New acquisition. Magnum snubbie.

Been working lots of overtime recently. Looking around a few of the guns shops and picked up this thing. 
Yes it's a Taurus, but for the price and the only other thing was a Charter Arms but would be 38 special only.  Anything else in a magnum was twice the price. 

Played with it quite a bit, fit and finish is actually good and the trigger is nice. Too busy to shoot it and the range was packed, but will be interesting. Came with the two and three finger grips

19.25 ounces Empty. 
22.225 loaded with five 158 grain fully magnum hydrashok. Yes it will be a handful but should serve me well.

    Hope it works as good as my Ruger LCR.

    Polymer?
    Are those nut recesses in the frame?  Is it put together with nuts and bolts?

    The LCR in .357 Mag is a handful...I suspect that will be the same......on the other hand...if you miss you might just set their ass on fire...

    Let us know how it works for you.  With what they have available for the price, I want to love them. But, some years back I had bad luck with them.  Hopefully today they are being built better

    I thought of that too. Just funnier the way you said it. 

    Yes Zee it is put together with nuts and bolts since the frame is two piece. Funny thing is the nuts are security Torx...which i happen to have. 

    On a side note the frame being polymer is larger than normal so it won't fit the holster the steel 605 does. I have heard the sp101 holsters fit. Anyone happen to have a spare?

    Interesting. . .

    Can you post a pic or two of the inside of the frame window?

    Looks like they've created a metal chassis that starts with a flame-cut shield above the barrel, goes down to probably have a threaded insert for the barrel, goes down further to contain the crane and to the rear for the recoil shield and mounting the guts.

    Any metal on the topstrap?

    That’s just something I’ve never seen before. Interesting. 👍🏻

    The Ruger LCR has something similar. Right above the cylinder release. I've shot the LCR in 38 special. It's a handful to say the least. It's about 6 ounces lighter than the Taurus and about 2 ounces  heavier than the Ruger's magnum version. So an interesting gun. Bound to be a handful.

    Also you gave me an idea. I bet the holster that fits the LCR would have a shot to fit the 605 Poly!

    Fits like a literal glove. Tight and well made. $44 and worth every cent so far.
