I love 'em. I have a Taurus 605SH2 which is a 16-ounce .357 magnum snubby. The only problem that I have had with it was that one of the titanium chambers was a little "sticky" on extraction (only with "hot" .357s and never with 38 Spl or 38 Spl +Ps). I had my "smith" polish out the chambers and it's great now. They stopped making this model and it's too bad. Maybe because of minor problems like mine which was easy to resolve. However, production machining of titanium has always presented some problems.
