    I've read the good, bad and ugly on Taurus (plus I have had two brand new S&W's that had significant problems right out of their respective boxes). I bought a new Taurus 608 with 6 1/2 inch barrel. Very nice action, shoots well using DA. I started off with 38 special +p rounds and didn't quite make it through two dozen rounds when the cylinder locked up. The cylinder wasn't hot, there was really no carbon buildup, the cylinder release wasn't out of position. I did notice a very slight lateral wiggle with the hammer - which I don't see with any of my Smiths. Wondering if there is anything to that and that transfer bar Taurus uses. When it locks, I can release the cylinder, unload it, get things moving again, reload, start shooting and....lockup. I know Taurus provokes a number of interesting responses in the community...looking forward to any constructive feedback out there - Thanks

    I have a Taurus PT24/7 Pro that I absolutely love, and shoot the crap out of. The only problem I've ever had with it was a broken disassembly latch, which brings me to my one complaint about the company. They seem to have poor metallurgy on the small parts of all of their guns. I wouldn't be surprised if there is something broken or bent around the cylinder/transfer bar area. I would say call their customer service number and get their opinion on it.
