    Well a little digging and I found the e-mail address of the President of Taurus Mark Kresser. If the phone call does not go well then he will get a nasty gram

    That is really a shame. No firearm that goes to a factory should come back looking worse than when they went in. I have seen a lot of Ruger guys on RFC say their Ruger semiautos or single sixes went in for "whatever" and came back looking brand new. I have never had to send a weapon back, but I have good service on parts and things from a couple of the other old time firms.

    I have an R1 (Remington) that was shooting about 6 inches low at 25 yards, as has been reported, but I tightened my grip and tried to watch my sight picture and had the last group about 2 inches low and 3-4 inches in diameter. I thought that was outstanding for the first time shootina a .45 and the first time to the range with it. See the last 5-6 holes right at 6 o:clock.

    I hope you get a new weapon back. From a WAG point of view, I would bet your barrel bushing was out of round.
