I just put on the Taurus wood grips on the 941 in .22 WMR. I hated the cheap rubber grips that came with it. Found this set and ordered them immediately. What a difference in this little beauty. Now it's a beautiful weapon! ;)

Inspired by your beautiful pistol, I'll post this pic. It's a Taurus 85 that I bought used and gave to my daughter.

That is a beautiful model 85. I've got one also. But it is not as pretty as yours. Taurus has done a fantastic job with their bluing and polishing. They really are very good looking weapons! :)

NON of them......
Sad truth is Taurus has gone so far down hill I would put them in the same category as Raven.. IMO they have created a product line so large that they are now the Big Box Store of Firearms working on volume rather then quality..
At the shop we sent more Taurus guns back for repair then ALL other brands combined.. I've seen numerous brand new guns broken or in-op right out of the box.. Truth is If I was the owner of a shop I prob wouldn't even carry the product line, or at least no more then a very small selection..

They used to make nice stuff, now it's a roll of the dice...
You might get a prize or you might get turd....

That said the OP has a Nice looking pistol and I hope it serves him well..

I am hesitant to say anything, but the Taurus Tracker 941 in stainless was the biggest POS gun I have ever owned. I was extremely disappointed, as I really liked the way it looked. It had a gritty DA trigger, a loose lock work, and would fully index the cylinder with a half trigger pull. SA trigger pull was tolerable.

That said, I carry a first generation PT24/7 in .45ACP on a daily basis. Its a plastic fantastic, ghetto-ready automatic with a low price point, good ergonomics, and reliable function.

YMMV

It seems to me that every complaint with the 941 line of .22 WMR is with the stainless steel models, generally in the shorter barrel lengths. The two Taurus weapons I own, model 85, blue, 2in and this 4in 941 look and work flawless. But, maybe that's just me. I use good ammo, clean them well and pay attention to how they behave. :wink:

The 941 I had was a 6" stainless Tracker. The side plate was removed and all internals blasted clean with brake free...lots of grit, gunk, and grease boogers poured out. The cylinder was removed, cleaned and reinstalled with an appropriate torque. The function was greatly improved, but nothing was going to fix the heavy DA trigger, and full index on a half pull/release.

Traded it as NIB with 100 rounds for a mint FEG P9RK and NIB Ciener 92FS .22 conversion...the new owner had that 'look' like he just won something for nothing. :bigangel:
