Bronze Revolver The Taurus 856 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. 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.
Features of Bronze Revolver
Taurus was originally known for manufacturing revolvers similar in design to those offered by Smith & Wesson. The company moved away from this realm by offering larger framed models such as the Raging Bull (.454 Casull) and Raging Hornet (.22 Hornet) revolvers as well as the Judge 5-shot revolvers (.410 bore and .45 Colt).
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.
