With its impressive 8-shot cylinder, the Taurus 608 packs up to eight rounds of 357 Magnum or 38 Special +P ammo. Hammer forged for tough performance and confidence-boosting accuracy, this dependable decision-maker comes with a hand-fitted action, and a clean, crisp trigger right out of the box.
TAURUS 608 may look like your standard revolver, but there’s more than meets the eye. The Brazilian company was looking for a response to the Smith and Wesson Model 686 when it developed the 608. Later we’ll discuss how these two match up. Released in 1997, this full body revolver is sure to impress even the most experienced shooter.
Taurus hooked the TAURUS 608 up with a full sized stainless frame and extremely durable components to ensure its longevity and performance. The hammer-forged design and hand-fitted actions guarantee that the incredible 608 will never disappoint. Looking at the comfortable, form-fitting rubber grip and the 4” ported barrel, this Taurus is excellent from end to end.
Arguably the most impressive feature of the TAURUS 608, the Taurus Security System, is not to be overlooked. When the Security System is engaged, the Taurus’ manual safety can’t be disengaged and the gun can’t be cocked or fired. As an added plus, this specialised safety mechanism is incorporated into the firearm and can’t be lost.
The TAURUS 608 is also equipped with a manual transfer bar safety. This mechanism effectively stops the hammer from striking the firing pin unless the trigger is fully engaged.
