I have owned 7 Taurus handguns, 5 bought new and two were used before I bought them. Two of the new ones had problems out of the box. The used ones ran well.
One new revolver had problems with the trigger not returning. The bought new rimfire revolver requires two men and a small boy to sucessfully fire double action - alot more effort than I think reasonable even to ignite rimfire cartridges. Cylinder on the rimfire binds often. PT22 worked well for several hundred rounds but then broke a plastic buffer; TAurus replaced the buffer for free.
So, I am wary of buying any more Taurus firearms.
