I put another 100 rounds through my formerly ailing Taurus today.
The Loc-Tite seems to be holding and the accuracy is excellent.
I think I'm getting better at this double action revolver thing!! The trigger is starting to loosen up a bit as well!! :D
In short, it's now a keeper and I am very pleased.
I think I have finally found my carry gun!!! :)

Installing reduced power Wolf springs helped my snub immensely.

Hi Denfoote, For what it's worth, I installed a Wolff reduced power hammer spring and reduced power trigger return spring in my Taurus 605 a couple of years ago. I had many light strikes and went back to the OEM hammer spring but left the reduced power trigger return spring in place. The result was no more light strikes and a considerably better trigger.
If you get a "Shooter's Pack" of springs from Wolff and decide to install both trigger and hammer springs, I would suggest you bring your OEM springs and some tools with you when you go to the range just in case you want to go back to the OEM hammer spring. I was shooting both Cor-Bons and Federal, I really don't know if they have harder primers than some other brands of ammo, I only know I was getting light strikes with the Wolff reduced power hammer spring installed.

I'll think about a spring change. However, I am rather loath to change anything in a gun that I carry. I understand that it may effect the reliability of my defense weapon. One does not want light hammer strikes and such when you face that evil crettin on that dark street!!! ;)

You can cut a coil off the trigger return spring with no problems at all. Stick with Federal first than Winchester primers. CCI primers are HARD. Leave the main spring standard factory.
If you want to fool with smoothing the trigger or hammer sear - DON'T. You can't buy replacement parts like you can for a Smith.
