Mushy in SA or DA?
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.

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.

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 🔬🔎.
