Excellent firearm I have always been a S&W and Ruger guy this one has as good a finish as either. The feel of the gun was the same a an N frame S&W and the sight was also exactly the same. Function was perfect I ran full bore 158 gr rounds (3 CYLINDERS 24 rounds) as fast as I could It was hot but It never seemed to bind up and the point of aim did not crawl. Recoil was not an issue with the provided grips (rubber-plastic). I made a slight change in the adjustable sights and it dialed in just the way I wanted it. This handgun is in my opinion as good as any I have ever used and the price was way below the similar S&W - rugers . I can see this as useful in the field or for personal defense.

I can't say enough good things about this firearm. Truly, a solid well built revolver that will last many lifetimes!!! Taurus delivers one more time! I currently own more than 7 Taurus revolvers and they're all top notch weapons.

My 4th of 5 purchases from Buds. All great. This taurus is a beast. Minimal recoil with 357 due to its weight and porting. Very accurate. VERY fun to shoot. Only 40 or 50 rounds so far but not one problem. Thanks Buds and Taurus

I have owned this gun now for a few months and have about 200 rounds through it. I really wanted a S&W 686 or 627 but I have had good luck with previous older Taurus revolvers and with a temporary price drop to $377 I took a chance. Taurus quality was much better 10-15 years ago. The gun was dirty and stained when I received it but since I planned on polishing it anyway it did not concern me. A couple of hours with mothers mag polish and the gun looked much better, not shiny but much improved over the matte finish. It also had a couple of significant manufacturing tool marks on the frame and cylinder. The orange tape on the front sight came off during polishing and I replaced it with white paint. It also has the lawyer lock on the hammer that seems to work as advertised. On the first trip to the range it locked up 4 times. After 2-5 shots the cylinder would not rotate and I would need to release the cylinder and reindex it to keep shooting. Rapid fire caused it to occur sooner after 2-3 shots. I had the
rangemaster shoot it and he had the same problem. I took it home intending to send it back to Taurus. Instead I cleaned it and took it back to the range. It shot 50 rounds flawless and I have since put another 100 rounds of 38 and 357 through it without a problem. It must of been a metal spur that was worn off, another example of poor QC. Does it have the quality of a S&W or Ruger? No way. Do I trust it as a defense weapon? Not yet (maybe after another problem free 200-300 rounds). Taurus should ship these guns in better cosmetic condition and without tool marks. They also need to work on their QC as this seems to be a trend in these reviews. It comes back to you get what you pay for. I should have spent the extra and got a S&W.

I am an avid shooter, products liability lawyer, and second amendment lawyer. I have defended manufacturers for years and suit manufacturers for defective products.

The problem with this product became evident immediately. I used three different types of 38 special ammo and the gun again misfiring after about 50 rounds. Two days later I tried 357 rounds and the situation was even worse. There witness marks of the firing pin on only two of the eight rounds. Aftermarket quality control or quality assurance is unacceptable. While a beautiful weapon, it will not work as a self protection item for California if it misfires. This weapon should be a perfect self-defense weapon for California and its restrictions. Right now the gun is being examined by gunsmith to determine the cause of the misfiring. It appears as though this may be a problem with Taurus sequencing. I do not believe the weapon is unreasonably dangerous by itself, but the failure to fire consistently makes it potentially dangerous. I thought that Taurus had solved these problems.
