I have had a Model 85 38 special snub-nose but traded it off several years ago. I now own a new Model 856 38 Special snub-nose in stainless steel. In addition to the slightly larger cylinder diameter to accommodate that 6th round, are the frame dimensions the same as the model 85? Was the frame changed in anyway? If someone has both models and a micrometer, could you take the time to measure the width, frame height from top of trigger to top or frame, etc. to see if both the Model 856 and the Model 85 are indeed the same frame size. Apparently, from what I've read, the grips are the same.
