The Taurus Judge Magnum is capable of chambering both .41 gauge 2.5″ or 3″ shotshells and 45 Colt ammunition. This amazing combo is ideal for short distances where most altercations occur, or longer distances with the 45 Colt ammo. Taurus has finely tuned the rifling to spread the shot pattern at close quarters or to guide the .45 caliber bullet to the target. This model has a 3″ barrel with a fiber optic front sight and fixed rear. It has a matte stainless steel metal finish and a black Ribber grip.
