MIL Thunder Five

Yes, it's Big, loud, and ugly. However, in this case, MIL doesn't stand for Mother-in-Law.. Years before Taurus came out with the "Judge," MIL of Piney Flats TN was producing this fine example of over-engineered .410/45lc revolver. Since MILs closing, The Thunder Five has appeared in movies and become quite the collectible piece. This gun is serial #296 (Yes...296). Sometimes a thing is so ugly, that it's actually pretty. $700






I am the original owner, and have all original box and paperwork that came with the sale

Nice looking revolver, I vaguely remember reading something about it back in the late 80's or early 90's. I totally forgot about it until you posted your pictures.

Before I learned that it should be coddled as a safe queen, I can say that it is extremely effective at dispatching copperheads and coons that desire to come in the house. Due to it's incredible heft, there is almost no recoil from even magnum 410 shells. It's much heavier than the Judge
