Gun Report

Taurus Model 62 Carbine 22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We liked the handy feel of the light Taurus, and it worked well with Long Rifle cartridges, but its accuracy was not good. It showed some signs of promise, and a careful rifle tuner might be able to make this one shoot better. Note the tapered-to-the-rear pistol grip.

It's hard to tell the Taurus from the Winchester. The Taurus was a very close copy, but that safety on top of the action is a giveaway. Workmanship was pretty good here.
Here we see the sharp rear edge of the forend and the takedown screw. In this photo the action is just starting to open, and the bolt is slightly above the op of the main action body.
Spin that slotted thumbscrew out and tug, and this is what you get. At 4.7 pounds, we suspect this take-down Taurus will find its way into many backpacks.
