Taurus Model 85 Ultra-Lite 38 Special +P Matte Stainless Revolver Ultra-fast. Ultra-reliable. Ultra-lightweight. It’s no wonder the 85s are the most popular family from Taurus. They pack them with a combination of customer-requested features and pair them with the .38 Special +P ammo – making them powerful, easy to carry – and lightning-quick to use. To many of our friends in Law Enforcement, these are must-have revolvers.

The sample rifle has a handsome wood buttstock and forearm, with checkering on the latter. The bluing is a deep black, with the metal well-polished. The fit and finish on the rifle are excellent. The buttstock wears a very good-looking curved steel buttplate. The front sight is drift adjustable, and the rear is also drift adjustable and elevation adjustable using the step ladder system. The rear sight notch on the sample rifle is miniscule, but I like it that way. It leaves the shooter the opportunity to fashion the notch to his own desires.

The trim barrel measures twenty-six inches long, and is just over five-eighths of an inch diameter at the muzzle. The Taurus website lists the weight of the Thunderbolt at 130 ounces (eight and one-eighth pounds), but that is incorrect. The .45 Colt Thunderbolt weighs in at six pounds and thirteen ounces, and balances just ahead of the trim little receiver, which is just over one inch wide.  Overall length is forty-three inches. I really like the way that the Thunderbolt handles.  It is an easy rifle to shoot, and recoil is minimal.
