    Hi there.

    Iv recently bought the above gun from a pal.

    The switch thing will not release the barrel with the bullets in anymore, although it did release only once, in which iv taken out the bullets.

    Another thing is that the trigger wont pull easily, i think it struggles to turn the barrel? I mean i really struggle to pull the trigger...and it gets stuck aswell,which i then have to manually pull the hammer back and turn the barrel..

    Could someone give me any instructions to sort it?

    I dont know anything about guns, so please bare with me, thanx :)

    Not sure this fella was really a pal.

    If the cylinder latch doesn't work right and the lockwork isn't rotating the cylinder properly - you probably bought a paperweight. A Rossi is a budget revolver to begin with and getting it repaired will likely cost more than it's worth.

    It's VERY dangerous to try to fire a revolver with cylinder timing issues so I wouldn't try. This one needs to be looked at by a real gunsmith...

    I would highly recommend you take that Rossi to a gun shop/gunsmith. You "new" pistol has a severe case of Cylinder Binding. ***not good***

    First welcome to FTF, take some time and introduce yourseld on the new member thread.

    Second, considering your expereince with firearms take this pistol to a local gunsmith. Our advice is based soley on the information you provided and this pistols needs to be in the hands of an expereinced gunsmith to tell you what the issue is and if it's worth fixing.

    Sounds like the gun is trash. Bummer your first gun had to be this way. Good luck to you in the future if you do have an interest w/ firearms.

    By all means don't spend more than $150 dollars in repairs. The revolver is only worth around $250 or less used and only slightly more when new.
