Re: Think about it, before buying a PT111
Taurus has had some problems, but IMHO a retailer that asks a customer to sign a non-return waiver may be selling used guns or guns that have been bolixed up by a previous owner. So I wouldn't necessarily blame Taurus for that one.
I did look at the video to refresh my memory of the gun and see no reason the recoil spring won't come out just as shown; it is a common setup, not something exotic.
BTW, what sticky stuff? AFAIK, Taurus ships gun with a light oil, not cosmolene.
