ and Springfield?
