Taurus is raising the bar in 2023 with a series of introductions under the company's “Executive Grade” banner, and one such model is sure to impress. Meet the all-new Taurus USA Judge Executive Grade. Inspired by the company’s best-selling Model 856 wheelgun, the new Judge Executive Grade comes with custom touches throughout, including presentation-grade Altamont walnut stocks and a hand-fit action, and the gun is chambered for .45 Colt/.410 bore that makes for an everyday carry gun to be proud of.
The Taurus Judge Executive Grade comes in-the-white with a hand-polished frame, barrel and cylinder assemblies that feature a low-glare satin finish. Like its Model 856 progenitor, you’ll get that EDC-ready DA/SA action. The gun’s left-side mounted, swing-out cylinder will come fluted and bored for a five-round capacity. You’ll find Taurus included a knurled ejector rod for quick reloading.
Fitted with a stainless steel, 3” barrel, which is topped with a dovetailed front sight featuring a classic-looking brass highlight, this latest Judge is set up on the Judge 2.5” frame size, so loads are restricted to .45 Colt and 2.5” .410 bore shotshells. The rear sight is formed in the gun’s top strap and is a square notch. A target-style hammer with knurling for purchase is also included.
Overall length for the new Taurus Judge Executive Grade is measured at 9.5”, and its overall width comes to 1.5”. Weight tips the scale at 36 ozs., empty. MSRP is $950. To learn all about the Taurus Judge line of defensive and hunting-centric wheelguns, visit taurususa.com.
