Taurus 851 Protector .38 Spl+P 2" Stainless
by Larry K Date Added: Friday 20 January, 2012
I was disappointed with the purchase of the Taurus 851. Upon receiving the item, I dry fired it a few times, noticing that often the cylinder failed to advance/rotate. I immediately sent it back to Taurus. The gun was repaired and returned in a timely manner, with a list of problems that were corrected.
The gun preformed better, however, during the trigger pull and return, the slightest pressure against the cylinder could again cause it to fail to advance or even rotate backward! I was advised by some that this was not uncommon with revolvers. In my lifetime I have owned many revolvers and still own a few. I have never encountered this problem before. My confidence was shaken with this gun, and I sold it at my first opportunity.
Very disappointing, because this little snubby looks and feels like a perfect pocket revolver
