    If you get stuck for repairs (importer apparently not much use for either)or custom parts M9 Engineering makes them
    I might get one myself soon.

    Iíve recently got one in .38/.357, only shot it once so far, love it though, really good to shoot and surprisingly accurate.

    Just starting to develop my loads for it.

    I shoot both 38 and 22 and reckon that with handloads I'm shooting my 38 for about half the ammo price of 22. You can't really take the reloading time into account cos it is a hobby aint it?

    I have a Taurus in 22lr. Love it! Itís factory original only mod being me trimming the end off the coat hanger arm which is ridiculous to shoot with (donít worry itís still the correct length!). I have noticed recently the timing is slightly out when shooting double action. So Iíll have to drop it over to Alan Westlake to sort out along with installing a much better arm at the rear. I put a rail on it and use a micro red dot which is great. The only thing it needs is a speed loader, but the ones that Iíve seen are for 8 shot Taurusís. Iíve been using a straight flexible rubber strips for quicker reloads which works well, but an actual cylinder shaped speed reloaded (HKS style) would be more ideal.
    I have a 45acp version as well, which was tricked out by a comp shooter before I bought it and it is wonderful. Trigger, high vis sights, moon clips and very accurate. 45 makes a nice whole which is always very satisfying. I wouldnít change a thing about it.
    I have a 357 Alfa Proj, which is nice and light. Iím looking at target grips for it, as I find the grips a bit small at the mo. Again might take it to Alan to sort out, since I bought it from him a few years ago now. A rail would also be nice, but I donít think this is an option for Ďem.
    A few chaps down the range have the 357 Taurus and like it, but Iíve never felt the need to get one, as I have two already. I have noticed chaps using very hot factory loads in 357 which always makes me wince when Iím RO! Iím sure the frames will give out at some point!! I tend to use home loads in 357 or factory 38spl for my Alfa.

    Sounds good - can you post pics?
