The entire face of the Taurus' cylinder is recessed, not just the individual chambers. We had less trouble with cylinder drag with this design. The ejector star is held in check by pegs, which is an old system since abandoned by Smith & Wesson. However, for the first time in a Taurus revolver the star is also held by how it meshes with the cylinder. This is a variation of the way Smith & Wesson holds its star in place.
The Taurus Tracker features a key-operated hammer lock, wide target hammer, and a Millett-style white outline rear sight.
