Taurus® Tracker® 627 Revolver w/Adjustable Sights
Reliable, Solid 357 Magnum
This is a very reliable, solid, .357Magnum revolver. The cylinder holds 7 rounds, which is a plus, but the most appreciated feature are the RibberGrips. They are comfortable and provide a solid feeling of control while damping the recoil of full loads to easily manageable and comfortable-to-fire levels. With the RibberGrips the perceived recoil seems to me to be not much more than my solid handled 9mm hand gun.
When firing the Taurus Tracker by pulling the trigger, it is smooth and consistent in the draw. If you cock the hammer beforehand to fire, the trigger is crisp and definite. The sights have so far proven themselves to be rugged. The stainless steel finish cleans up well, even after a long shooting session. My only complaint would be that the barrel porting is hard to get completely clean.
In my personal opinion, this firearm seems to "prefer" any round between 125grain up to 180grain.
I've noted that lighter grain rounds (either in .357 or .38Special) tend to shoot a little more "dirty" from this firearm, with more cleanup being required between the cylinder facing as well as in the barrel ports.
This is a firearm that I would and have recommended to others. It's a solid, reliable gun with dependable consistency.
And if you look around in some of the better gun shops, you will be able to find 7-round speed loaders for it, although you may have to ask them to order them in. But they are available!
