Judge Ultralite

The Taurus Judge Ultralite is a large-frame revolver chambered for .45 Colt or .410. Taurus says its revolver is properly named the “Judge” because it is the gun most judges choose to conceal under their robes while in court. And, it fires the .45 Colt cartridge and .410 shell, which are ideal for close range shooting or self-defense situations.

The Ultralite is about 2″ longer than the standard Judge, but weighs less because it’s made of alloy steel.

The Judge’s features include Taurus’s Ribber Grip (ribbed rubber), Taurus’s lock safety that disables the gun with the turn of a key, fixed sights with a fiber optic front sight that’s brightly colored and easy to see, it is hammer fired and shooters can set the action for a long pull (double-action) or short pull (single-action). Also, it uses a transfer bar, so the hammer strikes a flat bar that presses the firing pin instead of the hammer striking the firing pin directly.

Optional features include Crimson Trace lasergrips, which activates when a shooter wraps a hand around the grip (add about $320).

Taurus recommends the Judge for self-defense.
