An incredible seven shots available at a moment's notice. The 617 revolvers provide the advantage of the extra round with Taurus' exclusive 7-shot cylinder. Soft rubber grips and low-profile sights make these revolvers a most desirable carry option for law enforcement professionals or for self-defense. Add in a yoke detent, and solid steel construction and there really is no competition for this hard-hitting combination of customer-requested features.

BUYER BEWARE

When I called buds to advise them and let them know there cash option was not available to me. They were very unaccommodating over 6.75 cents. I have bought 13 firearms from them and they still told me to shove it. (By management over less then the cost of a pizza) Buds has great pricing and good inventory levels but customer service wise is the worst Ive ever dealt with and wont be using them on future purchases. Hopefully their owners will read this and make better decisions moving forward.

Got the gun on 1/18/13 shipping was alot faster then I thought it would be, gun was clean but had a knick on the barrel and on the cylinder and had a ring around the cylinder already. Looked it over looked good, signed for it and took it home, started cleaning it and saw that the barrel was crooked!!. Called taurus on Monday sat on hold for 2 hours to have the customer service guy tell me my eyes were playing tricks on me!, what great service they have, told me the sight dept is 9-10 weeks back logged so that should tell you something. The gun is now at a gunsmith to get it straight at my exspense. Buds service was great. But I don't know if ill buy another taurus, I was so excited to get the gun too.

Ordering was fast and easy. Shipping was also quick.The Taurus 617 was not as describe it was not stainless steel and the grips were not as shown. I took possession of the Weapon because I was ok with the way it looked and felt. Buds Gun shop should described accurately What they are selling.

Decent quality from Taurus. Swapped the grip with one from Hogue (tracker model fits) and it feels sweet in the hand. A little hefty in weight, but really helps with recoil.

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!

Had a very smooth trigger out of the box but had a lot of problems with timing & the hammer locking up. 1st trip back to Taurus the gun came back with what felt like a 10lb trigger & the same problem with the hammer locking up. The second trip it came back with a decent trigger & the lockup is fixed.

Aside from the headache of having to send it back twice its a pretty good gun. Not the most accurate but serves it's purpose.

Great little snubbie for the price. Its accurate for a 2" seems to be as accurate as my 4.25" s&w m&p 9mm. As with some taurus revolvers some small issues with cycling of cylinder . occasionally if you start to squeeze trigger as cylinder begins to rotate if u release tigger of pressure before totaly cycling the cylinder to next round hammer seems to lock in place part way thru travel. Its an easy 1-2 second fix but when you need it that may be to long! Buds was great-5 taurus 3-4.

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.
