    Taurus 405 .40 S&W

    Have any of you guys seen or handled the new Taurus 405 (.40 S&W)? I have decided I am going to trade my 851 for one. It seems like holsters for most of the '85' series revolvers should still work. My dealer says he can get one for $339, so I definitely think I am going to order one...
    HE thinks, therefore I am! <><

    Re: Taurus 405 .40 S&W

    I have an old prototype M405 that is built on the compact frame platform. It will be interesting to see if that come out built on the small frame (if they come out at all), the stellar clips probably won't work in mine if they do go with the small frame (which would make more sense, ala' the M905). That price sounds great!

    The 405 is available? That is awesome, and so is that price. I don't think it will be the size of an 85, though. Like Cooper said, it will be the compact frame, like the 617 and 445.

    RevolverFan,
    Did your guy say he could actually GET one or that was the price he could get it for? My LGS quoted me prices for the 405 and 445, which are about the same as you posted, but said their distributors had none in stock. I was just wondering if you had better info than I could get.

    Re: Taurus 405 .40 S&W

    Good question. It might be just the price he can get it for. He did say that he has a 20+ waiting list for some of the more popular CC pistols and revolvers out there... I better call and get on the list! When I find out, will let y'all know...

    Re: Taurus 405 .40 S&W

    Just ordered a M405B a couple of hours ago. I will let you all know when it gets here. By the way, it seems that Taurus must have beefed the 405 up a bit compared to the 905. The catalog says that the 905 weighs 22 ounces, the 405 -- 29 ounces. Can't wait to get it and shoot it!

    Where did you order it from? Last I spoke to Taurus International, the M405 was not being released until the 3rd quarter at the earliest.

    Re: Taurus 405 .40 S&W

    BTW, my LGS quoted me the following prices:
    405B2 $339.00
    405SS2 $369.00
    445B2 $355.00
    445SS2 $379.00
    As far as I know, they are not even taking orders. Keep us posted, RevolverFan!

    Re: Taurus 405 .40 S&W

    As there wasn't a release date in the Taurus catalog, and my dealer had an order available status, I simply ordered one. I had not heard about a later in the year kind of thing. I am sure they will call me soon and let me know what is what. Who knows, maybe I will get one soon! I will post picks and info as soon as I know something...

    I sure hope this pans out. That would be great news for all of us who want one of these snubbies.
