No kidding! Using reloads voids the warranty on almost all firearms and many companies would only service the firearm at the owner's complete expense.50.00 seems like a reasonable fee when they could probably have just refused to work on it. I doubt the local guy will charge less than that if you can even find one competent to work on it, plus if it needs parts I can't imagine those are easy to get from Taurus.
Note on the LCR (I have one). Check the reset before you commit. There's a click before the actual reset that if you pull from there, you won't engage the pawl that spins the cylinder. Not an issue on the range but would suck if you short stroked the trigger during a DGU.Oh man! That's great advice! I'll definitely check it out. Thanks!
That makes sense!In most technical work, a bench fee is only the inspection and diagnosis. That wold not be a total repair cost. At minimum parts would be added, and any time that is above the time defined in "bench time" would be added. I don' think Taurus is going to effect a guaranteed repair for $50.
I'll second the S&W J-Frame recommendation. I have a model 360 and absolutely love it. It's small, light, and accurate. Mine is chambered in .38+p and has a steel cylinder, but they also make a .357 magnum version with a titanium cylinder. I've shot them...recoil is quite stout. I'm happy with my .38.Now THAT looks like a real contender! Nice looking pistol!
