  1. Taurus Revolvers
    Within the last week I purchased a 605 Poly in 357. I’m following my normal break in procedures for a new weapon prior to range time. I’m having difficulty releasing the cylinder. When I depress and push forward on the release button and push on the cylinder I have to exert a great deal of force...
  2. Taurus Revolvers
    Just purchased a brand new Taurus 605 357 Mag revolver, have not shot it yet. Love the look, weight, and feel. The trigger is perfect: smooth as silk with a perfect stack and clean break in double action, glass-clean break in single action. It seems like the perfect revolver for practice and...
  3. Rossi Revolvers
    I have a stainless Rossi 972 in .375 that I would like to use theatrically, i.e. for photoshoots, professional costuming, parties, contests, etc. The fact that it is a legitimate firearm hasn't been so much of a problem up to this point, as I have plugged the cylinders with expanding anchors to...

    I've had this revolver for a while, took it out back to try it out recently, fired 5 rounds through it, reloaded the cylinder, closed it, now it is stuck closed. I called Taurus and they said send it to them. I told the guy I couldn't because I can't *unload* it. Besides being stuck shut, it...
  5. Taurus Revolvers
    So I got my Tracker Model 44 back from Miami (I was worried about cylinder play and timing which was fixed satisfactorily) but I noticed this pit on the cylinder face today, and it hasn't been fired since I got it back. I recognize this gun is loaded, but it's not pointed at me and it's in a...
  6. Taurus Revolvers
    Hello all, I have a Tracker .44 mag which I have posted before about a potential cylinder play issue when in full lock up. It was basically determined everything was ok, and I was overreacting. I was ogling over it again today and just checking things out and I decided to see how things look...

    Any one know what the spec's are supposed to be on the .22 992 cylinders? I have a feeling my cylinder may be undersized. I'm also curios how far a round should go in to the forcing cone when inserted by hand.
  8. Smithing
    I was curious, I was testing my revolver the other day by pulling the hammer back getting it in full lock up and seeing if there was any wiggle in the cylinder. One one of the stops there did seem to be more cylinder play than on the other 4. I may be overreacting, especially since I can feel a...
  9. Taurus Revolvers
    I would like to find a new titanium spare cylinder and new rubber ribbed grips. Maybe a SS barrel liner. Maybe other parts. Can I find new spare parts for my gun, if so where?
  10. Rossi Revolvers
    I purchased a Rossi 357, and have shot it 156 times exactly. So far, it proved to be accurate, fun, and functioning properly. However, There is some side to side play in the cylinder. I mean, it seems more than normal. Even when locked, the cylinder seems to have some side to side looseness...
