I’m not going to lie. I was not excited about this little revolver when I got it (had kind of a low opinion of Taurus for a long time, based mostly on problems I’ve seen with auto loaders.).Those look really nice on the 85 and that design should help controlling recoil. BTW, your 85 is a beauty.
Suggest you try Gunbroker. Seller "AltamontFactoryOutlet" is their factory outlet store ("duh") for blems, old stock, and the like. I don't see anything right now for Taurus small frame, but it's worth keeping an eye on them.
This 85 model was my backup on the ankle as a LEO,with the same Pachy grips,made for great control and non slip,wish i never traded it off for the semi auto line . If your inclined i would be interested if you wish to sell It ?
Sorry don't want to sell, I've had this thing for over 25 years bought It new think I paid like $125 then.This 85 model was my backup on the ankle as a LEO,with the same Pachy grips,made for great control and non slip,wish i never traded it off for the semi auto line .

Altamont gripsDo you have a link for the grips and especially the holster? Both are very nice.
I have an early 90s model with a set of Barami Hip-Grips that are not legal with current Texas law. A set of boot grips or something like you posted would be nice.
these were designed to fit over a belt or pocket and leave enough of the grip exposed to draw. Current Texas law says a weapon must be carried in a belt or shoulder holster. A pocket holster would work, but I like your solution better.
I have these on a S&W 640-1.I've thought about some of the slimmer open backstrap wooden boot grips for mine. With my small hands and old school snubby experience, they really can't be too small. Thought it might shave an ounce, and an 8th of front to back length while also looking good.
