I just picked one up used and noticed it does not say +P on the barrel. I know the subject has been beaten to death and I will call customer service when they open monday but I wondered if anyone here had any info on the model.

It says "titanium" on the gun, not "total titanium". I don't know the exact model so I can't figure out the exact wt but feels just a tad lighter than my S&W 642. It is gold and has a ported barrel and a hammer. It also has the lock.

I've had a hard time finding used lightweight revolvers around here and got this one on a whim. I already had the sideplate off and I was surprized at how nice the innards looked! The trigger pull is lighter and shorter than the smith. It looks like it's seen some carry and the sideplate screws had some rust on them, I think I should replace them just to be sure.

I'm just wondering about the differance in the ones that say "titanium" and the ones that say "total titanium".

Sounds like I have the same gun as you. If the cylinder is also goldish in color than the weapon is indeed Total Titanium. The actual barrel is an insert made of steel and it has a steel hammer, trigger and some other internal parts. It's a nice gun that I've had for about 6 or 7 years and carry very often. BTW the gold color will wear, but looks very cool with older Taurus wooden grips that have the gold Taurus logo.

The gun is rated +P.

Thanks for the info! I was comparing the S&W 642 and the taurus and the barrel insert for the taurus is much thicker. I would post pics but my camera is down. It looks pretty bling, maybe I will wear it as a necklace! :p

I hope it shoots good. The finish looks more like bronze than gold but I think it's kind of neat looking.
