I recently bought a used, but like new Taurus model 85 "Ultra-Lite Titanium" .38 Special caliber, 5-shot revolver with 2" barrel. I am really pleasantly surprised with the quality of the little gun and like it very much. It seemes to be lighter in weight than my S&W model 642, which has an aluminum frame. This leads me to wonder how many, and what parts of the Taurus are actualy made of titanuim? I read somewhere that the cylinder is titanuim and the barrel is titanuim with a stainless steel bore insert.
