Thanks for the tip; I'll keep an eye on it.

As far as the G2C mag springs, I consider those mags a write-off anyway unless I can find some high-quality substitute springs. A pity; how much would it have cost Taurus to use actual good-quality springs?

Much of the reason that other countries can sell their guns cheaper here has to do with their economy; specifically, manufacturing and labor costs. Price of a foreign-made gun is a very weak indicator of quality; i.e. a cheap gun made in the US is probably gonna be inferior to one made pretty much anywhere else. Like this one for example.....
