Taurus PT709 Slim bad sight

Postby colibri » Wed Sep 29, 2010 10:51 am

I purchased a Taurus PT709 on 8/23/10. Took it to the shooting range and couldn't hit the target, even after adjusting the rear sight until my fingers were sore. My son tried it without sucess. Within days, I went a second time I to the shooting range and my brother tried it with negative results. We finally figured that by aiming at the top right corner of a 21" x 25" target we could hit the bottom left corner of the target. I spoke to a company technician and he agreed that it was way off. The company received it on 9/1/10 and as of 9/20/10 they're waiting for a new front sight. A front sight? I could see something wrong with the slide, barrel, rear sight! The company informed me that it takes 5-6 weeks to process. This is not my first handgun, but it surely is very discouraging to find out that an easy fix would take that long. I'll update when I get it to the range again.
