I've fired other's Taurus guns and they seemed fine. The revolvers were a bit rough. Have had occasion to shoot the Taurus PT1911 and the Taurus PT92 and they seemed quite nice.
My brother-in-law extensively dry-fired a gritty Taurus .357 snub over a weekend and smoothed it up to be very slick. He still off loaded it in favor of a 2 1/2-inch S&W Model 66.
