I have had Nine Taurus Revolvers. I sent only Two for repair. One of the break downs was my falt for not snugging up the side plate skrews when cleaning. I have never used the locks and have had no problems with them. I worked in Three Gun Shops and have seen everything from Davis to Parazzi. Some have problems some don't. We sent all makes for repairs. Just like the old saying, some days you get the ellevator and some days you get the shaft.
