The Taurus Judge is a five shot revolver designed and produced by Taurus International, chambered for .410 bore shot shells and the .45 Colt cartridge. Taurus promotes the Judge as a self-defense tool against carjacking and for home protection.
The Taurus Judge Double-Action Revolver features a solid stainless steel frame, cylinder, and barrel. The cylinder is chambered for 2-1/2" .410 shotgun shells, or .45 Colt; and the barrel is rifled. An extended ejector rod kicks out fired cases with ease. Taurus Ribber Grip absorbs recoil and enhances user control. Comes with a fixed rear sight and a high-visibility front sight. The Taurus Judge can be used as both a double- and single-action revolver. An exposed hammer allows you to cock and fire the revolver in single-action mode; and a transfer bar safety mechanism prevents the hammer from striking the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully to the rear. The Judge Double-Action Revolver utilizes the Taurus Security System, enabling you to disable the weapon completely with the turn of a key.
