I just bought my first revolver. Cabela's listed it in their Fathers Day flyer as a Taurus 85 Ultralite/ hammerless, but it looks different than the 85 ULs I've seen available on-line. It's more of a recessed, or flush hammer than a concealed one. Taurus Mod. No. is 2-850121UL. What do you all think?

I just looked at an article posted by SgtKnuckles, and my gun has the same hammer as the Mod. 85 Police Undercover shown there.

Maybe I just haven't been paying attention. :rolleyes:

It's like a combination of an 850 and 851. It is quite similar to a police undercover minus the porting. Very interesting.

But Cabela's did have it wrong when they labeled it as hammerless in their flyer.

You've got a M85 with what Taurus called a Concealed Hammer. Or as many call it a bobbed hammer. Many people over the years (myself being one of them) have removed the hammer spur to aid in drawing the gun from a pocket. Your just looks much nicer than mine.

Thanks everyone for the replies and comments. I thought the gun had a nicer shape without a big hump on the back. :) It is strictly a DAO, no way to move the hammer without the trigger coming too. Weight = under 17 oz. empty and about 19.5 oz. loaded.

Just cleaning the easy spots like the frame and the rear of the cylinder improved the trigger pull a lot. Now I need to get to the range and see if I can hit anything with it. ;D
