About ten years ago at a gun show, I purchased a small Taurus revolver with a 2 inch barrel in .38 Special for $125. When I went out to shoot it, it would fire the first round but no BANG after that. Checking the gun, I discovered that it would not index correctly. The cylinder was too loose and free wheeling. Anyhow, it was totally useless. My son bought it from me with the idea of taking it to a gunsmith to get it fixed. After about nine years he finally took it to his repairman who decided to send it back to Taurus. Taurus sent him a brand-new Taurus model 85 revolver in exchange! THIS GUN SELLS FOR AROUND $300. They said that the old gun was not repairable. THREE CHEERS FOR TAURUS!!!
