Thinking of purchasing this within the next week or so. It's between this and the Springfield Arms XD Mod.2. The Taurus is half the price, and right now I can get a free 22lr revolver if I purchase it...so...

I know Taurus is not very well received...but the Judge revolver and the (Rossi) Circuit Judge are awesome firearms!

What say yall??

My gal's .38 Special from that company has misfired with three different shooters and two different ammos. A friend has one of their defective autos. The company recently settled the case, but the payout may amount to about nothing.

It all depends on what you want in a gun. Colt, Remington and Ruger all have had problems with their handguns but were quick to make things right with the buyers. We cannot say that has been the case with the brand you are favoring.

I have had good experience with a Taurus .357 MAG. However, I have a lot of respect for the Springfield Armory XD series. So much so it is usually the line I recommend to folks looking for a reliable compact carry piece.


An idea could be, find a buyer for the Taurus, buy it for the free .22 and sell the 111 or both, use that to buy the XD. OR, buy the Taurus and then trade it in towards the XD and keep the revolver or sell it. Just because they are firearms does not mean you cant capitalize on a promotion.

Hmmm, now I'm not too knowledgable about HG's, but for $130 bucks you can't go wrong.

You can't take the wife on a date for $130 these days.
So even if you don't like it, at that price, you could throw it in the lake if your unhappy with it.

I had a Taurus TCP .380 and it gave me enough problems that I sent it back twice. The second time I told them I didn’t want it back and that I wanted the G2. I carried the G2 for a couple of years. The only problem I had was it gave me soft primer strikes occasionally. It did not like perfecta ammo. I eventually sold it and bought a smith and Wesson. I’ve gone through quite a few handguns but I’ve finally decided that I like the S&W lineup so that’s what I’ve decided to collect. That’s my experience with the G2, hope it helps. Personally I’d buy the XD.

Owned a Taurus for 3 months. Never again.

Had to send it back to the manuf. and 4 months later i received the handgun only to find that the cylinder felt as if it had sand in it when spun.

Garbage firearms imho. Not worth wasting money and risking your life with a p.o.s.

I have been considering this gun and one of the main issues I've heard was/is the recoil spring assembly failing around the 1k mark.

This is remedied with and aftermarket stainless steel guide rod and spring assembly made strictly for this gun.

It seems like a good value.

If it's just a range toy, it doesn't matter. You will learn all about fixing Taurus pistols and save money on ammunition. If you want something for self defense, the XD, S&W, Glock, Sig, Walther, or Ruger would be better choices.

The first 357 revolver I shot was the Taurus. Not a lot of recoil (perhaps I was expecting more???) On the flip side, the first compact carry I held and shot was the XD Mod.2

Sleek and I like the double safety of the Mod.2. Perhaps I could capitolize lol. Though I do value hickok45 reviews of this particular gun...

I had 3 Taurus pistols in my life, all revolvers (.22, .38, and .357)

Out of the 3, the .22 and .38 were crap. Sticky cylinders / hard trigger pull on one or more of the chambers. click, click, click, then WTH, can barely cycle it.

The .357 works well but 1 out of 3 all new when I bought them is really crappy odds on getting a good working firearm.

So, no... I would not buy another.


S&W and Charter Arms has worked so much better.

If you want a reliable, compact defense pistol try a Walther PPS 2, S&W Shield, and a Glock 43 before buying the XD.

Sure, Taurus makes great self-defense pistols, if you don't mind it jamming half the time.

I had a PT145 Millennium Pro, and I will *never* own another Taurus as a result of that gun.

On the flip side, owning it made me get good at immediate action drills.

I would pass on the Millenium unless the G2 was a serious upgrade I got to of the older millenniums and they both had all kinds of issues traded them both towards an XD SubCompact .40 and never looked back. I do have a Rossi Jframe Cline type 5 shot 38spcl revolver but it’s just meh just a cheap car gun.

Smith and Ruger have some offerings in the $300 range, better than a Taurus, and I own two of them both revolvers.
