This crack opens up with every shot fired and it actually pinched my hand every time. Is this dangerous and can I keep on firing the gun??
It is almost impossible to get a license for a handgun here in SA, so I hope Taurus will replace the frame!??!?
I have fired around 800 rounds through this gun and most were Sellier and Bellot factory ammo.
You need to stop firing that gun IMMEDIATELY. It is no longer safe.
You got a bad deal, Altrisk. The Millenium series had some problems with the frames cracking like that; the newer Millenium Pro series is, I've read and heard, much better, but that doesn't change the fact that yours is broken.
Taurus has a lifetime warranty on everything, so theoretically they will fix it for you. I can't say how long that will take, as I've never used their repair service (I don't own any Taurus guns).
I hope it all works out for you, man.
