Taurus Offering $35 Rebate on New Spectrum Purchases

Taurus USA announced this week that they are offering a rebate on the purchase of a new Spectrum micro pistol.

Running now through Dec.31, 2018, purchasers who submit a rebate form along with the original product UPC(s), a copy of a dated cash register receipt, and/or a dated itemized sales invoice will receive a $35 Taurus Visa prepaid card.

To qualify, “all rebate submissions must be postmarked by Jan. 31, 2019,” states Taurus USA.

Chambered in .380 ACP, the Spectrum has a number of features that separate it from the other pocket pistols on the market. For starters, purchasers can choose from dozens of color options to customize the gun’s frame, slide and overmold as they see fit.

Plenty of cool color options to choose from.

Beyond the aesthetics, design enhancements include soft-touch overmold panels on the slide and grip for improved retention and recoil mitigation, a true double-action-only trigger system (with no pre-cock or pre-load) that breaks between 7-9 pounds, a no-pull-of-the-trigger disassembly and an integrated striker block for added safety.

Capacity is 6 rounds with a flush-fitting magazine and 7 rounds with an extended magazine.

MSRP for the Taurus Spectrum is $280 for standard colors and $305 for house colors. Pricing on GunsAmerica for the Spectrum is in the $235-$250 range depending on the color scheme.

With this rebate in play now, purchasers could score a new Spectrum for just over $200!!!

    But, but, but . . . it has a life time warranty! Truth of the matter is, you’re gonna need it.

      Lifetime warranty will cost you $50 up front as they require you to send your weapon overnight air.

    There is a reason Ruger came out with the LCP II. A 7-9 lb double action trigger is a no go. Yes it is better than a rock for defensive purposes, but it is just about as accurate.

    So Taurus brought this out to get on the “brightly colored” bandwagon or what? Not sure why so many people want a pistol that makes itself, and the person holding it, a more visible target.

    Taurus already has several small, lightweight polymer-framed pistols ranging from .22 to .40 caliber, including the most concealable .380 mouser of them all (the “Curve”). Why’d they bring this out in a market that’s already over-saturated by just about every major pistol maker and some you never heard of? Not surprised they’re already offering rebates to move them.

    I bought one this past late winter.. First on the order of 75 rounds with 20 of them failing to go off… I sent it back after having a dickens of time trying to navigate the horrendous Taurus web site to find information about returning it. It’s back and thus far (after 50 rounds) no problems. That being said, I’m not sure that I still trust its reliability. While $200 may seem inexpensive, what is your life worth of the pistol does not go “bang” when you need it to?
