I am brand new here. If I say I like Taurus revolvers will I get flogged here?
I think you will be just fine. Though I can’t guarantee it, I haven’t seen any issues with getting a different gun than is recommended.
You might be flogging yourself. They have a reputation for hit or miss.
I have a few Taurus Revolver's,the only issue that I've ever had was a cylinder timing issue on my Tracker 22lr. Had a local gun smith fix it,and never had any other issues with it.
I've always loved 44 Magnum's,and have owned almost every brand and model of them over the years. The only one that I've kept is my Raging Bull,it's the best shooting 44 that I've ever owned.
Taurus makes pretty good revolver's,after all,they are pretty much all S&W designs.
Now,Their semi-auto handgun's are a different story IMO. They are complete JUNK!
Flogged? No, there are others here who like their Taurus handguns, but don’t expect a Taurus fan club either. Welcome to the forum!
My only dip in the Taurus pool is a TX22. Nice little peashooter, it is.
Welcome to the FTF covey.
p.s. no such thing as a bad 41 magnum.
You like what you like Rancid..... welcome!
Well, so far, mine have all been hits. My favorite revolver is my Taurus Tracker .41 magnum, which is flawless, a joy to shoot and very accurate. I like it more than my old S&W model 19. Good for 2-legged varmints with .44 Special ammo and bears with stout hard-cast ammo and just about anything in-between. Love my .41 mag Tracker! It carries very well in my holster, too.
Only problem I've had with Taurus was the cost of replacing the rear sight blade on my .22 revolver which is about the size of a toenail clipping. Had to buy the entire rear sight - nearly $40 with S/H. The 9-shot stainless pistol is one of my favorites. Very accurate and the smaller Pachmyer-styled grips perfect. My Taurus .22 mouse gun was also a good buy but it was stolen out of my truck.
I am a retired gunsmith and dealer, and I have owned about everything there is, and I like Taurus. Excellent value, and if you do have an issue their customer service was good. I have never had an issue but a couple of customers did (minor) under warranty. Their Model 92 was the deal of the last century if you like 9mm. I have personally owned several. My carry gun is a 3" 605 in .357, and my outdoors carry gun is a 431 4" in .44Spl. Both have been 100%. I should mention that both have Wolff Springs in them, but then ALL of my revolvers do. If you do go with a Wolff springs kit you need to shoot enough to ensure you get 100% ignition with the spring you select.
do you mean 44 magnum and 44 special?
because you aren't going to fit 44 special into a 41 magnum!!
No. I mean .41 magnum just like the gun in the pic says on the barrel and .41 Special. Yes, there is now .41 Special ammo.
I like my Taurus tracker .357. But i like my Ruger GP100 357 better. Build quality is better.
The Taurus Tracker is $500.00, the Ruger GP100 is $700.00.
You brought a WHAT aboard my vessel!?
I'm not a fan. Years ago when I looked at them I found they had a total failure rate of about 31% out of the box. Enough to keep me away.
I'm sure they've improved but I still have no love for them.
That's just me, there are lots of folks that swear by them. To each his own.
Well, buy one at a gun store where they are out of the box.
Not my first or even second choice. Or third. But to each his own.
WOW... thanks for educating me... When did that come out?
Have you chronographed any of the loads? If so, what are your results?
No, I have not chronograhed any of them. I rely on professional reviews, which are good enough for me. I don't know when the .41 Special became commercially available but it has been a wildcat for years. I have been a big fan of the .41 magnum since the latter 70's.
41 mag & special has been out since the 60’s
