What is with the ported barrel extension? I have never seen anything like this on a revolver before.

I'm a little old fashioned when it comes to gun prices, and am sorta startled when I walk into a gun store and see what prices are now, but $370 for a Rossi seems a little high to me. You ought to be able to get a used Ruger or even a Smith if you're a little lucky.

However, you know what the prices are like in your area, but check around before you buy it.

Here it is. I picked it up tonight. I was wrong about one thing. It is a new gun, not used.

I have that same revolver, and it is made well. As I recall, they purchased some tooling from Smith & Wesson some years back, so some of their handguns have a Smith feel to them.

I have a Ruger 44 mag that I think is better made, but it needs to be as it is a mag.

Yes, Rossi and Taurus both were out source parts suppliers for S&W back in late 50's and early 60's. Then somewhere about 64 or 65 they acquired license to manufacture fire arms under their own brands.
