Brazilian handgun maker Taurus announced this week that their newest Raging Hunter installment, chambered in .454 Casull, is headed to retailers.

The 5-shot Raging Hunter series follows on the heels of the company’s popular Raging Bull line but is lighter due to an aluminum barrel shroud and includes an integrated Picatinny rail. The big wheel gun comes in three barrel lengths– 8.375-, 6.75-, and 5.125-inches inches– for an overall length that runs between 15- and 10.9-inches. Weight varies from 50 to 57 ounces depending on barrel length.

The Raging Hunter line uses an angular barrel design to cut down on overall weight, while its factory-tuned porting and gas expansion chamber reportedly reduces muzzle lift for quicker target acquisition.

Another big difference between the Raging Bull and Raging Hunter series is the latter's top-mounted Picatinny rail which, in addition to the standard adjustable iron sights, gives the user lots of options in the field. (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com)

Other features of the .454 Casull Raging Hunter include a spurred hammer, DA/SA action, transfer bar safety, ported barrel and cushioned grips. In addition to the various barrel lengths, the revolver is also available in two frame colors—matte black or stainless—with matte black barrels and cylinders, producing a myriad of possible configurations for the consumer.

MSRP ranges from $910 to $919.
