An incredible seven shots available at a moment's notice. The 617 revolvers provide the advantage of the extra round with Taurus' exclusive 7-shot cylinder. Soft rubber grips and low-profile sights make these revolvers a most desirable carry option for law enforcement professionals or for self-defense. Add in a yoke detent, and solid steel construction and there really is no competition for this hard-hitting combination of customer-requested features.

Had a very smooth trigger out of the box but had a lot of problems with timing & the hammer locking up. 1st trip back to Taurus the gun came back with what felt like a 10lb trigger & the same problem with the hammer locking up. The second trip it came back with a decent trigger & the lockup is fixed.

Aside from the headache of having to send it back twice its a pretty good gun. Not the most accurate but serves it's purpose.

Got the gun on 1/18/13 shipping was alot faster then I thought it would be, gun was clean but had a knick on the barrel and on the cylinder and had a ring around the cylinder already. Looked it over looked good, signed for it and took it home, started cleaning it and saw that the barrel was crooked!!. Called taurus on Monday sat on hold for 2 hours to have the customer service guy tell me my eyes were playing tricks on me!, what great service they have, told me the sight dept is 9-10 weeks back logged so that should tell you something. The gun is now at a gunsmith to get it straight at my exspense. Buds service was great. But I don't know if ill buy another taurus, I was so excited to get the gun too.

I finally picked up my Taurus 617 stainless from my FFL today, 01/15/2013. I ordered it on 12/20/2012. With Christmas and the rush on arms due to pending gun control before Congress, my purchase took longer than expected for delivery, but I'm happy with the revolver. It looks great and I can't wait to take it to the range this Friday. I appreciate the fact that Bud's has now placed the tortoise/hare pictures on their site so purchasers can get an idea as to delivery expectations. I've owned Taurus products before and I still think that their "key lock" innovation for firearm security is very appropriate for our times. This was my second purchase from Bud's in three months and I'm very pleased with their service and shipping (once my order reached the shipping department, they sent it out 2nd day air). If you're hanging on the fence over internet firearm purchasing, fear not, Bud's is the only way to go.

Awesome gun for the price. Went through 50 rounds of .357mag with no problem. This was my first order from buds and it did take a long time to get here ( ordered it on cyber monday and got it on 12/11) but I guess it was fine because buds was busy like crazy

I've had my 617 for about a week now, great gun. I have put around 250-300 rounds of a mixture standard pressure .38 Specal, .38 +P, and 158 grain .357 loads, without a hiccup. Recoil with .357 rounds, is a bit rough on the hands by the time you hit 100 rounds, which is totally understandable when shooting such a hot load out of a 2" barrel. I think I've come to the conclusion that this gun will be my "nightstand" gun during summer/spring, and possibly a carry gun during colder months, along with a couple speed loaders. As far as accuracy, I can't complain. Just as someone else has said, it's as accurate as I am. In a self defense situation, I like the idea of having 7 rounds of .357 mag at my fingertips. Overall, a great buy, can't beat it for the price. Seems to be built very solid. I would definately not have any negative feelings about carrying this gun for defensive purposes.
