Monstrous Power-Packing Revolvers
http://www.trendhunter.com ^ | Published: Feb 1, 2011

Posted on 06/19/2013 3:07:13 PM PDT by virgil283

"This monstrous revolver known as the Raging Judge will have most people shaking in their boots. With a 6.5-inch barrel, high visibility optic fiber sight, a grip-reducing recoil and the ability to fire 28GA shotgun shells, this gun is definitely hardcore. So if you want to blast zombies away and shout all sorts of 80s action movie one-liners, the Raging Judge should help you do it. "

Does it come with the followup carpal tunnel surgery you’ll need if you shoot it?

Feh, let me know when they make one in 10 gauge.

An impractical weapon to say the lease. Some people do things just because they can.

1. Is it just me or does that look like something Yosemite Sam would shoot at Bugs Bunny?
2. ATF said no. Taurus got away with the Judge because they claim it’s a 45 long colt pistol (with rifling and everything) There isn’t a 28 guage pistol round for Taurus to claim this is a pistol.

I think they are somewhat popular in Alaska for those who take walks in Grizzly country.

“There isn’t a 28 guage pistol round for Taurus to claim this is a pistol.”

a grip-reducing recoil

Sounds counter-productive. Anyway...as pointed out above, just because you can does not mean you should.

It was a concept gun. Never sold any due to legal restrictions.

So, Taurus will just have to put it out in their revolving carbine (shotgun?) version.

I agree but I still would sort of like to have one. It would be OK to keep in a pickup. I would load it with hot loaded .45 Colt and keep a box of 28 gauge birdshot and one of buckshot.

It might be heavy enough to use .454 Casull ammo without too much recoil but I probably would use something less powerful.

I would like to posit that the pictured firearm is a Taurus Raging Judge Magnum... capable of shooting a 3” magnum .410 shotgun round, a .45 acp round, and the star of the show- the .454 Casull round. Ballistics of the .454 Casull, will give the shooter a chance to fire a 300 grain bullet down range at approximately 1800 feet a second. It’s credited with dropping the top five big game animals of Africa. I bought the snub nose (2 1/2” barrel) only to learn that it is illegal in California, where I planned to carry it on a hike.

When I was about twelve, things were different then; you could bring your rifle or shotgun to school if you were going to hunt after school, anyway, I made a 12 gauge pistol from an old single shot. I carved a great pistol grip and shortened the barrel to about 9 inches. I held it in a tight grip and when I fired it it flew back and knocked the wind out of me. I tried to use a stronger hold and fired it again. Same result. I took it to school and sold to some kid who thought it was neat. That was in the 40's.

You don't want a 10 gauge pistol.

A .45 Cold cartridge would just rattle down the barrel of a 28 gauge and fall out. It’s got a 0.55” bore.

That would be considered a “destructive device” and would require a tax stamp and about six months of paperwork in order to possess. Taurus did show the thing, but backed on plans to manufacturer it . . .for the U.S. market anyway.

I just realized 28 gauge is not the same as .45. What is it?

Is it possibly a .50 caliber? If it is then you could shoot .5oo Smith and Wesson in it. If it is larger than that, I would not want it.

Thanks, that means there would be no standard pistol ammo for it. That would make it almost worthless to me.

Freudian slip, I bet. I got a hunch that recoil would downright destroy yer grip.

A slug with a slow twist barrel might not be too bad, in a Howdah pistol kind of way.

As a somewhat related matter, why are 28 ga slug rounds so rare?

ATF said no. Taurus got away with the Judge because they claim it’s a 45 long colt pistol (with rifling and everything) There isn’t a 28 gauge pistol round for Taurus to claim this is a pistol.

The problem is the stupid GCA 1968, that says that anything rifle or pistol round over .50 caliber has to be approved by the BATF as especially suited to sporting purposes for it to be legal.

Thus, the bureaucracy at the BATFE has an effective veto on technological innovation such as the Taurus revolver.

The chamber diameter for a 28 gauge has to be a little over .60 caliber. We need to simply do away with the who GCA 1968.

.56-50 Spencer would work. They even make it for Cowboy Action. The price isn’t for the faint at heart.

Yes, but when the Spencer was revived due to “Unforgiven” and Cowboy Action shooting several companies started making ammo. Making it centerfire so it could be reloaded made sense.

It was easy to tell in the video who was going to get hurt and who wasn’t. A couple of shooters knew to let the whole body take the recoil; most didn’t. The cringeworthy ones were those who had a weak, limp-wristed grip on that brute with no experience in evidence.

So the reproductions are centerfire?

Makes sense, like you said rimfire would be very difficult to reload. I guess it would be just about impossible.
