Better than a J Frame
I know many that are big SW fans will not admit it. The post 80s SW do not have the fit and finish that this Taurus had and it runs flawlessly. I have since traded my 3 J frames and will be looking at other Taurus revolvers this has really made me a major fan of Taurus it was more accurate than I expected and it a true winner in my book.

Great Little Revolver
I have now purchased 3 of these little revolvers (one for me and the other two were gifts for my Wife and Mother) two are blue steel (looks black) and one of the poly style. All 3 have functioned flawlessly and seem as accurate as you would expect from a 2" revolver. The fit and finish was very good and they all locked up tight. the triggers on all 3 were better than expected after reading other reviews online they are a little long but not so bad that my wife and mother find them hard to pull and all three broke cleanly... I would say that if you were in the market for a good quality affordable 38 special revolver stop looking and buy this one for the price it can not be beat PERIOD.

Worth every penny though not a snub nose that would be great for the apocalypse.
Shortly after getting my Model 85 for $160 (after a $40 rebate) I plowed 100 rounds through it without any issue or hiccup whatsoever. It is a sturdy lightweight ergonomic revolver with average accuracy for its barrel length. While it is well-built especially for the price I just can't imagine it lasting through thousands of rounds without something going wrong. Even holding an unused 85 and S&W 637 in the store it is easy to tell that a S&W is built better. Of course a S&W is at least twice the price so the Taurus Model 85 was a much better choice for my uses: Having a gun to keep in the car and occasionally concealed carry while having an affordable revolver to use on the range every few months.

If you need a gun to take to the range twice before letting it rot in the safe for a decade in hopes that it will be great to use for a Mad Max-type apocalypse then this may not be the one for you.

Fun little revolver
My wife and I putting 3 boxes of shells though it and enjoyed every minute of it. It fit awesome in both our hands. She has small hands I large the grips work great. You can't beat it for the price. Great little gun.

Great revolver for the money
Accurate and reliable at least mine is. A fine backup gun or truck gun or boat gun or even primary carry.

best Bang for your Buck I've ever spent on a gun. $159.
I bought this after handling it in the store. I had been looking at it online for a few weeks. It feels good in the hand. The trigger is a little long but i can see a valid reason for that and it was light. My mother spent $70 on a trigger job for her smith and wesson 357 and she likes this stock trigger better. I also like the grip. I bought her a hogue grip for her gun and we both agree this stock grip is better. I dont know what else you could ask for at anywhere near this price range. Shoots great too for a 2" revolver. I'm gonna buy another one. I hope the stainless comes back in stock because I will certainly grab one .

Low cost respectable performance
I bought this gun primarily because of the price and my intended use. On my first trip to the range I was pleasantly surprised by the gun's accuracy and function. It may not be the quality or have the appearance of some other more expensive guns but it fires and is accurate.

very nice gun for daily carry
i have seen a few bad reviews on taurus revolvers but i have never got a bad one! i bought this model for $250 here at PSA. very fast delivery and the lowest price anywhere. this was a perfect choice for my mother inlaw that was looking for a budget home protection pistol. she is very happy with it. we shot it and it functioned in both actions without any problems. very good gun and excellent service from PSA as usual!

Cylinder won't rotate in DA mode. Taurus refuses to admit anything is wrong. Lifetime warranty is worthless.
