A modern update on a classic design, the new Taurus® Protector Polymer Series is built for those who want the best of old and new. This revolver is offered with either a classically inspired checkered grip that has the look of wood but the purchase and durability of polymer or a Taurus Ribber Grip®. Taurus’s new polymer hybrid frame makes the revolver lightweight and easy to carry.
