I actually thought about a DAO 856 .. I handled a DA/SA 856 ... at a LGS .. the hammer seems short.
So at that moment I decided on a DA/SA ...
but an inch or two low ---will fix with a few swipes of a file---shoots fine---I like it a lot.
KYGUNCO had two different 3inch models all steel listed yesterday..( at great prices)
Is it just another example of how “everything sucks,” according to the internet?
Also, I’m looking at the $289 Rossi police 38s on AIM (or maybe it’s DK). Is that a good deal?
i have read a bit that holsters can be a bit tough to find. But these are great little pistols.
Maybe 10 years ago they were accurate, but now they're producing semis and autos that are catching alot of people's attention. I cant claim to have a huge experience level with Taurus (605,85UL,856,65) but I do have quite a bit with Ruger, never sent a taurus back in I've sent in 3 rugers.
Needless to say, I don’t have any qualms with Taurus quality. They are decent guns for the money, and the corners that are cut to make the price point are the right corners to cut. My biggest recommendation when looking at a new revolver is to very carefully check that sights are straight, and check for proper lockup and timing. Once a new revolver is bought, open it up and make sure that there are no burrs or scarf left inside the frame which is what I suspect 99% of people’s complaints are. I like to use gumout carb cleaner to flush out debris on a revolver, and once it’s dried out I relube it and reassemble, but you have to let it dry first or the gumout will break down new oils.
