First range trip: finish is very nice (not "glowing" like in the picture, but that's Photoshop for you) and it appeared to be tightly constructed. Grips are standard, entry-level plastic panels which is neither good nor bad, just what is expected. Shot number one fired dead center bullseye at 10yds - as did the second, as did the third - the nice Novak sights were zeroed perfectly right out of the box. Not a single failure of any kind in the first 100 rounds.
One year and about 15 trips to the range later: I noticed that, after a few months, that the shots started "drifting." They now primarily go about 1-1.5" up and .75-1.0" to the right (at 10yds) and about 4" off at 25yd. I said "primarily" for a reason- there are "flyers"- maybe about one in four - that do something else. Don't get me wrong, the thing is still a decent "duty" gun and can out-shoot most of my friends but if you want this as a starting project-gun for competition then it is call for some concern. Before you say it, no, it is not user-error. I shoot competitively and in a bout of extreme thoroughness I tested it with a Ransom-Rest and came up with the same results. I'm sending in to Taurus to see what they can do with it to bring it back to the .5" groups it used to shoot. Seriously, out of the box it made sub-inch, full-mag ragged holes at 10-15yds consistently and now the groupings have expanded to 2.5" or so.
