Taurus Adds .357 Magnum to Raging Hunter Line

    Taurus Raging Hunter (Taurus)

    Taurus have announced that a .357 Magnum revolver will be joining their Raging Hunter line. The new .357 Magnum Raging Hunter will join the original .44 Magnum chambering. The revolver has a seven, rather than six, round cylinder and comes in either a matte black or stainless steel frame.

    The revolver will be available in three barrel lengths—8.375-, 6.25-, and 5.125-inch (Taurus)

    Here’s Taurus’ press release on the .357 Mag chambered Raging Hunter:

    Taurus, manufacturer of quality handguns for hunting, self-defense, and competition, is following up the recent introduction of the company’s latest big-bore revolver, the Raging Hunter, with a new caliber. Originally released in .44 Magnum, the Raging Hunter is now available in .357 Magnum.

    Winner of the 2018 American HunterHandgun of the Year Golden Bullseye Award for its reliability, innovative design, and value, the Raging Hunter hits all the high marks handgun enthusiasts desire in a hunting revolver. Boasting a sleeved barrel construction, factory-tuned porting, and a gas-expansion chamber to reduce muzzle rise, the Raging Hunter is designed for quick follow-up shots for short- and mid-range big-game hunting. Ergonomics and shooter comfort come by way of the revolver’s exceptional balance, lightweight barrel housing, and cushioned insert grips.

    The new .357 Magnum Raging Hunter joins the .44 Magnum to give shooters another option in big-game handgun calibers. Available in three barrel lengths—8.375-, 6.25-, and 5.125-inch—the .357 Magnum Raging Hunter is a spurred hammer DA/SA revolver with a seven-round cylinder. The rear sight is fully adjustable for those who favor open-sight shooting, or an optic can be mounted to the integrated Picatinny rail. The Taurus Raging Hunter also comes in two frame colors—matte black or stainless. Both feature matte black barrels and cylinders.

    All barrel lengths and color combinations of the new Raging Hunter .357 Magnum are available and currently shipping to dealers nationwide.

    The MSRP for the new revolver has not yet been confirmed but is likely to be around the $910-920 mark like the earlier .44 Magnum offering. Find out more at www.taurususa.com.
