This revolver is a bit of a mixed bag for me. When I first received it, there was nothing about it that I could complain about. Everything was nice, tight, and smooth. Finish wasn't the most refined, but there was nothing wrong with it either. The trigger was particularly great, as was the action overall. Got it to the range, fired one round of .357 magnum, and when I went to cock the hammer for the 2nd round, everything started going bad. The transfer bar sheared somewhere in the middle, caused some major galling and grinding, and locked the action up with a half cocked hammer and cylinder halfway out of line with the barrel with a live round in it. So after lots of safety checks I ended up taking the side plate off, pulling bits of sheared metal and portions of transfer bar out until the mechanisms facilitating proper operation of the action were restored, which let me safely remove the cylinder from the frame and account for the round. After re-assembly, everything worked tip-top minus the fact that without a transfer bar the gun was worthless for its intended function. It is in this regard only that I have to give credit to the Smith design for its superiority in having one less possible point of failure, since even Rugers use the transfer bar system. Anyways, one customer service call later the gun was off to Florida to have a 10 cent part put in that I could have done myself if they'd only sell the parts to normal people (Nothing on Numrich or the like). Shipping was free both ways and my CS experience with Taurus was pleasant. They took care of me that day and I had my revolver back 2 weeks later. It works great now and has ever since. Everything is nice, tight, and smooth, but the one difference is the trigger isn't perfect anymore. There's a slight bit of grit to it at the end of the trigger pull and upon release, however had it been like that from day one I would have no problem with it. It's just that I get spoiled with that first trigger that this one seems that much worse. All in all, it's really a pretty good trigger and at the end of the day, it's a pretty good revolver.

Debated for along time weather or not to buy this gun do to the mixed reviews on the internet but with the warranty that taurus has thought I would give it a shot or 8. Very pleased with the purchase from buds and this revolver. 38sp and 357 fun go ahead buy one.

I bought this gun from buds and it was a good experience it was delivered very fast. However, the revolver itself had a broken transfer bar right out of the box and its factory new. Since then ive sent it to Taurus and still haven't got it back. Never even got to shoot it. And this is my very first revolver, handgun and Taurus firearm. Hopefully ill get it back and have no issues.

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.
