I work at a gunshop parttime and we got 2 in about a month ago. I looked one over and played with it. First off it's big, it's S&W L frame size. Swapping the cylinder is easy enough and the bluing was nice. Trigger is so-so it's typical Taurus. I personally wouldn't want one but I already have a few Ruger Single sixes that are 22lr/22mag convertibles. Your best bet is to find one at a gunshop and feel for yourself. If a full size double action 22 is what you want I would try and find an older S&W model 17 but that's just my opinion

I liked the feel a lot of the one I held at a gun show, but I did not buy it. I had a Model 94 from 1989 to 1996, and it was a fine piece (22LR only.) I let my then-wife keep it when we divorced. I also own a Model 66 (.357 Magnum) purchased in 1987, and it's been a decent performer as well.

I think the Ruger SP-101-22, also available in that dual-cylinder package, might be an overall better gun, and will be priced accordingly. But, I feel that I personally can get lifetime service from either.

Edit: My bad, the rimfire SP-101 is only available in .22LR; there is no Magnum cylinder option. I must have been thinking of the Single-Six.

I have a Tracker (.22lr only) I bought a year or so ago. As noted, Trackers are BIG. Mine has the 6-inch barrel, and I really wish I'd gotten the 4-inch instead. I have several hundred rounds through the thing and have had no problems whatsoever.

Really good idea. A DA Convertible revolver gives the shooter many possibilities for field and training use. I like Taurus fine, but IMO the gun is too expensive (~$500) and Taurus resale isn't good enough for me to buy one. I'd like to see the SP101 done this way.

Do they make this in stainless or is it just blued?

I have a regular 22 in stainless. It shoots well, and I like the balance and the grip which took some getting used to. I don't like it as much as the Single Six, but I like it. It takes some getting use to the grip but now it is comfortable. I have a little over 1.5K through it. A fun shoot.

Tracker 990 is a .22lrf revolver only.

The 992 is the interchangeable cylinder model. Not the 990. I own a 990 that shoots ragged holes at 75' on a competition bullseye target.

This is a 992.

I have a 992. As mentioned, it is a heavy revolver - weighs more than my Model 66 .357. It's a typical Taurus revolver - shoots well, looks okay. Good value and reliable. Cylinder change is a few seconds, and performance on both .22 versions is good. I have over 1,000 .22LR and probably 250 .22 magnum rounds through it and have had no issues with it.
