The Protector Polymer in .38 Special +P blends a unique design with modern updates that weighs in at a scant 18.2 ounces. This smart little number draws quickly with a full spur hammer. Just like its cousins, it's a best buy in its size, now in a cool set-up with Ribber rubber grips and a red fiber-optic front sight. A transfer bar mechanism prevents the hammer from striking the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully to the rear and the Taurus Security System consists of a keyed, quarter-turn style socket-head screw which can be set to prevent the hammer from pivoting back into the frame, thus rendering the weapon inoperative. This revolver features a fiber-optic front sight and comes with the original factory box. Its grips and metal are in good condition and its bore in very good condition.
