      Taurus Mod 942 SS .22 Magnum - Questions

      I haven't owned a .22 handgun for a long time now and I am considering buying one for plinking when I go for walks in the desert. Years ago, I had a S&W but I'm not sure of the model number now. I think is was a model 64 blue steel but that's just a guess. Anyway, the only S&W I can find are all alloy now days, so I'm looking hard at the Taurus Model 941 - 8 shot .22 mag in SS with a 4" barrel. I have found a few articles and they all speak highly about it's qualities.

      Is there anyone out on this forum that owns one or has experience with one. Any input will be appreciated.

      My dad just bought one the other day (941SSUL 2") and it seems to be a "good" gun except that the trigger pull is extremely heavy. Some models have an adjustment for that but this one does not and it must be at least 8-10lbs. I think that it has the heaviest trigger that I have ever seen on any pistol. I didn't have a guage with me but it was heavy. Probably needs a gun smith to look at it.

      Taurus 22 mag

      I purchased one for my wife 2" barrel stainless steel. Nice looking gun, to bad she never had a chance to shoot it.

      After I purchased it I went to the range anxiously wanting to shoot this thing. I have owned 4 other Taurus guns and have never had a problem whatsoever.

      Anyway at the range, I had many problems, cylinder would bind up every 3-4th shot, bullets seemed to be going thru the target sideways??? Trigger pull was terrible in single or double action.

      So I sent it back to Taurus explaining what the problem was, they returned it in about 5 weeks with a test target and explained what the problem was, so I went to the range to shoot again.

      I could not even fire the first shot, loaded the gun, and could not pull the hammer back, nothing.

      At this point I was done with this gun, so I got rid of it.

      I have read similar experiences with Taurus, so my opinion is go buy a Ruger single action or a semi auto target pistol from ruger also.

      Walther makes a p22 that is lightweight and fun and reliable.

      Good luck.
