Sending my 24/7 back to Taurus...

My mags keep falling out while shooting, and its been getting me a little peeved. Looks like the mag catch is worn, and it does feel loose when i do seat a mag in the pistol.

I called Taurus today, asked them the best way to ship my firearm back to them and they suggested going to a central shipping hub of FedEx or UPS.

Just wondering if anyone else has had to ship a firearm off to a manufactuer for repair and what they did for shipping.

Thanks for the input in advance,

Brad

Yet another Taurus going back.

They should pick up the shipping.

But alas, they don't. If you are on a first name basis with your gun shop they will probably send it back for you at no cost. My shop sent my 92 back twice for me before I sold it. I would contact Taurus and have them send you a replacement part. If you are fairly handy you can install it yourself or just have your local shop do it for you.

I have you have another handgun to shoot, Taurus will likely have yours for a while. They aren't known for their speedy turn around time.

At least 2 months. They will ship you a replacement part rather quickly though.
