The Taurus 856 is an affordable and reliable 6 shot, small frame, double/single action revolver chambered in 38 special. The 856 has a 2” barrel, an overall length of 6.55” and a width of just 1.41”, just a tad wider than the 5 shot Taurus 605, making it perfect for those who choose to conceal carry a wheel gun. Double/Single action guns provide the stiff trigger you need to protect against accidental discharge in double action mode and the clean short break you need for follow up shots or precise accuracy in single. The 856 has a removable serated blade front sight and the rear sight is integral to the frame. A transfer bar safety keeps this revolver drop safe. The steel frame of the 856 combined with Taurus’s soft rubber grips soak up recoil making even +P ammunition easier to shoot.
