I bought a rossi 357 snub nose at a gun show for 250 kind of a spur of the moment thing anyone have any experience with them. I will post pics later afternoon

You are going to get lot of people in here saying how the Rossi is sub standard and poorly made and it'll eat your young and all that negativity...but, i've owned one for several years with several hundred rounds through it without a single problem. In fact, it's my wife's concealed carry piece.

yup. I've owned one too, never had an issue with it. In fact the only reason I sold it was because I simply needed the money. I really liked it, carried it on pipeline jobs with me as a snake gun, loaded with ratshot. There is nothing wrong with it, the grips are pretty good, so enjoy your purchase and give us some pics. The only thing I didn't like was the little lock on the hammer, so I just didn't use the little lock.

I used to have the 462 stainless .357 snub and it was a fine gun,couldn't hit anything with it but it's finish and reliability were never an issue.

Okay made a quick run to the range to play with the new gun. Was a fun little gun and was more accurate than i expected. Made 3" group from about 10 yards so more than plenty accurate for a conceal piece and no jams or anything. Really glad i bought it!

seeing the picture just reminded me of how much I love those grips!! Out of the revolvers I've handled, which haven't been nearly as many as some people, I think that those are by far the best factory grips on a revolver (just my opinion) The reason I bought one those few years ago was because it was the only .357 mag in a small package that holds six and was in my price range-that I could find. Mine was stainless though.

Yeah it was really comfortable to shoot and the grips seemed to help with recoil alot. I feel like i got a heck of a bargain especially after i shot. I usually dont buy inepensive brands cause i usually feel you get what you pay for but i was proven wrong wih this gun

My wife took one shot and THREW mine into the woods. I had to go find it. The muzzle blast scared her that bad.
