I currently have 3 Taurus firearms,a Raging Bull 44 Magnum that I've had for many years.It has never had any problems,and is shot often.
A Tracker 22WMR,it had some cylinder timing problems when fired rapidly,but I had that problem fixed by my local gunsmith.To me it wasn't that big a deal,it was a small issue,and I figured I could get it fixed faster locally than sending it back to Taurus.It was fixed in less than a week,and cost a whopping $25.I would've spent more on shipping it to Taurus.
And I also have a Model 63 22lr semi-auto rifle.It's picky about ammo,but has always been a good rifle,and fun to shoot.
I had a PT-92 9mm pistol that I purchased back in the 1980's,it was the best 9mm semi-auto pistol that I've ever owned.Never a problem with it.
The only Taurus product that gave me headaches was a 45acp 24/7 OSS.It had to have the wrong sights put on it when it was produced.It shot 6" low at 25ft,no matter what ammo you fed it.I sent it back to Taurus 3 times,and everytime they said it was fine/no problems found.I got rid of it,and will never buy another.

But other than the 24/7 OSS,I've been very happy with Taurus products.I will say,their CS sucks,but after all they are out of Miami,Fl.

If Taurus has figured out how to keep metal shavings out of the lubricants the gun should shoot just fine.

To me, it's take your chances. You might get a great one and love it...but you just as easily might not. I'd rather spend a little bit more and increase my odds.
Had the same problem with Taurus Judge 6.5" barrel. Purchased new at BPS on sale. A month 'til I could fire it, but dry fired it with no shells in chamber several times - worked perfectly. However, when live rounds
( Long Colt & 410 ga ) ammo were in place , it would bind on two or three successive cylinders. Also, it shot to the right by about 4-6" at 30'. Assuming they would replace my new gun, I sent it back via BPS. To Taurus for evaluation. Taurus sent my new gun back to me after repairing it.
So , I paid a new price for a repaired gun and ,in addition , waited weeks to enjoy it. Soooo disappointed in you Taurus.

I also have a Taurus Judge in 6 1/2" barrel. For me, it shoots just fine, I can hit the 10" target 48 out of 50 times free hand, never had a "miss" in the range's ammo. Never had to send it out for repairs and the sights are good enough for me

I doubt that I will ever own anything made by Taurus. My personal preference.

Or Your gain. Buy a hi point, comes with the same warranty and cost alot less. I don't own a hi point, but I do own a Taurus which I'm trying to sell so I can buy a more reliable firearm.

You already found a more reliable handgun, the Hi point.

Yea, but I'll be putting the money I get towards a Glock. I like how they feel, hi points are to heavy for me.
