For years, law enforcement professionals have asked Taurus to produce a small, lightweight revolver chambered for the popular 9mm and .45 ACP. This allows the capability to cross-carry a pistol and a revolver with only one caliber of ammunition. The Taurus family of revolvers all feature the Taurus Security System, which provides instant-ready defense with the built-in ability to secure your handgun and make it inoperable at the turn of a key. The transfer bar mechanism prevents the hammer from striking the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully to the rear. This revolver features recoil-dampening rubber grips, a ramped front sight, and a fixed rear groove and comes with the original factory hard case. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
