Model 85 Ultra Lite - Is it +P?

Hello All,

I just purchased an 85 Ultra-Lite that was listed as +P on the sales tag but does not list +P on the box or on the gun. Also, as I was leaving the store, the range officer that I speak to regularly said to make sure I only used standard pressure rounds.

The UPC Code is: 7-25327-32043-2 :confused::confused:

Does Taurus make any 38 Special revolvers that are not +P?

I love the little fella…

1) The double action trigger pull is smooth and the single action is crisp and clean
2) The recoil is minimal considering its size
3) At 7 yards (single action) a five shot group leaves a ragged hole with an occasional flyer
4) It is much more enjoyable than either of my 9’s

I had a Taurus CIA .38 several years ago but like the 85 much better.
