Taurus has introduced a new five-shot revolver that it calls the View, named because of its translucent side plate on the right side of the revolver that bares the interior mechanisms.
Based on the Model 85, the View features a contoured grip and grip frame designed to not print when worn inside fitted clothing. The grip is also designed to sit back in the palm to reduce muzzle lift, and has a curvature in the shape to minimize thickness and increase comfort.
The titanium cylinder and snubnose barrel keep the revolver ultra light in weight (approx. 9 ounces unloaded) while increasing its strength. The stainless-steel ejector rod is shortened for easy carry. The Taurus View boasts a 10-pound trigger, and the non-adjustable sight is aligned for point-of-aim/point-of-impact shooting at close-quarter distances.
