Any manufacturer can improve their products over time. I believe that Taurus has done so. I do not own any of their guns but I wouldn't turn down an opportunity to shoot/own one should it arise. I certainly wouldn't condemn them based on just their early guns.

I've got one of those pistols that feed through the grip, an autoloader. It a Ruger 22/45 and it takes .22 Long Rifle ammunition. I have to get my wife to buy ammunition for it, and even then at a store where we're not know.

I would be happy to take that embarrassment off your hands. For a small fee I won't mention your name when people ask where I got it.

Never had any of their revolvers, would love to give the Tracker 22 conv. a run through, or the new Protector Poly 38+P. I do have a Taurus 92 SS with a Match Barrel that was my Comp. 9mm gun from about 1992 until I stopped competing in 1999. lots of folks pitch a fit over some of their mishaps with Taurus' smaller Autos(mostly the "7" series and the 24/7's),..My Cousin has a 709 for himself and a 738 for his wife,..no issues....

I don't get the Taurus bash I see here on FT. Granted mine is fairly new (M327), but it's fit and finish are just fine, bluing nice and action smooth. Beats me....

Taurus has had some QC problems in the past. not for sure if they have been resolved or not. sometimes buying one it can be a 50/50 shot as to what is going to happen with it. if you get a good one, it will be a very good pistol and will serve you well. if you get a bad one, it may take a bit to get it sorted out and to working properly.

i happen to like Taurus pistols, but until i see an improvement in their QC department, i will pass for now. i would like them to get it sorted our as they have some terrific offerings and some clever designs.
