Taurus USA Partners with PHLster Holsters for 856 City Special Holster

Bainbridge GA – The Taurus 856 T.O.R.O. (Taurus Optics Ready Option) revolver was two things: 1) the first ever optics ready defensive revolver, and 2) a hit with consumers. Now Taurus USA is proud to announce PHLster, the premier holster manufacturer for serious concealed carry practitioners, has added both the 856 and 856 T.O.R.O. to their lineup of City Special holsters.

The Taurus 856 T.O.R.O. features a three inch barrel, which maximizes the terminal effectiveness of the 38 Special cartridge, and unlike other revolvers that size, holds six rounds. Other models of 856 include the award winning 856 Executive Grade, and also includes models with aluminum frames, 2 inch barrels, and many other features.

“This has been a long time coming,” said Caleb Giddings, General Manager of Marketing for Taurus USA. “When we started planning the 856 T.O.R.O., one of my first phone calls was to the team at PHLster. The fact that they’re offering holsters for both the optics-ready gun and the standard 856 is just icing on the cake.”

Additionally, PHLster will be offering its revolutionary carry system, the PHLster Enigma for the 856 family of revolvers. The new City Special and Enigma from PHLster will also fit most of the other small frame revolvers in the Taurus USA catalog. This includes such favorites as the 605 T.O.R.O., a five-shot 357 Magnum optics ready revolver, and the Taurus 905, a five-shot 9mm revolver.
