After working well for about 6 months, my 605 (.357 stainless) locks up about every 2 or three shots. I had to send my Judge back last week. Let's see: 2 Taurus revolvers owned; 2 Taurus revolvers don't work. I used to own 4 Taurus handguns. Sold the two pistols because they didn't shoot very well. Now I only own 2 and I like them but they are in the shop. When repaired, I plan to keep them, but I'm sorry to say that I'm probably not going to buy another Taurus until I am convinced that their quality control has improved.
