    Mushy Mdl. 66

    The only problem I think I have ever had with a Taurus was about 25 or so years ago on a Mdl. 66 and it had for lack of a better word a mushy trigger. I never tried to do anything about it so I guess I have no place to complain. LOL.

    Mushy in SA or DA?

    Kinda hard to troubleshoot a model 66 that you probably don't even have anymore....I think they were only 6 round guns back then too. Lots have changed since then. Also, keep in mind that if a trigger is mushy, you might want to pop the side plate off and see if another owner might have been tinkering with the trigger assembly. More shadetree gunsmiths have trashed a good gun than anything else.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    It was a new gun (6 shot), I shot about 24 rounds through it and put it in the safe and never thought another thing about it until about 10 years later when I moved from Hawaii. I then sold about 8 guns (the Mdl 66 among them). About every 10 years or so I'll sell off most of my least desirable guns to make room for more.

    I have one of those six-shot M-66's, and it had ISSUES! But a few trips back to Taurus, and after a certain amount of perseverance on my part, it is now about my favorite shooting guns.

    Might have been one that slipped by the QC bench 🙈. Not a hint of "mushiness" in my 2017 M-66 (7 shot). I'm on the lookout for an older M-66 (actual blued finish, 6-shot cylinder) but you can be sure that any I may come across will be scrutinized very closely 🔬🔎.
