I would not mind getting one of those. Does it have straight eight sights on it. I really do not care for the straight eight sights. I know it says 575 delivered but are there any charges involved. I figured if I waited a bit the price would come down. Seems like that is always the case with popular new guns.

Why is it called Hotrod? The one on Taurus web site I noticed has black lettering on the slide.I gripped about it last year,but Taurus web page will say "new for 2007" until April.

Congratulations, you'll love it. You got a good price. I paid $569 plus tax. The prices are not going down on these. Taurus raised the MSRP to $800 on the SS model this past year. With steel prices going up again, every manufacturer will have to raise prices. I find the Heine sights very easy to adapt to & the gun is unbelievably accurate. My son now gets lucky because I am giving him my Blue one.

Ack, I just ordered that exact gun (also from BudsGunShop) for $625 :( last week... am hoping to pick it up from the FFL this weekend. Could've saved $50...

Also, notice the description says wood grips, though the picture shows plastic grips. :???: I'm starting to wonder exactly what it is that I'm getting...

Let us know what grips are on it when you get it please. I am thinking about buying one and like to know what I am buying. Were there any other costs involved with them or was final price 575? I know I will have to pay my ffl. Thanks,
Harry

I have the Hogue all rubber wrap arounds on my blue one, the fit was good but I did have to stretch the grip a little to line up with one of the grip screw bushings. Very comfortable with these grips if you're going to shoot a lot of rounds at one time....
