Taurus took their award-winning, revolutionary Judge and upgraded it, making it part of their hand-fitted line of Executive Grade models. Each Judge Executive Grade is assembled by hand in a separate room by a team of specially trained gunsmiths, ensuring that the fit and finish are exquisite.

The frame is stainless steel that is hand polished to a satin finish. The action is hand-tuned, resulting in a smooth double-action trigger pull, perfect for rapid shots. The single-action trigger releases with a crisp, clean break for when you need to dial up the precision a bit.

Accuracy benefits from the presentation-grade, Altamont, walnut wood grips, which fit comfortably in the hand while aiding recoil control.

The Judge’s cylinder comes fluted and bored with a five-round capacity and a knurled ejector rod for quick reloading.

The weapon features a hand-polished satin stainless steel 3” barrel and a dovetailed front sight with a brass highlight. The rear sight is a square notch formed in the gun’s top strap, and a target-style hammer with knurling for solid engagement is also included.
