New Taurus .357 front sight issue
I just bought a Taurus Tracker .357 Model 627 (6" barrel) yesterday. Kinda hard to pass judgment on it since it's so new and I've only fired a few rounds through it, but... I have one little gripe, the cheesy orange sticker on the front sight just peeled right off as soon as I pulled it out of the box. Now I'm debating on whether to glue this back on (cheesy), living with the sight as is, or getting a different front sight altogether. I was so anxious to shoot it when I got home that I didn't put any targets up. I sighted in on an old cob of corn hanging from a squirrel feeder that was ~80ft away. I cut it in half first shot! My wife shot it a few times with .38s and the giggles ensued. She's normally kinda timid when shooting but this thing is a real pussycat with .38s given the weight. Anyway, enough of my banter. Any suggestions for aftermarket sights?
Own Both Auto and Weel Gun
My wife is the handgunner in the family. She owns both a 357 revolver and a 380 auto. The revolver has been a dream, it shoots and functions flawlessly. Four inch ported barrel eight shot. The auto is another story, it has not worked from the start. It will only chamber Rem ammo, all others fail to chamber and even have to be pried from the barrel! The factory states this will go away after about 200 rounds! I'm skeptical about that. And why doesn't it work right from the start?
I have heard from gunsmiths that Taurus revolvers are o.k. but the autos are problems. I guess they are right.
