As you may already know, Taurus International settled a whopping $239 million dollar “product liability class action suit” in the federal courts. The reason? A defective trigger design. Yikes!

However, the lawsuits keep piling in.

The latest iteration of lawsuits, filed in the company’s home state of Florida, suggest the company knew about the “drop-fire defect” but failed to adequately warn consumers.

In August, Nicholas Adams filed a civil case against Taurus. He was left with severe muscle damage after the defective pistol fell off a book shelf and discharged upon impacting the floor. The gun’s safety was even engaged.

The bullet went straight through his left hand and knee. The extensive damage included bone injury, and nerve and muscular damage.

Adams’ case was preceded by another suit filed by the estate of Nelson Martinez, Jr. in April 2016. Court documents show that Martinez purchased a used Taurus PT 24/7 in early February 2014. A couple of months later, while firing the gun at a Florida range, Martinez experienced a malfunction in which the gun fired multiple rounds with only one pull of the trigger.

The sad part is: Martinez actually reported his issue to Taurus. They suggested he send the gun in for repairs, so he did. A month after receiving it back from Taurus’s facility, the gun fatally discharged when he dropped the gun. The round struck and killed him.

While Taurus has tried their best to have cases thrown out, their requests have been denied.

    They should have made sure the gun was safe before they put them on market and the one they got back for repair they should of fixed it right to start with before they sent it back

    So, why was the weapon falling off a bookshelf??? You have to master a weapon, which means controlling it always. One shouldn’t put a weapon on a bookshelf!!! Actually mine is in an IWB holster or under my armpit in bed!!!

    Now, if the weapon was a 1911 and cocked, relying on the safety to restrain the hammer was not wise, resulting in the user being as culpable as Taurus…

    Y’all have fun with that…

    So many corporate leaders who refuse to accept problems and fix them. This is so typical of corporate leaders. Like the ones in Target who support transsexuals at the risk to women. Or Home Depot who, as far as I know, still support the radical homosexual agenda.
    And AT&T, whose CEO was key to forcing the Boy Scouts into accepting homosexuals in their ranks, definitely endangering thousands of innocent boys.
    Don’t forget Progressive INsurance whose CEO is working for the fall of America.
    And then we have the host of business who insist on using mostly black actors in their ads when America is only 12.7% black.
    Such is wisdom? I think not. Such is wickedness of those who determine that they would rather bankrupt a company than show respect for the rights of the majority.

    As no official forensics have yet been presented, at least here, it would be best to wait before engaging the defensive or offensive diatribes.

    Taurus needs people in the repair dept that are qualified tecs. I sent a 327 Mag rev. back three times ea time they said the same thing was wrong said the fixed ir. the third time a letter went to the Pres. just prior to the return. I told them what was wrong and until higher up got involved it wasn’t fixed.. It works ,but what wanted to be a very accurate rev. is only a CCW “combat accuracy one thanks to their butchering. I enclosed a letter to the repair dept manager on the second return, no no avail,..I also have one of the PT745 that was listed in the first suit. I can’t get it to do anything it’s not designed to so it’s not going back for a chance to be messed up.
