The Taurus Model 85s is a double/single-action revolver with a five-shot, stainless steel cylinder that readies five rounds of .38 Special +P ammunition for use when you need it most. Retaining all of the features you have come to expect throughout the years from a standard Taurus revolver, the new Model 85s blends power and practicality to create an ideal firearm for a range of shooting applications.
Though often overlooked, the revolver is an ideal choice for concealed carry and personal protection due to its reliability and ease of use. Not to mention the quickness and simplicity with which one can clear a fail-to-fire, something that can be completed with no more than a cock of the hammer or a pull of the trigger. Toss in five rounds of the .38 Special +P ammunition, and you are good to go.
The Taurus Model 85s, which is rated for +P ammunition, has the potential to pack quite a deal of power into a small package that features a two-inch barrel alongside an overall length of just 6 1/2 inches. This particular model features a stainless finish that protects it from rust and other corrosion. And because the revolver is built on a small frame, this particular Model 85s benefits from an unbelievably light weight of just 22.2 ounces. Coupled with the manageable recoil of the .38 Special cartridge, the Model 85s is easily managed by shooters of all sizes and skill levels. If safety is a concern, you will be pleased to hear that this particular model is equipped with the Taurus Security System, an integral trigger lock that, when engaged, prevents any functioning of the revolver. Included with every purchase are two keys, which can be used to engage/disengage the integral trigger lock. Other features include rubber grips and a notched rear sight along with a fixed front sight.
Best of all, the Taurus Ultra-Lite Model 85s comes with the Taurus Unlimited Lifetime Repair Policy. Taurus International has pledged to repair, free of charge, any firearm manufactured or imported by the company. For details, visit the official website of Taurus International.
