    That's a good-looking revolver.

    Red Cent, that is just about 10 miles from my house. The 450 is not a LW, but still a neat gun.

    I had a 415T, the ported titanium .41 mag model back in 2002 or so when they came out. Recoil was heavy with 210gr. loads. Definitely worse than a Scandium .357 with full power ammo. It developed timing problems and I dumped it for cheap because of that. At the time Taurus customer service didn't have the greatest track record on fixing guns (or even returning them back to their owners). I think the manual did specify a max of 160gr. ammo though..

    I'm not a big Taurus fan, I think they make a decent revolver their semi auto's. Now that's another story.

    I'm Jealous. Let me try something here, an old Jedi mind trick.

    You don't want this gun. You want to give this gun to Tom. Go ahead.... put it in the box and send it to him now!

    Congrats !

    I have a Model 731 Taurus in all Titanium for my pocket carry gun. I don't know how many Taurus revolvers were sold in Titanium but they are hard to find. I wouldn't sell mine. It has ran perfect and only is 12 or 13 oz. .32H&R Mag 6 shot, non ported.

    Your big bore should serve you well.

    The concept of large cartridge in small package probably scared most buyers consequently few were sold. This in turn means few guns on secondary market.
    I have shot some .45LC out of short-barrled FA 83 and can say this grand ole cartridge would not be for faint of hart in small relatively light weight carry weapon.
