I purchased a 606 ported 357 brand new back in 1997 for a back up. I think they only made it for two years back then. I regret selling it. Now that I'm retired and older i have arthritis in my thumbs and i have to sell me semi autos. I have a hard time reloading clips. I'm looking for another stainless 606 6 shot ported 357 double action revolver that would be much easier to load. Your help would be much appreciated!! Thank you!

Thanks Mark. I have been a faithful Taurus owner for 30+ years now. Have never had a problem with any of them!

I had never heard of the Taurus 606, but I have now due to you and Google I am becoming more versed on it.

Now that I have that out of the way, WELCOME to the greatest place to be on the internet. Pull up a chair, join in conversation, made some friends and become family all in one place. Seriously the T/A group here is pretty fantastic as a whole.

Curious, have you tried some of the new magazine loaders on the semi auto magazines? There are a few that do make loading a mag much easier on the fingers.

Always good to have someone new drop in, be sure to stop in at the "Lounge", it is more of a catch all of conversations and personalities.

Welcome to TA from Cherokee County, Georgia.
I'll ditto the above suggestion to try the newfangled mag loaders. I'm a revolver guy, but if the loaders make your current arsenal usable, win-win.

I don't have arthritis, but I do love my Maglula for reloading magazines.

Welcome from Illinois.

As mentioned, the maglula loader makes magazine loading easier. Saves your thumbs.

I have a 692 and they are ported. They come with a.357 cylinder and a 9mm cylinder which uses clips.

As others have said a magazine loader like the UpLula will make loading simple and easier on your thumbs. With arthritic thumbs, I imagine that racking a slide can produce discomfort also so, I understand your decision to go back to a revolver. Finding that 606 might be a challenge but, I think that if you take a look at current Taurus offerings, you will find something that you like equally as well or better.
