Just a quick report after my first time out with it. 1) Definitely needs new sights or painted front sights. 2) Winchester .22 ammo is disgustingly dirty. I'm almost certain I have cancer after breathing enough of that powder in. 3) Double action pull isn't too bad for stock but could use some lightening up. Overall, I enjoyed shooting it. Pretty fun for cheap.

I painted the front post of my Gp100 a bright green and it makes a world of differance. You can use hobby paint with a small brush or you could use nail polish. And ive had good results from federal bulk packs for being clean shooting, but thats been out of rifles and dont know if it would be the same for a revolver. And just so you know you make me mad. I want a .22 revolver but mines gonna have to wait for a few months. Just letting you know im mad that i dont have mine yet.

I'm going to paint the sight when I get around to it. The Federal bulk hollows I shot yesterday were much cleaner, although the revolver was still very dirty at the end of the day. Cleaning a 10 shot cylinder is not fun.

In a few months I bet you'll see the Ruger SP101 stock up again or you could find a used 617 for around the same price.

And the stainless finish just shows every bit of dirt you collect.

Now my 17 has the black parkerized finish. I can shoot that till its coated and never know the difference.

Don't believe everything bad about Taurus that you hear. I have a sweet ss model 94 lr 9 shot that is about the most accurate 22 I've ever seen. 4" barrel. Only gave $300 for it a my lgs. I've got 2 other Taurus's a 9 and a 380 had no problems with either.
Had a smith&wesson 380 bodyguard that I had nothing but troubles with it fte,ftf's and dropping the mag. It was a recent serial number so passed the "new model" glitch stage.
Anyway, my point is don't believe all the hates out there...I think half the problems people have with firearms are operator error in maintains,using, and cleaning. That and you are bound to get a lemon every once in awhile that just misses the quality control...no matter what manufacturer.
Sweet looking revolver btw!

I completely agree with your statements there. I kind of wanted my first revolver to be a smith, only reason I ended up getting it. Thanks

IMHO, you will likely be happiest with at least a 4" barrel and not longer than a 6" barrel. Any shorter and the sight radius will limit you to short shots, and any longer becomes cumbersome to manipulate.

Later, you can add a shorter or longer barrel revolver to fit specific voids in your shooting needs not met by the 4-6" barrels.

Wife got me this heritage rough rider 22lr & 22 mag combo, birdshead grips and fixed sights, 4 3/4" barrell, it was 169$ out the door, it is accurate enough that I can hit soda cans from 25-30 yds, and I squirrel hunt with it for an extra challenge and have taken squirrels with it, I have fired all kinds of rounds thru it and we live in the country so I carry it everywhere with bird shot shells in it for snake patrol, I am very pleased with this revolver, it is a reasonable price gun but its anything but cheap.
