The weapon arrived very quickly, I had to completely clean the Taurus as it ships with all kinds of crud in it. This isn't exactly unusual for Taurus...ALL my guns from Taurus come filthy. The gun functions smooth now. I recieved it with some faint scratches in the finish, so I'm a little dissapointed with that. The grip it ships with are small so I ordered a rubber extended grip from Taurus (Part 4-304)(Combat Grip) for $9.00 and $4.95 shipping directly from Taurus. The "nub" used for cocking it is REALLY hard to use. I have a blister on my thumb from it. Both the trigger pull and the cocking are extremely hard. My wife could not pull the tigger it's so hard. OK for me though. I'm hoping it'll become easier over time. The gun shoots at least 12" low at a distance of 10 yards. You can even tell just by eye sighting it that it's going to shoot low. I'll have to take it to my smith and have the front sight ground down to adjust it. Other reviews state the same thing so it must be that all 651's are going to shoot low.
The recoil is manageable with .357 mags ( I used Hornady crit. defense) and very resonable with .38's. Keeping in mind it's a 2" barrel, it's not bad. The wheel rotates freely(after severe cleaning), rounds are extracted easily, loading is easy (haven't tried a speedloader) and it's a breeze to clean. It fits very well in my back pocket in my bluejeans, and a little tight in the front pocket. It's balanced well, fit and finish are OK to good (scratches on finish and big gaps at bottom of grip between rubber and frame..not so with the extended grips.) The front end of the barrel seems very sharp, I'll have my smith look at this as it might need a little filing to smooth it out...just a little sharp, but enough to notice.
Overall, a good little gun (after cleaning) for it's price and considering it's a Taurus.
