I seen and heard enough from people working at the range and reading first and second hand expedience's on the net. I'm sure some my have been BS, but not enough to change may mind about Taurus.
TBS, my first revolve was a Taurus, a model 608 large frame 8 shot .357 5" barrel.
It performs very impressively, I'd put around 3000 mostly hot factory .357 rounds with some .38s in the mix. Never ever a flaw. I had a lot of people shoot it, all, all were rather impressed, I sold it to my brothers with faith
All TBS, I never heard of a 608 Taurus problem yet, but that's not a high selling gun. Maybe that's good, there not trying to pump out 10,000 of them a day maybe like a 605 or 85.
