    Thumbs up Taurus 608 .357 mag - Hallmark of Accuracy

    For a long time i wanted to add .357 Magnum to my collection, and decided to buy one. Just few days later i talked to Denovo87 bro and asked him for his expert opinion, then later talked to bbiillaall bro for his, and he advised me to buy a 1911 first. He said bro if you didn't fire a .45ACP then you haven't fired anything and no doubt the .45ACP is a awesome caliber. After that i was so much confused that i couldn't decide what to buy. i made up my mind that i'll decide what to buy at the shop after seeing and handling both guns. When i got to Lahore, I was inclining more towards the .45acp. But to my surprise the prices of Taurus 1911 had skyrocketed and i could find Taurus 1911 without rails, i didn't like the one with rails, i think the the ugly rails of Taurus ruins the 1911 looks. Second choice was Zigana 1911, couldn't find that too. So decided to go for the 357. Now faced another decision, either to go for sleek and better looking 627 Tracker or Big, Beefy, Hunky 608 with a extra round capacity. So again confused, but decided to go with the 608, because it had more weight, so lesser recoil expected. Extra round of 357, more the marry. The best thing was 608 was with ported barrel and the 627 wasn't. Also like the balance of the 608. It was balanced in the middle and the 627 was bit nose heavy, and i had already decide to buy one with 6.5 inch barrel. These were big guns and i'm not a big guy so 608 seemed a logical choice. After firing the gun for the first time at Sialkot after the Caracal vs Glock Showdown, i was in love with this gun. The accuracy of this gun is mind boggling. We all were hitting everything we were aiming for, be it the Pepsi bottles or the empty Shaheen shotgun shells. It was killing targets. There is almost no muzzle rise, the felt recoil was less then the 9mm, all because of the weight and ported barrel of 608. Ah! don't even get me started about the sonic boom the .357 mag creates and the sound is it makes. Awesome! The 608 is a so fun to shoot and acuraacy of the gun is so phenomenon that i can shoot this gun all day no problem. The trigger in SA mode is so light and crisp that you can only see it to believe it. The DA pull is long and heavy but manageable. Infact the SA pull of the trigger is so light that i still can't get use to it, and it keep shooting the gun low. You'll see in the targets below.
