Miami, FL – Taurus, manufacturer of quality handguns for hunting, self-defense, and competition, has announced that the award-winning Raging Hunter revolver is now shipping to dealers nationwide. Handgun models arriving at retailers just in time for the summer shoot-and-tune season include the Raging Hunter .44 Magnum and the new Raging Hunter .357 Magnum.
Following on the heels of the Taurus Raging Hunter receiving the 2018 American Hunter Handgun of the Year Golden Bullseye Award for its reliability, innovative design, and value, Taurus has expanded the Raging Hunter lineup by adding a .357 Magnum. In addition to this new chambering option, both the .44 Magnum and .357 Magnum models are now available in three barrel lengths—8.375-, 6.25-, and 5.125-inch.
Taurus developed the Raging Hunter as a premiere big-bore revolver intended for big-game hunting. To mitigate recoil and ensure fast target reacquisition on follow-up shots, the Raging Hunter features a unique barrel configuration with factory-tuned porting and a gas expansion chamber to reduce muzzle rise. The sleeved barrel is secured in an aluminum housing to reduce carry weight and to provide optimal balance with any barrel length. Shooting comfort is further enhanced by the Raging Hunter's rubber grip with cushioned inserts. Finally, a Picatinny top rail combines with an adjustable rear and fixed front sight system to give hunters the option of optic-assisted or open-sight shooting.
Available in two color schemes—matte black or matte black and stainless—these spurred hammer DA/SA big-bore revolvers offer 6-round capacity in the .44 Magnum and 7-rounds in the .357 Magnum.
With full dealer shipment now in progress, consumers can visit their local retailer to see the Raging Hunter models first-hand or to order their preferred model.
