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