    Is the barrel rifled? Will it shoot .45 Colt as well as .410?

    Yes, it's rifled, and it will shoot .45LC. It also shoots .44-40. The website is somewhat less than impressive, but the link is here. They start with the fourth one down.

    I could see it being useful for hunting or general outdoor work. I don't really see much application for defense, but I suppose anything that goes bang will work just fine for most situations. I certainly wouldn't mind having one, if only for the "neato" factor.

    Why not just get a Taurus .41 magnum and call it even?

    I wonder why they made it a five shot. Do they actually expect someone to try to conceal it?

    I've shot a .410 revolver. Lotsa fun...
    I don't recall the maker but I believe it was called the 'Thunder 5' or something to that effect. It had a separate cylinder for .45 LC.

    I seriously doubt it will shoot a .44-40. A .43 caliber bullet rattling down a .45 caliber bore would make for very poor accuracy.

    Doubt it shoots 44-40 but probably 454. Though if you put a 454 in there you might not like the result.

    Being a gun snob, I have never owned a Taurus, but I think this is one I really need to consider.

    that would be the perfect snake gun for around here. we've been getting some rattlers passing thru because a development is going in up the road.

    For those of you have the ability to search, do a search and you'll see we've been discussing this revolver for about eight months now.

    Taurus is indeed touting that it will fire .410, .45 Colt and .44-40. :scrutiny:

    I'm more worried about that .44-40 case splitting in the .45 chamber. :uhoh:

    And they will all be rifled. To make one smoothbore would be highly unlawful. Remember a smoothbore has to have a barrel of at least 18" and an overall length of 26" or it becomes a sawed off shotgun and subject to the National Firearms Act of 1934.

    Hmm, wonder if they could just make it a very shallow 1-in-25878 inch twist.

    I was thinking about S&W 686, but this taurus sounds better(more power)gotta love it with a lifetime warranty. Right now I can't afford both. What do you guys think?

    I also have a Taurus in .38Special/.357Mag and I love it. It's a great, accurate pistol, and the only revolver I need own.
