hi guys! I have been cruising the forums here, and a lot of people really don't like Taurus guns. I own 2 and I love them both. My .357 snubbie is the most reliable gun I've ever owned, and my M66 .357 is super accurate and consistent. My question is: Why? I mean specifically why. What happened to you with Taurus that turned you off? Please understand, this is a fact-finding mission for me. I like Taurus, but if there is some huge elephant in the room I don't know about, I want to know. I am looking for specific experiences in this thread, I want to compile a list and cross reference with other manufacturers. I am a bit of nerd (engineer by trade) and hard data is what I live for. Let's get a quantifiable list of incidents compiled here, so noobs and others can make accurate judgments! I'll go first: Out of the box my M66 would not index with rounds in the cylinder. The tolerances between the cylinder and frame were too tight. Sent it back to Taurus and they told me that there was too much bluing on the frame causing the problem. They replaced the cylinder and the gun now indexes fine and shoots VERY consistent groups. I have about 500 rounds through it, and it is my daily carry piece. My 605 has been a trooper and a workhorse. No complaints.
