    1. My “replacement” gun came yesterday, my FFL called and said a package arrived from Taurus, they sent nothing to he or me about a shipment. I picked it up today and am totally underwhelmed; Taurus took my PT 24/7 OSS Tactical in .45ACP and sent me this pitiful POS, a PT740SLIM. They were generous enough to include one 6-round magazine. No more Taurus for me… How Sr. Juan Camilo Velasquez do you plan to market a company that has business practices such as this? Marketing is one thing, gun owners getting disrespected like Taurus did to the lawsuit folks takes it to a whole other level…IMHO there are too many other good companies that have better quality, design, service and price.

      1. Marketing would be easier if you would make accessory products available for your flagship pistols. I want to buy a half dozen seven round magazines for the Spectrum and you aren’t making any available to resellers or even direct to consumers on your website. There are a lot of us that are otherwise happy Spectrum owners but the lack of magazines makes us wonder if we made the right choice.
