Taurus Adds Viridian Grip Laser to 856 Small-Frame Revolvers

May 2019 (Miami, FL) – Taurus, a leading innovator and manufacturer of handguns for personal defense, competitive shooting, and hunting, has enhanced the performance of its popular carry concealed revolver with the introduction of Viridian Grip Lasers. The new grip option for the Taurus® 856 and 856 Ultra-Lite provides fast target acquisition under high-stress defensive situations.

Designed for everyday concealed carry in a robust .38 Special +P platform, the 856 and 856UL series pistols provide 6-shot capacity with spurred hammer, DA/SA performance. The new Viridian Grip Laser models now deliver a dual sighting system as a backup for the included iron sights or as a primary sight for both day and nighttime use.

The red laser is incorporated into the right side of the grip for clear illumination on the target. Integrated into the ergonomic grip is an intuitive switch that automatically activates the laser once the shooter achieves a shooting grip. The laser range is effective up to 25 yards in daylight and up to one mile at night. Adjustable for both windage and elevation, the laser has a battery life of up to four hours.

For rapid target acquisition on the range or in a defense condition, the 856 and 856UL pistols with the Viridian Laser Grip option ensure on-target performance in any situation.
