Rossi revolver
Just bought a Rossi .357 magnum. Havent got to shoot it yet but the weapon feels really good in my hand and everything seems to work pretty smoothly. Anyone have any stories about Rossi revolvers? This is my first one. I have a charter arms .38 and a Ruger .45 lc as well as a few semi auto's, this is just my first Rossi and im wondering what to expect.

Thanks Hoss. I'm not familiar with the rossi but I wanted to bump the question up so he would get an answer.

Most will say a Rossi is a Taurus by another name but i've had issues with a couple of Taurus 6 shooters (had sum gud ones too) but the older Rossi's were very nice revolvers - IMO & personal experience of course :)

I had a Rossi 462,shot around 750 magnum rounds through it,it never had any problems,I just traded it off on a whim.I had 3 Bad Taurus revolvers but the Rossi was great.

Good to know. I'm not big on Taurus either I think they tend to over complicate their firearms. Not that I wouldn't buy some of them. I might break out a book and compare exploded views of a few guns from each company just to see how close they are and which looks better to me.

I got to shoot an older never fired Rossi .357 and it was pretty nice, my Uncle had it for years and forgot where he put it. After we shot it some he just put it back in the drawer......last I have seen of it.:(

Awesome! Thanks for all of the responses everyone. Might take it out to shoot over the weekend. I will let everyone know how it goes :)

Just got back from putting 50 rounds of 38 +p through my 10 yr old Rossi snubby. Never had a problem with it. Love that gun.
