Enjoying my first, and so far major issue free, 8 shot .357 Magnum revolver! There\'s some minor issues which I\'ll bring up in this review. Upon receiving the firearm I immediately noticed how dirty it was, which brought to mind other reviews about the same issue, but the gun itself operated smoothly. It would be a benefit towards Taurus\'s reputation if they would just clean their firearms after testing so a pristine item would be delivered to the buyer, and is part of the reason I\'m giving this 4 stars. Shot an estimated 80 rounds of 38 Special P and .357 full power hand loads with little issue though during the last few loads, the cylinder wouldn\'t rotate. I had to drop the cylinder, spin it a little and then push it back into place before it would rotate. Seemed to be an isolated incident as it didn\'t happen again, though I will state that by then the gun was pretty dirty. This brings up something I found upon cleaning it. When I took the cover off to clean & oil the innards, the tip of the recoil rod (the round end) was very rough and had some pin holes/pitting. I cleaned it up with some fine sandpaper & lubed and reinstalled. Still seeing that bothered me as \"hand fitted actions\" as I keep reading about doesn\'t fit as something like that would have been caught and replaced. I can only hope the rest of the components are in better shape. Still it\'s a beast of a firearm in terms of weight which I find to be a positive aspect as recoil is minimal even with hot loads. I really like that it has an adjustable rear sight and that the front sight is easily seen, plus the porting did a fine job of keeping muzzle rise to a minimum. The Double Action trigger is heavy but that\'s expected, & the Single Action is superb! I was able to group an 8 shot string within a 3 inches at 15 yards, and with more practice & sight adjustment I\'m sure grouping will only improve. The grip is decent though I\'m likely going with something that will fit my large hands even more comfortably. For what this large 8 shot revolver cost, and the fact that Taurus has a lifetime warranty, I\'d recommend this model to anyone.

This revolver is a bit of a mixed bag for me. When I first received it, there was nothing about it that I could complain about. Everything was nice, tight, and smooth. Finish wasn't the most refined, but there was nothing wrong with it either. The trigger was particularly great, as was the action overall. Got it to the range, fired one round of .357 magnum, and when I went to cock the hammer for the 2nd round, everything started going bad. The transfer bar sheared somewhere in the middle, caused some major galling and grinding, and locked the action up with a half cocked hammer and cylinder halfway out of line with the barrel with a live round in it. So after lots of safety checks I ended up taking the side plate off, pulling bits of sheared metal and portions of transfer bar out until the mechanisms facilitating proper operation of the action were restored, which let me safely remove the cylinder from the frame and account for the round. After re-assembly, everything worked tip-top minus the fact that without a transfer bar the gun was worthless for its intended function. It is in this regard only that I have to give credit to the Smith design for its superiority in having one less possible point of failure, since even Rugers use the transfer bar system. Anyways, one customer service call later the gun was off to Florida to have a 10 cent part put in that I could have done myself if they'd only sell the parts to normal people (Nothing on Numrich or the like). Shipping was free both ways and my CS experience with Taurus was pleasant. They took care of me that day and I had my revolver back 2 weeks later. It works great now and has ever since. Everything is nice, tight, and smooth, but the one difference is the trigger isn't perfect anymore. There's a slight bit of grit to it at the end of the trigger pull and upon release, however had it been like that from day one I would have no problem with it. It's just that I get spoiled with that first trigger that this one seems that much worse. All in all, it's really a pretty good trigger and at the end of the day, it's a pretty good revolver.

Debated for along time weather or not to buy this gun do to the mixed reviews on the internet but with the warranty that taurus has thought I would give it a shot or 8. Very pleased with the purchase from buds and this revolver. 38sp and 357 fun go ahead buy one.

I bought this gun from buds and it was a good experience it was delivered very fast. However, the revolver itself had a broken transfer bar right out of the box and its factory new. Since then ive sent it to Taurus and still haven't got it back. Never even got to shoot it. And this is my very first revolver, handgun and Taurus firearm. Hopefully ill get it back and have no issues.

I own several smith and Wesson's and while this gun does not quite match up on fit and finish, it sure comes close. Lots of fun to shoot, very accurate and tame recoil, even with 357. I highly recommend this pistol, I will be purchasing more taurus products. Just a beast! Transaction with Buds was great.

First of all I would like to say dealing with buds was great. Now about the revolver, got it home shot 40 or 50 rounds through it no problem, then all of the sudden every 4th or 5th shot the cylinder would lock up, it seems to be the child proof lock engaging on its own. I am contacting Taurus now to see about repairing the problem. It really gets on my nerves buying a new pistol "a revolver at that" and end up having firing issues right away.

I LOVE THIS REVOLVER THAT HOLDS 8 SHOTS, unlike any other. This gun has sold me on the Taurus brand. I have put about 500 rounds of 357 and 250 of 38 special through it with no issues at all. It is dead on accurate with the 6.5 inch barrel, the sights only needed a slight adjustment and have held zero since. Shooting 38 special almost has no recoil at all it feels like I am shooting 22LR. When shooting 357 mag the recoil is not bad, muzzle flip is only an inch or so absolutely manageable even with one hand. The ported barrel definitely works to counteract this. I would absolutely recommend this gun to anyone who wants to get into the 357 world, for less than $600, it is a steal without sacrificing quality. Also Taurus offers a LIFETIME WARRANTY that covers not only the original owner but anyone who buys it used after.

Winters finally ended and I got out to shoot my Taurus 608. Not surprised. Own 4 Taurus handguns and they're all shooters. This one shoots 1.250" 8 shot groups at 35 yds using W296 and Hornady 158 gr XTP's. 6.5" SS is very nice looking too. With the porting the recoil is non existing. First time buying online and the experience with Bud's was excellent. Definitely do again.

The Taurus 608 .357 magnum with 6.5" barrel is simply an outstanding firearm; very accurate out of the box with very little recoil! I didn't want to spend the money for a similar S&W, so I decided to go with the Taurus; my first time purchasing from Buds Gun Shop and a Taurus product - both were excellent choices! I will be purchasing all my future firearms from Buds since they provided the best prices, customer service, funding options, excellent FFL recommendations, warranty support and the list goes on. I fired my new Taurus 608 for the first time today and it performed flawlessly; absolutely perfect in appearance and operation. Guns come and go, but this firearm will stay with me forever. I'm also thinking about purchasing the Taurus .44 magnum "Raging Bull" based on this very positive purchase experience. Thanks Buds! Thanks Taurus! I highly recommend this revolver for all types of shooters; indoor ranges to hunting outdoors.
