My first and last Taurus revolver. Bought this revolver new for my wife because of small grip and less recoil. Cylinder was very hard to open. The gun would cock for five rounds then the cylinder would jam. You would have to rotate the cylinder with your fingers while cocking the hammer with your thumb. I finally figured out that the cylinder was out of square and was binding on the barrel. I had to file down the cylinder in that area. This fixed the cylinder jamming however the trigger pull is just way too heavy for DA mode and the hammer is too small and too hard to cock to use SA mode. I was told by Taurus that the hammer needs to have a heavy spring to ignite the rimfire cartridges. I have other .22 caliber revolvers that don't have a trigger/hammer pull this heavy and they don't misfire. At least Taurus should use a longer hammer for more leverage to cock the very heavy hammer spring.
