No longer made in stainless, but the 65 is essentially the same gun in .357 and still made in blue and stainless.

    Plus you can find them for $320 brand new, what's not to love. A little more and you can get a 65.
    Please tell me where I can find a new model 82 for $320! I bought one for just under $200 in 1978, but it's my mom's gun now. Do the new ones still have the firing pin on the hammer, or have they gone to a transfer bar mechanism?

    The 82 has been a bread and butter gun for Taurus since 1971!!

    I've got a stainless steel model that is only a few years old. It's part of the CCW carry rotation.
    you mention you use it in your ccw rotation, does it have the 4'' or the 2'' barrel?

    Can't go wrong getting a Model 82.

    I've said it before...Everybody should have one! (Of course, I also say that about a Model 85, Model 66, Model 65...)

    There's a couple on GunBroker with $340 Buy Nows, but if you really scour the Earth and the internet you can turn one up for a little less. After I bought my 82 (lightly used for $200) I saw brand new ones from online dealers for $320.
    Taurus M82 38 Spl : Revolvers at GunBroker.com

    Might want to move on this one, $370 with free shipping, brand new. Not affiliated with the seller just trying to help out. The free shipping alone is worth the look, since unless you find one for sale at a gun shop, you're going to have to pay someone to ship. If you have a good dealer with a fair transfer fee you'd be in under $400 for a NIB 82.

    It has a 4" barrel.

    I've been using a discontinued Bianchi 100 made for the S&W 13. Bianchi has a model 6 nowdays.

    Call me an old fart that can't make up his mine, I traded my SAR B6P for a new Taurus 85. I decided on the 85 because that is what I had before I traded it for the B6P.

    Another reason why I chose the 85 over the 82 is that the 85 is more compact and easier to carry concealed.

    I have had four semi-auto piston now, and I still can make myself like them. I guess I'm just an old school revolver person

    Yup. Gotta go with what works for you. Nice job.

    While the 82 is a fine revolver portability is a issue.

    The model 82 is a great choice. I plan on adding one to my collection. Only deal breaker for me is the lack of adjustable sights.

    I believe the 82 is standard issue sidearm for the Singapore and Indonesia police forces.

    I have a 4" model 82 Stainless with Hogue wood grip. It has over time graduated to my favorite primary carry. It NEVER FAILS! Its easy to clean, looks good, VERY accurate, goes BANG EVERY TIME! What else do you need? The only draw back is, with 2 speed loaders on strong side it is heavy.. But what would you expect from a tank?
