Brazilian gun giant Taurus has added a concealed hammer option to their growing series of Model 856 compact revolvers.

The double-action-only 856 Concealed Hammer, like the rest of its line, features an ergonomic rubber grip to help manage felt recoil in the lightweight 15.7-ounce six-shooter. Chambered in .38 Special +P, the 856 series has a 2-inch barrel which gives it an overall length of 6.55-inches.

Besides standard black and matte stainless offerings, the Concealed Hammer also has a series of optional anodized coatings to include Azure and Burnt Orange with the option of either a black carbon steel or stainless steel cylinder. Frame material can also be selected with options for aluminum, carbon steel, or matte stainless.

Taurus carries a wide range of color combinations for the 856 in their 2019 catalog, with optional frame and cylinder choices as well.

Retail pricing suggested by Taurus ranges from $363 to $415 depending on options selected.
