as what? a novelty? Idk. I think shotgun revolvers are retarded. get a .500, .460, .454, or .44mag etc if you want a powerful revolver. Skip all this .410 nonsense.

9mm, I think you have to drop the 2 and just make it an 8 gauge to fit the pistol the lady is holding in your picture.

That's assuming that one off actually worked? or it or was just a mock up/concept. Lots of companies bring non functioning concepts or prototypes to judge interest or create buzz. It was never produced as a functioning firearm AFAIK. ATF canned it and Taurus forgot it. If they made a rifle version u could chop that up into a AOW or something perhaps

Well know I know that I will buy raging judge magnum with custom unfluted cylinder and ivory grips. Thanks and I agree that smoothbore revolvers are retarded.

It would be a novelty I would want to own, but the ATF nixed production for the US.

We don't know if the BATFE axed it, or if it was due to safety concerns, or what.

I almost wonder if the 28 gauge Judge was just a diversion to draw attention from S&W's Governor at the 2011 shot show.

If the 28 gauge Rossi Circuit Judge is ever released, you could SBS one.

Not to mntion BATF restricted as a short barreled shotgun. But revolvers chambered for 45 Cot, with rifled barrels, and cylinders long enough to accept 410 shotshells are considered handguns, and not restricted. Also lots of fun to shoot in addition to being good for up close SD.

Yeah, I agree that it is lots of fun to shoot. Maybe you guys know where could I get unfluted cylinder for it? And titanium nitride plating.

if it was made as a muzzleloading revolver, it MIGHT BE LEGAL TO IMPORT> but as its a cartridge gun, it cant be over .50 caliber.

If no one wants to answer, that's life.

As far as revolvers firing shotgun shells, I think some states have laws against them , even though the Feds don't. CA,IIRC - but someone might know precisely.

odds are your not gonna find a Raging judge cylinder blank.

First most people don't have custom work done on taurus like S&W, Colt or even Ruger.

Also the Raging Judge cylinder isn't exactly a normal shape so you couldn't use say an N-Frame if you needed. Honestly if you want to spend all this money modifying a Raging judge just get a XVR from smith its probably a 100x the gun as well.

"We don't know if the BATFE axed it, or if it was due to safety concerns, or what."

Actually, at the time, there were links shares indicating that the ATF had indeed informed them that the firearm was in violation. I did not copy them, but I saw them at that time.

Oh my goodness you spoiled child. Your last statement- "I need answers."



Too bad you did not hear what you wanted to hear. I once had a boss like that.

Go to the manufacturer to get an answer. You should of done that in the very beginning if you really needed an answer, and a correct answer. How do you think we should know since we do not work for Taurus. I would like to know your thought process of asking a forum this question if you really needed an answer. We could of giving you an answer and what good would it of been if Taurus did not agree.

You catch my drift.
