Taurus  Defender

Taurus 856 Defender  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.

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 2-inch barrel on the 856 now comes with a removable serrated front sight optimizing on-body or off-body.

Features of Taurus 856 Defender

One of Taurus’ most successful semiautomatic handguns has been its PT92, a model similar to Beretta’s model 92 line, but with the addition of an ambidextrous frame safety, rather than the Beretta’s slide-mounted safety.

The most recent addition to the Taurus pistol lineup is a copy of the Colt 1911 .45 ACP pistol, the PT1911. This slightly redesigned and updated design offers many features.
