Taurus makes a quality product for the price. Cleaned the .38 and took it out to the range. Decent group at close range,about 20 ft. The grip that comes with it is ok. Likely get a grip that covers the last finger instead of smallest digit being wrapped around. I've had the Taurus 357 magnum stainless for 15 years and fires every time. (Posted on 4/25/2017)

Great little gun that eats +P ammo, locks up tight, shoots great at short distances but, just wanted more than five rounds of ammo.
Note: it is a reliable revolver and everytime you pull the trigger it's going to go bang! (Posted on 1/28/2017)
Able to get 2 inch groupings at 75 yds!!!! Review by Rusty
Quality

Not really but now that I have your attention let me tell ya about this gun.. Its great. No you cant get a 2 inch or a 20 foot grouping at 75 yards but it does what a snubbie is suppose to at close range. Got this thing for my wife 1st gun. Took it home, cleaned it and shot 15 or so rounds. gave my wife the rundown on how to hold, aim and index the trigger.. After about 10 rounds she popped a bullseye at 12 yards and was staying on target with a decent grouping.(keep in mind she is a first timer) This gun is perfect for a beginner in need of a defensive firearm. The rubber grip is just the right size and comfy. The recoil is not bad for the type of gun. And the overall build is very good. The finish however is a bit iffy and my only concern. It is the matt black type and im not sure how it will hold up over time. Great price for a great gun. (Posted on 1/20/2017)

Every site shows a dark blued revolver with a rubber grip and the numbers match. What you get is a mate black finish with a different style rubber grip. Taurus needs to update the information for this model. I bought this with the black finish and like it. People need to be aware. (Posted on 11/5/2016)

Great value in a small revolver Review by Easyrider4
Quality
Price
Value
I have a stainless Model 85 that I have carried and qualified with for over 25 years. It was a better revolver than the S&W Model 60 I had been carrying back then. So when I saw these "lifetime guaranteed" black models at a great online price I bought one to test for a concealed carry family member to start with. Out of the box the action and cylinder release are a bit stiff but practice and use will loosen it up. This gun was such a popular revolver ( not a "pistol") for a new shooter that I bought another when the price special came up again through RK guns. I recommend this as probably the best quality snubnose 38 for the price and the best simple starter weapon for the new concealed carrier who has not carried handguns before. (Posted on 5/29/2016)
Just like old times. Review by Brad

This is the third Taurus 85 I've owned; it has a different, matte black finish---still 5 shots like the first two. The only difference was the locking "safety" mechanism (To meet new federal laws.) It's small, easy to carry concealed, has the standard spongy Taurus rubber grips (they help with the recoil, as the grips are pretty small. For self-defense I load it with wadcutters, but it will accept +P loads if you are so inclined. Nice little pistol; because of the short barrel, you need to practice if you want to be accurate. Without much effort I was getting three-inch groups at 50 feet, which is good for this type of pistol. All in all, a good gun, and a great price. (Posted on 5/22/2016)
Decent for Price Review by Wailing Dingus
Quality
Price
Value
The gun functions as expected after ~250 rounds, not exactly a large amount, but it hasn't lost timing or anything yet. At least as good as a comparable gun from Charter, though heavier and less ergonomic than it's Ruger and Smith & Wesson counterparts.
Price notwithstanding, I prefer Ruger's LCR, but at nearly half the price, Taurus's offering of this small revolver makes it competitive, but most importantly, it works.

My biggest gripe is that the gun pictured here as of 5/21/2016, is not the model 85 that is shipped to stores. The one pictured is blued, the one shipped is parkerized. (Posted on 5/21/2016)

Purchased this model when it was on sale, plus had a Taurus rebate of 25 bucks! Pretty good shooter out of the box. I prefer a softer trigger in my guns, and purchased Wolf trigger and hammer springs. Hammer spring turned out to be too light, and got one FTF, so changed back to the factory hammer spring. Runs where I want it now. Added Hogue grips, but they are a toss-up with the Taurus grips. Actually like the Taurus grips a bit better. If you're looking for a snubbie, you won't go wrong on this one. (Posted on 2/4/2016)
Nice piece for concealed carry or the nightstand Review by MikeyB55
Quality

I have owned one of these Taurus model 85s for about 3 years, and have put 3-400 rounds through it. It has never failed to go bang when I pulled the trigger. It is very lightweight and small and fits my average sized hand well. Rubber grips cushion against recoil. Accuracy is 3"-4" at 15yards for me, which is more than adequate for this type of firearm. I like the fact that if needed it can come into action quickly without the need to rack a slide or disengage safeties, etc. (It does have the Taurus key-lock feature if you want to use it.) This piece is my night stand companion. I would recommend this revolver. (Posted on 1/26/2016)
