The company manufactures and sells its firearms for generally less than other manufacturers due to low labor costs.
as well as having the facilities available to build virtually every part themselves.
One writer said in 2010 that the “[q]uality of Taurus handguns in the modern era is second to none”.
In 2015, Taurus settled a lawsuit for $39 million and recalled nearly one million handguns produced between 1997.
In addition Taurus was originally known for manufacturing revolvers similar in design to those offered by Smith & Wesson. The company moved away from this realm by offering larger framed models such as the Raging Bull (.454 Casull) and Raging Hornet (.22 Hornet) revolvers as well as the Judge 5-shot revolvers (.410 bore and .45 Colt).
Also One of Taurus’ most successful semiautomatic handguns has been its PT92, a model similar to Beretta’s model 92 line, but with the addition of an ambidextrous frame safety, rather than the Beretta’s slide-mounted safety.
