Product Description

What's in the Box

  • 856 Ultra Lite 38 Special Matte Stainless Revolver
  • Cable Lock

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. This 856 features a 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 DA/SA action and 2-inch barrel on the 856 optimizes on-body or off-body carry, and home defense usage.

Customer Comments & Questions

Customer Reviews

(5 out of 5) Great quality for the price
by from Currituck, NC on

I bought this revolver about 2 weeks ago and have already put 50-plus rounds through it and found it to be a very reliable revolver. It has become my consistent companion for everyday carry

(3 out of 5) Not Very Accurate
by from Hogansville, GA on

Let me preface this review by saying I own two other Taurus pistols. I’ve been shooting for more than 60 years. I bought this 856 for my wife to carry. I just upgraded my CCW to Enhanced CCW. I took this pistol to re-qualify with. Was a very good thing I had my primary carry weapon with me, my Kimber K6s 357. Because the accuracy of this pistol is terrible at 15 feet. You’d be better throwing it at somebody. Might be fine at 3 to 10 feet, not beyond that.
