Made by Brazilian firearms manufacturer Taurus International, the Original Raging Bulls are among America's favorite hunting handguns. The Model 454's dual lock-up cylinder provides stability under extreme chamber pressures. Factory tuned porting and a gas expansion chamber combine with a cushioned insert grip to make shooting comfort a reality. Taurus revolvers all feature the Taurus Security System, which provides instant-ready defense with built-in ability to secure your pistol and make it inoperable at the turn of a key. When the Security System is engaged, the pistol can not be fired or cocked and the gun's manual safety cannot be disengaged. The transfer bar mechanism prevents the hammer from striking the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully to the rear. This double-action revolver features an 8-1/2" ported barrel, a ventilated rib, a ramped front sight, an adjustable rear sight, and rubber grips. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
