Taurus USA has noticed the increasing popularity in hunting with handguns and announced the new Raging Hunter in response. The Raging Hunter, a .44 Magnum six-shot revolver, is that response.

The striking stainless and blue two-tone finish of the .44 Magnum Raging Hunter is enough to grab the attention of any big-bore aficionado, but the optics-ready Picatinny rail and angular barrel design will seal the deal. It is also available in a matte blue for those seeking a more classic look.

The unique barrel system incorporates a steel sleeve that is inserted into an aluminum housing that cuts down on the overall weight, making this a well-balanced hunting sidearm. The exclusive cushioned insert grips on the Raging Series large frame revolvers makes shooting them comfortable and controllable. Also aiding in recoil management is the unique placement of the factory-tuned porting and gas expansion chamber that is designed to disperse gases directionally reducing muzzle lift and delivering quicker target acquisition. This built-to-last revolver is a fun and effective alternative for short to medium range hunting scenarios.
