    Question Taurus 425 .41 Mag

    Anyone own one of these or have any experience with one? I love the .41 caliber and I am casually looking for a double action revolver that won't break the bank. I have a buddy who is really loyal to Taurus but a few of the guns he has owned in the past have been of questionable quality..at least to me. Any advice?

    I have a Tuarus 415 which is the same pistol with a 2.5 inch barrel and no ports. I bought it as a backup to my 1894fg. The are well made and reliable. You are not buying a S&W 657 so don't expect that level of fitting but don't worry about buying a POS either.

    thearborbarber, do you reload for the .41? I have heard that these Trackers, being as compact as they are, do not have the cylinder length for some of the heavier bullets. If you do reload do you just keep to the more traditional bullet weights?

    First here is a resource for you about Taurus® firearms: Taurus Firearms Forum - TaurusArmed.net / Taurus Guns

    Secondly your choices of 41 Magnum Taurus revolvers are limited to these two revolvers that are 5 shot models..........

    I personally have 7 Taurus® revolvers albeit in 38 Special and 357 Magnum calibers. I am
    EXTREMELY SATISFIED with all of them. A close friend, that I spring turkey hunt with; has the 4" 5 shot Mdl 425SS4 and he loves it. I like it so much as I plan to purchase on myself wihin the next several months.

    That's just about all I can afford shoot. I mostly use 215gr LSWC's. I also reload Hornady 210gr XTP's. I also tried some some cast performance 250gr WFN's. They all chamber fine. The 250gr WFN's have too much recoil to be useful. I carry 170gr Win. Silvertips for CCW. I have a Crimson Trace Laser Grip.



    250gr WFN, 210gr XTP, 170gr Slitvertip

    I have the Taurus 415 with the ported barrel that I purchased when they came out. It is a great gun for what it was made for. Mine has over 6000 rounds out of it now and is still as tight as it was new. I haven't shot many heavy load through it because it is a hand full when it goes off.
    It is always a struggle when I'm heading into the woods on which 41 I'm gonna take. This one or my Blackhawk.

    That's just the thing. I have a Blackhawk in .41 but it would be nice to have a good double action as well. And since I don't have the funds to pursue my usual S&W indulgence, I have been looking at less expensive options. And it seems that Taurus is the only one who make something like the 425. Especially for a mid $400 gun.

    There is a lot to be said for Taurus® firearms in general. If you you buy a new Smith & Wesson®, you receive what they (S&W®); call a lifetime warranty. In reality should you give your gun to someone, or leave it to a family member after you are gone; the warranty disappears. The lifetime warranty only applies to you the original purchaser. Now Taurus® was the first firearm manufacturer to ever offer a lifetime warranty (1977). The difference is that Taurus® warrants the firearm; not the purchaser. If you buy a used Taurus®, and are say the fourth owner; the gun still has a lifetime warranty. If you are the, 50th, 60th, or 100th owner your Taurus® firearm HAS A TRUE 100% LIFETIME WARRANTY!

    I have seven Taurus® handguns and I'm buying more!!!!!

    Dawei, I do agree that they make a good revolver. I will still prefer my Smith's (regardless of warranty). I just like them better than any revolver built by anyone else. And I have had experience with many different brands of revolvers. Ruger is my second choice. But Taurus does make a very fine revolver for the money. Now I would have to disagree with their auto pistols. The buddy that I referred to in my OP has owned 4 of their autos. 3 24/7s and one PT1911. The only good one has been the 1911, the others have been disposed of. Since that is my experience, I will stay far away from their autos. But I think I am putting this 425 on the list of firearms to procure.
