Crap....I meant to put it in the revolver section and failed to do so. Please forgive my ignorance on this mistake, my apologies.

I was hesitant on even starting this thread, knowing the conditions of what I had just came across. Stainless steel with Pachmeyer rubber grips and about 70 rounds shot through it, $225. I didn't figure it would last very long and I was correct. I'd still like any information that anybody may want to offer, I have searched the internet and from what I can tell it seems to be a pretty decent gun. But I would still like to here from members here, people I already trust even though I'm still fairly new. Nice looking gun for sure in my opinion.

I cant speak for their handguns. But my first gun was a lil rossi single 20ga, its a great little gun. Kicks like a mule though. I would go ahead and get them. Even if its not a great gun just buy bulk 38. And see how fast you can shoot

In this particular instance, I'm kicking myself for not buying first and asking questions later. 7" barrel, stainless, rubber grips, beautiful. He had it listed for $225, the guy that bought it gave him $275 (guess he thought it was worth more) and while signing paperwork, another guy told the purchaser he would give him $350 cash right then. Ha. Crazyness. Shoulda/coulda/woulda.....been there, done that before so I'll get over it.

A friend just bought a Rossi snubby stainless for $100 with a holster. It seems to shoot ok. But I guess we are snobs as neither him nor I liked it much.

(GRUNT!) There- moved the thread for you.

AT ONE TIME- Rossi was a fairly cheesy handgun. However, IIRC, they are now owned by Taurus, and their quality has improved considerably. They are still not a "top of the line, best in show" handgun IMHO, but they are also not junk ( RG, Burgo, Clerke, Jennings etc)

I'd be happy to give him his money back & pay shipping
