Default Taurus 45 acp revolver

You guys remember the Taurus 45 acp stainless revolver with the 'Ribber' grips? They are discontinued (mfg 2002 to 2004) but I wouldn't mind picking up one of the 6.5 inch models but don't ever see them available. I believe full retail was $504.00 when new and most used ones are running $500.00 or higher used and I think they are selling for that, aahhh the good old supply and demand thing. They were called the Tracker 455?

Though I have never owned a Taurus, the Tracker looks like a interesting choice. I like the concept of a .45 ACP revolver, especially if a guy has 1911’s. Have a S&W model 22 which is relatively light for a steel N frame. Wouldn't mind another .45 acp wheel gun.

Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.

Back when they came out I saw 6 inch Taurus 455 Tracker in 45 acp and fell in love with it but couldn't afford it at the time, and now they cost more used than they did when they were new. My S&W 17-4 is a neat gun to shoot.

Didn’t realize Taurus even made this model till your post. Looks like a neat gun. I’d like one. A big 10 4 with the model 17!

Here it is, not too bad of a target (25 yds) with cataracts in my right eye, surgery is on the 29th.






Two shots cut the same hole on the right, wish I could have kept them all that close, ha, don't we all. LOL.

I have the 45 LC version with a 2" barrel and fixed sights. After getting the fixed sights regulated and running several thousand rounds through it I would say it's has as smooth a trigger and is as accurate as any SW revolver I've owned. Took a lot of work though. Barrel also needed a lot of rounds before it smoothed up and stopped leading. It's a joy to shoot double action with the nice smooth trigger pull.

If I had the longer barrel version I'd be tempted to cut it back to 3"-4" and attach a big dot sight up front. That would also get rid of the ports which I do not prefer.

All of my favorite creatures have white bottoms.

Wish I had one in 45 Colt with the 6.5 inch barrel. The ports don't bother me with the 45 acp.
