    Taurus Model 607. Double Action Problem?

    I have a bid on a New-in-Box Taurus Model 607 revolver- stainless.

    My problem is, after doing some research.

    According to one source: the 607 has a double-action quirk.

    Sometimes the action is smooth, and sometimes the action jerks.

    According to the review.

    I wanted to know, if that was true.

    And if so, what I could do, when I get it.

    Thanks.

    Check this thread about short stroking. http://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/in...?topic=20370.0

    I'm betting the 607 will be just fine and up to normal standards.

    The short stoke problem doesn't really sound like a jerk. Is that what was described to you, John?

    Any double action, you need to allow the trigger to do a full reset. It does not reset like an SA semi auto, and each shot requires a full trigger stroke.

    Re: Taurus Model 607. Double Action Problem?

    Here's the review, I read.

    High-Cap Revolvers: Are They Competitive Pin Guns?

    http://www.gun-tests.com/performance/aug96highcap.html

    "The double-action pull was an acceptable 12 1/2 pounds, but its stroke was gritty and rough, ending in an inconsistent release. One chamber had no perceptible lock-up before the hammer fell and others had a varying degree from moderate to hard. It was difficult to compensate for this variability in our speed-plate testing. Our shooters frequently had high misses with the one chamber that had no perceptible lock-up stage prior to firing. As it would rotate into position, there was no predictable pause prior to the hammer falling and the gun would fire early, while the front sight was still above the target at 12 o’clock. This was most annoying. The outcome would be that the extra-shot advantage would frequently be wasted by missing!"

    But like you said, maybe it has to do, with not letting the trigger reset.

    Hmm... Thanks for that.

    Re: Taurus Model 607. Double Action Problem?

    Here's more from the review.

    From- http://www.gun-tests.com/performance/aug96highcap.html

    "The trigger itself was wide, and though popular with conventional target shooters who fire single action, its width prevented the trigger finger from rolling around its face during the double-action stroke. This caused our shooter to slow the trigger stroke down because he had to compensate laterally to keep the front sight on target."

    "While it did beat the S&W by 0.4 seconds in the speed-plates test due to its weight and compensated barrel, its trigger resulted in a slower first shot and an occasional high miss, which we think diminishes its seven-shot capacity."

    "Overall, we believe the Taurus 607 would benefit from a narrower trigger and an action-smoothing tune up before taking on the pins at Second Chance."

    But I like what you said about short-stroking, and thanks for the link.

    The terms they used were: "inconsistant release" and needing "an action smoothing tune-up."

    Ok, to me that means they think that the fluff and buff of the action in the trigger and hammer area would improve the function. This has been found by many people with various revolvers, and all brands.

    Some times when the side plate is taken off there is grit, and shipping gunk in the action, or even edges that need to be smoothed out.

    Re: Taurus Model 607. Double Action Problem?

    I haven't done much work on revolvers.

    What would that need?

    Fluff and Buff.

    How involved a process, is it?

    Done at home, or by gunsmith?

    If you feel confident enough. Follow the instructions here, http://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/in...?topic=22661.0. Clean out any grit and grunge! Check the surfaces that meet each other, for burrs, or rough spots. If you find any buff the burrs or rough spots off (do not grind on them,) use of a dremel with soft polish tip, and some jewelers rouge to do so. Then reassemble, lubing the bearing points lightly.
