Taurus International Manufacturing, Miami, Fl. - USA Complaint - Taurus PT709 Slim 9mm Handgun
I purchased a Taurus PT709 9mm Handgun from Gander Mountain, Houston, TX, and have had several problems with the gun from day one. Misfires, in fact when the gun would heat up it would not fire at all. Also, there is a "rub" on one side of the slide were the round enters the chamber from the clip. I returned the to gun to Gander Mountain, who sent it back to Taurus for a warantee repair. When I went to pick up the gun, Gander Mountain wanted to charge me $40.00 for shipping and handling. I told them to keep the gun, it was not even worth $4.00. The Sales Person said I should sell the gun, I informed him that I would not even give the gun away. I have a KalTec 9mm, a Springfield XDM 9mm and a Glock 19 9mm, and have never had any problems with any of these guns. I will NEVER buy another Taurus product again. I purchased the gun on a recommendation from a Sales Person at Gander Maountain.
