Extremely comfortable to fire and easy to control, the Tracker Series continues to grow in popularity thanks to its high level of accuracy, rock-solid performance and near-indestructible construction. Taurus factory-tuned porting reduces recoil and makes shooting comfort a reality. The transfer bar mechanism prevents the hammer from striking the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully to the rear. The Taurus family of 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. Calibered for inexpensive .22 LR cartridges, the 970 offers a 7-shot cylinder, providing space for one more round than most revolvers. This revolver features rubber grips and adjustable target sights. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
