Taurus Offers Sizzling Summer Rebate Program

Up to $50 Back by Mail on New TX22 and Select Revolvers

Taurus has announced a promotional discount for one of the company’s newest and most innovative polymer-frame pistols. The Sizzling Summer Rebate program will offer consumers a $50 rebate when they purchase the groundbreaking TaurusTX 22 semi-auto .22LR handgun between July 1 and September 30, 2019

The new TaurusTX 22 is engineered to be an out-of-the-box competition-ready polymer-frame pistol. Chambered for .22LR, the TX22 was designed to serve as a high-volume, full-frame handgun for competition or for training.

Built around a striker-fire system, the TX22 features a crisp 5-lb. trigger pull weight and positive reset. This refined trigger works with an easy-to-actuate recoil spring and aggressive slide serrations to make operation easy for beginners or advanced shooters. Other features include an ambidextrous manual safety, adjustable rear sights, and a reversible mag release.

To take advantage of the rebate offver, visit TaurusUSA.com/TX22Rebate.

The Sizzling Summer Rebate also offers up to $30 back on the purchase of select Model 856 revolvers.

The 6-shot 856 line usurped the 5-shot Model 85 line in recent years, featuring a rugged compact frame, smooth cylinder operation, and ergonomic, soft-rubber grip that assists in quick target reacquisition for follow-up shots. The aluminum-frame 856 Ultra-Lite model is an especially easy all-day carry. Chambered for .38 Special, the 856 series revolvers are offered with conventional hammer or spurless hammer designs in DA/SA or DAO, respectively.

The limited-time rebate program provides qualifying purchasers of all matte black model 856 and 856 Ultra-Lite revolvers with a $25 rebate offer while purchasers of all matte stainless models can receive a $30 rebate. Like the TX22 offer, the 856 rebate is valid from July 1 through September 30, 2019.
