    I have ten Taurus® revolvers.
    • Mdl 85B2CH 38 Special - 1994
    • Mdl 669SS4CP 357 Magnum - 1996
    • Mdl 85B2 38 Special - 1997
    • Mdl 617SS2 357 Magnum - 2003
    • Mdl 605SS3 357 Magnum - 2006
    • Mdl 85SS2UL 38 Special - 2007
    • Mdl 605SS2 357 Magnum - 2010
    • Mdl 605SS2 357 Magnum - 2012
    • Mdl 85SS2UL 38 Special - 2012
    • Mdl 425SS2 41 Magnum - 2012

    All have performed superbly and I continue to shoot them all almost every week.

    I have only encountered these problems.........
    • Mdl 85B2CH broke a firing pin (part# 19) after 11,000+ rounds. I replaced the firing pin & it's still going strong.
    • Mdl 85SS2UL had the cylinder stop (part# 44) wear down after 10,000 rounds. Called Taurus® and they shipped the part right away. Installed new cylinder stop and now the gun works fine.

    Any time I had to send a gun in they fixed and returned it when they said they would. Specifically.....................
    • Mdl 617 developed excessive cylinder to forcing cone gap (.011") after almost 6,000 rounds. I sent it to Taurus® and they replaced the cylinder (part# 8) and adjusted the yoke (part# 9) *I've since put 3,000+ rounds through it and it's still going strong.
    • Mdl 605SS2 locked up after 5,500+ rounds. Sent the gun in and Taurus® said the problem was not repairable. Taurus®in turn sent me a new gun.


    I will not hesitate to buy additional Taurus® revolvers. They are an outstanding value.
    Here is a wealth of Taurus® information..........

    No Sir. Semi autos just aren't my cup of tea.

    The only Taurus I've ever owned, an elderly Model 65 (tells you how old it was) .357 was rough-looking but quite reliable and had a fairly decent trigger. Thirty years ago I lived for a couple of years with a girlfriend who had been urged to buy a Taurus 85. I thought it was quite a nice little snubby---not the equal of a Smith J-frame, but smooth and solidly built. But I just recently started visiting gun forums again after some years, and it distresses me to read so many reports of erratic current Taurus quality. To my even greater dismay, I'm reading stories of spotty QC in Ruger and even S&W guns. Makes me damn glad my few remaining guns are older and first-class quality.

    What's the problem here? Cost-cutting? Automated manufacture? Some of the stuff I've read about Ruger lately must have Bill Sr. twirling.

    I think a part of the problem is that now, with the internet, one unhappy customer can post his complaints for thousands of others to read. In pre-internet days his sphere of influence would have been more limited, say to the good ole boys at the local gun shop or shooting range. Now he can impact the thinking of thousands of potential gun buyers witha few keystrokes. If two or three or more dissatisfied buyers find each other on a gun forum, you have what now appears to be a wave of faulty products hitting the market. I really do believe this creates a perception that quality control is lacking, but I suspect, in this day of litigation at the drop of a hat, quite the opposite is more likely true. I'm not saying a dud doesn't get out the door now and then, but I do think the impact of those duds is greatly magnified now.
    I have not one shread of evidence or data to support this theory but when did that stop anyone from posting an idea on an online forum. LOL

    Good point, Philco. Hadn't really looked at it that way, but it makes a lot of sense.

    I hope you're right and the QC isn't going to hell as badly as it appears in these forums.

    You can save money on some things in life. Firearms are not a thing I would try to save money on. Buy the best you can afford and you will be happy more often than not.

    Taurus is handing these out with every purchase now. I guess they now realize their product is crap and will probably let you down at the most inconvenientof times. LOL! I heard the new motto is "When it fails to go bang, just start slashing"

    Like any new gun, all have a warranty. If you bought and it failed the first time, I would have sent it back with a piece of my mind about their product at least.

    This is one of many forums highlighting the problems with the Taurus brand. When people, through their own experiences, tell me that something is a piece of crap, I tend to listen. What do they have to gain by lying? Caveat Emptor. If you have been one of the lucky, good for you.

    While the individual that posted the above quoted post only has a few posts, and I only hve 1. what he says makes a lot of sense.

    I own one heck of a lot of firearms and to be honest do not have a problem with any of them. This includes, S&W, Colt, Ruger, Glock, Hipoint carbine, Kreigoff shotgun and yes Taurus. Also I shoot all of them...Lots. I maintain them and they treat me well, and I return the favor.

    Lets be realistic here. If Taurus was as bad as many of these posters claim, they would not be in business.

    Also tired of hearing those people say...save up and get a better one. As if costing more is the god of all answers. If so Glock should not be that great of a gun as they are not a top of the line cost. Of course we have a lot of Glock haters also. I guess that is why they make vanilla and chocolate ice cream...different people like different things.

    Oh well this is my first post here.

    Hi Guys and ladies too, just wanted to say you folks that think Taurus is crap need to watch Jesse Duff shoot in completion with her Taurus, not only does she shoot round after blazing round without a malfuntion, she is also the world champion, I watched her on American shooter yesterday, she competed with a bunch of swat officers, not only did she and her Taurus win, but she was through shooting all her targets before the guys were half way through there's, I really got a kick out of watching her shoot, she uses a Taurus 1911, and she and her gun are bad to the bone. marvin1

    I'm sure she's not using an off the shelf Taurus either...

    I wonder how she would do on a SWAT entry team in a drug house with real threats hiding around corners instead of paper targets?

    One of the downsides to buying a Taurus is, it'll never be worth more than the exact moment you pay for it.

    In other words, they do not appreciate in value. That speaks volumes, whether you like them or not. I've bought and sold lots of firearms over the years. I buy quality and know that down the road, if I should decide to sell, I'll at least get my money back. But, 99 times out of 100, I make money.

    And, I know that I would never carry any Taurus for self-protection. There are other brands and it tends to be a short list.

    When I was first looking to purchase a handgun I was looking at taurus because the price. The guy at the gun store said I'm better off buying a rock. Ended up getting a Beretta and love it. Glad he told me that reading this now

    I own several handguns and shoot them all. I have a Tarus TCP 380 and a 24/7 G2 compact in 9mm and both are excellent handguns. The 24/7 g2 compact has been shot a fair amount and is very accurate. The trigger had a bit of creep but no stacking initially. The more I've shot it, the smoother the trigger pulls. The magazine release required more pressure than I generally need to apply to drop the magazine initially and this also has improved with use. I have had some issues with adjusting the sights as I've wanted to lower my point of impact and I've adjusted the rear sight but I get very little change in he point of impact. I've shot it out to 25 yds and as long as I have a 6 o'clock hold, the gun stays on target and groups well. These two plus a tracker revolver is my extent of exposure with Tarus and I thus far have been pleased. Tarus also has a lifetime warranty which I like.
