Default 856, one fine revolver

Bought a 856 awhile back for myself. Ended up giving it to my Granddaughter. She loves the darn thing and shoots it pretty good. I missed it so much that I bought another one. Got the UL model. A little more bite than the regular but for the price you sure can't beat it. I have to say the last 3 Taurus hand guns have been trouble free. Maybe they have finally turned the quality problem around.

I bought a stainless model 85 about a year ago and I have to say I'm quite impressed with it. Double action pull actually feels smoother than the J -frame Smiths I've shot.

Yes it doesn't have the refinement like my SW 60 but didn't cost as much either. Plus it always goes bang. Great gun and also 6 bullets instead of 5.

Iíve had a few of the small Taurus revolvers and really liked em. Think Iíll have to get another. Had them in 38 and 357 mag and thought they were a good value.
