Never had a problem, and shot to POA.

I like it, but, it resides in the safe now,

if that is what you really want, get it. a bit more gets you a ruger. if you want a bit more of a well known name in revolvers, you could start with the 400 and save a bit each month.

but if you want it NOW (trust me, i understand ), it will likely be a good functional gun.

good luck gun shopping!

Usually the only big issue with many budget firearms form the makers like Rossi, Taurus, Bersa etc. is the resale usually crap. That's not to say they are not good guns. They just don't resell well.

Hey, I'll happily pay those crap rates. I like good guns that are cheap.

I had a Rossi 38 with a 4" barrel for a few years. Never had any issue and it's very accurate. good luck

exactly what i was trying to say, you just said it better!

the tried & true names will hold re-sale much better.

i recently sold a berretta after almost 10 years of ownership. i sold it for $150 less than i paid. what was that?....approximately 15 bucks a year to own it?

One of my newer fav carry guns is a Bersa UCP 45. The resale I'd probably take a bath but I didn't buy it for that. It feels good, shoots great. I couldn't ask for more. It fills a niche that I didn't have many to fill. I wanted something that I would not get so bent about if it got a little beat up when I"m out fishing. Thing is after carrying it around a little and shooting it a lot it just found itself in more places than out on the water.
...funny how things like that work out.

Moral of the story? Just because it's not a collector piece does not make it useless. And inexpensive does not always equate to cheap.
