This Taurus Model 416 Raging Bull is double-action (DA/SA) revolver has a 6-shot cylinder and a heavy full-lug barrel. The barrel has a built-in compensator with three gas ports on both sides of the front sight. Features include a ventilated barrel rib, adjustable sights, front and rear cylinder locks and rubber grip with integrated recoil buffer.
The Raging Bull has a ported barrel and a red rubber strip along the back of its grip (in some variants such as the Raging Hornet, this strip is yellow), which cushions the shooter’s hand and lowers perceived recoil. Functionally, the Raging Bull has a manually operated front cylinder latch, whose release can be seen on the crane.
Optional finishes include stainless steel, matte stainless steel, nickel plated and blued. Barrel options include 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″, 10″. Not all finishes or barrels are available for every model. All models have ported barrels, except for the 22H, 30C and Ultralite. All models have fixed front sights and adjustable rear sights.
The Raging Hornet and the Raging Thirty have yellow rubber insert strips, as opposed to the typical red strip. Most Raging Bull variants can mount commercial optical sights and lasers with the aid of an optional screw-on Picatinny rail.
Dual lockup cylinder
Provides stability under extreme chamber pressures.
Taurus Security System (TSS)
Taurus family of semi-auto pistols all feature the Taurus Security System, which provides instant-ready defense with built-in ability to secure pistol and make it inoperable at the turn of a key. When the Security System is engaged, the pistol cannot be fired or cocked and the gun’s manual safety cannot be disengaged. As with revolver Security System, the device is part of the firearm and cannot be lost, and the same special Security Key works for both the revolver and pistol Systems (two keys come with each gun).
The transfer bar mechanism prevents the hammer from striking the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully to the rear.
