Just got back from the WANENMACHER'S TULSA ARMS SHOW Found a blue 3" M85 on the third row. It was one of the first guns I stopped to look at. Told myself I didn't need it, because I have a 3" M605. Decided to check out the rest of the show. Four hours later I was ready to go, but that M85 was still on my mind. Told my friend that I had to go back to see if it was still there, if so I was going to make the guy an offer. I was kind of hoping he had sold it or he wouldn't take my offer. Well it was there and he accepted. It has never been fired and all that Taurus grease has been cleaned off! I know the drill. Here are some pics.

Looks like a nice catch.
Congratulations!


I'll bet I'm not the only one who would like a range report when you get it to the range.

Love the 3" barrel. I like my six shooter M856 (six rounds in the cylinder), but would love it even more if it had a 3" barrel.

Funny how things work out sometimes. In your case it wanted to belong to you and was calling your name. Nice find, glad it worked out.

YES! A 3" M856 or 3" M606 would be ideal.
