(Miami, FL) – Taurus®, the global leader in revolver manufacturing,
introduces the new View, five-shot revolver to their ever-expanding
line of concealed carry handguns. Taurus is moving in great strides
to produce firearms that are easy to carry while maintaining their
high standard of reliability and performance.
The View, named because of its distinctive, translucent side plate
on the right side of the revolver that bares the interior mechanisms,
carries with ease. This .38 Special is based on the Taurus Model 85,
but the distinct difference with this small-frame revolver is the new
contoured grip and grip frame that won’t print when worn inside fitted
clothing, like most traditional carry guns. Another advantage of this
new grip shape is that it sits back in the palm, reducing muzzle
lift. The View also incorporates a subtle, unique curvature cant to the
grip’s shape while keeping the thickness of the revolver minimal
while increasing the comfort of carrying the firearm.
The titanium cylinder and snub nose barrel keep the revolver ultra light
in weight (approx. 9 ounces unloaded) while increasing its strength.
The stainless steel ejector rod is shortened for easy carry. The Taurus
View boasts a 10-pound trigger, making it ideal for personal defensive
purposes. The non-adjustable sight is aligned for point-of-aim/point-of-impact
shooting at close quarter distances. Choose to carry, choose the View.
