Hi so this is my first post on here and I was just wondering if I could get some opinions. I am being offered a taurus 627 4" for a Ruger LC9 and I would like some opinions on this deal. The taurus would not be filling any particular role it would just be something different, and i know a taurus is not a smith or ruger so please just dot even go there, I know both of those guns are far better quality but all I am asking about are the ones in the title. Thanks

About an even trade. I don't have experience with that particular Taurus but do have two of their revolvers and they are good solid guns. Check the cylinder lockup and if you can shoot it do so. I had a LC9 and didn't care for it. Didn't fill my hand and could never shoot it right.
Since you say the Taurus will fill no role other than something different, will you be looking to replace the LC9 with another or something else after the deal os made? If you're going to be replacing it then just keep what you have and buy a revolver outright later.
No I will not have to replace the Ruger. I carry a sig now so it would simply be something new to shoot. I like the Ruger and can shoot it very accurately and it is a good ccw but I don't carry it so I would like to have something new to shoot.
Some Ruger's will hold value (Redhawk/Blackhawk), others don't...the LC9 is one that probably won't stand the test of time, given its issues.
What issues? You say?? Read the Ruger repair forums for that answer
Yes!! I read so many bad reviews on the lc9 I got rid of mine!! I would trade it for any decent revolver!! Taurus is gaining traction in the gun world!! But they are keepers not traders for the most part!!
