Default Taurus .357mag Tracker Opinions

Hey guy's.

As a newbie to the site, I'd like to say, Great site and I'm looking forward to spending a bit a time here with you.

I own three semi-auto Taurus hand guns and I can't complain at all however, I have known of others whom has not been as lucky. I've been looking at buying a Taurus Tracker, 357mag. I've read some bad things about their barrels completely leaving the frame during firing due to fractures in the metal where barrel joins the frame.

I'd like to here from any of you with expierce with this gun or on Taurus revolvers in general.

Thanks in advance for your replys...!
Dave

Welcome to the forum. We have an "Introductions" area where we ask people to say "hello".

Taurus has a lifetime warranty. Don't worry about anything breaking until it does.
I've had good luck with the Taurus revolvers, "iffy" luck with polymer framed.

My closest friend has a Tracker .357 with I think an 8" bbl. He shoots some handloads that were intended for use in a rifle. I don't know what they are loaded with, but he gave me a box for my S&W and after the first 2 rounds I gave the rest of the box back. It hurt to shoot that stuff, and I had oil splatter out of my side plate. But his Tracker handles it just fine.

dave88, why don't you jump over to the Introductions section and tell us a little about yourself?

dave88, we're glad to have you here. Stop by the introduction area and let everyone know you're here.

I have not had good luck with Taurus so I steer clear of them. I know a number of people here have and love them but personally, I would pick up a full lug Ruger GP100 for about the same money and never look back.

What price are the GP100s going for in your area?
