Taurus 608SS4 M608 8RD 357MAG/38SP 4"
by Steve S Date Added: Friday 04 June, 2010
This is a great pistol, especially considering the price. It is very solid, and the finish is great on the one that I received. It is nice having eight rounds, and the thing is quite solid. However, it was not without its problems. Like the guy who reviewed this as a "horrible pistol", I had a similar experience. When loading the cylinder with 8 rounds, I could usually get about three to four shots out before the cylinder would jam and not advance. I was pretty disappointed with this, but Taurus arranged to pick up the pistol on the very next day after I called. They fixed it and returned it to me in four or five weeks, and after that, it works absolutely perfectly. I thought the turn-around time was a bit long, but at least the repair was right the first time, so after all is said and done, I am glad that I made the purchase.

One thing to note is that, since it is a revolver, it requires much more thorough cleaning. Dirt gets everywhere! The ports in the barrel on either side of the front site are nice for reducing muzzle rise, but the get the front site really dirty. Also keep in mind that it will blind you if you use this as a defense weapon in the dark because the flash will be super bright coming up out of the ports.
