    Welcome from Northern Illinois! I don't know about the heritage of your wheelgun, but many here swear that the 3" barrel is the best compromise in revolvers. My Dan Wesson Model 15 has a fixed 3" barrel.
    “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

    Welcome aboard! And yes, it is pretty unusual. Don't think I've ever seen one in person. Nice find; show us some pictures!

    Hi and welcome to the forum. Taurus made a boatload of model 85's over the years, in a several different barrel lengths. The 3" barrel length was rare among the 85's, but it doesn't mean it is more valuable. Have fun with your new 85!

    Only two defining forces ever died for you:
    1. Jesus Christ.
    2. The American Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, & Coast Guardsman.
    One died for your soul; the other for your freedom.
