    Should I Buy a New Taurus Now

    I own one Taurus .22lr revolver that I like a problems. I also own a S&W for CCCW. I am looking for a 4" .357 Revolver and really like the 327 Tracker or the 66.
    I imagine both are fine for the money. I like their feel and weight.

    However, problems can occur with ANY brand and I am wondering if the issues with the very large recall (1 million firearms) and the legal fees will cause
    any issues in the future should I need a warranty repair. I read many many stories of very long lead times on repair.
    Is it pretty certain that Taurus will survive financially, and if so, what happens when they start fixing the 1 million guns? Wouldn't that jam up the
    works for all other warranty repairs?

    I am looking for rational and knowledgeable discussion that will guide me....I have a little time as my LGS is backordered on the two guns I want and
    I need to hold one to make the final decision. So likely won't order online.

    Thanks in advance.

    The problems they've had are with the slide guns. Revolvers are fine and they have a lifetime warranty.

    The revolvers are old established tech. I wouldn't have any problems with their purchase. Just inspect whatever you buy, before you take delivery. That's good advice for any firearm brand. As far as a recall goes, I'm sure that a special recall division would be set up that would be different from general warranty work. That only makes sense, especially when dealing with a large number of similar models.

    Of course, I could be wrong.

    I would have no issues buying a new or used Taurus Model 66 if I was in the market.

    Sorry I am not much help on the 327 Tracker.

    I bought a 617 last fall and have carried it a lot in the winter months. No issues. I also have a 608 that has had no issues. I did a lot of looking prior to both purchases and felt that Taurus offered a lot of bang for the buck. I wouldn't worry about purchasing a revolver.
