If Henry can build a decent product for a good price in this country than anyone can.
Based on my personal experiences, I'll never buy another new Taurus. Based on the fact that their warranties are no longer transferred to subsequent owners, that eliminates their resale value, and eliminates my willingness to take a risk on a used Taurus. I won't buy another Taurus proprietary semi-auto for anything more than disposable pricing. I might take a gamble on a revolver after personal inspection and excellent condition, for very little money...
There's just no point, really. They have dubious reliability and track record, their repair and CS is atrocious, and used versions no longer have much resale. Parts are scarce. Models discontinued arbitrarily. No thanks.
And as for the other author posting buy through Davidsons - Umm ok yeah thats an option but i bet that the distributor wont sell the TEARASS firearm for long when he gets the treatment from Taurus rest of us recieved as he doesnt want or need the hassle or loss eigther.I have a little nugget to drop here.
Buy your firearms that come through Davidson's as the distributor so you NEVER have to deal with the manufacturer. Lifetime replacement guarantee.
Your FFL sends the problem firearm back and get a new replacement in a few days up to 2 weeks tops for long guns coming/going ground.
Shipping is super cheap to cover both ways for around $20 and then you just eat a background check fee, I would not expect anyone to charge a transfer fee. Personally I regularly eat the shipping fees to order someone a firearm from Davidson's over another distributor with free shipping if I don't have faith in that manufacturer's customer service. I won't sell something I have reason to believe will fail. Feel free to ask your local FFL as the odds are very high they have an account with them.
Taurus also Ruined the Rossi brand. They were at one time a quality firearm. Forty years ago l bought new a Marlin Lever action in .357 Mag. My neighbor bought a new Rossi same caliber. His Rossi had a much smoother and lighter trigger pull plus it held one more round in the tube. Now the Rossi is a taurus with the Rossi name,. YUK!Hello:
First let me clarify that im not attacking any of the authors im using in qoates and extend my utmost respect to them as friends.
My thought on the authors thinking that Taurus should change its name and return to production under another name would be same as changing the name of a murder / rapist and giving them another chance to murder and rape some more people.
They had there chance done us wrong so pay the price and go bankrupt out of business GONE FOREVER.
