THE NEW TAURUS® VIEW

BUILT TO CARRY

(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, Carry On.
