Local pawn shop has one that I want but he's had it for at least 6 months. I want to offer a lowball cash offer but what are these worth? I've never seen a used poly 85 locally and certainly not a white one. I'm thinking about $225 out the door cash, did you think that will get me bounced out the door?

Very limited edition for sure........


.....bought one last year from a familiar face that will remain nameless.


I will say that I was happy to pay far over that.

Fun fact:

The GRIPS from the M85 Protector Poly, the 605 Protector Poly, and the Judge Public Defender Poly are all interchangeable.

I bought a model 85 a year or so ago for under $200. I don't expect that limited production or it being a poly to add much of a premium to a Taurus handgun. If you want it, offer 90% of what you are willing to pay and if they won't sell it for what you want to pay walk away. They have had it a while if they don't sell, go back in a month and offer less.

If he's been sitting on it for six months, then ask him if he'll take $200 for it and settle for $225. Brand new 605PP's go for around $275, so I can't imagine that a used 85PP is worth that much, even if it is an oddball color.

I had one of those in white...shot 3 cylinders from it and it took me
2 hours to clean it. What a pain... trying to get the black powder
stains off of it.... traded it in on a stainless model 85 UL.

The only one I’ve ever seen is available for rent at the local range.
And as expected, it’s really dirty.
Looks like a nightmare to get clean.
