My one-and-only Taurus M85 snub, S.S. has been perfect. It had a much better double-action trigger pull than my Smith & Wesson's.
One of the problems with taking reports of malfunctioning Tauruses from the INTERNET at face value, is that many such reports do not specify what the problem was or how serious it was. Generally, if I have a problem with a gun, I fix it myself and do not post about it. If there are many such as I, it skews the data.
