This is a wonderful revolver for the money. Mine still has about 70% bluing, no rust, good grips, and a few minor scratches. After over 1000 rounds through it, factory and handloads, no misfires or malfunctions. I highly recommend!!

I got the firearm in good time. It came in full surplus fashion, covered through and through with dirt rust and cosmoline. I cleaned it as best as I knew how to clean a revolver, took it to the range and the cylinder kept jamming up. I took it home and learned how to clean a surplus revolver the right way. Since I got the cakes of dirt, rust, and cosmoline out of the internals, it hasn't missed a beat. My only qualm with it is the bulky rubber grips made for gorilla hands, but I'll whip up some walnut grips and all will be right with the world.

I got a lemon! I inspected the pistol at my FFL's today and it was in such bad condition I refused it. It had rust pitting, deep scrtaches, bent ejection rod, the cylinder had alot of play when locked up and it had a circular sanded out area on the frame about the size of a nickle. I would have been ok with light cosmetic flaws but this was way overboard.

I was one of the unlucky ones. My M82 looks like it has seen better days, frame looks like it was rusty and pitted and was just blued right over. function seems to be okay, not complaining to much for the price. buds great as usual, received day after I ordered it.

Mine arrived today and I have inspected it carefully. I find it as described, and looks pretty much like the picture on the web site. It's not a safe-queen S & W Model 10HB but it is a darn close copy. My bore is near perfect, timing and lock-up is good and the gun arrived clean and well lubed. Mine has a checkered target type hammer and a wide smooth trigger. Single action feels great, but the double-action really surprised me! I have paid good money to have other double actions smoothed up as nice as this piece. Is the metal works as nice as a Smith? No. Is the bluing as deep and rich as a vintage Colt? No. I think I can clean it up a little bit, but am I happy with my purchase.? Yes. Would I trust my life with this gun? Yes. Its loaded now and residing in my "hidey-hole" in the warehouse. I'm not sorry I bought this Taurus from Bud's.

My pistol is NOT a model 82 as it says it is some sort of earlier model that I can not even find a diagram of and forget about finding parts as these guns aren't sold in America. the gun arrived looking like it had been kicked around in a pile of gravel. the finish was way worse than the sample image and I was really surprised that they would sell a gun in this condition. the gun looks like it was assembled from loose parts, the barrel is obviously from another gun as the finish does not match the rest of the frame and it was twisted slightly to the side. on top of all that the firing pin spring is damaged and was crammed up inside the recess causing the pin to fall out and prevent the cylinder from closing and rotating when loaded. this gun is a real piece of junk, save your money and get something better!
