These reviews seem to be some what jumble together so Id like to make it clear that the 605 s/s 2 inch 24 ounce 5 shot revolver is the subject of this review. I really like this gun. Having thoroughly checked out the S&W model 60 I have no regrets with my purchase of the Taurus 605 at a savings of around $150. The workmanship from the forging/machining to the choice of grips is first rate. I must say I did not find it comfortable or pleasant to fire .357 loads in it, definitely no damage to the piece or me but the recoil is enough to instill slight pain to the area between the thumb and forefinger, and decrease the 5 inch groups @ 25 Yards I achieved with REM. 125gr. JHP+Ps. One last thing. The trigger on this instrument is so light and smooth especially in single action - Never apply your finger to the trigger unless you want it to fire.
