    Nice one.

    I have only been across the pond once, but I will never forget 4-packs of Bud, priced like boutique beer.

    The power of marketing is a thing.

    If Taurus is smart, they should keep working to improve QC until they can market their guns as "Smiths, but we take the metal shavings out of the lockwork first." I am not sure market forces will push them in that direction.

    I had one, too. I agree with all that. (Sold it to a friend who had a rather urgent need of one.)

    I shoot my PT92 every bit as well as my px4, and just as well as my friend's gussied up P226. It needs new springs for the accompanying magazine collection something fierce, but they are pretty old too.

    If I find another from the same era, I will snatch it up if it was in good shape. Perfect for that " my friend/family member needs a gun" sale or loan.

    Even our esteemed section moderator has endorsed the Taurus 431 as likely to work.

    I mean, at least this model HAS sights.

    If the quality is decent Taurus just kicked the (expletive deleted) out of S&W, Ruger, and Colt.

    Not just Taurus either. Saw one of these at a gun show yesterday:


    https://charterfirearms.com/products...d66eb4b5&_ss=r


    3", 7 shot, .32 H&R, with fiber optic front sight! According to the dealer a fairly new model in their catalog. Charter Arms though... Hopefully the second tier manufacturers can put some pressure on the big boys with these designs. Well that, or if the tier two's can up their quality...

    I mean, it's 2020. Why do we not put good, replaceable, sights on revolvers?

    I'm this . close to selling my retired Glock 42 to try one of these things. May God have mercy on my soul. How well do Taurus revolvers generally take to a hammer bob?

    Edit for question.
