    Very nice looking.
    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    Looks really nice I just have never seen one.
    Taurus did a brief production run of color case hardened 454 Raging Bulls. So far I found three 45 Colts that Taurus did this to as well. The other two are a 4 inch Tracker and an 8 inch Raging Bull. The serial numbers have an "X" stamped at the end.

    One thing I found interesting is that the 450 was never offered blued. The case hardening is really unique but the bluing on the cylinder and barrel is second to none! The bluing is so shiny it's hard to photograph lol.

    Boy this is interesting. If the 450 was only offered in a Stainless Steel frame how hard was it to case harden? One does not normally case harden Stainless Steel.

    I've had the feeling for a long time that Taurus stainless steel is not really stainless steel. Just a matte stainless finish.


    Obviously with cooper's revolver a "gun guy" must have gotten some momentary power at Taurus. He's obviously been replaced.

    My theory is they stole a blued model 445 and reamed the barrel and cylinder and case hardened the frame.
