View Full Version : Taurus Judge rifle

I see one of these on the wall at my LGS anybody ever shoot one looks like it could be rough on the hand/fingers of the forward hand , plus your face would be close to the cylinder to barrel gap.
I don't think the Henry style Mares leg rifles are legal here or are they a pistol because of the 12 inch barrel?

I shot one a couple months back in 410.
I did not feel any blast from the cylinder on my face.

Mares Leg is sold as a pistol

I assume you are talking about the Rossi Circuit Judge?


I handled one at the local Dick's and I was NOT impressed; the fit and finish was pretty bad. Unfortunately I have nothing in terms of a range report.

Yes, I thought that was a Taurus I also checked the handgun list and nothing on a approved mares leg.

Taurus and Rossi are the same company. They will have the same gun under each brand with a different name (sometimes the same), like GMC and Chevy.

I think the problem with the Mare's leg is the same problem with Bond Arms' line of derringers; one of the configurations includes firing shotgun shells, therefore all of them are banned.
