Damn...thats a smoking deal!

Um...it's a Taurus...that's like the Hyundai of the gun world. I wouldn't shoot that with your hands if you paid me.

Kinda with you on this one. Not a big fan of Taurus. Thanks for the heads up on the deal though.

I'm not trying to present them as the best guns in the world by any stretch. It's a great deal if it's the type of gun you're interested in. The 11+1 models go for over $400 on gun broker.

I know it's cheap, but like the old saying goes "you get what you pay for."

I just wouldn't want anyone to get hurt because of a gun that's has/had reliability issues.

Now Taurus does make some good revolvers I think. At least I've never heard anyone say something bad about them.

dam that is cheap

I have had a couple of their revolvers....A Model 80 .38, and a model 86 .357 (IIRC). They seemed like a good peice. VERY strong. The finish is lacking, if I had to pick an issue with them. Alot of friends have newer auto's from Taurus, and are quite happy. Regardless, Thats a DAm good price for a decent Semi auto.

Also bought at Academy with probably a $50.00 mail in rebate or two free magazines during the December holiday period...

Good deal, but not for the first time buyer... NO safety at all and not a tactical rail. It is better the Taurus 24/7 a strengthen copy of the sigma with more features and an ambidextrous safety and a keyed lock device, better grip not straight.

TexasIslandBoy 02-10-2010 03:23 PM

true no safety but with a little work the trigger is smooth as silk

mvega1969 02-10-2010 03:27 PM

Brand wise... Smith & Wesson is better...

TexasIslandBoy 02-10-2010 03:28 PM

i think so too they just needed to spend a little time on some parts

mvega1969 02-10-2010 03:31 PM

you now that the sigma adapter to make it tactical it is sold at Academy by less than $9.00 USD?

mvega1969 02-10-2010 03:33 PM

Everyone that lives near to an Academy store check their CLEARANCE prices on handguns, rifles and shotguns some of them are a steal.
