I don't have a lot of experience with the particular model you're talking about, but I DO have some experiences that might help you.
1. I own a Taurus revolver and it's been flawless.
2. When I worked at a gun shop we sold a lot of Taurus weapons and the owners only came back looking for ammo, not repairs.
I stopped by a local gun shop a couple of days ago and was looking at a Taurus like the model you described like Stevie Wonder might look at it. I liked how it fit in my hand. I didn't talk to the salesperson; I talked to the GUNSMITH. He said he's seen a great deal of the latest model Taurus pistols come back in the hands of unhappy owners with various problems. As there were lots of people around and he was busy I didn't ask for details and he didn't offer any.
Like I said, my personal experiences with Taurus have been good, but lately I've heard some talk of new models being problematic.
