The Taurus Model 990 Tracker® is a brand new double/single-action revolver from Taurus International's renowned Tracker® Series that features a 6 1/2 inch barrel alongside an astonishing nine-shot cylinder that is chambered for the .22 LR rimfire cartridge. This large-frame revolver blends ease-of-use with a low-recoil rimfire cartridge to create a firearm that is suitable for a number of shooting applications, including plinking, target shooting and varmint hunting. Retaining all of the features you have come to expect throughout the years from a Taurus revolver, the Model 990 Tracker® looks to revolutionize the way people look at rimfire revolvers.
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 International 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 firearm platforms – 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 now seeks to bolster their lineup with the addition of their new Taurus Model 990 Tracker®, a revolutionary new design in the Tracker® Series that packs an unprecedented nine-shot cylinder into a large-frame revolver suitable for plinking, varmint hunting and much, much more. Moreover, each Model 990 Tracker® is jam packed with practical features that make it truly worth your consideration.
The Taurus Model 990 Tracker® features a 6 1/2 inch barrel that is joined by an overall length of 10 3/4 inches. Its matte stainless construction gives the revolver a weight of 38 ounces, which should prove manageable for most shooters considering the extremely low recoil of the .22 LR rimfire cartridge. As one would expect, the Taurus Model 990 Tracker® also shares all of the features normally associated with a Taurus revolver, including the ergonomic rubber grip, the internal security system and the transfer bar mechanism. Other features include the aforementioned matte stainless finish for protection against rust and corrosion, an adjustable rear sight alongside a fixed front sight and a ventilated rib that runs alongside that top of the barrel and offers the option of a scope mount base. As noted, the Model 990 Tracker® utilizes a nine-shot cylinder that is chambered for the .22 LR rimfire cartridge.
Best of all, the Taurus Model 990 Tracker® 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.
