Following on the success of its best-selling TH-series, Taurus adds .45 ACP to the line with the TH45. The fully ambidextrous pistol provides a smooth double-action pull while maintaining a crisp single-action trigger. However, the innovative combination thumb safety/de-cocker allows you to carry the TH45 cocked and locked or hammer down.
The Taurus TH45
Built on a polymer frame, the TH45 was carefully thought out to withstand the punishment that the big bore .45 ACP can dish out. Riding atop the full-size frame is the alloy steel slide with a fixed front and drift adjustable rear sight.
Correspondingly, the sights use industry-standard dovetails so that they can be easily replaced with after-market sights. Likewise, a two-slot Picatinny rail, just forward of the trigger guard, provides space for a light or laser.
Housed within the slide is the 4.25-inch stainless steel barrel chambered in .45 ACP. Rounds are delivered from the hammer-fired pistol via a traditional double-action trigger. As a result, the first shot has a long, smooth pull like a revolver. However, follow-up shots come in single-action mode for crisp, duty-ready precision.
The TH45 offers a complete complement of ambidextrous controls, so left-handed shooters have easy access to their pistol’s operation. In addition, the pistol can be carried either cocked and locked or hammer down via Taurus’s innovative combination thumb safety/de-cocker.
Ensuring that you have enough ammo for personal or home defense, the TH45 offers a 13+1-round capacity. Correspondingly, it ships with two 13-round magazines, so you have backup right out of the box.
“I can’t think of anything better than launching a 45 ACP the same week as Independence Day,” said Caleb Giddings, Brand Marketing Manager at Taurus. “The 45 ACP is a quintessential American cartridge, and the TH45 is the perfect platform from Taurus to expand into this particular caliber.”
The Taurus TH45 is available now with an MSRP of $529.99. For more info, please visit TaurusUSA.com.
