Back in the mid-1900’s, you would never believe that Forjas Taurus would be where it is today. It’s hard to believe that a small metal and plastic manufacturer in the southern coastal city of Porto Allegro, Brazil could develop into one of the most impressive weapons designers in the world.
Yes, the 6 or 8 inch stainless .357/38 8-shooter made by Taurus. I've heard plenty of rumors that it's one of Taurus's few "guaranteed" shooters, but I would like to hear it firsthand from satisfied Taurus 608 owners here.
I had to tell some one, so I figured I might as well tell you all. I picked up my Taurus at a local gun show, new for $400 out the door (after a little silver tongue action.) Now This thing came pretty well oiled up, took me a 1/2hr to get it all off. No big deal. First time I took her to the range I put 200 rounds of Remington 38+p rounds through it. Man O Man was it a Daisey. The gun fired just fine, the trigger in double action isn't as smooth as some of my S&W's but just right in single action. I'm no sharp shooter, but I swear I placed some of my best groups today with this thing. Great gun, if your in the market for a good .357, look for a model 66 Taurus.
