The Taurus Executive Grade 856 shares a lot of the same features as the highly venerated Smith & Wesson Model 60 but also comes with the Pelican Case, and a concealed hammer, and also costs about $200 less. Taurus has been gradually improving its product line over the last couple of years and the introduction of the Executive Grade line seems to be a part of its goal to improve its product lineup. The new Taurus Executive Grade 856 .38 Spl +P revolver officially launches today (May 27th, 2022) and should be in stock and on sale from your local Taurus distributors for an MSRP of $689.00.
The new Executive Grade 856 also comes packed with premium features like a custom hand polished satin finish, Altamont Walnut checkered grip, a travel-friendly Pelican Vault Hard case, Chamfered cylinder chambers, a concealed hammer, and a hand-tuned trigger to combine the best aspects of comfort and performance. The six-shot .38 Spl +P revolver features a small frame size and is naturally a double-action-only revolver. The hammerless design makes it perfect for a snag-free concealed carry revolver that will still get eyes on it at the flat range.
