Interesting. Wonder if it's from the old Taurus custom shop.

(What, you didn't know Taurus once had a custom shop? Read up. https://www.jackweigand.com/taurus44.html, https://www.taurusarmed.net/threads/...y-pack.137860/ )

Great looking piece you have there.
431s are fine revolvers.

Hope it works. It is, after all, a Taurus. Good luck.

Our resident gunzine writer of the day said he could get T&E Taurus Custom revolvers in .45 and 9mm for moon clip loading. Would a friend and I like to shoot them in IDPA, no doubt to flesh out his article? You bet. Nothing ever showed up, though.
