    This thread is a bit well idiotic

    The problem I see here is a bias one because on Taurus guns you read "Made in Brazil" instead of "Made in the USA". I'm fine with that, but at least just say it the way it is.

    I bought a 608 with the 8 3/8" as my first Taurus. I'm a competitive shooter and this was the only gun that fit my needs; no other manufacturer makes a .357 double action with a 8" barrel other than custom shop guns which I cannot use in competition (only stock).

    The gun is well built and at first looks you will mistaken it for a .44 or larger. I did a trigger job myself and the amount of polishing and filing needed was much less than my Super Redhawk (MADE IN USA). Virtually all I had to do was some minor polishing and replace the main and trigger return spring. Now the trigger in single pulls at 3.X LBS..(figure out why the X)! Don't get me wrong I love my Ruger as I loved my S&W, but this 608 is one damn fine gun, made in Brazil or not.

    Overall I'm impressed with this gun. Oh, what about a 3" rose, with no scope at 50'?

    I guess I have been pretty lucky with my "junk" Taurus products. I have two PT-145's that have several thousand rounds through each. I had a PT-24/7 in 9mm that I put about 1500 rounds through before I sold it to my brother in law after he offered me more than I paid for it, and I had a model 415 revolver in .41mag that was a realy fun shooter. I am extremely happy with my newest Taurus, or I should say my son is extremely happy. For Christmas last year, he wanted his first handgun, a 1911 to be exact, and I wanted one with all the bells & whistles. The PT-1911 filled that want/need perfectly. Between he & I we have put over 3000 rounds of both factory and handloaded ammo through the gun with only one problem. I had to adjust the grip safety release point slightly. Other than that it has been flawless. He loves the gun....I loved the price for what he got.

    Hate to be a bad guy here (especially since I'm a NOOB here)

    But, I just had to get rid of my brand new PT-140 mil-pro, much to my dismay.

    Reason: It dropped the mags 15x in 150 rnds.(3 different ones). At first I thought it was me, but, it happened when I switched my grip, & when wife shot it. I had it 1 month and it only happened twice at first.

    I could not duplicate problem any other way except firing.

    Really sucks too, cause I like everything about that gun. From the grip to the sights. I was really hoping to get a PT-111 mil-pro for the wife. Some have said it was because it was a .40, but, I will never know.

    The reason I di not send it in is because I HAD to pay shipping on a 1mos old gun. Taurus refused to. And to here about their turnaround time, it's not even worth it.

    Sad thing is I still want the mil-pro. I may have acted impulsivley, but, I'd never trust that gun again.

    Thumbs up

    This is a follow-up report to my ealier post in this thread.
    I have finally finished the break-in of my PT 92. With over 600 rounds through it I can report having only one F.T.F. (crappy range ammo), and that the P.O.A. / P.O.I. has corrected itself.
    Would I buy another of this series? In a heartbeat. I'm still looking for a PT 908ss for carry.

    My experiences mirror those of most others when it comes to Taurus firearms. I've owned several over the years with absolutely zero
    problems with any of them. For the ones that don't want anymore, that's fine and well - it leaves more for those of us who do.

    I bought the wife a PT22 about 10 years ago and it worked just fine thru 2000 rds. Finally sold it to finance another gun.

    Wait... you mean they admitted they even had it?! The last three or four people I've sent guns back to Taurus for told me they called two weeks in to check on it and Taurus claimed they'd never seen the guns. It took me calling several times for each to finally get them to admit they'd "found" the guns and would start working on them in a few weeks. I make sure to relate that to anyone who is considering a Taurus. I send way too many back to the factory and it always takes a month or two for them to come back. And I've had a few who had to send them back numerous times. One guy turned his in to be destroyed after Taurus had lost it three times in a year and he needed it repaired again.

    I'm not a fan, if you couldn't tell.
