So that got me to thinking, and I've been looking around ever since but there seems to be pretty polarizing opinions of Taurus's so I thought I ask if anyone has direct experience with the Tracker series, especially the 970-990 series Taurus 22 Magnum/LR rifle pistols? Issues, concerns, things to consider, etc.?
Bonus points for pictures!
Thanks and Happy Shooting!
I have 4 Taurus rim fires and love them all.
4" Stainless M94 - bought used, my 1st Taurus
Tracker 17 6.5" bought used (17HMR) I affectionately call it the rim fire Dirty Harry would own. I have scoped it and hunt with it.
Trackers 970 and 971 bought new with in a month of each other. The 970 is still NIB and the 971 I have around 100+ rounds through. It is a good shooter. I am planning on scoping the 970 for squirrel season this year.
I also have a M66 7 shot 357, a PT618 .380 and a PT870 .40SW
I have owned 8 Tauri in all. The one that got away was a pink PT132 Mil Pro and the ONLY reason I sold it was my buddy begged me to sell it to him for his wife. That .32ACP was a tack driver.
I also one SW, Walther, Beretta (no Rugers yet)
I have yet to buy a bad Taurus, new or used.
