There was a time in America when the crack of .22 ammunition and the whiff of rimfire gunsmoke at the local fairground was a welcome sign that the carnival had come to town. Men and boys alike lined up at the Shooting Gallery to bust little clay pipes and knock over the running metal bears and prove their skills to win Kewpie dolls for their wives and sweethearts. Harkening back to that wonderful age are Taurus rifles, based on the legendary design of the classic that John Browning invented and American shooters fell in love with over 60 years ago. Taurus Rifles has taken that classic design and added new manufacturing methods and materials toproduce a gun that looks and feels like the original but offers all of the reliability and safety features that modern firearms offer. All Taurus rifles use the finest hardwoods for stocks that are custom fitted to each gun.
