Taurus has come on with a vengeance in revolvers this year. The 692 is a full-sized revolver in .357 Magnum and .38 Special.
Big deal, you say! Every .357 revolver also shoots .38 Special. That isn’t what we meant by multiple calibers. With one press of a button, the cylinder is removable, and in its place? Taurus has provided a 9mm cylinder. One wheelgun = three calibers. Now, we’re talking.

Impressions and Pricing
This has a lot of potential. Survivalist types can now pack an uber reliable package that accepts a large variety of fuel. For those of us that maybe suck with a revolver, present company included, we can train with super cheap 9mm rounds. The capacity for both calibers is 7 rounds, and the barrel length is 6.5 inches. The barrel is also ported, to help tame full power .357 Magnum rounds. This gun looks like a winner and is sure to make our review list in the coming year.
