With just one look, you'll see why THE VIEW™ is clearly one of the most ground-breaking firearms Taurus has ever conceived. A radical departure from your typical snubnose .38, THE VIEW takes form and function to an entirely unprecedented level. Its exclusive clear-view Lexan® sideplate reveals the intricate inner workings of the firearm, while its distinctive contoured grip and frame ensure a remarkably slim profile. Exceptionally accurate, reliable and lightweight, THE VIEW is your ideal choice for discreet, comfortable everyday carry.
Ultra-fast. Ultra-reliable. Ultra-lightweight. The Taurus 85 View is our lightest firearm yet, weighing just over 9 oz. It’s no wonder the 85s are our most popular family. We pack them with a combination of customer-requested features and pair them with the .38 Special - 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 Taurus Security System provides instant-ready defense with built-in ability to secure your pistol and make it inoperable at the turn of a key. When the Security System is engaged, the pistol cannot be fired or cocked and the gun's manual safety cannot be disengaged. As with our revolver Security System, the device is part of the firearm and cannot be lost, and the same special Security Key works for both the revolver and pistol Systems (two keys come with each gun).
To engage: simply insert the Key into the button on the rear or side of the pistol and rotate one-quarter turn clockwise. This engages the Security System. The manual safety cannot be moved and the trigger cannot be pulled. To disengage: simply rotate the key one-quarter turn back. This releases the Security System, yet leaves the pistol's manual safety in the "safe" position until you are ready to release it yourself and fire the gun.
