Hammer-Forged +P-Rated Frame
Transfer Bar Mechanism
Locking Key System
Recoil-Taming Rubber Grips
The Taurus Model 85 compact, 5-shot, self-defense revolver is an all-time favorite, built on a hammer-forged +P frame rated for duty use. Taurus packs the Model 85 with a combination of customer-requested features and pairs them with .38 Special +P ammo, making them powerful, easy to carry, and lightning-quick to use. The Taurus 85 models in blue or stainless steel make for uncomplicated carry and the total titanium models make for a lighter sturdier package. A transfer bar mechanism prevents the hammer from striking the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully to the rear and the Taurus Security System consists of a keyed, quarter-turn style socket-head screw which can be set to prevent the hammer from pivoting back into the frame, thus rendering the weapon inoperative.
