Re: Return Revolver for Factory Repair

It has been a while since I shipped a gun to the factory or a gunsmith. I know when I did it you could ship and receive it, because it was already registered to you. I have heard that now it must be "next day/over nighted". If I was you I would contact the factor/Taurus, they will tell you the best way and the legal way to get it to them. They might not even want you to ship it to them, alot of manufacturer's have repair shops do their work.

Good luck, Tony

You can ship UPS but have to take it to the hub to do it. Had to do the same thing last year.

Alrighty then!

Per advice given, contact Taurus for instructions on how/where to send it for warranty repairs. If you bought it from a dealer, that's where I'd start?

Re: Return Revolver for Factory Repair

Every time I have had to return a firearm to the factory, I have returned to the dealer, and he sends it at his cost. No problem, but it means running back and forth.

I just sent back two S&W's - they fronted the shipping both ways. Just had to drop off at FedEx and they had the over night boxes there for free as well.

Cost to me $0.

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.
