Century Arms--Used TAURUS M82 .38SPL 4" Barrel
by Robert H Date Added: Tuesday 26 February, 2013
O how I want to complain about this gun, but I just can't bring my self to do it. BE AWARE, that it seems there are 2 or 3 different versions of this gun that buds is selling, and you have no preference. Most people received a newer, 3 screw model 82, with rubber grips, some with wood grips. I received a way older 6 screw gun. And it is beat to hell and back, cosmetically that is. That being said, the function of this gun is awesome. The one I received is nearly identical to the Smith model 10, inside and out. Yes the specs are a bit sloppy but mine isn't out enough to cause too much concern. I tore mine apart to find it very clean and well oiled inside. Be careful as the model I received has a detent in the side plate it's self for the cylinder arm(it's kind of a pain to get back in until you get the hang of it.) I put 150 rounds of 158 LSWC loaded with 3.7 grains of Trail Boss with no problems what so ever. Clean shiny bore with cone in good shape as well. The action of this gun is pure butter, crisp 3.5 pound single action pull with around a 9 pound double action trigger pull. Over all I wish I would have received one of the newer model 82's, but am satisfied enough with this one. I put a set of grips off of a 66 on mine, you have to knock the lower pin in the frame out but they fit pretty good. As for Bud's I can't say enough about them. I ordered this pistol around 2pm on Friday, and it was at my ffl Monday after noon. And their customer service is top notch, all my questions were answered very quickly. In closing no matter which version of this model 82 you receive, it will function. It may not look very good, but the description says it all.
