The November issue of Shooting Illustrated published a letter from a reader who suggested Taurus make a carbine version of their Judge revolver and name it the “Supreme Court Judge”. Gary from Oklahoma has had his wish come true. The new Taurus Circuit Judge is a revolver carbine that can chamber .410 shotshells (2.5″ and 3″) and .45 Long Colt.
The design is very similar to the Russian KBP MTs 225 revolver shotgun. The Circuit has a very attractive Monte Carlo stock (I guess a synthetic stock will be introduced at a later date). A cylinder guard on the left side of the gun prevents gas and flames from scorching your arm.
|Caliber||.45 Long Colt, .410 2.5″ and 3″ shells|
|Finish||Wood / Blue|
|Front Sight||Fiber optics|
|Rear Sight||Fiber optic|
|MSRP (Price)||Not yet announced.|
The Circut Judge will be avalible with either a rifled barrel or a smoothbore barrel. The smoothbore version will only be able to fire .410 rounds.
I really look forward to shooting the new Judge. It looks nice, feels nice and I am sure is a lot of fun to shoot.
