Ordered the Taurus Model 617 from Buds as usual no problems came in 7days , This model IMHO is a exceptional revolver with 7 rounds of 357 this 2 inch stubby barks, recoil is manageable. Shooting 38 specials is sweet, this pistol is heavy for a 2 inch helping the recoil of the 357 magnum round. Its solid. I'm impressed, very accurate, I shot it 7, 14,and 25 yards 7yards bulls and near bull eyes every round, 14 few bulls, vitals 10" 12" easy to hit head, size target at 25 yards I was hitting the vitals almost every round hit the on a man target, I'm no expert shot. Ended putting 150 rounds of 357 and 150 rounds of 38 special, no mishaps. Got to say I love this solid little snubby it's well built, small concealable and accurate, with 7 rounds of 357 you can't beat this hard hitting model 617 for the price!!

Excellent snubbie 7-shot revolver especially for the price I bought it for. I own several Taurus revolvers and they're all enjoyable shooters that work well and have fired everything I've put though them without issue, even full power hand loads. Makes one heck of a fireball with each shot. I'm satisfied with my purchase.

Excellent snubnose .357 from Taurus. Been waiting long to get this firearm as they run out very quick. Easy to conceal and still packs 7 shot. Budsgunshop is the best in terms of price, availability and fast delivery. Will buy from budsgunshop from now on.

This revolver is BADASS! Accuracy with .38 Special is very good, but because of the short barrel the .357 mag. goes a little wonky (keyholes) from 7 yards. But it's plenty good enough for SD. Recoil is very manageable. And having a 7 shot wheel gun is pretty cool, especially with a matching speed loader. I have other Taurus hand guns and like them all, never had any issues.

This revolver is one hot item. Every time it has popped up on the available list in the last few months it sold out before I could raise the funds to purchase it. About 10 days ago it popped up again and I decided that this was it, now or never. 24 hours later it was gone again, I may have bought the last one. I have owned a few different Taurus revolvers over the years and they all did well and this one is no exception, though I never would have imagined paying over 500 bucks for a Taurus. Supply and demand got me this time for sure, as the price of the gun increased by about a hundred bucks since I was still researching it a while back. Thumbs halfway up for that. Now for the gun. I bought a Charter Arms Bulldog a while back (Yes, I am a revolver guy. Some of you act like they are not real guns anymore) and had been keeping it in my car and jacket pocket here and there. The 617 is noticeably heavier but pretty much the same size, only a little bit wider about the cylinder. This extra weight (especially on the front end) does exactly what I had hoped it would do. That is to provide the shooter with more control over the piece. At 21 feet I was shooting mostly orange, with a few Bulls and certainly a few in the white. I went ahead and chewed up the Bull with my P89 for good measure; old fashioned, you knew that. Small hands will do better with single action as it is an itty bitty gun, but I did very well in double action, as the trigger has two distinctive stages and then \"Bang\". Spit out a box of 38 as well as 3 different kinds of magnum loads. Best shooting was the 110 grain 357 Winchester SJHP for recoil and aim. As expected, 158 grain magnum loads were murder on the hand but did just fine. Next time I will be trying some 125 grain magnum loads, but I am not too bashful about any load in this gun. Fit, finish and sights are just fine. Mine did not come with the Taurus written logo on the left side of the barrel and only the Taurus round logo, Taurus Intl Miami FL, serial#, model # and made in Brazil (all on the right side). Caliber is stamped on the underside of the barrel. No problem. Two thumbs up! Buds guns. This was my first internet purchase of an actual firearm. We ordered accessories a while back from Buds and had bad luck with the visa transaction. Not cool. This time my wife used an E check and all I had to be nervous about was this hotter than Hell gun arriving at my dealer in one piece. Placed the order last Wednesday evening, took a couple days for the check to clear our bank and then their bank and my gun was on it\'s way home. About 8 days I guess it took, fast! Next day was yesterday and it happened to be my Birthday. Rolling. Thanks Buds!
