I at one time was the owner of 10 taurus firearms, the reason-- because of a 1987 model 99 that I have owned since it was new.
the ones after that were not near as well produced ( 5 of the ten were returned to the mothership) a couple twice.
at the time of my original 99 purchase customer service, parts and I believe quality of the weapon systems was in line with many other companies, fast forward and In my case taurus had very likely the worst customer service in the firearms business and well as part availability.
soo I observe for a long time before I buy again. just my experience and 2 cents on the matter, again going back to 1987 and 10 weapons from the company.
