looks to be in better than most, condition...most likely a old woman's gun ..that she carried to Church Sunday mornings....only if it was sunny outside...


Let me see your guys Model 80's !!!

Well I feel i paid premium..I spent my nest egg I was saving for a M405 or a 445....but I'm happy ..I was looking at those Retired Foreign Police M82's and I ran across this ..late bid and POW !

Its mine...I think it will be a cool Wadcutter gun !!!! Can these handle +P ?? I have a buddy that handloads 148gr wadcutters +P ..they are super accurate out of his Model 10

I am not a fan of revolvers, but that thing is sexy for sure. Congrats on that man.

No +p sorry, if you call Taurus they will tell you this as well. I was looking at the cylinder and star/extractor assembly and the machining on that looks WAY way better than my new SS M85. Like night and day.

Too true. 110 gr. standard pressure ammo for that baby or any standard pressure ammo.
Wadcutters, Federal Nyclad 125gr. round nosed ammo, or something like them should be okay for that puppy.

I'd rather not shoot +P anyway.. especially for pinking.. I have a few hundred rounds or so, of standard pressure 158gr SWC laying around ,sounds like what this baby will be feeding on besides LWC

Much better. :)

I just got a used Taurus 66, 6 inch barreled gun, off of Gun Broker and what did not show up was the gun needs a thorough cleaning inside and out!! :) Ah,well. That's what I get for looking only at fuzzy poor cell phone pics before buying. :)

Other than that the gat is in very good condition.
