Well, back in February I sent my old Taurus in for a warranty/class action repair. After not hearing anything for a long time I called them to find out what was going on. After an interminable wait on the phone I finally got to talk to a human. After a shortish conversation I found out I was eligible to receive a new pistol. While the new one is not a .45, it’s a pretty nice little EDC, a G2C in 9mm. Beats getting a check, I guess. Now all I need to do is figure out what to do with all that .45 APC in my closet. LOL. Fortunately I do have a Beretta Storm carbine in .45.
What happen to your 45? … They should have repaired it or replace with the same model.
They had a class action lawsuit filed on a few models of their pistols and had to issue a recall. Apparently some of the pistols might have been prone to firing when dropped. Personally, I’ve always figured that could happen with semi-autos. Owners were given the choice of getting a check for a fraction of the value of the pistol, having it repaired or replaced. I sent it in and chose the repair option, but they apparently decided to replace it (I am thinking that they might have lost mine in the innumerable pistols they got sent for repair, but that’s a guess). As for replacing it with the same model, that one just isn’t possible. They don’t make it anymore. I’m not terribly put out over it. It was a decent pistol, but I have better and the new one, even at a lower calibre, is a better quality pistol, by all reports. It will definitely be smaller. It looks to be just a bit bigger than my M&P 9 Shield. The biggest hassle will be finding a new holster. That’s always a pain.
