I got on Taurus' website, submitted a work order, and shipped the pistol back on 8/20/12. Received it back today (9/6/12), which is a two week and 3 day turnaround. Report included wih the pistol said the "mag release worn" and" barrel has irregular grooves". Both were replaced at no charge. Pretty impressed with customer service. Will shoot this weekend to see if it is indeed repaired.
