    What Taurus 357 revolver for concealed carry?

    Prefer Stainless Steel.
    Is there a 6 round 357 you'd recomment for easy concealed carry?

    I know it is only a 5 shot and that extra one may matter but I would say a 605. Pretty easy to conceal. And no, I'm not one of those people who disregard what the OP wrote!

    I, too, am partial to the 605 models. Maybe because I have a SS and a Blued model. But they are good little (key word...) pistols with a 5 shot capacity. You said concealed ... these pistols are small, powerful and conceal well.

    I have the Model 851, which is a five shot snubby and the Model 617 which is the seven shot snubby
    that Taurus makes. I carry the Model 851 more often for comfort reasons. (it is a good deal lighter)
    Both are excellent revolvers and I load .38 Special +P HP Remington Golden Sabers in them when
    I carry. The Model 851 is a .38 Special and the 617 is a .357 Magnum.
    Taurus: Model 66 4"
    Judge 6.5" 3" Cylinder
    Model 617 2"
    Raging Bull .44 Magnum 6.5"
    Model 851 2"

    I find the 7 round 617SS2 357 is just very slightly thicker through the cylinder than a 6 round Colt Cobra 38 spl. NON +P but it is about 12 oz. heavier with a good holster and belt it can be easily concealed. A light weight revolver will produce more perceived recoil since it does not have the weight to help absorb the recoil.

    I believe the difference in the cylinder diameter was only 0.030" or 0.040" bigger on the 617 if I remember correctly.

    Look at the Taurus Poly Protectors. Lightweight and fun to shoot.

    A used Taurus® Mdl 65 w/2¾" barrel; or Mdl 606 w/a 2¼" barrel meets your criteria.
