    I went to the boonies in the desert today and shot another hundred rounds thru my Taurus 85 UL .38....and no problems. The only problem I have...and it isn't REALLY a problem...is sometimes my inside of my right thumb gets bruised and stings a little when I don't quite hold the thing right.....I may get some softer rubber grips for it....but in general.....a damn good weapon.

    I bought a 605 smooth hammer .357mag a couple months ago. I was shooting with a friend out behind the house yesterday. I had just shot 10 rounds of .38 through it and then loaded it with .357 and gave it to my buddy. It FTF on the third round. Cylinder would not release. Trigger would not pull back the hammer. I took it apart and got it working again. Fired a cyclinder full of .38's have not tried .357's again. I think I'm going to get rid of it now.

    Some of the folks on Taurusarmed.net are noticing when they take the side plates off thier revolvers, they have a bunch of "Goo" inside the actions of the guns... Myself included with my 617.

    However, I shot 1500 rounds through it with no problems, a good cleaning and it looks as good as new.

    I've got a PT111 and my dad has a .357 and .44 Mag. The 111 has been perfect and the .357 and .44 are both deer killers.

    I have 3 taurus products. M44 revolver, PT99 and PT145. Love all of them.
    I did have to send in the M44 after 5 years of heavy use. We'll see how long it takes to get back. My PT99 was used and I have had it for 10 years or so and put 1,000's of round through with no problem. Just got a PT145 and have 200-300 round through that one. No issues. 6-6-08 Round count on PT145 now at approx. 2k.

    I've never experienced any problems with any of my Taurus handguns. I've got a model 85 .38 special, model 66 .357 magnum, &a Tracker .44 magnum. They all perform wonderfully, I've put quite a few rounds through them all, I'd buy another Taurus product in a second Smooth actions, comfortable in the hand. A family member of mine has an older Taurus 38 special (not sure on the model, it's a 6-shot, blued, 4 in. barrel), it was my Grandfathers when he was a security guard in the late 60's, and that shoots nice as well, I put a bunch of rounds through that about a year or so ago &it never skipped a beat &was very accurate. From my experiences with them, Taurus makes good handguns. I've got a couple Smiths, as well as a Colt, and I like them all the same.

    I've got a Raging Bull in .454 and haven't had any problems with it other then after I drop the first Buck every other one in the county leave the area. Loud as can be but a great revolver. Built like a tank, double lockup, nice stock grip, can't go wrong!

    I've had a PT 99F for years and years. Never had a problem with it. Bought a .22 ultralite revolver, not real good. I've only put 80 rounds through it. The trigger binds, the cylinder locks up, it failed to pop the rounds out when I popped on the ejector rod. I'm looking to send it back and see if they'll fix it.

    I miswrote. It failed to pop the fired casings out when I pushed the ejector rod. I had to extract each of the 9 casings manually. I also had to manually move the cylinder to get it to move again when it bound after 36 rounds.

    Taurus 605

    I purchased a stainless steel Taurus 605 last April, immediately I noticed the cylinder had a tendency to bind.
    I thought it might need a period of time at the gun range to be broken in, to cycle properly.
    I struggled with it and found it would only work with PMC ammo, with difficulty. To make a long story short, the cylinder jammed shut, loaded. The trigger mechanism was stripped, and I really don't see how this gun made it to the retail counter. This gun was junk in my opinion from the start. I also have a Taurus model 607 bought a few years ago that no longer operates as a double action revolver. I can't comment on the companies ability or willingness to rectify this situation, as I am now preparing to send these guns back.
    That's my experience to this point.

    Taurus M44

    I just purchased a M44, 6.5 inch. Today was the day I went out and tried it out. Got 6 shots off no problem, but when I reloaded, it would'nt fire and I can't open the cyliner again. I didn't think revolvers could jam! I was told that Taurus was just as good as a S&W, just a little cheaper. I now I have my doubts. I paid a lot of money for this pig. Now I've got to pay someone to get it open to I can take the bullets out for shipping back to Taurus. I'm not impressed!

    I would wager that you have an ammo issue. Empty the cylinder and see if it will revolve with the hammer and trigger.

    A lot of times rounds that are not seated properly will bind up the cylinder. It only takes one round to bind up the cylinder.

    all i can say is i trust taurus, good warentee *although it takes month on a product service* , i've been the proud owner of the new Judge for about 8 weeks now, full size, fires great, acepts the .410 with no problem, at 10 yards its deffinately a stopping force to be respected.

    but with any revolver, check it out when ya buy it, make sure the cyl is not loose , make sure it lines up well with the barrel, all the usual stuff, can bet my dollar youll like taurus firearms.

    I have 2 Taurus hand guns, a 709 slim pistol that has been great, and I love it. I also have a Taurus 94 revolver that is total junk. The 94 cylinder would always bind and it would spray gun powder out the left side. After 200 rounds the cylinder completly fell out of the gun. I'm getting ready to send it back to taurus for repairs. I understand stuff happens and Im giving them a chance to make it right before I judge them on their products. I've never been a revolver guy, so maybe that's half the problem. I like those simi-autos.

    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?

    I just got a 905, gun is great, very smooth trigger. the only problem is the moonclips don't hold the the 9mm rounds very well. They seem to loosen up after using just a few times. But the gun is great.
