    Differences between the Taurus 856 Ultralight vs Standard version.

    I've previously posted a thread on the Taurus 856 version and if I handles +P. I figured that since that's a separate issue given that it was ammo related, I figured, my new question would warrant a new topic. I'm fixed with a choice between the Taurus 856 standard and the Ultralight version. I tried looking this question up, but I still wasn't able to get many details.

    4 onces. And the option of getting one in the color of your choice; for the light weight model.

    So I take it, aside from the Ultralight version being slightly more expensive, that it also is lighter. I know that both models are made with different materials, but I wanted to clarify if the standard version is more or less durable. Figured that i'd be worth asking just to be on the safe side since I plan on buying one.

    Both models are rated for +P ammunition. Steel frame gun weighs 22oz, Aluminum (Ultra-Lite™) weighs 16oz. Both frames are available as traditional DA/SA revolvers or DAO (CH). What other questions do you have?

    All I have left is reliability. I figured I wanted to weigh in on my options as best I can.

    I have the standard model and it is very accurate and has been extremely reliable. You can't go wrong with it.

    Is the Ultralight any different in terms of reliability?

    I originally went to my lgs with the intentions of buying a burnt orange one. I left the store after I decided to order a stainless concealed hammer model. I am thinking the stainless model's finish will hold up better than the anodize ones.
