These are easy to conceal .38 Special +P double-action/single-action (DA/SA) revolvers that combine simple, effective design with easily managed recoil, accuracy, durability and reliability. Fit and finish are superb. Taurus 856s differ thanks to stainless steel or alloy frames, matte black or matte carbon finishes for the barrel and cylinder, a selection of anodized colors for the frame and a variety of black rubber grips.
Frame color choices include anodizing in azure blue, bronze, burned orange, matte black, matte stainless, matte natural (think satin) and rouge. Anodizing applies the color in a thick hard coat finish that’s durable and long-lasting.
Key dimensions: all 856 models share the same a 4.80” height and 1.41” width. . It has two and a half finger recesses in front, horizontal ribbing in back, and diamond pattern raised side texturing.
However, some exceptions come to mind on the grips.

It has a master on/off switch and is grip activated. It’s even adjustable for windage and elevation. Weight on this model rises a tad to 22.6 ounces.
Another all matte black model is available with Gray Cyclone VZ Operator II Grips. In front is a fixed front serrated ramp sight while in back is a non-adjustable integrated rear sight. The curve of the external spurred hammer almost echoes the trigger’s curve. The guns come standard with fast reload enabling stellar clips.
