Taurus 627 Tracker, a question

3213 Views 15 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  dmanbass
I finally got my new Taurus. I bought a ported version, not the Competition Pro model without porting. (It was my first plan, but it does not come through official imported, so the guarantee is only 1 year.

Well, I am very satisfied with the Tracker. The trigger is excellent, so is accuracy. I shot 400 shots already with it.

Today I made some tests to test the cylinder wiggle.

I cocked the revolver and with the trigger pulled, lowered the hammer. Then, the trigger still back, I tried to move the cylinder. No front/back wiggle at all, so everything was OK. Then is tried to rotate the cylinder. A slight wiggle, but I know it is OK. Then for my surprise, I was able to rotate the cylinder clockwise. It was locked, but with no particular force I was able to rotate the cylinder, hearing a click everytime it "locked" to its position. The cylinder was not totally locked to its place.
Is this normal?
I really do not know, but I don't think I was able to do this with my old S&W 586. (But I'm not actually sure if I ever really tried it)

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you've got it working now?

I'm sure you've checked, but three little parts; ifthe sideplate yoke screw parts 47, 48 and 49 aren't re-assembled in their proper order that can mess up the cylinder functioning too. (Spring needs to be immediately behind the sideplate screw)

.357 go BOOM is right!


Gets "dirty" quick too, but worth it. I haven't had any difficulty ejecting .357's yet but then I haven't passed as many .357 rounds through mine as you have at one session. I'm wondering if rolling the .357's across a lightly lubed reloading case pad would help at all. (avoiding the primer area of course) Anybody tried that?

Otherwise it might be worth the time to run a patch through the cyclinder every 50 rounds or so.

Glad you've gotten it working though. Have fun!
Good point on the "cotton swabby thingie" (love your description, what a marketing catch phrase)

I'd assumed that cleaning the cyclinder using a .40 cal. bronze brush would also do the same thing eventually. (?)

As hard as the cyclinder is, do you feel it literally polished out the machining grooves?

And the "swabby thingie" came out showing that metal was indeed removed?

And did you use Flitz on the swabie thingie?
