Shipped immediately, arrived at my dealer within a day. Clean, factory new out of the box. Fired a box of S&B 240gr SJHP's and after a quick 2 click adjustment for windage I was hitting within a paper plate size area @ 25 yards shooting the revolver double action. (my preferred method) Slowing it down to SA tightened it up even more. What's not to love? I know a lot of people bash Taurus, but I've had great luck with them over the years, owning 4. (3 revolvers, 1 auto) The auto needed to go in for warranty work on a broken ejector and even though I had acquired it used at an auction, Taurus honored their warranty and it only cost me shipping. I'm sure this pistol will perform even better once I break it in and get used to it. Fit/finish are as a new pistol should be, no blemishes or scratches, lock-up is tight and action is very smooth in SA & DA. My first Bud's purchase was top notch! Could not beat the price anywhere and it shipped ASAP. THANKS!!

This is my 6th gun from Buds. Always fast shipping and never a problem or glitch. The 44 magnum is so accurate I could hardly believe it. I shot it at close range and at long range and it was deadly accurate. I USUALLY shoot Glock or Springfield handguns and they are lighter. This gun would be awesome if you could use it as your carry gun but at 8 inches not so practical for concealment. It is just plain fun to shoot I would recommend shooting gloves.

Amazing gun! Amazing price! The Taurus cardboard box it came in was ripped and beat up for a new gun but other than that no issues!

Just got back from the 25 yard range shooting this beast for the first time. Fit and finish is very good. I cannot give it a perfect score due to the tight release latch that will need some break in but I'd rather have it tight than loose. I put the Hogue monogrip on all my revolvers and it's an improvement from the stock grip, with deeper finger cutouts. Note that the barrel length is not 8.375" due to almost 1" of oversized port area with no rifling. That's ok because of the stiffness of the fully ribbed barrel... something the 10" barreled Ruger Super Blackhawk lacks for $100+ more. The out of box accuracy was absolutely amazing and the sites were set perfectly with zero need for adjustment. The recoils is only a tad over my 357s using 225gn Hornady FTX. In short, this revolver is highly recommended and I agree with the previous post about trusting this as an Alaska gun, with no reservations.

Nice Revolver! This makes +26 guns & actions I've purchased from Bud's so it goes without saying that I trust them for all my firearm purchases! THANKS BUD!!! Taurus firearms are often thought of as being hit & miss as far as quality & workmanship are concerned. However, they seem to be getting back to the high-quality they once enjoyed before the election of Nov. 2008. If you look through all the reviews of a particular Taurus gun, you'll notice that most of the disparaging remarks seem to have diminished over the past couple of years. This revolver is testament to the pre-09 Taurus I remember. The cylinder is still a little sloppy in the cocked position on the revolver I just received but that seems to be normal these days. And yes, I'm old enough to remember what a new revolver looked like and functioned like in the 50's & 60's. To be sure, this M44 didn't come from S&W's custom shop but it's a good solid revolver with a an excellent DA & SA trigger pull (no creep or grinding with a crisp let off). I only fired one box of PPU's 300 gr. JSP this morning but it was enough to ensure it's functionality. It went BANG each and every time I pulled the trigger with absolutely no issues! Accuracy at 25 yards was exceptional for an old man like me and the felt-recoil with this big heavy factory load was no more than a .357 Magnum in a 4". Indeed, this heavy M44 absorbs most of the recoil and the sight radius on it's 8.375" ported barrel greatly benefits shot placement. The pancake-type grips on this large frame revolver isn't the best and I've not been able to locate a replacement. Still, it's good enough. However, it's a knuckle buster so be sure you wear shooting gloves or a Band-Aid on your middle finger to absorb the recoil from the exposed trigger guard. All said, this is a really nice Taurus product and I would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting a nice target or hunting magnum.
