The main feature of the Taurus 692 revolver is its multi-caliber. In the basic version, the model can be used with .38 Special and .357 Mag cartridges; when the drum is changed, with the more popular 9 × 19 mm pistol cartridge.

Taurus 692 has a double-action firing mechanism, both versions of the drum hold 7 cartridges. The new gun will go on sale in four versions: in matte metallic and black colors, as well as with barrel length 3 (7,62 cm) or 6,5 inch (16,5 cm). In this case, the manufacturer’s stated retail price is the same for all modifications and amounts to $ 695, "Warspot"

        I have the same question: why

        for shooting in the dash is convenient ...
        different cartridges - different prices, etc. component

      But why?

      This question will be asked by the "investors" to the "management" of the company, if sales do not go ...

        They will. Even as they go. It’s a pity that we don’t ...
        When I lived in Stamford ST, I had seen enough of the shooting ranges and shooters there.
        Not everyone can get a magnum, and not often such power is needed. The .38 Special is a great caliber for beginners and less experienced shooters. Well, 9x19 is the most common and not the most expensive cartridge. The price of the Brazilian revolver is quite affordable. hi

    .38 Special and .357 Mag,

    The different lengths of the sleeve are just not new and they have a 9 mm bullet and therefore 9x19 with a drum replacement.

    In addition to the drum, you also need to rearrange the barrel. Unless, of course, this is a shotgun.

      No, they have the same diameter bullets.

        Then why is it called bi-caliber? We look into the explanatory dictionary: "Caliber (from French. Caliber) - the diameter of the barrel bore in rifling or fields; one of the main quantities that determine the power of firearms.". STEM CHANNEL DIAMETER.
        With real bicalibration, when the diameters (and not just the lengths) of the charging chambers (well, or the chamber in the drums) are different, but the barrel is the same, it can only be shot with a soft bullet (with a small difference in diameters) or a shot (with a significant gauge difference). You can even make a drum with different cameras in a circle. Just what will be the advantage?

            From the title in general it turns out that there should not even be a bicaliber, but a MULTI-caliber weapon. The concepts of "two" and "many" are not equivalent.

              It's just that the article does not mention that the characteristics of a bullet and the characteristics of a cartridge are two different things. smile

                Just the characteristics of different cartridges of the same caliber are not related to multi-caliber wink

    I don’t see the point in so many calibers in one pistol. One caliber for the eyes is enough for them to shoot each other! fool

    Yes, there will be no advantage, it’s clear! Apparently designed for American dibiloids who can give a kidney and buy such rubbish! fool

    An unusual revolver will soon enter the American market

    And what's so unusual? request
    Such a concept was back in the 70s with the French Manurin. The same .38 and .357 and replaceable drum under 9x19.

    Doubtful product for a limited circle of consumers. Probably through the "store on the couch" they will sell, convincing the "fans of weapons" that for shooting at the shooting range and shooting at maniacs you need a different caliber and always on the same base, and having two barrels of different calibers is not aesthetically pleasing ... :-)

    Strictly speaking, this revolver is not multi-caliber, but multi-cartridge: that is 357, that 38, that 9x19 (luger) is all 9 mm.
    What for? It’s also clear: the price of cartridges is very different: the cheapest 38sp is $ 0,45, and 357 mag is 0,7. $, but 9x19 luger - 0,15 $. There is a difference? You can shoot cheaply. Taurus is a good company, civilian-sporting guns are great specialists. True nirazu is not cheap.

      Isn't Taurus the Brazilian company? One American of Soviet descent said that Taurus is a ram, of the revolvers the best are Smith and Wesson, though this was said about the Colt platform 1911.

    You are not supposed to, you shoot each other. So the news is not for you. For you, a new scarecrow from the quenched Makarov from Izhmash for 17 mowers. Not ripe yet to own real weapons.

    In my opinion, revolvers under the .410 cartridge are much more interesting. Only for some reason they are not made with the barrel at the bottom of the chamber. Or I have not met such.
