I have lots of Ruger revolvers, both SA & DA, but have a hankering for a new 357 SA. I would like a case colored blued one. I saw a new Taurus ($419) and a Beretta ($600) and must say I was impressed with the finish and they felt like good quality guns while fondling them in the store.
I don't think Taurus offered their single action revolver very long. A couple years around mid-decade, is my recollection. I believe it was called the "Gaucho".
