    Have You Seen the Judge in Rifle Form?

    Wow! Just got the NRA e-newsletter and took the link to Taurus. the Judge is now a long-barreled carbine version with 18" barrel! Couldn't find it on Taurus web site yet, but it would make a great HD weapon IMHO.

    It's at the Rossi site, www.rossiusa.com because that's who's producing it.

    No, it is not out yet and it may be a few months before it gets out there.

    Re: Have You Seen the Judge in Rifle Form?

    Nothng on that yet. There is a smooth bore version and a rifled barrel version.

    One is a .410 smooth bore and the other is a with the rifled barrel are going to odd ducks in my opinion.

    .410 shotguns are good for specialist shooters who know how to get the best out of a.410 gauge to begin with. The 28 gauge does better on birds, is more user friendly as far as shotguns go. Except for certain competitions the .410 is used, but not for hunting that much.

    The rifled barrel will most likely mess up the patterns. The rifiling will spin the shot while it is in the long barrel rather than let the smooth bore leave the shot as is. Yes, there is more to it then that, but not much. Chokes help shot a bit as well. Granted time and experimentation will tell, but I'd like to see the data first. Shot patterns from a rotating cylinder ought to be interesting to see what develops there.

    Maybe the idea is to own two or those. One for shotgun applications and the other for shooting .45 Colt from for the most part.

    I think that I'll stick with my idea to get a Rossi lever carbine in .357 magnum and leave it at that.

    I could be wrong, but time will tell. I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade. Just that rifled barrels on a shotgun normally do no belong.

    The Rossi 92 lever action can do more for the .45 Colt with full riflling than the shallow rifling in the Circuit Judge. More rounds can be carried in the magazine as well.

    Re: Have You Seen the Judge in Rifle Form?

    I agree with what you said Quicks draw,

    For me it is just because it looks cool. I am lucky to pretty much have all the guns I need, so now I mainly purchase to resale for profit or just for fun.

    Also helps that I love .410 and already own 4 of them, that's why I really want the smooth bore, pretty cool that it will be threaded for chokes.
    Oh and thanks for the prices.

    Hey, fun factor or just because if you can is enough for any gun.

    Glad to be of service. I knew there were .410 aficianados out there and for them the .410 does all they want it to. That's better than good enough.

    Re: Have You Seen the Judge in Rifle Form?

    I used a 410 bolt action to rabbit hunt when I was a kid I loved it. It got the job done and added a little skill level to it.

    It was an old gun and my dad had two of them,I have no idea who made them. But they worked great.

    Re: Have You Seen the Judge in Rifle Form?

    Can these be used in any type of cowboy action shooting maybe? I know they used to make revolver "carbines" way back when but I don't know jack about cowboy shooting. It certainly the coolest looking .410 shotgun I've seen and that alone would sell it to me if I was in the market for purely a .410 shotgun

    Re: Have You Seen the Judge in Rifle Form?

    Here's a puzzler though: the NRA e-mail newsletter said the barrel was "back-bored".

    I've been around a long time, but have not heard this term. Does that mean the rifling does not go from forcing cone right through to the muzzle? Maybe some smooth-bored section in there?

    Anyone know what this means?
