Taurus has expanded its 856 Ultralight lineup by introducing four optional anodized coatings. Now available in Azure, Bronze, Burnt Orange, or Rouge aluminum frames, the 856 Ultralight offers a custom flair for those looking for a discreet carry or home-defense handgun.
The 856 Ultralight is based on the standard 856 revolver but features an aluminum frame for reduced carry weight (15.7 ozs. unloaded), making it an ideal handgun for easy, all-day carry on the body or off. Chambered in .38 Spl. with a 6-shot capacity, the 856 is designed with an ergonomic, soft-rubber grip for positive retention while mitigating recoil. A double/single action type features a spurred hammer firing system.
Contrasting the anodized aluminum finish are the cylinder, barrel, trigger, and hammer finishes. Consumers can choose between matte black carbon steel or matte stainless steel for additional customizing options.
To accommodate self-defense or target shooting, the 856 can be used with ammunition ranging from light target loads to self-defense rounds.
