Taurus 9 Round 22 Mag w/Adjustable Sights/4" Barrel/Blue Fin
[2991041]
$347.00
by Brian N Date Added: Thursday 29 March, 2012
I ordered on February 28th, and my pistol shipped 6 days after my order, I received an email indicating that this was due to an unprecedented order backlog. Otherwise, the transaction was painless and there were no problems upon receipt.

While I'm sure it's obvious if you read the description, be aware that the picture is of the 6.5" stainless model, while the pistol is 4" blued.

The finish is acceptable, but not spectacular. The rubber grips are usable, but not optimal. I will likely replace them with Hogue or finger grips. The revolver is a little over two pounds, and well-balanced. It has a solid, balanced feel. With a good set of grips, I suspect it would feel like part of your hand.

Unfortunately, those are the last positive things I can say about it. I took it to the range with 10 differnt types of ammunition, ranging from the Winchester 28g to the Federal Game-Shok 50g. I had difficulty getting 100 rounds through it. I probably experienced four or five cylinder lockups, the last so severe that a gunsmith had to spend 15 minutes with a rubber hammer getting it open again. I found bits of the tin jacketing from a Winchester 28g round stuck in the frame, so for now, I'm willing to call this an ammunition issue.

I will clean and lube it thoroughly and try again. I gave it a Neutral rating until I test again, but for now I would recommend buying something else.

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars! [3 of 5 Stars!]
