The Taurus 856 is a reliable 6-shot, 38 Special revolver that features soft rubber grips-making it comfortable. Shoot at the range while the double/single action increases speed and accuracy for follow-up shots.
Known for its easily managed recoil impulse, the .38 Special round of the 856 can accommodate ammunition ranging from light target loads to self-defense rounds. The DA/SA action and 2-inch barrel on the 856 optimizes on-body or off-body carry, and home defense usage.
One of Taurus’ most successful semiautomatic handguns has been its PT92, a model similar to Beretta’s model 92 line, but with the addition of an ambidextrous frame safety, rather than the Beretta’s slide-mounted safety.
