Yes I know Taurus has a bad rep with a lot of people but there wheel guns seem to do a little better then the autos ..

Just saw KY gun shop had a model 85 with a 4inc barrel + gun safe for 280 ..

I am just happy they seem to be going away from locks like s&w now ..For all the crap they get they support the 327 mag and 44 sepcial market for a long time and do make some neat guns ..plus I mean for 280 and it works plus a basic gun safe would be handy for a car or such gun

I have used a few of there wheel guns for being cheep beaters and got to like them for that

Taurus doesn't need locks on their revolvers. Just shoot 'em and the cylinder will bind up enough to be considered locked. :danceban:

The Taurus M327 is an awesome little magnum revolver but it is currently out of production. Its J frame size but capacity is 6. They are actually pretty scarce right now - people who have one dont want to give them up. I believe they were under $300 NIB when in production, I paid $400 for mine about a year and a half ago? I've seen them around $500 now.

I usually stoke mine with .32 H&R magnums - hot little rounds in their own right but easier to control follow up shots. Its a great caliber - I've shot .327, .32 mag, .32 long, .32 short, and even .32 acp thru mine. I'd love to see it catch on. A buddy of mine said Henry is making a .327 carbine for 2017 but I cannot confirm - would be great to see more manufacturers making guns for this round IMO though.

As far as the 85 goes - its a solid revolver. J frame size, reliable - good to go. Some folks love the all steel frame - but for me its a tad heavy for an EDC .38 snubby. I dont mind the weight of the 327 since its a magnum revolver (same frame as the 85), but for .38(+P) I prefer my airweight S&W's. Of course the 85 is $100 less - so theres that.

I have used older 85 and such ..Basic crude guns but they work most of time and frankly I like the stuff as you dont mind beating it to heck and back or seeing it go into the drink of something
