Taurus Model 941 .22 Magnum

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The weighty Taurus Model 941 was well made and very comfortable, but had a huge problem. It wouldn't fire. This would of course be fixed by Taurus for no charge, but for the purposes of our test, this is a fatal problem. We liked the lines and the better velocity (for just two shots) of the Taurus over the 4-inch NAA, but thought the weight was excessive for this power level.

Yep, you get eight shots, plus an ejector that zings the empties out of the gun if worked smartly, and you won't be in danger of losing any of the gun's pieces over the side of your canoe. The 941 showed very fine workmanship except for the faulty hammer.
The arrow points to the maximum extension of the firing pin as driven by the hammer. The pin should have flown forward from the blow of the hammer, but didn't. The gun would not fire. It took six or eight drops of the heavily sprung hammer to fire a single round.
