The Taurus 17 revolver is designed to handle the newest, hottest varmint cartridge, the .17 HMR caliber. This flat-shooting, high-velocity round was designed for rifles, but the Model 17 handles it with total ease. The rugged and durable, small-framed 17 is a practical choice for backpacks and tackle boxes. Its snub-nosed design provides short distance accuracy and the enclosed-hammer design means hammer snags are a thing of the past. The Taurus family of revolvers all feature the Taurus Security System, which provides instant-ready defense with the built-in ability to secure your firearm and make it inoperable at the turn of a key. This double-action revolver features adjustable target sights and rubber grips. Its grips and metal are in good condition and its bore is in very good condition.
