Photo shows a barely used specimen of Taurus's descendant of the Smith & Wesson Centennial Model 40, the Taurus M850 CIA .38 Special 2 inch blue steel 5 shot revolver. For those not readily familiar with Smith & Wesson variant models, the original Model 40 was introduced in Smith & Wesson Company’s Centennial Year of 1952, a piece whose hammer was fully enclosed and thus would not snag on pocket fabric; and also could not be fired except with a deliberate double action trigger pull. Taurus led the way in the 1980s, producing steel and alloy small frame revolvers that could withstand higher pressure +P loaded .38 Special ammunition, and this one certainly will. It weighs in at a conservative 23 ounces, comfortable handling and more pleasant to shoot. Finish is entirely lustrous Taurus blue steel, with factory Taurus pebble grained combat boot grip; hammer and trigger are traditional color casehardened. All Taurus revolvers have internal transfer bar safety that prevents accidental firing if they are dropped. This one has its patented Taurus hammer lock placed on the back of the frame where the shroud part meets the grip frame, and it comes with one key. This is at the same time one of the most traditional and most advanced revolvers on the market. Here is what Taurus says about these: Welcome the Taurus CIA, the handgun designed for personal protection. It features a fully enclosed hammer. The .38 CIA functions smoothly in full double action. This Taurus comes to us from a good original home in Connecticut. Surface detractions are negligible, only faint rotation marking to the cylinder, but really no more than its new mates we have on sale. It is in its original box. We rate it as Near Mint in Box, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is certainly excellent mechanically; bore, cylinder chambers, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. From its superb condition and our knowledge of its exclusive owner, it has been fired fewer than 50 times. Replacement price in our area is well over $400. The Smith & Wesson 640s are $700 apiece or more. We're offering the 850 Blue Steel, however, Taurus product number 2-850121CIA, in the photos for only $ 249.00 Not transferable to civilians in California, District of Colombia, or Massachusetts. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $10 lower 48; $30 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, USPS Priority Mail, insured with Delivery Confirmation.
