Taurus Introduces T.O.R.O. Revolvers

posted on January 18, 2023

Taurus has introduced a set of 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, such as a Holosun EPS Carry.

Stainless 605 TORO Left Side

Both the 856 and 605 T.O.R.O. are based on the Defender series. These revolvers feature all steel construction, three-inch barrels and a replaceable front sight. The triggers are double-action/single-action, which provide a balance between smoothness and speed in a defensive scenario.

The 856 holds six shots of .38 Special, and for hunters looking for backcountry protection, the 605 boasts five rounds of .357 Magnum. Both are available in either black or stainless. For more information, check out taurususa.comMSRP: $450-$470
