NEW Pistols, SHOT Show 2014

Taurus is showing a new variation on their model 85 called the “View”.  It sports a translucent panel where the side plate would normally be, allowing a view of the mechanism as the gun is cycled.  Designed for concealed carry it utilizes an aluminum frame and a titanium cylinder to hold weight down.

Chambered  for 38 Special this ultra-light revolver holds five rounds.  Empty it weighs in at only nine ounces.  With a snub nose 1.41″ barrel a round but and spur-less hammer this revolver would be easy to carry.  The side plate is a gimmick but one that many shooters would like.  Top it all off with a double action trigger pull of 10 pounds.
