Taurus M4510 .410/.45 Colt

Big bore revolvers chambering .410 shotshells are not new. Over…

Big bore revolvers chambering .410 shotshells are not new. Over the years there have been a number of them from various manufacturers and these guns have seen varied amounts of success. When Taurus introduced their version of the .410 revolver, I admit I wasn’t all that excited about it.

taurus2.jpgThe truth is, it was not until I had a conversation with my friend Dave Biggers of XS Sights that I even considered testing the gun. Dave had picked up the new Taurus Model 4510 on the recommendation of a friend. Naturally, the first thing he did to his new gun was to install an XS Big Dot Tritium front sight.

    Does any Company manufacture a rimless “clip” which would allow the use of .45 acp, or .45 Win Mags in these Revs?

    If not, than with popularity of these pieces, some smart guy could sell a bunch O clips!

    Like David Edger Allallan Coe 1nce said, Son you did not write the perfect Country & Western Song…

    Today I saw, and handled the new T J revolvers. I’d seen them before, but rejected them.

    I’m a .45 acp, .45 Super, .41 Power Mag, and .45 Colt kinda guy. My Dad, and his Brothers all owned .45 Colt GM acp’s, so I was raised on .45’s. I personally owned an AMT HardBaller back in late ’70’s.

    I live in St. Louie. Main fear is: Car Jacking.

    Back in the late ’70’s I had the luck to walk into a gunshop going out of biz. I picked up a Ruger New Model BlackHalk Convertable in .45 Colt & .45 acp. In the close out bin was a Poly Choke 71/2″ Ventlated Rib for that gun. Behind the shelf were .45 WIN Mag 230 Shells, 50% off. I bought some Rem .45 Colt. And Fed .45 225 gr Alberts HP’s, (Probably the best .45 LC availabel!) I instantly fell in luv with this BlackHawk. Couldn’t afford the Long Colts, so I’d bum Dad’s .45 a.c.p.’s and with the .45 a.c.p. cylinder I became the Robin Hood of the Range. Most accurate Gun I’d fired. Better’n de ole Gold Cup. 1 Det. even called me a liar when 1 showed him my 25 yd target with 1 fat .45 hole in the bullseye, I said I’d put 6 rounds through!

    My buddy and I were some of the 1st guys to reload .45 Colt Cases with WIN 296 WIN MAG loads! Unique was 1st but cases didn’t last long. 1 cold winter night was ice storm. We made some adapter
    rings out of paper clips to be able to load those WIN Mag cases into the LC Cylinder. I was going to buy an additional .45 Cylinder from Ruger, than Gun Smith was going to bore them out to handle .45 WIN MAg shells. This was before Linebaugh. That night, headed out of the City, back up to the River were I was going to test fire our hot rodding, left cylinder loaded. I was comming across an ice covered bridge driving a French Car, made out of recycled Sherman, and
    Panther Tanks, i.e. would do the loop-de-loop on ice. Comming up on ramp over the bridge was a pimp in a hot rodded Chevy. I couldn’t move over as I was alreday fish tailing and spinnin’ rubber. The pimp wouldn’t back off. Fact he was trying to pass on the right, running out of ramp. He raised up a .32 Revolver and started grinnin, and pointing it at me. The B H was under the seat… So, I thought, OK… This ain’t gonna be my fault… I lowered the passenger window, and aimed the B H right at his head. The man, in a red, with pink feathered hat, turned slab white. So, instead of blowing the man away, I corrected left and fired a round, still not knowing if these .45 WIN MAGS would go: BANG, right across his wind sheild, sorta like an across the bow warning. I leaned the 7.5″ barrel as far as I could towards the window w/o loosing control of the vehicle, and squeezed the trigger. The report
    was deafening! Right after the initional blast my ears went deaf, and started ringing like Big Ben. The muzzel flash, at 3 a.m. half way across the man’s windshield. was blinding. He steared hard right off the embankment. I was a guest next morning on a CW Radio Show. I have no idea how it sounded. My head set, the enginner said, were at max volume.

    I’ve expermented with making shot shells with # 4 buck out of .45 C cases. Recently was going to
    buy some .460 S&W for the same purpose. My problem is my .45’s all all too valuable to
    carry. I’ve built 2 .45 Supers as a Stand Off, take charge pistol. The report is awsome, and frightening.

    This piece looks like the simple answer. Will this Poly frame handle Buffalo Bore/Core Bon .45 LC +P+’s ?

    What’s best Model for anti car jack wepon with ability to engage additional targets in attack vehicle, or adjacent buildings possibly armed with AK’s or worse; .308’s?
