Manufacturer’s Description

The second generation of the original Thunder Ranch Special is just like its big brother, but it features a shortened Commanche slide and 4.25″ Comanche-length barrel. And, just like the original, which was conceived by Clint Smith  (director of Thunder Ranch) and designed by Les Baer, this is a serious, no-nonsense self-defense pistol which is intended to help people survive in a tough, unfriendly world.

This .45 ACP pistol is also chrome plated, so it’s a perfect choice for any humid environment, like the northwestern or southeastern U.S.
