I picked up a brand new taurus model 85 ss UL in 38spl.Decided to use it as my carry gun.well I aint happy with them.I carried it in a full leather holster and in 3 months the finish started comming off and pitting.Tried to contact taurus and have not heard back from them,its been over a month now.:thumbdown:

I went with an "Uncle Mike's" brand holster for my XD-40 on the advice of a friend of mine instead of going with leather. I've had no issues with the holster and use the XD for concealed carry. Can't understand (and sorry to hear) what happened to your pistol though. I have a Ruger Blackhawk that I've kept in the same leather holster for nearly 30 years. Thing is, I don't think I've put over 500 rounds through it in all of those years and it doesn't "get out" much. Thought of using it for concealed carry for oh maybe two or three seconds, 'cause it's kind of hard to conceal something with a 6 1/2 in barrel.
Could the leather have gotten wet somehow and the wet leather rubbing against the steel frame cause your problems? It's a thought . . .

I'd get it parkerized or duracoated.

Thought of that but its kind of strange how its only the frame.The trigger,hammer,cylinder,cylinder release and barrel have no marks

That would be fine,But I dont think I should have to pay for it to be refinished.2 reasons,#1,it was brand new and only carried for a few months.#2,it supposed to have a life time warranty
