Hi, I been posting around on the web, trying get answers about Taurus's 22lr revolvers. I am not willing to spend $550+ for a S&W and a Ruger sp 101 in 22lr thats $700... I do not want a SA only. If I am going to be spending $500 or more for a 22lr handgun I rather buy a 1911 in 45 acp from SArmory for $600.
I have done research the past two weeks on finding the "better" Taurus revolver, so far model 94's are not the best and seam to have more failure rates and sent back to factory(also checked buds gun shop reviews and its about the same what I am finding on the net, hate 94's and better reports with 990s/970). The 970/990's seams to be getting the raves although there still is binding problems and cylinder lock ups(same thing?) I do not care about DA pulls because that can lossen with time. I really had my hope set on a snubnose 22lr but I am not willing to take a risk.
So my question is really, do you own a Taurus 22lr revolver? whats your experience? I just hear alot of bashing and so little good reports, IMO if it was such a bad gun. They would have stopped making them due to no profits.
