Taurus breathes new life into its revolver line, adding custom colors to its compact 856 Ultralight revolver series.

The latest color offerings include Azure, Bronze, Burnt Orange or Rouge aluminum frames. Contrasting the colored frames are the cylinder, barrel, trigger and hammer finished in either matte stainless steel or matte black carbon steel.

Based on the 856 revolver, the Ultralight boasts an aluminum frame, bringing the weight down to 15.7-ounces unloaded. Chambered in .38 Special, the revolver can accommodate 6-shots. A DA/SA action, the 856 Ultralight brings a trigger pull of 10 to 12-pounds in DA and 4 to 6-pounds in SA. Measuring 6.55-inches in overall length, the revolver stands 4.8-inches tall.

“The 856 Ultralight is based on the standard 856 revolver but features an aluminum frame for reduced carry weight, making it an ideal handgun for easy, all-day carry on the body or off,” Taurus said in a news release. “To accommodate self-defense or target shooting needs, the 856 can be used with ammunition ranging from light target loads to self-defense rounds.”

The Taurus 856 Ultralight revolver ships with a price tag of $359 for the color and black pairing and $379 for the color and stainless steel look.
