The New Taurus 856 and 605 T.O.R.O.

In October of 2022 we asked consumers what innovation they wanted to see on the heels of the 856 Executive Grade. The answer was swift and unanimous: a small frame optics ready revolver. You asked, we answered. Introducing the first ever optics ready small frame revolvers, the Taurus 856 T.O.R.O. and the Taurus 605 T.O.R.O. Both revolvers are milled at the factory to accept the optics plate designed specifically for this application. The plate itself accepts compact red dots designed for the Holosun K footprint. For example, you could take the new 856 T.O.R.O. and mount the Holosun EPS Carry on it and be ready to roll. The advantages to a red dot on a revolver are significant. Obviously, red dot sights are easier for many people to shoot. Additionally, a red dot can be zeroed to a specific grain weight or type of ammo, which wasn’t an option with a traditional fixed sight revolver. Both the 856 and 605 T.O.R.O. are based on the incredibly popular Defender series from Taurus. These revolvers feature all steel construction, three-inch barrels, and a replaceable front sight. The triggers are Taurus’ excellent double-action/single-action trigger, which provides a smooth but fast pull in double action for serious defensive shooting. Most importantly, we’ve partnered with industry leading brands in the concealment space so that when you get your T.O.R.O. revolver, you won’t have to wait six months for a holster. And of course, we’ve maintained our commitment to making reliable, affordable firearms. This means that the new 856 and 605 T.O.R.O. revolvers will have MSRPs that range from under $450 to $470 depending on whether you select the 6-shot .38 Special 856, or the 5-shot .357 Magnum 605 in black or stainless. Some companies talk about how “innovative” they are. We didn’t talk. We just did it. About Taurus: Taurus Holdings, Inc.
