every Taurus I own , I still own, ( more than 5)
and are ALOT more reliable than both of my S&W's and my colt's too!
same loads, same cleaning, same day shooting,
the taurus always shoots,
not so much for the other two.
I do not own a glock or sig, sold all of them.
just my opinion.
Yes, it's a fair price if all of that is included IMO. Just depends on how saturated Armslist is in your area.
I've owned a few Taurus weapons.
Revolvers, are great. Zero issues, because it's a K.I.S.S. gun. (Keep it simple stupid)
In fact I actually LOVE the Taurus Raging Bulls and Raging Judges personally.
Automatics on the other hand, they can be finicky with ammunition and cycling properly.
I use a reloader whose ammo I know is better then most off the shelf BS junk they sell at the ranges.
I have no issues with my automatics using his ammo, but box ammo I have had repeated cycling issues with my 9mm.
So blame the gun, or blame the low quality junk ammo they sell at the ranges.......take your pick.
I have an M44 and I couldn't guess how many 100s or 1000s of rounds I have shot with it and it is still as tight as the day I bought it. All of my Taurus pistols and revolvers have been trouble free. I shoot competition with a Taurus PT92 that has nothing more than a little trigger work and different sights. I have Kimbers, Berettas, S&W, Rock Arms stuff too. Granted, the high end hand guns look nicer, but the Taurus hand guns always fire for me. Without the extras, that M44 is worth $400.00 retail and if I was buying it, I would offer $350.00. Used is used regardless of how many times it has been fired. Used gun values never take into account how many times it has been fired unless it is unfired/new in the box.
Like others have said, firearms have a wide range of opinions on what is good, and what is junk. Kinda like the Porsche guys at the road race track. Everything other than a Porsche GT3 is a waste of time accorrding to them, but a new Corvette will run the same lap times and cost 1/3 the money.
