As long as you can accept the recoil, they're great to carry.
I did see 3 Taurus Ultralights that were purchased new from about 2006-2009. One of them was great. The other two had some issues with one of them being serious. If you check it out first, Taurus can
make a good revolver. The serious problem was on a Ti Ultralight and were the hand notches at the rear of the cylinder. The part was not perpendicular to the centerline of the cylinder and consequently, the amount of drag and the trigger pull would vary as the cylinder rotated through the 5 chambers. We were able to clean that up without issue and now it's great. The difference was only .004", but that was the difference between dragging and not. The cylinder gap opened up by about .002" as a result, but total gap was now .011". A bit big, but still acceptable. Those without a machine shop available to them would be in a real bind. I scolded the guy for not checking it out functionally before leaving the shop.
On the other hand, the S&W Scandium framed revolvers I've seen so far have all been good. This is a sample size of only about 6 since they were introduced, but it covers .38, .357, and .44 calibers. The recoil is stout, but fit, finish and function are great.
