A gun can work sometimes with a surprisingly “fugly” star but...it’s a sign it’s been shot at a high rate of fire a lot, or the metallurgy was crap, or it was badly machined (the last two issues infamous to Taurus, sad to say).
Every Taurus star I've ever seen has looked that way. I suspect it's less of a problem with the 5 shot snubs with a relatively coarse (5 point swastika) star, than with the higher round count cylinders.

No specific comments on Charter Arms? I seem to recall you commenting sometime in the past about frame problems with some of the .44 Special Bulldogs.
