Taurus's new Raging Judge Magnum

Taurus’s Judge revolvers have proved to be incredibly popular. Not resting on their laurels, Taurus has introduced the gigantic Raging Judge Magnum. In additional to the standard Judge cartridges, the .410 shotshell (2.5″/3″) and .45 Colt, the Raging Judge can chamber the .454 Casull! Outside of Africa there is probably nothing that cannot be taken down with a Raging Judge Magnum.

The handgun will be available with either a 3″ or 6″ barrel and in either a stainless or blued finish. The 6″ version includes a vent-rib for use with a scope mount.

Like the Taurus Raging Bull line, the gun is big and it is heavy. The advantage that the Judge has over similar .454 chambered guns is its ability to chamber shot shells. A hunter or fisherman can load a shotshell in the first chamber for snakes and .454 in subsequent chambers to defend against bears. The cylinder holds six rounds.

    Just got a holster from out of the bag .com. Learned my lesson that it is a 6.5.

    It should be possible to fire a S&W 460 in the Raging Judge Magnum. Has anyone tried it?
