My 22 year old Taurus model 66 .357 magnum 6" revolver still shoots as good as the day I bought it. That is also it shoots darned accurate. And this is after years of many many warp speed reloads through it. The only thing that has gone wrong with this gun is in year 19, the crane screw came loose, some Lok-tite fixed that. And in year 20 a spring developed a kink in it. It cost me more to ship the part than the spring cost. It ws my most accurate weapon until I spent a substantial amount more on a Dan Wesson Razorbackk 10mm semi, and a Sig P229 with both the .40 S&W and 357 Sig barrels. I think I paid $225 for the Taurus brand new. It is still so accurate I am going to get it reblued instead of retiring it.

I think taurus has had some good stuff and have owned a coupl of taurus guns. They have also had some they had to work the bugs out of, maybe 2-3 versions before they were trustworthy. I think some dislike taurus for GP, but some of those that dislike them do so on past experience.

This is not meant as a taurus bash, just an observation. I do think they have done a lot toward providing an affordable handgun and am glad they are part of the scene.

Taurus model 66 .357 magnum 6" revolver

I had one of those last year. I traded an SAR-1 for it,but never shot it. I ended up selling it. :( Like yours,it was 20+ years old but it looked brand new. The guy I got it from said he put 100 rounds through it and it sat under the socks in a drawer ever since.



I didn't really want to sell,but I downsized a lot of my gun collection last year.

Heh...now I want another one.
