I just picked up one of my grail guns: a model 455 revolver in .45ACP and with a 6.5-inch barrel. I've been looking for one of these for a good deal for maybe 2 or 3 years now. The serial says it was made in 2004. It looks to be in excellent condition. I'm just glad somebody was looking for Christmas money. :) Now she's mine.

I tried to find a past thread on the 455, but had to got back 2 or 3 years to see any posts on it, so I thought I'd start a new one. I guess there hasn't been much talk on this model lately. I think I'm going to love this gun. I hope to be it's last owner--at least until I'm no longer breathing. Ah, it feels good to finally have one. I've bid on many on GunBroker, but always bow out when the price get too high. I got it for $400, and it included an aftermarket box, extra moon clips, and a few rounds. It also looks like it has aftermarket grips--originals not included and no Taurus box. I think I did good.

Wow nice collection! Is that a 4 inch 460 and 2 inch 450 tracker I see or are they 45 acp ? The Only ones I have ever regretted letting (450 and 460)

I am fan of multipurpose weapons and opted for the ultra lite PD and 6 in 2 1/2 judge. Still those two were sexy. Still my taurus gaucho sundance 5 inch is the most accurate yet.

I am regretting letting them go. I am downsizing calibers once and for all.

9 mm. Taurus 905, 992 and the circuit judge 22lr / 22 mag.

I can't seem to find the heart to let.my 71 marlin 39d go yet. I want to make sure the circuit judge runs flawlessly first.

My safe has more room than I have seen in years and the guns I have chosen are seeing allot of range time.

I think the 4-inch revolver you're referring to is a 608 8-shot .357. I don't have a 460 or a 450. I updated my original photo post with a list of models, if you want to go back and check that out.
