Playing off the success of earlier Judge revolvers, Taurus introduced the tactical Judge at the 2009 SHOT Show. The Taurus 4510TKR-SSR and -BR offer a 3″ ported barrel Judge with a Picatinny rail for lasers and lights.
The new Judge chambers five .45 Colt cartridges or .410 (2.5″) shotshells. Standard on both the blued and stainless models are the red fiber optic front sight, fixed rear notch, and the Taurus Ribber grips.
Taurus reps said “around $500″ for the retail price on this new Judge.
The Taurus Judge SSR Ported has a yoke detent and the famous Ribber Grip that is supposed to absorb more recoil than other kinds of polymer stocks. The ported barrel is supposed to reduce felt recoil when shooting this gun.
