Taurus revolver question

Is there such thing as a model 87? I have a friend selling a revolver and the numbers stamped on the base of the cylinder opening is 870 over the letter E. It has a 3 to 4 inch barrel and is a 38 special. I'd say finish is 90%. Not a scratch on the grips which are wood and the taurus emblem is silver in color. It is blued. It has adjustable rear sight. We could not find this in a firearms book. Any ideas?? Value??

    What is the difference between the Stainless Steel Revolver and the Ultra-Lite Model of the same Stainless Gun?

    Is "Ultra-Lite" aluminum alloy or Titanium or a combination of several metals, (alloy cylinder or frame, steel barrel, what)? Thanks in advance!!

    I have a Taurus 44 mag revolver, and my question is this. As I look down the sights, I notice that the sights, along with the barrel assy. are canted a few degrees. How do I turn the barrel assy. so that everything is straight with the world? Thanks in advance.

    You don't! You use Taurus's great warrantee and send it back to them,while the gun is in the mail go buy a S&W, you won;t need a warranttee.

    Agreed. Definantly a job for a pro. Factory Warranty is best 1st option. Qualified gunsmith is next.

    Yeah, but from my own personal experiences with 2 Taurus revolvers, you will have to send it back 3 or more times and it may still not be repaired. Although each time you get it back, there will be an "offical" Warranty Station form stating it was fixed.

    I am planning to take Taurus to small claims court. Anybody got any advice or experience with doing something llike that?
