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....

Got mine yesterday, it's a regular stainless. The hammer is of the style on Taurus' web page, and is not like the photo on BudsGunShop. Also, despite the text description at Bud's, it did not come with wooden grips.

I'm still wondering why Bud's called it a "hotrod"
