Taurus "Mountain Revolver"

Guys,

I came across a stainless Taurus 4 inch bbl revolver with the words "Mountain Revolver" on it. It's ported and the ports are made with a chamber for the gas so the 4 inch barrel really is maybe 3 1/2 (at least effective barrel length.)

Looks tight enough but I have no idea as to any complaints about them.

The gun even looks alot like a S&W Mountain gun but with regular wood grips. It has thinner barrel and 1/2 underlug (again like a S&W). And the barrel has flat sides.

They want $398 for the gun and might go lower.

I have several S&W N frames, including S&W Mountain Revolver but I hate shooting them alot due to their value.

So, is this Taurus a good gun?

Thanks,

Deaf

I'd take it for maybe $325. Some will say avoid taurus completely. They sure aren't S&W's but they work fine to me.

My wife has a thing for underdogs and she has brought home several Taurus pistols. I have learned to keep my mouth shut because none of them have failed,

Las year she brought home a Taurus "Tracker" 4" 7 shot .357 w/ported barrel. I really like the goldarned thing. So much so that I am asking Santa to bring me the 5 shot .41 magnum model for Xmas.

Deaf, you know your way around revolvers....if it checks out for you, it should do nicely.

I bought a Taurus 82 .38 that was like new condtion and I love this thing. It is the smoothest double action I ever shot and at 10yds it puts every shot just where I look. Took it apart and it looks every good as my Smiths'. I bought it as a cheap gun to leave in the truck and I find myself shooting it every week.

Yea Berto but I've googled my arse off and I can't find any mention of this kind of Taurus!

That is why I ask!

Thanks,

Deaf

Looks like it's called the 'mountaineer'!

Ok, they go for $375-400.

I'll look some more!

For use at the range and at the right price I would consider it. I would also consider shooting most any N frame I have. To me whatever the gun might loose in comparative value over a decade or three of ownership would be more than offset by the joy of shooting it/them. If I had a Registered Magnum (original one) that was virtually new I guess I wouldn't shoot it.
