    Older Taurus 82

    I have just aquired an older Taurus model 82, 38 special. this is an older gun as it has the old Taurus markings on the barrell and wooden grips.it says"FORJAS TAURUS S A,P.ALEGRE-RS- BRASIL" on one side of the barrell and 38 Special on the other side. Anyone know how old this gun is and if it would be safe for the plus P rated ammo?I looked on their website and the new model 82's are Plus p rated but I dont know about this one , Any help is appreciated , Thanks .

    Try the serial number look up from Taurus. If it doesn't give you what you need to know, their phone number is listed on the page.

    You probably are already doing this, but I'd stand down on the +P until you find out. I'm going to guess it's not built to that standard.
