Taurus went into business making quality copies of Smith & Wesson Revolvers, and they have improved their art through the years to the point where the descendant excels above its ancestor. After the flurry of firearms sales died down in 1982, and prices began deflating, Taurus used the lull for innovative purposes. After years of following their Smith & Wesson ancestors, Taurus began taking a leadership role. This Taurus model 85 Ultra-Lite represents Taurus's leadership, and others' following, to use technological advances in steel work and investment casting to bring the Chief's Special class of revolvers to a state of withstanding .38 Special +P proof loads. Smith & Wesson itself lagged for almost 10 years before following suit, and that only under pressure from its Brazilian offspring. This is the lightweight, blue steel frame Model 85 Taurus, product Code 2-850021UL, manufactured in Brazil for Taurus International in Miami. It has an all steel, full lug 2 inch barrel. Capacity, of course, is 5 rounds; fixed notch rear sight and blade front sight atop a matte finished sighting plane for diminished glare; bright blue steel frame; case colored MIM type hammer and trigger. The hammer strikes a floating firing pin, and in addition to the transfer bar internal safety, this revolver comes with Taurus's patented and inconspicuous hammer lock with two keys. Grips are pliable semi-pebbled rubber combat with finger grooves and faint palm swells. At 17.5 ounces, the grips along with the steel frame make for an optimal combination of lightness and maneuverability. Pricing on the standard Model 85 in our area is upwards of $400, if a person can even find one. We’re offering the 85 Ultra Lite in the photos, however, or one of its identical mates for only $ 289.00 Not transferable to civilians in Massachusetts. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $10 lower 48; $30 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, USPS Priority Mail, insured with Delivery Confirmation.
