    Just recieved the 1911 back. I AM PISSED OFF.
    They replaced the slide and said that the accuracy was contributed to a weak groove. They also included a target to verify accuracy 3" group at 25 yards.

    Now what pissed me off.
    This is was a brand new pistol, no scratches, no mars, or dings. This is what I got back (pictures). I'm not anal or a prima donna, BUT my Dad taught me respect and appreciation for fire arms, (I have the knots still on my head, and I'm 60 years old,) and how to dissasemble a 1911 with out scratching the slide lock on the frame . Nothing pisses me off like seeing this.

    The slide is scratched and mared

    I will be making a phone call to Taurus tomorrow and I going up the ladder till I get satisfaction.

    I am still pissed...

    I don't mind honest ware and story marks, but flat out disrespect for a new firearm is unforgivable.

    Good luck. I wrote the CEO of Taurus a letter about his company's inability to repair my mil pro 145. Four trips to Taurus and the thing still would not feed a full mag. I got no reply. They really don't care. Will never buy another Taurus product!

    I don't blame you for being pissed! That's just pure laziness and disrespect. How long does it take to lay a rag under it? Looks like someone thought about as much of your pistol as an old piece of pipe.

    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.
