I have a Taurus 85T in 38spl, a 605 in 357 Mag and a 76 in 32 HR Mag. All of which have functioned flawlessly to date. I have a number of Smiths and Rugers which have done so as well. So I would estimate that it is the luck of the draw. I just don't think that the Taurus are "more likely" to have problems than any of the others. Just my opinion.
