Guess you could say I am going with the enhanced warranty. Truth being is that they are offering a Lifetime Warranty on a Lifetime Warranty. Difference being if and when I send in the in question firearm for warranty repair I know that there is no way I will ever see it again. Once they have it in their hands they will keep it and send me a replacement of their choosing.

And what ever they send me will be worth at least the cash offer price should I choose to recoup part of my original $.

Some of us have a settlement pistol and have chosen to keep it.
The only reason I mention that is because I consider that an option, which I chose.
I would consider this the enhanced warranty option.


Lets not turn this in to a complaint thread/bash, those post will be deleted.

If you have something like the OSS, there isn't a settlement option that would satisfy me. They are worth a lot more than a PT-111 G2 or $200. So there are a lot of us that were left out in the cold on this.

So your missing a choice, to keep it and never send it back. :soapbox:

At this point, today, are these the only 2 options for people with Class pistols?

Are they no longer even offering a replacement?

I don't have a dog in this fight, but I am curious if anyone knows for sure?

Not sure anyone knows. Waiting game. There has been a lot of conflicting info from multiple sources including Taurus CS.

It's not a very large sample so far but it kind of surprises me the percentage of enhanced warranty there are. Initially I was hoping replacements were going to be issued but now it sounds like repairs are possible? Anyways for me if that's the case would be best to take the $ (hopefully $200) and put it towards another sub compact.

Wow, this should be very interesting. I kept my 24/7 DS, but sent in my old PT140.
. Yep it will definitely be interesting.

Curious to what your thoughts would be if they sent your PT140 back to you with a cheap fix...and you ended up waiting a year or so for it. That is my fear.

Taurus has a fix for the safety defects? Got a source for that?

I opted for Extended Warranty, and sent my PT 24/7 Pro in. I was expecting to get a PT111G2 back, but I'd be thrilled to get a repaired 24/7 back.

Extended warranty.

I like my 24/7 far to much to have it downgraded to a PT-111. A PT-140 wouldn't even be close.

I'm patient. It doesn't get shot much. It should last a while.

All the Best,
D. White

I didn’t skew your poll by casting a vote. I have two settlement covered “defective” pistols which shoot fine and I elected to “stick to my guns”.

I have two 24/7 C , and so far am hanging on to them, if I ever run across anyone (or a gun shop) that will offer anything close to a reasonable price/trade value then they are gone.
Not because of the recall but mostly because of the bad quality/ service I have received by taurus in general.
the only Taurus semi I intend to keep are four 1911 and maybe the old 99.

That was my choice as well.

I remember when all this hub bub hit. I thought about sending my two 24/7's in before I discovered all the service problems Taurus had. I have a few friends who are gunsmiths; so I took my guns to them to be inspected. No function issues were found and I decided the whole thing was just way over blown. So, I chose to keep my guns until I decide to trade them at some future date.

The sad thing is that I keep hearing problems with Taurus customer service. For me at least, that means I don't ever plan on buying another one. But for now, I've been VERY happy with my 24/7's!

You need to have a 3rd option I got my 3 guns replaced with new guns 2 PT 140 G2 & a Pt 809 Glen
Same here - two PT140MP replaced w/G2's and PT111MP REPAIRED and returned under extended warranty. Have three more PT24/7 (1-9mm; 2-.40S&W) configurations that will be held for extended warranty if and when an acceptable replacement or repair is available.
