Did you know that Taurus International Manufacturing, Inc. produced its first revolver in 1941? That means that the company now has over 70 years of experience in manufacturing high-quality revolvers. You would think that in that time, they would have gained a bit of know-how and applied it to their designs. Guess what. They did.

What they called the Model 38101SO – their first production revolver – blended elements from revolvers manufactured by both Colt and Smith & Wesson. Today, the company need not rely on the designs of other manufacturers to produce their affordable yet reliable firearms. And there is no better example than the new Taurus Model 605 Protector.

The Taurus Model 605 Protector is a double/single-action revolver with a five-shot, stainless steel cylinder that readies five rounds of the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge for use when you need it most. What is more is that it is able to do so in a medium-sized frame that is suitable for both concealed carry and personal protection. Retaining all of the features you have come to expect throughout the years from a Taurus revolver, the Model 605 Protector blends power and practicality to create the company's next must-have firearm.

The Taurus Model 605 Protector is now available from Keepshooting.com. Pick yours up today for just $377.22.

Taurus International Manufacturing, Inc. has quite the interesting history. It began in 1939, when a small tool and die company was founded in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The company began by producing small tools designed for use with various manufacturing processes. In the years that followed, the company branched out to include divisions focused on metals manufacturing, plastics, body armor and, most importantly, firearms. That company is Forjas Taurus, what we commonly refer to as Taurus International. Since its inception, Taurus has had ties to both Smith & Wesson and Beretta, which allowed the company access to information related to the design, manufacture and tooling of some of the world's most popular pistols – including Beretta's 92 series. Since then the company has learned a thing or two about arms production and is now one of the largest manufacturers of small arms in the world.

Today, Taurus International offers a wide range of products from revolvers to both steel- and polymer-framed pistols. The company seeks to bolster their lineup with the new Taurus Model 605 Protector – a lightweight, polymer-framed revolver from the Protector Series designed as a powerful option for concealed carry.

Though often overlooked, the revolver is an ideal choice for concealed carry and personal protection due to its reliability and ease of use. Not to mention the quickness and simplicity with which one can clear a fail-to-fire, something that can be completed with no more than a cock of the hammer or a pull of the trigger. Toss in five rounds of the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge and you can kiss your semi-automatics – and any possible ne'er-do-wells – goodbye.

The Taurus Model 605 Protector packs a great deal of power into a small package that features a two-inch barrel alongside an overall length of just 6.7 inches. And because the revolver is built on a lightweight polymer frame the Model 605 Protector benefits from an unbelievably light weight of just 19 3/4 ounces. Coupled with the sizeable recoil of the .357 Magnum cartridge, the Model 605 Protector may present a challenge for some inexperienced shooters. If safety is a concern, you will be pleased to hear that this particular model is equipped with the Taurus Security System, an integral trigger lock that, when engaged, prevents any functioning of the revolver. Included with every purchase are two keys, which can be used to engage the integral trigger lock. Other features include rubber grips and a notched rear sight along with a fixed front sight that includes a red fiber-optic insert for precision targeting.

Best of all, the Taurus Model 605 Protector comes with the Taurus Unlimited Lifetime Repair Policy. Taurus International has pledged to repair, free of charge, any firearm manufactured or imported by the company. For details, visit the official website of Taurus International.
