Circuit Judge

Rossi Circuit Judge rifle

The Rossi Circuit Judge is an interesting rifle/shotgun hybrid, but even more interesting it is a carbine version of the Taurus Judge, a very popular self defense revolver. The Rossi Circuit Judge is chambered in .410 or .45 Colt.

The company Rossi started in 1889, but Taurus currently manufactures the Rossi brand. Its Circuit Judge is hammer fired and has a hardwood stock.

It uses a short 18.5″ barrel available with either a smooth bore or rifled bore. It’s capable of firing .410 magnum shells as well as standard .410 shotshells and .45 Colt. It has a yoke detent system, which is a spring loaded latch attached to the yoke (or arm) of the cylinder.

It ensures the cylinder is firmly secured within the frame, which is beneficial when alternating from heavy to light loads. Its action uses a transfer bar system where the hammer strikes a flat piece of metal that presses the firing pin instead of directly on the firing pin.

It has fiber optic sights, which are brightly colored and easy to see. And, it uses the Taurus Security System, which disables the gun with the turn of a key.

Rossi recommends its Circuit Judge for hunting or leisure shooting.
