I haven' had any issues out of my taurus model 66 357 mag, it was my dads he got it when they first started making them. It has at least 3000 rounds through it, the only thing I can say is make sure that no home gun smith got a hold of it. I don't know all that much about where your buying it from I don't know if it's new or used or anything like that just make sure everything works ok.

Good luck let us know how she shoot!

Thanks guys, that makes me feel better, I haven't got it yet, I purchased it from Davidson's Gallery of Guns online, and the gun is brand new. I have bought two other firearms through them and they are top notch. When you go to Ruger or Taurus.com and press purchase gun, it takes you to the Gallery of Guns website!!!

Oh I'm sorry I misunderstood, I've only dealt with one 357 mag from Taurus and it's a great firearm and those grips they use are outstanding, feels real good.

I will consider that for a future smaller gun, thanks

I've had, and have heard of poor quality issues with the Taurus semi-autos, really hit or miss but their wheelguns are good quality pieces. You made a solid choice...

Thanks

Don't overlook the value of a good used S&W or Colt revolver...1970s - 80s era S&W revolvers will top most being made today. just my .02
