Focusing on an ever-increasing awareness of firearms safety, Taurus International introduced in 1997 the internationally patented Taurus Security System. This system renders a firearm inoperable by use of a special key. Taurus listened carefully to its customers and believes the Taurus Security System responds to their desire for additional security for their home and personal defense handguns. This system, a world's first, gives the owner the option of storing their firearm in a locked condition, without cumbersome external devices.
All Taurus Long Guns carry the Taurus Security System. On the pump action guns, the system operates in the same way the revolver system does. On our semi-automatic rifles, the system locks the bolt and firing pin with a turn of the special key. The Taurus Security System is always included at no additional cost and 2 keys come with each new gun.
The Taurus Security System deters unauthorized use of a personal firearm. It is very easy to operate and accomplishes the purpose for which it was designed. When engaged, the system is unobtrusive, yet next-to-impossible to overcome without virtually destroying the firearm itself. When disengaged, the system does not hinder function, reliability, or accuracy.
Initially, the Taurus Security System was first offered on Taurus revolvers. Taurus now incorporates the system on its pistols and rifles.
For anyone with concerns about firearms security, the TAURUS SECURITY SYSTEM offers a solution to a question of major consequence. Only Taurus provides this important, additional measure of assurance ... the Taurus Security System.
