No. Taurus did not make these in .44 Special. The models 441 or 431 were. These were 5 shot only cylinders. .44 Specials can be shot from .44 magnums in complete safety the same way .38 Specials can be fired out of .357 magnums. This does leave an accumulation of carbon and grit residue in the cylinder chambers that needs to be removed after every shooting session. The Taurus model 445 was also a 5 shot .44 Special model. Has a 2 inch barrel. No longer made. Neither are the models 442 or 431.
