Ruger makes single action revolvers that are convertible like this. My nephew has one, and I thought I'd like to get one too. But now, if these do become available, I'd prefer the Taurus. Double/Single Action.:thumb:

Seems like all the rumors are coming true.

Next we'll see the Raging Hunter.

im not a big revolver guy - but i dont dig it at all. i just dont get the idea of shooting 9mm in a revolver. i know its an inherently efficient cartridge but does it realyl do anything a .357 wont do. even a modest load in magnum outperforms it.

kinda reminds me of an old ruger i had - came with 2 cylinders. 22 mag and 22lr. i havent seen the 22mag cylinder in years. guess i lost it when it didnt get used. would probably end up losing the 9mm cylinder too.

for those more knowledgable than me - is there any advantage to using 9mm in a revolver.
The advantage is cheap practice. 9mm is a lot cheaper than even 38 special. So one can get good trigger time on their gun without a lot of cost and recoil. Sure the 38 special can fill that role, but again 9mm is still cheaper.

I found it on the TaurusUSA.com web site. Just search for 692 and the four models (blued & stainless - 3" & 6.5" barrels) show up. I think this one is a lot closer to release than I imagined. I am glad they went with 3" & 6" barrels. Looking forward to owning at least one of these!

Despite all the bad things going on with Taurus this revolver definitely piqued my interest. I primarily shoot 9mm, but do occasionally shoot both .38 and .357 with my dad's revolvers. The 3" model seems like it would be an ideal length for carrying and accuarcy. I almost wish they went with 3.5" or even 4". I'm going to be watching for this to be released, hopefully the price will be within reason.

This could be what saves the day for Taurus & their loyal customers! I definitely want one if they become available soon and if indeed the stellar clips are available in their supply train for additional purchase! A 3" revolver is a very useful firearm to have! Ok Taurus - show us your stuff at the upcoming NRA shows!

Manufacture suggested retail price is $659 for either the 3" or 6.5" 2 stellar clips are included
If the 862 revolver becomes popular, maybe Taurus would make them with other barrel lengths.

I would like to see Taurus take this one step further. How about interchangeable cylinders and barrels. Offering various lengths and calibers for multi-caliber interaction.

Yeah, I know it's been done in the past, but it would be nice to see it done at a price point that is much more affordable.

Yes, I am that guy who would look a gift horse in the mouth and even bitch if I was hung with a new rope.

I will check out the Taurus booth at the SHOT Show in Vegas on Thursday and post information here. I'm also going to be looking for info on the Raging Hunter.

I saw this new revolver at the SHOT Show and have some pictures to share, but the Internet here at my hotel in Vegas sucks. I'll get them posted later tonight or maybe tomorrow.

Did they have the 3 inch revolver or just the 6 inch?
