Ultimately, my advice would be to spend the extra $100 and Buy a Smith & Wesson J-Frame!!! Great for ankle carry in a DeSantis ankle rig with calf support. A little too bulky for pocket carry, especially with the exposed hammer. I measured almost 0.007\" clearance between the cylinder and the barrel with a feeler guage, the Smith and Wesson J frames I had access to measure were around 0.003\" - 0.004\". The cylinder had quite a bit of slop in it and can be rotated quite a bit even with the trigger pull all the way to the firing position, thus allowing for misalignment between the cylinder and the barrel, sloppy machining. Fit and finish is acceptable. The anodizing on the frame has been durable. The bluing on the cylinder is poor at best, the cylinder lock has left nice scratches in the finish of the cylinder. VERY crisp single action trigger. Probably the most notable feature of the gun and one of the only praises I have for this firearm. Shoots ANYTHING you put in it. The ejector rod is a little short so some shells may be more difficult to eject rapidly if you\'re practicing reloading with a speedloader at the range. (requires you to point the muzzle up which is deeply frowned upon at most ranges). If all you have is $300 to spend on a wheel gun, buy a used J-frame.

I have several Taurus products and they are nice guns , however the last two purchases have left me wanting. This particular revolver is not the best quality there are several blemishes on the frame and the cylinder has what appears to be a rust spot on the edge and the trigger pull fells like I and crumpling up a ball of aluminum foil. At this point I will not be purchasing Taurus again. I am quite disappointed.

I have owned and carried this piece for a few years now and I have zero complaints. I disagree with the reviews that say that it kicks too hard, I find it very managable no matter what loads I use.

I purchased my 85UL two weeks ago. Finally made it to the range on 10/15/12. I put 50 rounds of remington umc and 40 rounds of independent fmj through it. The revolver worked flawlessly. Fit and finish is very good. Overall, I'm very impressed, especially for $330 (including the FFL fee). I highly recommend the 85UL!

Great .38 special and perfect for carrying. Got this item NIB from Buds for 319! Local shops were priced at 389... This was my first purchase from buds, and it will most definitely not be my last. I've fired 100 rounds so far and it has worked flawlessly. Great gun for the cash!
