The hollow Taurus Saf-T-Hammer is a known issue I was unaware of until an old member here mentioned it to me. I did some reading and decided to dump that as well. Nothing more than a nanny-state feel good piece that isn't needed on a weapon with three mechanical safeties on it.

Other than that, a good trigger job and I think the weapon is good to go. If you wanted to get serious you might consider an enhanced recoil spring and some high quality magazines like Tripps'.

I think the Taurus is an excellent value as it is and with a couple of mods makes for a hell of a nice pistol.
