I have had 2 taurus'. One was a PT 111 Pro. The other is a M85 ultralite. Both have had problems. PT 111 Pro was the worst P.O.S. I have ever owned.

I was recently shopping for a 44 mag. Saw a S&W 629 for $775. There was a Taurus for less than $500 right next to it. I bought the S&W. Need I say more?

I have had several Taurus's over the past 25yrs and have never had a single problem with any of them. I would recommend them to anyone and have several different time. Never heard of anyone having a problem with one.

I have an 85 that I've put about 500 rounds through without any issues. In all fairness, I've only had it a few months though. My dim-witted roommate has a PT111 that he NEVER cleans and rarely shoots (I did say he wasn't very bright) and even filthy, that gun has had zero issues.

I own several Taurus firearms,and have had a couple problems.

A 24/7 45acp that had the wrong sights on it.It shot 6" low at 25ft with any type of ammo.Taurus sent it back saying there was nothing wrong,I then looked for some aftermarket sights but none are made,so that gun is gone.

I have a timing problem with a Tracker 22lr revolver,but my gunsmith will be fixing it.

I will not send a firearm back to Taurus for repairs,they either take forever to fix it,or they don't fix it at all. It is just easier to get one of my gunsmiths to fix a problem and leave Taurus customer service out of the loop.

All mfg's of firearms have lemons or bad designs from time to time,but not all of their products are bad. Will I buy another Taurus,Yes.I like most of their guns.

I own a Taurus and have yet to have an issue. Met some others with Taurus revolvers and they have never had an issue either.

Haven't done much reading lately eh? No offense, but everywhere you look on the web (gun forums) there is always a mention of faulty Taurus pistols and revolvers. That feedback is usually paired up with negative customer service experience.

If you want quality. . . pat for it! ! !

I had a pt24/7 9mm with no problems.
Had a pt111 9mm mil pro and no problems.

Google it and you'll find massive amounts of threads of people with quality issues.

my wife bought a taurus 38 all steel. she picked it up 3 months ago, i tried to talk her out of it at the time but when my wife offered the dealer 225.00 out he door and he said ok. i said why not for that price nib. so far only about 200 rounds through it and no problems, but my wife still carries her keltec 380 everyday the taurus has become her nightstand gun. i also have had shooting buddies have trouble with taurus but mostly the semi-autos. the 38 is the only taurus we own if that tells you anything and we own several guns.

I have had a few Taurus guns and all have been perfectly reliable with no issues.

Until now. I did buy a PT101 and reliability is perfect with no issues until one day at the range the magazine fell out. I went to put it back in and discovered the magazine release had fallen out. Looked like faulty threads between the two halves.

Anyways, it should be getting back from Taurus soon and Im sure it will be fine after that...keeping my fingers crossed.
