Taurus International Manufacturing, Inc. has an 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 in 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 and is now one of the largest manufacturers of small arms in the world.
Years ago, Taurus International introduced the Taurus Judge, a multi-caliber revolver with a 5-cartridge cylinder that was marketed for personal protection and home defense. It was capable of firing both .410 bore shotshells and .45 Colt cartridges. Firearms enthusiasts everywhere loved it, making it the company's top-selling firearm. Seemingly unsatisfied, Taurus International introduced the Taurus Raging Judge Magnum in 2010. Building on the foundation of the Taurus Judge, the Raging Judge Magnum adds not only a higher capacity cylinder but also the option of chambering and firing the .454 Casull cartridge – a powerful cartridge capable of producing nearly 2,000 foot-pounds of energy. Talk about a heavy-hitter.
The Taurus Raging Judge Magnum features a 6.5-inch barrel and an overall length of 13.6 inches. It truly is a heavyweight, weighing in at a hefty 73 ounces – over 4.5 pounds. In addition to sharing all the features normally associated with a Taurus revolver, like the ergonomic rubber grip, internal security system and transfer bar mechanism, the Raging Judge Magnum shares all the features typical of a revolver in the "Raging" series, including the cushioned red grip insert and a dual lockup cylinder. As Taurus International is never a company to skimp, the revolver also boasts some other nice features like its high visibility fiber-optic front sight and an extended ejector rod, which provides for positive extraction. These features are joined by the presence of a ventilated rib that runs alongside that top of the barrel and offers the option of a scope mount base.
If the Taurus Judge offers a one-two punch, the Taurus Raging Judge Magnum offers a one-two-three punch with its added features – all of which are well deserving of your hard earned cash. Consider this revolver for:
- Personal protection
- Home defense
- Handgun hunting
- Much more…
