I currently own two, an M607 and an M608, and previously owned two others, an M94 and an M66. The M607 and M608 are large frame .357 Magnums similar to S&W N-frames. The M607 is a 7-shot and was in production for a couple of years in the mid 90's. The 8-shot M608 replaced it in '97 or '98. I sold the M94 .22LR to a friend and traded the M66 .357 for the M607. I like Taurus revolvers, but not their semi-autos. Then again, I am not a fan of any semi-autos.
