      Not bad, it reminds me a lot of my old Rossi, they probably resurrected the old tooling with nicer QC than the old ones.

      Anon it's 2024, 300~ bucks is like the minimum you can pay for a steel gun.

    Why not .357?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      It's more expensive to make a cylinder rated for .357+p when you can just do a .38+p. If they're using old tooling it also may be that they don't want to retool to make .357 cylinders

    I actually kinda want a 38 special revolver…. Got a lot of reloading gear and now I have about 1500 pieces of 38 special brass…. Feels like I should have something more than my Blackhawk to run it through..

    It seems like it's meant to compete with the Rock Island m200 and m206. For me it wins because it's so much prettier.

      You can't compete with RIA at the price point and still be .357. Besides, small frame revolvers will beat themselves to death on the .357. It's like when people begged and pleaded with S&W to make a .357 version of the Model 10 and after years S&W finally made the model 13 and still told people that if they wanted to shoot .357 regularly they should go to the model 19. You just cant pack that much punch into a K-frame size and expect it to be happy for long.

      5 shots is a bit weird though, they literally make 6 shot .38 cylinders already so why not just use those? And it's .38, it's not exactly a bear of a cartridge. Unless they are planning to make a .357 version in the future, which I doubt. Or they are thinking of a .327 version with 6 rounds? Or they are genuinely targeting the CC revolver market, I'm not sure. 3" is a pretty happy medium where you CAN still conceal it, so the reduced cylinder diameter would help a lot.

      Model 10s are great revolvers, but they're not ideal conceal carry guns for most people carrying revolvers.

        I don't see how the one in the OP makes a good carry gun either. Unless the only thing that matters is cost. I see they make a 2in version as well though that would be better.

          Model 10 is square butt, a much larger grip, 3 inch barrel is easy to conceal IWB with a real holster (something you revolvergays are adverse to)

            Anonymous

            I wasn't trying to argue the model 10 is a better carry gun, I just assumed anyone who would buy this was buying it to scratch the blued revolver itch because there are so many better carry options that a steel framed 5 shot revolver in the year of our lord 2024.

            If you just want a blued revolver I don't get why you would buy this instead of a nice old smith while they are still around.

              You answered your own question in your first post. MSRP is ~$360. These are competing with the RIA M200/206 or something like the Charter Arms Undercover.
              The uncommon Model 10 variants like the 3 in. version are harder to find and are starting to enter the low end of collector prices when they pop up online. A model 36 would be the more affordable s&w blued revolver at this point.

              I'm guessing it's because the old Model 10s aren't as plentiful as they used to be and require more effort to find. I bought mine in 2012, and at the time, you could go around to the all the gun stores and pawn shops in town and you were guaranteed to find at least one, along with several Ruger P89/95s. Today, it's a little bit different and you will probably have better luck buying the Model 10 online, but then even if you can find a $350 deal, you still don't get to inspect this 50 year old gun until you buy it. After a certain point, more people will start buying the gun in front of them instead of waiting for the perfect catch to come along.

            Plenty of round butt Model 10s in existence too. In fact, they literally started as round butt guns in the 1890s.

          Taurus does make snubs too.

          https://i.imgur.com/TvmLw1o.jpeg

          Yeah it's a nice looking gun, but I always wonder why they make the grip so thin. I like them bulkier, like the new nambu

          the older revolvers of the late 1800s and early 1900s just had thin grips like that. Keep in mind people were literally just smaller back in the day.

          MSRP isnt' just 360, it's that Taurus guns almost always go for at least $50 under MSRP and often closer to $100. I'm betting these will sell for $299 on the streets. At that point it's basically going to be the "best" cheap revolver you are probably going to find that isn't used.

          >no internal lock
          I'd rather have an S&W with a lock than this thing

          maybe by 2034 Taurus will be tolerable

          Model 10s didn't really have covered ejector rods either. That just wasn't a thing.
          >Cylinder release
          It's probably fine. It looks like it has a bit of an angle to it. Can't see it in person to compare but the Smiths I have vs the Tauruses have been quite literally fine. It's not like taurus doesn't understand ergonomics on their other revolvers. Their revolvers are literally fine. People forget that Taurus and S&W were owned by the same company once.

            Taurus revolvers don't lock on the ejector rod, they lock on the crane.

            I don't hate the way Taurus designs their parts, but I do hate it when coupled with what normally would be a classically-styled gun

        Saw these 38 snubbies for 250, the 38 is comparable to the 9mm and the shell casings stay inside the gun. In Hawaii they hunt hogs with revolvers, not sure if it is feasible with these.

          I would like to think that 357 Magnum would be the minimum to hunt hog, but I wouldn't doubt 38spl in a state like that.

      Its easy to forget in the monotony that you live in a world of milk and honey with regards to getting reliable newly made firearms on the cheap. And they are mostly well supported by the existing aftermarkets.

    What I don't fully get is the 5 round cylinder. Its not going to be much of a cost saving, right? They make 5, 6, and 7 shot cylinders already so it can't be that. I have a feeling CC is the purpose, in which case it makes sense because 3" barrel and 5 or especially 6 round cylinder is about as large as you are going to get... but Taurus already makes a 5 shot revolver of its size (albeit like $100 more or so, which may be the point). It's like a long version of their existing snubs, albeit this has a blued finish and not the uglier black finish they usually come with.

    Or they are planning a 6 shot .327 version in the future? 5 shots is probably going to get you through a fight anyway, the record holder for self defense was 4 people with a 5 shot .38 anyway. Not ideal but still doable.

    Why can't these dumb shits hide the brand name on the bottom of the barrel like on other repros? Nobody wants to advertise that they own a Taurus.

      a repro is trying to hide the fact it's a repro. This isn't a repro, it's a production firearm based on an older design.
