Included with the 405 Revolver are stellar clips for quick and easy loading and unloading.

The new 445 Ultra-Lite answers the call for a revolver in the popular .44 Special round. The 445 features an Ultra-Lite frame that weighs only 22 ounces. This lightweight revolver is an aggressive wheel-gun that delivers superior accuracy and stopping power without the heft or bulk of most large caliber revolvers.

Each revolver's barrel measure 2 inches, with an overall length of 7 inches. Both 5-shot revolvers are available in a blue or matte stainless finish and are outfitted with Taurus' exclusive Ribber Grips® that reduce felt recoil and ensure a more positive hold.Like all Taurus firearms the 405 Revolver and 445 Ultra-Lite come standard with the unique onboard Taurus Security System® that allows users to securely lock the gun using an inconspicuous key-lock.
