    Oldmarine1968

    I was looking for information on when and why Taurus discontinued the Model 85 38 Special; and found my answer within 5 minutes. I've had a blued and a stainless Model 85 over the years but traded off both although I had no trouble with either. Just saw one (blued steel) at my local gun shop for $219.00 and just put it on layaway today. I wanted to pick one up to keep before the new ones are all gone as the warranty card in the box says it has a lifetime warranty. The 856's are nice but the one year warranty is a deal breaker for me.

    Welcome to the best gun forum on the web. The model 85 is a great revolver and you got a good buy. Show us a picture or a range report when you can. I currently have a 605, a beautiful old model 80 and a 4"627. All are excellent shooters.

    Welcome from Northern Illinois!
    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell
