Taurus recently announced an expansion to its 856UL revolver line. The company added two new Cobalt Blue models to the lightweight 856UL line.
Taurus Cobalt Blue 856UL
The spurred hammer action 856 revolver now comes in stylish Cobalt Blue anodized finish to provide consumers with a sleek, custom handgun look. The model features either a matte black carbon steel or matte stainless steel cylinders and barrels.
Designed for both comfortable carry and shooting in a compact platform, the 856UL revolvers utilize an aluminum frame to reduce weight. To mitigate felt recoil and to provide a solid, no-slip purchase, the 856UL features a soft, ergonomic rubber grip. The cylinder holds six rounds of .38 Special +P while the spurred hammer provides DA/SA action. An integrated rear sight channel and low serrated ramp front sight combine with a smoothly curved trigger guard to maintain a discrete profile for IWB or OWB carry, according to Taurus.
Taurus offers the Cobalt Blue and black carbon steel model with a $25 rebate. Meanwhile, the stainless steel model comes with a $30 rebate. The Taurus Cobalt Blue 856UL limited rebate runs through the end of September.
