Taurus tcp recall

Taurus tcp recall DEFAULT

Note: A website had been set up for people to find out information about how to return their pistols. The process, however, is pending a judge's final ruling on a settlement. The judge is to rule in January.

To read about the website and a new lawsuit filed against Taurus by the father of a boy killed by a Taurus pistol go here.

Original story: Firearms manufacturer Taurus has agreed to a voluntary recall of nearly 1 million pistols as part of the settlement of a lawsuit that alleges nine handgun models had defects, including one that caused some to inadvertently fire when dropped.

"This is not an anti-firearms lawsuit. This is a defective product lawsuit," said Birmingham attorney Todd Wheeles, co-lead counsel representing plaintiffs in the 2013 federal lawsuit. "This hopefully will help save lives by taking defective firearms off the street."

The settlement affects customers who bought the following models sold between 1997 and 2013 in the U.S., Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam:  PT-111 Millennium; PT-132 Millennium; PT-138-Millennium; PT-140 Millennium; PT-145 Millennium; PT-745 Millennium; PT-609; PT-640; and PT-24/7.

Despite the voluntary recall, Taurus denied in a statement Friday night that there are any design defects in the models.

"Neither the settlement nor the allegations in the case include any of the popular Taurus G2 model pistols," according to the Taurus statement.

Details concerning the nine pistols and how and when to submit a claim will be provided in the near future, according to the Taurus statement. "Claims will be handled by a Third Party Claims Administrator (TPA). Once the Claims Period opens, the Taurus Companies will provide notice through digital and print outlets. All claims should be made through the TPA."

As of early 2013 the nine models were no longer manufactured and distributed in the United States. The company is headquartered in Brazil, but it has operations in Miami.

A federal judge in Miami on Thursday preliminarily approved the settlement that calls basically for Taurus to do three things for customers:

  • Provide an enhanced warranty to allow any owner - even if it isn't the original owner and for the life of the pistol - to submit the handgun for inspection and repair, if possible. If the defects can't be repaired Taurus will offer to replace the pistol with a similar new one. Normal inspection and shipping fees and labor costs will be waived.
  • Produce on-line safety training videos for those customers who bought the pistols to show them how to handle and carry the pistols to avoid dropping them and how to ship them for warranty repairs.
  • Allow customers who bought the pistols to send their pistols back for cash payments. The payments will vary up to $200, depending on how many pistols are returned.

The lawsuit alleges that there were safety defects in the nine models that caused them to fire when the trigger is pulled even though the safety in the "on" or "safe" position and others when dropped or bumped, a notice that will be published and sent to customers states. The alleged defects are attributable to the lack of a "trigger safety blade" within the semi-automatic pistols, the lawsuit claims.

Under the settlement total cash payments are capped at $30 million. According to court documents, the plaintiffs' attorneys also are seeking up to $9 million for fees, costs and expenses.

The federal judge is to hold a hearing in January to determine whether to give final approval to the settlement. In the meantime the judge has set out deadlines for the company to publish notices and the safety videos.

Wheeles estimates that with the cash payment cap, repair and replacement of guns, and attorneys' fees, the cost to Taurus will eventually total more than $50 million.

Efforts to reach a Taurus spokesman or an attorney for the company were unsuccessful Thursday evening. But the company has denied there were any defects in those handgun models.

"The Taurus Companies stand by the Class Pistols and vigorously deny all allegations of wrongdoing and liability," a notice that will be sent to customers states.

History of the case

The lead plaintiff in the class-action lawsuit is Chris Carter, a sheriff's deputy in Scott County Iowa who had a PT140 Millennium PRO pistol, according to a summary of the complaint in Thursday's order. He alleged that on July 29, 2013 while serving on a narcotics detail he pursued a fleeing suspect. As he ran, his pistol fell from his holster, hitting the ground and discharging a bullet that struck a nearby unoccupied vehicle.

Wheeles, who had handled more than a half-dozen lawsuits about the alleged Taurus defects, said he was contacted by Carter, who later came to represent the class of customers who had the gun models. "It kind of fell in my lap," he said.

Wheeles, of the Birmingham law firm Morris, Haynes, Hornsby & Wheeles, said he then got with David L. Selby , II and his firm Bailey & Glasser, LLP. That firm has handled a number of class-action cases. Selby is also co-lead counsel in the class-action lawsuit.

The firms later worked with the law firm Leesfield & Partners, P.A., and attorney Angelo Marino , Jr. in Miami where the lawsuit was filed.

Wheeles said his first lawsuit against Taurus and defective handguns involved an Etowah County man, Adam Maroney, who was awarded a $1.25 million verdict by a jury. The company later settled for an undisclosed amount.

Maroney had alleged that his holstered handgun fell out of a pocket and fired when it hit the ground. A bullet struck him in the upper thigh and ended up in his left lung, Wheeles said.

During the Maroney trial the president and CEO of Taurus testified that drop tests were not conducted on the guns, Wheeles said.

Below is a video of drop tests conducted by an expert for the plaintiffs.

5 hours ago The low profile and fixed sights leave nothing to snag. The Taurus 738 TCP is about as sleek as a gun can be. The slide lock is almost flush to the frame of the gun which keeps the surface smooth but can be a little tougher to release. You commonly don’t see a manual slide lock on a gun this size, so this is a very nice plus.

Taurus (manufacturer)

Forjas Taurus is a Brazilian manufacturing conglomerate based in São Leopoldo, Rio Grande do Sul and Albany, New York. Founded in 1924 as a tool and die forging plant, the company now consists of Taurus Armas, its firearm division, as well as other divisions focusing on metals manufacturing, plastics, body armors, helmets and civil construction.

History[edit]

Taurus .357 Magnum Model 605
Taurus Tracker 627 .357 Magnum

Taurus produced its first revolver, the Model 38101SO, in 1941. Beginning in 1953, it exported revolvers to the U.S. market through a series of importers.

In 1962, the Bangor Punta Corporation, then the parent company of Smith & Wesson, purchased 87 percent of Forjas Taurus, allowing the two firearms manufacturers to easily share information regarding design and manufacturing. In 1973, Taurus was purchased from Bangor Punta by its current owners, and its ties to Smith & Wesson were severed.

In 1981, after Italian arms manufacturer Beretta had completed its contracts to produce firearms for Brazil's military, Taurus purchased Beretta's São Paulo manufacturing plant along with the tooling, technical drawings, and work force necessary to produce several different pistol designs.

In order to more effectively tap the U.S. market, the company created a subsidiary, Taurus International Manufacturing Incorporated, also known as Taurus USA, in 1988.

In 1995 Forjas Taurus purchased the rights & equipment to manufacture Rossi brand revolvers. They currently manufacture three .38 Special models and four .357 Magnum models under the Rossi name, manufactured in São Leopoldo, Brazil. In 2009, Heritage Manufacturing was also purchased and its production later moved to Taurus' Miami, Florida plant.[2]

Products[edit]

The current product line includes steel-frame pistols, polymer-frame pistols, revolvers, and law enforcement weapons (submachine guns and rifles), the latter intended for the domestic Brazilian market. The company manufactures and sells its firearms for generally less than other manufacturers due to low labor costs, as well as having the facilities available to build virtually every part themselves.[3]

One writer said in 2010 that the "[q]uality of Taurus handguns in the modern era is second to none".[4] In 2015, Taurus settled a lawsuit for $39 million and recalled nearly one million handguns produced between 1997 and 2013 due to "safety defects".[5][6]

Firearm model overview[edit]

Taurus was originally known for manufacturing revolvers similar in design to those offered by Smith & Wesson.[7] The company moved away from this realm by offering larger framed models such as the Raging Bull (.454 Casull) and Raging Hornet (.22 Hornet) revolvers as well as the Judge 5-shot revolvers (.410 bore and .45 Colt).[8]

One of Taurus' most successful semiautomatic handguns has been its PT92, a model similar to Beretta's model 92 line, but with the addition of an ambidextrous frame safety, rather than the Beretta's slide-mounted safety.[4]

The most recent addition to the Taurus pistol lineup is a copy of the Colt 1911.45 ACP pistol, the PT1911. This slightly redesigned and updated design offers many features.[9]

Recall and settlement[edit]

Nine of their more popular models manufactured between 1997 and 2013 have been issued a voluntary recall in 2015. This is around one million pistols and includes the following models.[10]

  • PT-111 Millennium
  • PT-132 Millennium
  • PT-138-Millennium
  • PT-140 Millennium
  • PT-145 Millennium
  • PT-745 Millennium
  • PT-609
  • PT-640
  • PT-24/7

A class action settlement has also been agreed to which amounts to almost 39 million dollars due to the defective models.[11]

What You Need to Know About the Taurus Pistol Recall

The Taurus Pistols

You either love ’em or you hate ’em, but Taurus pistols have been around for a while now. They always come under fire for making junk semi-autos that do not perform when they should, though.

They’re no Walther PPK. Unless you’ve been living on Mars, you and most gun owners know that Taurus got dragged into court a lot a few years ago with many a class-action lawsuit.

They have recalled many of their dangerous guns that don’t always go bang when they should as well as their firearms that sometimes DO go bang when they should not. This article explains what you need to know about the Taurus pistol recall.

Taurus Pistols Recalled

Unfortunately, at the time of our original post, Taurus Guns’ Facebook, Twitter, and website did not have any information about this voluntary million-gun-recall. There are a Taurus recall forum and a Taurus recall website though, from which you can get the latest update on the Taurus recall status.

The recall included nine of their more popular handgun models manufactured between 1997-2013, namely:

  • Taurus PT 111 Millennium
  • Taurus PT-132 Millennium
  • Taurus PT-138-Millennium
  • Taurus PT-140 Millennium
  • Taurus PT-145 Millennium
  • Taurus PT-745 Millennium
  • Taurus PT-609
  • Taurus PT-640
  • Taurus PT-24/7

Once the recall period for the pistols started in the fall of 2015, all transactions were held by a third party, rather than Taurus.

Why Does This Matter?

https://www.instagram.com/p/BahECZxn7WR

No doubt, this was a big blow to the ailing gun manufacturer who just can’t seem to get their act together in producing decent and reliable semi-automatic pistols.

What Is A Semi-Automatic Pistol? It is a pistol that fires a bullet with each trigger pull, then prepares another discharge right after.

At the time, some have estimated the total cost for the company to be somewhere near the 50 million dollar mark.

That is, once the recall is over and everyone, including attorneys, have been paid. While a settlement is nice and all, not everyone got covered by this.

Woes of a Company with a Lawsuit

To make matters even worse for them, why would anyone want to buy a gun from a company with a class-action lawsuit and who needs to recall that many Taurus pistols? I know many law enforcement officials who chose Taurus firearms.

Imagine what they would say if they heard about the settlement Taurus is providing for their faulty firearms. Oh, I know why. Because, even though they “voluntarily” recalled almost a million firearms, Taurus said that the pistols on that list didn’t have any defects…

You know, because those accidental discharges that could have killed someone don’t mean squat. And because companies recall products without defects all the time.

A trigger that fires when you don’t hold it is a really dangerous thing. Handgun models are not supposed to work like that.

Public Apology in Order

Taurus, I have a novel idea that goes something like this: Admit that your Taurus pistols were faulty, then apologize for it and let the gun community at large know how very sorry you are.

Also, let us know that a Taurus pistol recall will never happen again. Don’t say that the guns didn’t have any issues when it is apparent that at least some of them did.

If a gun fires the trigger by itself, there’s something inherently wrong with your production.

Our Suggestion

Will you lose some customers along the way? Sure!

But, at least you’ll save face with the unforgiving gun community. Then, after you’ve made a better product, prove it to us by sending them out for gun review.

After a while, you’ll be able to gain back some of the customers you’ve lost, while gaining new ones once you make a superior product. You can’t rely on a settlement after settlement alone because that is a bad business practice.

This story first broke somewhere else, first. Here is the link to that original story on Taurus pistol recall. Make sure you read it because they covered some details that I left out.

For more information on the Taurus pistol recall, here’s a video from Stout Sportsmen:

In the end, all we want is a reliable gun for self-defense from a company who won’t lie to us and tell us one thing, when the facts show otherwise. Safety is an important factor that consumers consider for certain firearms.

When you’re ready, Taurus Handguns, I’ll be here. Ready to write up your first gun review.

Taurus TCP .380 Feeding Issue

TAURUS RECALLS THEIR TURD

Photo via Taurus USA

A batch of Taurus Curves, affectionately named the Taurus Turd here at Guns Save Life late last year, have been recalled by Taurus USA.

Why?

Taurus forgot to stamp the barrels on some guns with the caliber (.380 Auto in case you’re wondering).

Not a function issue and probably not a safety issue for those with intelligence quotients a little higher than room temperature, but nevertheless, they are wanting them back.

 

From Taurus USA:

We recently discovered that a batch of the new Curve™ pistols left our facility without the caliber (.380 Auto) prominently displayed. We are requesting that these firearms are returned to us for proper marking. There are no quality or safety issues with these firearms. The marking error has been corrected and we are currently producing and shipping Curves to meet the significant demand for this product.

We have been in contact with our dealers, distributors and retailers and are in the process of getting the products they had in stock sent back to us. Given the excitement surrounding the Curve, many firearms have already been purchased by consumers. Our Customer Care team is ready to expedite the return and marking process and can be reached at 1.800.327.3776 by selecting Option 1 for Customer Care and then pressing 8 for priority service. More information and directions on how to return a firearm for marking are also available at www.taurususa.com/curvereturn.
We are grateful for all of the support for this exciting, new and different product. We take quality and meeting our customers’ needs very seriously and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused our Taurus® fans.

Taurus pistol recall: Gun owners have until Feb. 6 to file for free return, fix or cash settlement

INDIANAPOLIS -- Gun owners that own a potentially defective Taurus pistols only have until Tuesday to get in on a class action settlement.

Those who own the guns have the option to get them replaced or repaired under a settlement class action lawsuit filed last summer.

The lawsuit alleges that nine handgun models had a faulty design that allowed the pistol to inadvertently fire when dropped or to be discharged when the safety feature was still on.  

As part of the $239 million settlement, Taurus agreed to a voluntary recall of 1 million pistols.

Taurus pistols included in the settlement include the following models:

  • PT-111 Millennium
  • PT-132 Millennium
  • PT-138 Millennium
  • PT-140 Millennium
  • PT-145 Millennium
  • PT-745 Millennium
  • PT-609; PT-640
  • PT-24/7

The “Pro” series of each model is also included in the recall.

The claims period runs through February 6.

Per the settlement agreement, the company is offering three options: a cash payment, enhanced warranty or safety training.

Under the three options, gun owners can receive up to $200 cash in exchange for their defective pistol or they can have their pistols inspected and repaired at no charge.

Taurus will also publish free online training videos and instructions on how to properly operate and handle the Taurus pistols.

The company is covering all shipping and handling costs but says members should review their state and federal regulations before shipping off their weapon. Detailed instructions can be found on the settlement website.
