The Taurus Model 44 large frame revolver holds 6 rounds of full-power 44 Magnum loads. This revolver is hammer-forged for tough performance and confidence-boosting accuracy, and it comes with a hand-fitted action and a clean, crisp trigger right out of the box. The Model 44 features a ported barrel that reduces muzzle flip and felt-recoil, the Taurus Security System (TSS), and a transfer bar safety.

So far, I've gone through 1-box of Winchester 240-grain jacketed soft-points (44-mag), and two boxes of 246-grain Specials.
As per past experiences, Bud's did an excellent job shipping it to my FFL.
Okay. The 4-inch barrel length is a bit inaccurate. The rifling is "only" for the first 3-inches, the last inch is roughly, an 'expansion-chamber' for the porting. The 4-ports on each side of the front-sight does reduce felt recoil.
The high visibility, orange florescent front sight was disappointing. It is only a narrow strip of 'sticky-tape' which left the front sight upon cleaning it with Hoppe's. Expect a LOT of residue along the front sight and base from the porting.
It has shown itself to be quite accurate with both the magnum and special loads.
I like the that it is forged steel, rather than a casting.
Overall, I am pleased with it, just wish it were a 'true' 4-inch barrel.
Questions & Answers
Q: I know this sounds silly but the web page and the 360 view indicate this firearm is the M44 6 round (which I hope it is). But the large photo of the revolver is showing the .44 tracker. Which I think is a lighter weight 5 shot revolver. Just want to make sure that you are actually buying the larger M44 gun.
William, Buds often uses the incorrect stock photo. This UPC code is for the Larger M44 - Taurus 44 Double Action Revolver .44 Magnum - 4" Ported Barrel - 6 Rounds - Fixed Front Sight/Adjustable Rear Sight - Rubber Grip - Matte Stainless Steel Finish.
Q: Hello, I have many rounds of +P+ loads from both Buffalo Bore and Underwood. I bought them for a Ruger Redhawk that I had to part with.
With this revolver handle these rounds?
Rodney, the ammo you listed isn't listed as safe with the gun by Buffalo Bore. --------------------See 1 more answer |
Quote from the above linked ammo:
This new load is designed for only certain revolvers that have the cylinder length to handle it. They are as follows; Ruger Red Hawk, Ruger Super Red Hawk, Ruger Super Blackhawk or Vaquero, Freedom Arms Model 83, Taurus Raging Bull, Colt Anaconda and Dan Wesson Revolvers.... --------------------
The M44 is Taurus's old large frame gun. I usually classify it's strength as on the same level as a Smith 629. -------------------
Buffalo Bore has loads that would work about as well (your hit under stress will probably matter more) and will be safer to fire in your revolver. - 305gr hard cast flat nose: http://www.buffalobore.com/index.php...ct_detail&p=49
300gr JFN http://www.buffalobore.com/index.php...ct_detail&p=50 This one says it will have some expansion. -------------------------
It's your choice what you feed your guns but if you damage your gun with overly hot or long loads and try to ship it in for warranty work Taurus may or may not honor the warranty.
Lance, yes Sir. https://www.budsgunshop.com/product_info.php/products_id/86422/hogue+rubber+monogrip+taurus+med%2flg+frame ----- Will Fit Taurus Models: 44, 65, 66, 80, 82, 83, 96, 431, 441, 607, 608, 669, 689.
Q: Went to put this on layaway, and noticed that Buds is charging a NC state tax of $29. I thought that they only had to charge TN state tax.
When did they start charging Nc state tax?
Since the beginning of the year, several states have required us to collect state taxes. In other states, the FFLs are charging the state taxes. This will be changing vary soon and all states wil require us to charge state taxesSee 1 more answer |
Cruz, No. That would be improbable. Call the zoo and get some counseling. Larry Kelly of Magnaport has taken every game animal on the planet, including the Big Five in Africa with a 44 Magnum revolver. So it can be done, but it would take some skill for a great shot.
