Sweet -- need pictures. It's probably not worth a lot of money but that's irrelevant. If it works well then it has a lot of value as a side arm.
To some people invisible guns are worth more. To others, they are worth nothing.
"It is wonderful, in the event of a street fight, how few bullets seem to hit the men they are aimed at." Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail, Theodore Roosevelt, 1888
As for value, used Taurus handguns are not sought out (and sometimes shunned) in the gun community, so they don't bring much money. That makes them affordable to us Taurus fans.

i have the 4" version of yours. i looked it up once a few years ago and it was in the $250.00 range for worth..
most accurate pistol i own btw
thanks Qwiks Draw ... not new been here years, new name after the big change up a couple years ago, couldn't keep my name from then... just inactive.
Glad to have you with us. Some of the changes did cause hiccups for some members. Got those taken care of now.
What some of us learned, even way back when, was that the 158gr. projectiles in .357 magnum and .38 Special hit to or at the point of aim at about 25 yards. The model 66, one old and one new, are accurate and durable revolvers.
I have a 6" satin 66 I bought in 88 or so just after turning 21, $167 brand new. Had it out just a few weeks ago, added a bsquare scope mount and used it deer hunting when handguns became legal here, I think I got a total of 6 does, 2 in one day until I switched to a contender in 357 max. Cylinders gaps a little loose, it's had many 1,000 of reloads thru it.
Like you, I am having trouble finding out details about my Taurus. However mine is a M669 but, like yours it's .357, 6" barrel and blued. I have to say I like it a lot. It's in very good condition, mechanically tight where it should be tight, the bluing is in great condition and, when I do my bit, it shoots very well. Having looked at many hundreds of photos (Google is your friend..) I can see that mine may have had a little factory 'tweaking'. Notice the long flat hammer and the trigger of a similar colour.. it certainly doesn't strike me as an aftermarket / gunsmith addition. Anyway, here's my photos

Happiness is like peeing your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you can feel the warmth.
