Good question and I wish I could provide the answer you're seeking. I can only speculate that it could have been due to that particular model not selling as well as they had anticipated. Taurus has a handful of mainstays in their lineup (PT92, PT1911, M66 etc) and some models or variations thereof that they produce for a short span of time and later discontinue.jlg said:Folks,
I've wanted one of these for a few years now, and now that I want to get one, they are discontinued!!
1) Any ideas WHY this was discontinued??? I've heard that titanium was too expensive (but they are still making other titanium models), that it just wasn't selling, etc. -- anyone know the real reasons?
2) Any other ideas for a CCW 357? I don't want a snubbie, like the idea of 7 shots, and 29 oz. for the stainless version of the 627 still seems a bit heavy. The 24oz of the titanium is about the same as my Kahr K40 which is reasonable.
3) How is the 627 4" stainless in terms of accuracy, recoil, etc.??
Anything to be aware of with this gun good/bad/indifferent??
I agree with the suggestion of gunbroker. I'd check there periodically and see if one is listed and then grab it up.
