Product Summary

Taurus took the lightest version of the Public Defender and made it even lighter with their incredible Ultra-Lite aluminum frame. This Public Defender weighs a mere 20.7 ounces, yet still delivers the devastating firepower that makes its brothers so famous. It's a remarkable combo gun in the body of a small frame revolver. The exclusive Taurus ergonomic, shock-absorbing grip design provides a firm grip under virtually all shooting conditions. An extended ejector rod makes positive extraction of fired cases possible. 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. The transfer bar mechanism prevents the hammer from striking the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully to the rear and the fiber-optic sight offers the shooter the highly visible dot.
