This is an ULTRA RARE revolver, made by TAURUS and crowned "RAGING HORNET". This eight-round monster, carved of solid stainless steel, is chambered in hyper-speed round knows as .22 Hornet. Weapon is double action/single action and is 16.5 inches long with a 10-inch barrel. The round, .22 Hornet, is not hard to find so no worry about running out of ammunition.

As reported by Brad Fitzpatrick in GEAR AMMO on April 18, 2018:

The .22 Hornet traces its lineage back to the .22 WCF. Col. Townsend Whelen and Capt. G.L. Wotkyns both of whom were working with Springfield Armory during the Roaring Twenties helped finalize the centerfire cartridge's design and chambered it in converted M1922 Springfield rifles, but it was Winchester that first legitimized the cartridge for the commercial market in 1930. The .22 Hornet was an immediate success, gaining ground as a light-recoiling centerfire cartridge that was thought to be ideal for moderate-range varmint and predator hunting.

The cartridge also became a popular silhouette competition round and even saw duty in World War II when it was chambered in the M4 Survival Rifle, which was carried as an emergency firearm by U.S. airmen. Velocities from a 24-inch barrel range from about 2,500 to 2,700 fps with 45-grain loads to more than 3,100 fps with 30-grain factory offerings. Because many .22 Hornet rifles feature 1:16 twist rates, 45 grains is the heaviest bullet weight offered in most factory loadings.
