    Not sure if i ever got the 410/45 pistol thing and 410 lever guns have been around. Nice looking though.

    Hmm, I'm told in the bad old days that Remington made a 'revolving' 28 gauge muzzle loading shotgun (long arm) based on the revolver action. Maybe this is just a modernization of that concept?

    Could be an interesting concept if the 45 LC exhibits any degree of accuracy at any distance. Be nice to get some real range reports.

    Colt made a revolving shotgun long ago and maybe others that i don't recal. There is a russian company that makes them up to 12gauge but they start at like 10K+ I forget their name.

    I'd buy one of these in a heartbeat just cause lol. I am curious about how they are dealing with the blast from the cylinder gap. It could be a safety issue for a lot of people that aren't aware, but I would assume they've found a way around that. Maybe we will get more pictures soon!

    I'm gonna keep an eye on Michael Bane if he gets his hands on one I'm sure he'll let us know all about it lol

    Whatever will they think of next?

    I'm a bit confused on the corporate structure. Is this gun from the part of Rossi owned by Taurus? If not, the use of the word Judge in the name could raise some dander in the Taurus world.

    There's a business relationship between Rossi & Taurus.

    Not just a Circuit Court Judge, but a Raging Judge too, in .454 that will also take .410/.45C.

    Did you miss the posts above saying that Rossi and Taurus are closely related?

    Not to mention that their websites look damn near exactly the same and the address for Taurus customer service on 16175 NW 49 Avenue, Miami, FL 33014, seems to near Rossi customer service address at 16175 NW 49 Avenue, Miami, FL 33014. Do you think they'll have to walk across the hall to deliver the injunction or just meet up by the water cooler. :)

    Here's a nightmare scenario: You're walking along in the woods with your Rossi Circuit Court Judge. An angry bear steps put from behind the next tree! Raise the weapon, squeeze the trigger and OOPS! There's a load of birdshot in the next chamber! Let's hope it's double action!

    Still, I think I want one. Could they use the same principle for a .22LR/.22WMR/.223 with replaceable cylinders? That would be cool.

    That is the silliest, most useless gun I am now preparing to buy.

    Not so fast. Gunblast has a picture of a Pony Express revolver carbine. You need to do some comparison shopping.

    Speaking of silly, I want the BFR in 30-30. I don't know if I want to shoot it much but I feel I should have it.

    Taurus Judge Revolving Rifle

    [CORRECTION: This is a ROSSI Judge, not a Taurus]

    All I know about it is what you see here:

    http://www.rossiusa.com/2010newcatalog/?catalog_page=5

    Assuming they found some clever way to prevent the cylinder gap from burning your arm, I want one.

    I really want one in .357...

    This basic approach - assuming it works - could provide the basis of an excellent home defense weapon, too. A smaller, lighter version in 38/357 would offer incredibly simple operation, effective ballistics, light weight, and low recoil in a mechanically obvious platform. It'd be perfect for people who need a gun, but aren't really gun hobbyists.

    Not bad, but WHY the long barrel? This of all guns is *screaming* for 16" bbl.

    I assume it's rifled, correct?

    GREAT wifey/girlfriend home defense arm - very little recoil, and true "no-brainer" operation - just point and pull the trigger, honey. So agreed on that count. Yeah, .357 is ok, but .45 colt is even better! Plus the whole point is to also be able to use .410 shotshells. Gimmicky, yes, but it helps to sell them.

    If it's smoothbore, then forget it.

    Yeah, maybe there's a small plate you can't see on the left side to deflect cylinder gap blast. Sure looks like a *tight* cylinder gap in the picture!

    How do you plug it for hunting? According to the law the plug can not be easily removed.

    Then whats the point of offering a smooth bore one as well if the .45LC wont be accurate out of it?
