I have had 2 Taurus will never own another. The first pt111 millennium the takedown pin would randomly come out while shooting. The other one is a pt22 and the grips keep breaking due to them being to brittle and when that happens ftf. I have seen revolvers with the front sight off center. Customers service was good.

I have a Taurus PT 145 .45 acp and a Taurus M-44 44 Mag. No problems with either. That said they are real hit & miss.

I have owned two Tauri: a PT22 and a 6" barreled .357 magnum revolver the model number for which I don't remember. Neither was a quality firearm. I sold them both and will not voluntarily purchase another.

That said, if Taurus makes a gun that meets your expectations, then I'm very happy for you. Go forth and burn some powder.

Mine's working ok now, except for a tiny drag on one cylinder. Fired a 2" pattern at 20' free hand to test it. However, a better quality control could have prevented a customer from receiving a faulty firearm though. I will point out that the Taurus Judge,6.5" revolver is a stunningly beautiful gun which is well balanced and comfortable to grip. I have a Lightweight Taurus Judge 3.5" barrel with magnesium frame(?) which is suitable for concealed carry and is not a weighty burden. The boom of the 410 round when fired from these guns is a joy to experience.

Default My thoughts on Taurus

Well i just bought a taurus tracker 6.5 in. barrel and i love it. Accurate right out of the box to about 25 yards cant complain. Good looks nice feel stainless looks awsome. No complaints here, only thing i should have went 9 shot instead of 7 but what the heak i couldnt wait, im happy. And i love the double action.

I have an old Taurus (no lock). It is a 6" 669. Every other revolver I have is s&w so I have been thinking about making a trade to keep it all in the family but I can't bring myself to get rid of the Taurus. I have never shot such a smooth da trigger including the fancy trigger on the lcr. The more I think about it this, This one might still be in the safe when my kids go to sell all of my stuff whenever I die.

Many years ago a Taurus was considered a piece of junk. And while I see them as being more popular today, and don't hear as much about them being substandard, I consider a firearm a precision tool (yes, even Glocks). So if I buy a gun, I buy only top grade stuff: my 1911s are Colt (I know what you are thinking Kimber fans ), BUG snubbies are S&W, carry is a G30sf.
I don't screw around with 2nd line stuff, no matter how cute it is. And while I know some have a budget, for the extra $100 or so, you get the real deal, so wait one more payday and go for the best.

I know that they make a couple of guns that I want. However, their checkered reputation has me staying away.

+1. I actually think one of the 992s would be a great revolver...assuming there were no unpleasant surprises left for you by the QC folks at Taurus.

I do own one Taurus (85UL). It works. It's not a particularly nice revolver, but it will go bang when needed. I had to pull it apart when I got it home (brand new gun) and clean all of the bead blast media out of it.
That said, I believe I would have been happier with something else. Knowing what I know now I'd rather spend the extra money for something better, or find a used S&W for similar money. Taurus has some really great designs that are let down by poor quality control.
