I was at my lgs yesterday to pick up a Keltec Sub2000 I had on layaway. I frequent the store regularly so the associate who helped me knows I like inexpensive guns. He showed me a Taurus Gaucho in 45lc with a 5.5 inch barrel. The price tag read $239. After looking the gun over I thought that I would be a fool to pass on it. The bluing was pristine and the action seemed very smooth. I put it on layaway and started researching the gun when I got home. There's not much on Youtube and surprisingly not a lot of information on this forum. Does anyone own one of these? I know they're not being produced anymore. I really couldn't find another 45lc single action revolver for anywhere near this price. Now if I could only find one in 357 magnum.

I've never actually seen one. But at that price you can't go wrong. We wanna see pictures of yours, and range reports!

Taurus no longer produces the Gaucho as of their acquisition of Heritage Arms, since it would be in direct competition with the Rough Rider.

Sadly, the Taurus Gaucho just wasn't in production all that long, nor did they make much of a splash in the wide market of SAA Clones, especially when said market is already pretty well dominated by Uberti when it comes to faithful reproductions of the SAA since they were allegedly at one point producing officially licensed Colt Single Action Army Revolvers, but from what I've read they seem to be well made, and just at a glance they appear to be superbly finished.

Personally, I wouldn't regret such a purchase one bit.

The Gaucho dates back to when Bob Morrison was the CEO of Taurus USA. They made a one time production run of these specifically for CAS. They were very popular with the CAS folks, but Taurus Brazil never made another production run. Like the Vaquero the Gaucho has a transfer bar so there is no need for carrying on an empty chamber. It is also one of the very few SA revolver's with a forged frame and in a number of ways is a stronger action than the Vaquero.

Taurus USA acquired Heritage many years after the Gaucho.
