Taurus Tracker 44TRACKER4SS 2-440049TKR 44 Special/44 Magnum

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Tracker is a formidable revolver. It proved reliable and should be useful as a personal-defense revolver for the home or in carry with 44 Special loads. For defense against wild animals, the 44 Magnum loads are a good choice. The Tracker’s ribber grips and barrel ports make for good recoil control. The Tracker is the longest revolver tested, but the handle dimensions are smaller than the GP100 and comparable to the M69. Overall, we felt that the Tracker gave us our money’s worth. A few tool marks did not detract from this 44 Magnum’s performance.

Note the Ribber grips. These were the best grips of the test, our raters said. You have to work to control the Tracker revolver properly.
This is a sighting-in target with the Taurus Tracker at 25 yards.
No adjustable sight set had an advantage over the other. All the rear sights were adjustable for windage and elevation.
