    I purchased a Taurus 856 hy-lite magnesium. All the adds including Taurus website indicated it weighed 13.2ozs. When I got it I was quite happy with its performance, very accurate for a snubby, but seemed to weigh about the same or more than my S&W 642. I pulled out the digtal scales and weighed the 642. It was specd to weigh 15oz and weight 15.1 empty. The 856 weighed 15.5oz, empty, that's 2.3 oz out of spec. I was going to email taurus and ask what's what. Every other gun manufacture that i've seen has a email contact, Taurus No. Will call on Monday and follow up.
