This from Taurus this AM...I'm excited because one of my old Taurus 5-shot .44 Specials is one of the most accurate .44 Specials I own (and, yes, I own a bunch!). I still don't like .40s, but I will be buying the .,44 Special!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Taurus Introduces New Large Caliber, Lightweight Revolvers
MIAMI – The new Taurus® 405 and 445 revolvers are aggressive wheel-guns that deliver superior accuracy and stopping power without the heft or bulk of most large caliber revolvers. These 5-shot revolvers are available in blue or matte stainless finish with the Taurus Ribber Grip® that reduces felt recoil.
The 445 is chambered in .44 Special and features an Ultra-Lite® frame that weighs only 22 ounces. The revolver’s barrel measures 2 inches, with an overall length of 7 inches. The 405, Taurus’ first .40 S&W revolver, features a lightweight frame that weighs just 29 ounces and includes stellar clips. The revolver’s barrel measures 2 inches, with an overall length of 7 inches. Like all Taurus firearms the 405 and 445 come standard with the unique onboard Taurus Security System® that allows users to securely lock the gun using an inconspicuous key-lock. MSRP $452 - $514.
