HI. I'd like to hear from folks who've either OWNED and/or SHOT the Taurus 405 two inch 5 shot revolver in 40 S&W. Excellent gun? Average gun? Poor gun? I've been thinking about a .40 call...started thinking about the Kahr 7 round model, then I thought, well if I'm going that direction, what about a snubbie?
A short while ago Taurus released a new revolver in .40 S&W. The model 405 uses moon clips in order to accommodate this semi-auto round. This is Taurus’s first venture into this type of revolver. The 405’s are slightly smaller than a S&W K frame in size with a two inch barrel. It holds five rounds of 40 caliber ammunition.
Taurus has made its name by producing revolvers that are both economical and innovative. Guns such as the Raging Bull and Judge opened up new potential in revolver design, power and performance. A new revolver shows that Taurus still travels that same path. The 405 is a snubnose chambered for .40 S&W.
