Newest addition to collection - need to learn more
 
1 Attachment(s)
This is my personal first revolver. My grandfather owned several that I got to shoot, but I was much younger, and really don't remember much other than shooting them.

.44mag Taurus Tracker

I want to learn much more about it ... maintenance, care, fine tuning, etc.

At first glance, I expected the cylinder to be smoother...this one spins, but not without effort...is there a way to smooth things out to make it shoot as fine as possible?


Any information for a first time revolver owner is most appreciated!

I have the .44 mag Tracker with 4" barrel, and I love the grip, the weight, the fit and finish, the trigger, and the way it shoots.

I have done nothing to mine and it shoots great,
Just keep it cleanand oil on the cylinder shaft, and shoot it .

Well...i've been sitting here cleaning it, and I just saw this happen...the finish started peeling while I was wiping it with my rag......

This is a brand new firearm....please tell me this will be covered by the warranty.

Hmmmm, looks a lot like the 357 Tracker, an excellent fire arm, accurate and a great trigger.

Congrats on your revolver. I love wheel guns, possibly more than any other type of gun.

Not sure what to tell you about your finish flaking away issue. I know Taurus has a very good warranty, so if I were you I'd call them and ask. I think I recall finishes aren't covered though...

Actually, just found it. It says it doesn't cover cosmetic defects after one year. You should be good.

Good luck!

LMAO! Funny enough the choice came down to a ruger and Taurus. I decided to sleep on it, came back the next day and the Ruger was gone.

I'm still happy w/ the Taurus though =)

As long as they fix my flaking finish :mad::mad::mad::mad:

yes have to admit im rather pissed thay i have barely owned my firearm for 24 hours when i find out i have to send it in for warranty work

taurus customer service was great up to the point they actually tried convincing me this is going to happen after so long anyways amd did i really want to go through all this because of a small mark

yes. i do. if you go buy a new car, are you willing to pay full sticker if you see there are key marks already on it? its bound to happen anyways!

im shipping it in ... god knows how long it will be before i ever get it back

Gratz PPC, not a big Taurus fan myself but their wheelguns do have a cult like following so there's something to be said for that...

The finish thing would bother me too, if it's gonna get scuffed up, you want to be the one doing the scuffin'! :p
