Taurus 72. Stainless steel. 16inch barrel. 10 rounds, 22 WMR.
300 bucks including 100 rounds of ammo and a soft case.

Friends dont let friends buy Taurus, and I do belive they suck in general, but this little takedown has a great reputation.

If you like it and it goes pew, you did fine.

Fun little gun. Taurus seems to have gotten that one right.

Always wanted a blued version. I share your aversion to most thing Taurus but I would have gone for that.

I want a pump 22. But I want a Remington field master.

As far as yours goes, I say good job. 22mag is a mean little cartridge. Advantage of a fast loading pump are going to be great for follow up shots. 100 red of ammo should be $22-25 so should case, so $250 for it is not bad. Good FO

I have the blued 23" version in .22 lr.
It's been a damn good rifle.
I think I paid 179 bucks for it new about 12 years ago, you did good.

This is true.
I don't know how good it is on the rifle, but it is fun.

This.
I believe you can slam fire these but can anyone confirm?
Also, does it damage anything if you slam fire it?
In 22magnum and slam fireing for speed it should be a neat little BOB/Survival gun.

I really like the .22 WMR round. It's pretty hot. Especially compared to a .22 LR.

Good deal, I paid about 375 for the same on in 22 LR without a case or Ammo, but had to have it for my son.

22LR would be nice too but I already bought a Winchester 9422 for my son. This little gun in 22 mangum seems like a handy little gun, but still packing a punch.
Have you tried slam firing yours?

You did good.

I'd take that deal !

I have a nickel rifle and carbine, both in 22lr. I would love to have a 22WMR.
Link Posted: 12/20/2016 6:05:13 PM EST
I had a blued one with a tang peep, in 22mag. Wish I still had it, loved the short barrel.
Link Posted: 12/20/2016 6:54:06 PM EST
Haven't tried slam firing yet, but will do so.
