Taurus, manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is excited to announce that its most popular everyday carry revolver line is expanding with the introduction of a 6-shot model chambered for the .327 Federal Magnum.
The Taurus 856 has proven itself as a dependable, easy-to-carry personal protection handgun for anyone who favors the reliable performance and simplicity of a revolver. The revolver’s compact design, smooth operation, and recoil-mitigating cushioned grip has made it a go-to firearm for everyday carry and deep concealment. Previously chambered only for .38 Special +P, Taurus now offers consumers a revolver based off the popular 856 but chambered for the highly capable .327 Federal Magnum.
The .327 Federal Magnum is one of the “dark horse” cartridges in the personal defense world. Based on a lengthened .32 H&R Magnum cartridge case, the .327 Federal Magnum exceeds the performance of its parent cartridge with velocity pushing toward the .357 Magnum range without the heavy perceived recoil pulse. This makes the .327 Federal Magnum-chambered Taurus an excellent choice for EDC revolver fans looking for a hard-hitting yet easily manageable 6-round capacity handgun in a compact and concealable form
The new Taurus 327 is a double-action/single-action, available as a 2-inch or 3-inch barrel firearm that is multi-cartridge compatible, able to also accept .32 H&R Magnum and .32 S&W Long cartridges. The matte black carbon steel or stainless-steel barrel, cylinder, and frame are backed by a recoil-absorbing rubber grip that is comfortable and provides excellent retention in a compact handgun platform. The Taurus 327’s front serrated ramp sight and no-snag rear sight channel provide quick and clear targets acquisition supported by consistent accuracy.
- MSRP - $371.05 Matte Black Model
- MSRP - $388.32 Stainless Model
