SHOT Show 2018 – The Taurus line of long-barrel big-bore revolvers is enhanced this year by the launch of the new all-black or bi-tone Taurus Raging Hunter .44 Magnum model, featuring a Picatinny railed 8.3-inch barrel
Following the global success of its long-established Raging Bull line of competition and hunting revolvers, new for 2018 at the NSSF SHOT Show in Las Vegas Taurus introduces a new big-bore, long-barrel revolver dubbed the Raging Hunter.
The Taurus Raging Hunter is one majestic revolver, feeding through a six-shots cylinder and chambered in .44 Magnum. A striking matte black or stainless-and-blue two-tone finish is enough to grab the attention of any big-bore aficionado, but the optics-ready Picatinny rail and angular barrel design will seal the deal. The unique barrel system incorporates a steel sleeve that is inserted into an aluminum housing that cuts down on the overall weight, making this a well-balanced hunting sidearm.
The exclusive cushioned insert grips on the Raging Series large frame revolvers makes shooting them comfortable and controllable. Also aiding in recoil management is the unique placement of the factory-tuned porting and gas expansion chamber that is designed to disperse gases directionally – reducing muzzle lift and delivering quicker target acquisition.
The Taurus Raging Hunter double-action revolver is 14.1" (35,8 cm) long overall and features an 8.357" (21 cm approx.) barrel; featuring a fixed front sight and an adjustable rear sight, it weighs at 55 ounces (1,55 kg) and comes with a transfer bar safety and with the patented Taurus Security Systyem. This built-to-last revolver is a fun and effective alternative for short to medium range hunting scenarios.
