old fart,

I would not trade it either. The spots on the metal are simply where the light rust penetrated the bluing and is not a part of the actual metal itself. I had a S&W do that one time. Looked like little bare or shiny spots on the gun! I did send it back to Smith and they did a fantastic job. This occurred one night when I was on duty on a rainy night and forgot to take the revolver out of the holster when I go home that night! I would keep it oiled if I were you. If you do not want to spend the money for blueing you could always have it parkerized. It is very inexpensive to do. The gun would be a dull finish but the metal would be completely covered and protected. Only a thought!

Usually, in a trade, I have always come up short from what I had before.

Keep it and buy a Rossi/Taurus to increase the fun factor at the range.

I have a bunch of Ruger revolvers. I would not trade any one of them for 5 Taurus guns.

Not on a dare. A Ruger for a Taurus is crazy.

I would strongly advise AGAINST it. The service six is better than any taurus ever has or will be. Maybe trade for a decent S&W, but only if it was EXACTLY what one wanted.

Old Fart you have already pointed out the issue with braztech revolvers. They have a poor lock up. Poor lock up will eventually lead to safety issues. It is a shame Braztech cannot work out their lock up issues because they make some very accurate revolvers. My father and uncle both have nice S&W revolvers. I tanned their butt with a Rossi snub nose 38spl. The accuracy is no good if it is just a matter of time before you will have lead chunks coming out of the cylinder gap.
