I have a chance to purchase a new Taurus blued 605 for under $300. Can anyone with actual experience with this model tell me pros or cons to purchasing it? Thanks in advance.

I have a Taurus model 85. It out-shoots my Colt, S&W, and Dan Wesson.

I had a 605 for a while. It worked just fine, as good as any other snubbie.

I have had two - a 605 and a 617. I had trouble at the range with short stroking the trigger and locking it up. Probably operator error but it happened enough that I sold them down the river. My SIL picked up a new 605 and first time at the range it broke something internal and locked up real tight. Some folks swear by em, some swear at em...

Had one for a while. It did not like hi-power magnum loads like buffalo bore. Shot fine with most everything else. Try one before you buy it. That little gun has a LOT of recoil. Not comfortable to shoot.
