I own several smith and Wesson's and while this gun does not quite match up on fit and finish, it sure comes close. Lots of fun to shoot, very accurate and tame recoil, even with 357. I highly recommend this pistol, I will be purchasing more taurus products. Just a beast! Transaction with Buds was great.

First of all I would like to say dealing with buds was great. Now about the revolver, got it home shot 40 or 50 rounds through it no problem, then all of the sudden every 4th or 5th shot the cylinder would lock up, it seems to be the child proof lock engaging on its own. I am contacting Taurus now to see about repairing the problem. It really gets on my nerves buying a new pistol "a revolver at that" and end up having firing issues right away.

I LOVE THIS REVOLVER THAT HOLDS 8 SHOTS, unlike any other. This gun has sold me on the Taurus brand. I have put about 500 rounds of 357 and 250 of 38 special through it with no issues at all. It is dead on accurate with the 6.5 inch barrel, the sights only needed a slight adjustment and have held zero since. Shooting 38 special almost has no recoil at all it feels like I am shooting 22LR. When shooting 357 mag the recoil is not bad, muzzle flip is only an inch or so absolutely manageable even with one hand. The ported barrel definitely works to counteract this. I would absolutely recommend this gun to anyone who wants to get into the 357 world, for less than $600, it is a steal without sacrificing quality. Also Taurus offers a LIFETIME WARRANTY that covers not only the original owner but anyone who buys it used after.

Winters finally ended and I got out to shoot my Taurus 608. Not surprised. Own 4 Taurus handguns and they're all shooters. This one shoots 1.250" 8 shot groups at 35 yds using W296 and Hornady 158 gr XTP's. 6.5" SS is very nice looking too. With the porting the recoil is non existing. First time buying online and the experience with Bud's was excellent. Definitely do again.

The Taurus 608 .357 magnum with 6.5" barrel is simply an outstanding firearm; very accurate out of the box with very little recoil! I didn't want to spend the money for a similar S&W, so I decided to go with the Taurus; my first time purchasing from Buds Gun Shop and a Taurus product - both were excellent choices! I will be purchasing all my future firearms from Buds since they provided the best prices, customer service, funding options, excellent FFL recommendations, warranty support and the list goes on. I fired my new Taurus 608 for the first time today and it performed flawlessly; absolutely perfect in appearance and operation. Guns come and go, but this firearm will stay with me forever. I'm also thinking about purchasing the Taurus .44 magnum "Raging Bull" based on this very positive purchase experience. Thanks Buds! Thanks Taurus! I highly recommend this revolver for all types of shooters; indoor ranges to hunting outdoors.
