Well, I finally drove down to Gander Mtn. and bought a used Taurus 85. Looks to be in geat shape. I wasn't sure when it was manufactured, so I called Taurus and they told me it was made in 1997. Do any of you guys own a 1997 Taurus, gun of course :)? Is so, was that a "good year" for this the model 85?

I've got the older model 85 in blued steel. I've got thousands of handloads through it with no problems.

Yep, when you get a quality revolver whether it be a 38 or 357 mag, under $200.00, that's awesome. I have yet to shoot my gun, I hope it doesn't make me look like an idiot :-\
Speaking of 200 dollar revolvers; I bought a new-looking 44 special Taurus five shooter. The gun looked great but shot 16" high at 25 yards and gave light primer strikes in DA that caused countless misfires. It's away at Taurus right now being repaired(I hope they fix it anyway). I'm glad you got a good one!
