    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I have a Taurus PT908 9mm semi auto (4" bbl) that I bought used. After shooting about 200 rounds thru it I noticed that the front corners of the barrel (block) were getting peened. As it turns out, the recoil spring is broken (it is a steel flat wire type). I have looked all over on the web and have not found anyone that makes a replacement spring.

    I looked at the SIG P228 and P226 (this Taurus is a copy) and I may try the Sig spring (17lb), although it has a shorter barrel by .1" and uses a round wire spring. I believe the standard is 16lb. I think this is why the gun was sold in the first place. Taurus also sells a 911B model that is a copy of mine, but I still cannot find replacement springs for it either.

    Is there a way to cut down or modify a spring by taking measurements and testing poundage? I really like this gun.

    have you tried www.taurususa.com/main/index.cfm

    Maybe it's covered under a warranty

    It should be under warranty,hope they are sending those 4 springs for free! lifetime warranty means lifetime warranty although they will probably want you to send in the pistol,in that case just buy 4 springs,you'll never see your baby gain. lol

    have dealt with taurus
    and when i called about a part, for my 9mm they thought i was stupid for not nowing about LIFTIME warrentee.
    i sent in the broken part, and got a replacement free.

    just make sure you call first mine was held up because of inventory

    it takes floridians along time to count things

    but all in all i was very satisfied

    maybe my barrel is getting warped LOL
    i"ll have to check on that
