what differences are there? Any? I can't get a call through to Taurus (shocker) to find out. Anyone know? Certainly not capacity so is it trigger pull weight?
I guess if the barrel was canted to the left, its' a CA model. Glad Taurus is sending you a new one.Well, I just picked it up from the store, got it home, and noticed (now, uh!) that the barrel is canted. I have a call into Taurus for warranty service. We'll see if they call me back today or not.
All of my Taurus revolvers get Galloway kits. I kept the OEM grip on my stainless model and replaced the rubber grip with a Hogue rosewood grip on the steel version. Sweet indeed.Got my new one. Installed the Galloway spring kit, the oem 3 finger grip, and polished the hammer strut. It's super sweet now!
it's the same gun. There's nothing about a regular 856 that wouldn't allow it to be sold in California. Taurus and other manufacturers that sell in California and have certified guns for California have to set aside a certain run of guns as being "for California only". Those get specific SKUs. Beyond that it is totally meaningless for the 856. For a semi-auto it would mean it didn't ship with high capacity mags. None of the California certified guns are built differently.I don't know if this is correct or a typo, but the SKU's are different.
The Taurus website and catalog list the regular 856 as 856029 and the CA legal 856 as 85629.
They are listed separately.
