Pull back the hammer for a crisp single-action trigger pull, or just pull the trigger through the smooth double action. Factory installed Uncle Mike’s boot grips help keep recoil under control. The alloy frame is what keeps the weight down to only 10.5 ounces! The Chief’s Special has a reputation for being much more accurate than folks expect from a revolver with a 1.87” long barrel.

For a little more than the price of a conversion kit you can get a whole AR-15 type rifle optimized and dedicated to shooting the .22 LR caliber! Unlike dropping a conversion kit into a standard AR, this rifle’s carbon steel match grade barrel is optimized for .22 LR accuracy with a 1:15” twist rate. The magazine holds 25 rounds and the bolt hold-open device functions just like on a standard AR-15 rifle. A quad-rail forend matches up nicely to the A3 style flattop upper receiver, and is ready for you to install whatever accessories you wish. Removable iron sights are included.
The famous Taurus Judge holds five .410 shotgun shells or .45 Long Colt cartridges in its 2.5” long blued steel chambers. The front sight contains a red fiber optic to make it easy to spot in a hurry. This is a double action/single action version, which means the shooter can manually cock each shot for accuracy. The black “ribber” style grip helps manage the recoil of firing shotgun rounds through a revolver. When Taurus first released the Judge, a storm of controversy followed regarding its effectiveness, because ammunition selection in .410 was limited. Recently, ammo manufacturers have released competing personal defense rounds designed specifically for the Judge, making it more powerful than ever before. The Judge pushed the envelope on what you could do with a personal defense revolver, and it has become a resounding success!
