Taurus 856 38 Special Double-Action Revolver with Black Finish
Taurus 856 Revolver is a reliable 6-shot, 38 Special revolver that features soft rubber grips-making it comfortable to shoot at the range while the double/single action increases speed and accuracy for follow-up shots. The 856 is offered in either a Matte Black or Matte Stainless finish. 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 2-inch barrel on the 856 now comes with a removable serrated front sight optimizing on-body or off-body carry, and home defense usage. Taurus USA recently released the new UL 856 handgun, expanding the company’s lightweight, concealed carry pistol lineup with a platform that is ideal for those who favor the straightforward operation of a revolver as their primary or backup defensive firearm.
The new Taurus® UL 856 is chambered for the popular .38 Special cartridge and offers a six-shot cylinder, delivering 20 percent more defensive capacity than conventional five-round compact revolvers yet does so with a pleasingly low-profile. Adding to the UL 856’s concealed carry credentials is the revolver’s lightweight aluminum frame. At 15.7 ounces unloaded, the UL 856 is exceptionally comfortable in multiple carry configurations.
With its DA/SA action and short-spur hammer, the UL 856 can be quickly engaged for defensive work or be used in SA mode for accurate target shooting. Trigger pull in double-action and single-action modes are 10-12 lbs. and 4-6 lbs., respectively.
