The Taurus Model 856 fires 38 special + P cartridges and delivers the payload just as you've come to expect from a Taurus pistol, with a custom trigger design for improved accuracy and speed.

The Taurus 856 is best known for its easily managed recoil impulse and unerring accuracy even though such a small frame pistol.

Weighing in at only 23.5 ounces, the Taurus 856 seems lighter in the hand than you'd first expect, but don't let that fool you.  After only a couple of shots, you'll be amazed at how well the Taurus 856 responds.

Each time you fire, you'll marvel at the innovative design features Taurus has put into the Taurus 856, even down to the molded rubberized grip designed to fit an average shooter's hand that provides a well-balanced and positive grip.

Taurus USA offers this version of the Model 856 .38 Special caliber with night sights and a six-round capacity.  Although the Taurus 856 has a barrel only 3 inches long, thanks to the design innovation from the folks at Taurus USA, you won't experience as much muzzle lift as you'd expect to get from other small-sized frame pistols.

The 856 is ready to perform with terminal velocity when necessary, even though it looks sleek and docile with its matte black finish frame, and will most definitely make a fantastic addition to your arsenal.

The perfect weapon for concealed carry, home defense, or just a fun-filled afternoon at the range, the Taurus 856 is one handgun you can count on to fire effectively and reliably for many years to come.
