Taurus Optics Ready Option Revolvers are now California Approved!

Bainbridge, GA – The hottest revolver of 2023 is now on available for residents of California! The Taurus 856 T.O.R.O. and 605 T.O.R.O. (Taurus Optics Ready Option) revolvers were added to the California Department of Justice’s roster of Handguns Certified for Sale, commonly called “the roster.”

The 856 T.O.R.O. and 605 T.O.R.O. models available are the stainless-steel models, which feature CCW friendly compact grips, a black ramp front sight, and of course the one of a kind Optics Ready Option for Taurus revolvers. When they first launched in 2023, the T.O.R.O. revolvers were the first ever mass market CCW revolvers that allowed users to mount a red dot. The optic plate secures to the top strap of the revolver and supports any sight that utilize the Shield RMSc or Holosun K-series footprint.

“I’m thrilled to have the T.O.R.O. revolvers on the California roster,” said Caleb Giddings, Taurus’ General Manager of Marketing. “With their addition to the roster, residents of California now have access to three of the fantastic revolver products we’ve introduced in the past couple of years. They can have a 357 Magnum T.O.R.O., a 38 Special six-shot T.O.R.O., or the hand-built 856 Executive Grade. We’re committed to providing quality defensive firearms to the law-abiding citizens of California.”

The T.O.R.O. revolvers continue Taurus’ tradition of innovation and out of the box thinking. The most common complaint about small frame revolvers is often the sights, a problem which is easily addressed by adding an optic.
