I have two .38 Taurus Model 85 small frame revolvers with 2" barrels; one blue and one stainless. They are excellent guns. I also purchased them both used and I know that Taurus will repair them for any manufacturing defects even though I was not the original owner. I also remember back in the early/mid-90s when Smith & Wesson was putting out revolvers with shabby fitting while Taurus quality was actually better. I know because I know and like Smith & Wesson too and I was really disappointed in them. I heard that Smith & Wesson has since improved, but Taurus has likewise stayed as good or better in quality and customer satisfaction.
