Taurus introduced a polymer revolver in .38 Special at the 2010 SHOT Show. The “Polymer Protector” is a revolver with a polymer frame and blued steel cylinder and barrel insert. The new Taurus revolver only weighs 18.2 ounces and is rated for +P ammunition.
Streamlined for concealed carry, the hammer is shrouded, but can still be cocked for a single action shot. The grips are polymer, but are wood colored, and actually look good in person.
The front sight is a red fiber optic sight, and the rear is a notch.
I was very impressed with the way this revolver felt in my hand. It was lightweight and pointed naturally for me. I would prefer a DA-only version, but I am still impressed by what Taurus was showing. I look forward to getting one of these onto the range.
