Have Tauri revolvers improved in quality? I've been looking at their revolvers and they seem like nice guns. I'm just a little leary because I had purchased a Tuarus once before (10+ years ago) thinking it was a good deal and was sadly disappointed.

Perhaps in this case, the lack of response says volumes!

Okay, I'll bite. Have two - a SS 608 and a 94 (.22LR). Bought the 608 first. Great gun! Excellent fit and finish, good accuracy, nice smooth trigger. Basically I have no complaint.

Based on this purchase, decided to get the 94 for my wife as a plinking gun. Big mistake! Fit and finish is so-so but livable, but the trigger is just plain lousy. DA is very gritty, and feels like a "forever" pull weight. Single action is obviolusly lighter, but still has excessive creep. Hammer spur is too short and sharply angled for my wife to use it well for cocking the gun. I built it up with some tape, but the action is still so stiff that she still wound up with a blister trying to cock it. Finally just stopped using this gun altogether.

So, a mixed bag. Would have defintely recommended a Taurus based on my first experience, but this little .22 sure soured me. I know, I can send it back to Taurus to look at and probably will some day, but can't believe it made it out of the factory with as bad an action as it has.

I have a Tracker 41Mag Titanium. I am very pleased. It has a nice trigger and nice fit and finish.

How many rounds have you put through that 41 mag tracker? How long have you had it?

I bought a Taurus 94B2UL (.22 "Ultralight" snubby) at the end of last year.

Overall, I like it. The quality seems quite reasonable for the price (about $250) and I haven't found any serious defects yet.

The barrel/cylinder gap is tight enough to cause binding after about 50 rounds, but since I don't mind pausing to wipe the fouling away, that's OK. I can't envision a do-or-die scenario in which I'd be firing more than a single cylinder from this Taurus and it isn't really a defensive weapon for me anyway.

I next revolver I buy will probably be a Taurus too. If they'd put 3" unported barrels on some of their snubbies I might buy two Taurus revolvers.

An update:

I shot my 94UL again today and discovered that either I was having a really bad day or this little .22 has some accuracy problems. My attempts at deliberate, single action shooting didn't result in much better groups than my previous quick-and-dirty blasting sessions.

Also, the trigger action is rougher than I remembered.

Lester,

I've had it about 8 months and have 250 rounds through it. The trigger was a little rough and heavy at the beginning but after about 50 rounds it smoothed up very nicely. At 28 ozs. it could be a real handful but the ribber grip and porting really tames it. I shot a 357 snubbie that felt alot worse.

Was told today to expect a Taurus in 45 acp sometime this year. Depending on how the trigger feels when they do arrive, this might be my next gun. :smile:

That ought to be interesting. 45 long colt might even be better in the Tracker series. What format and frame size are they planning for the ACP. I assume you are referring to a revolver as they already have a semi in 45 ACP.
