Has the lockwork on the Taurus Ultralite 5 shot snubby revolvers changed from what it was back in the mid 80s????

I've found a NIB Taurus Ultralite stainless 2" for 200 bucks out the door. If they have changed their lockwork to the S&W J frame style like Rossi has always used, I will buy this gun for a LEO backup. But if it's still the same cheesy type of lockwork that they've always used, I don't want it. Has anybody out there had the side plate off of a Taurus 2" Ultralite in the past couple of years since Taurus bought Rossi out??? If so what do they look like with the side plate off compared to a J frame or a Rossi???

Thanks 7th

I have no idea what was used befor on the Tuarus', but what is used now is something of a miniature nutdriver. Just behind the hammer is a screw that the nutdriver fits. A 180 degree turn (I think) and the screw backs out just enough to keep the trigger from working the hammer back. Turned the opposite way and it screws bak in to allow the trigger to work the hammer. Hope this helps.
