Predating the Taurus Judge by more than a decade, the Thunder 5 is a large, five-shot revolver that can hurl either .410 shotgun shells or .45 Long Colt rounds as fast as you can pull the trigger. MIL, Inc took a basic double action revolver design with a rifled barrel, added an ambidextrous manual hammer block safety and fixed sights and made it bigger. Not only can the Thunder 5 be used interchangeably with 3" .410 bore shells or .45 Long Colt, but optional sleeve inserts allow it to fire 9x19mm Parabellum, 38/357, or .38 Super. To tame some of the thunder, the gun comes standard with Pachmayr decelerator grips. Unlike many similar revolvers, the Thunder 5 has a 2-position manual safety that adds an extra level of security. This double-action revolver features a spurred hammer. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
