Rossi .357 SS 6 in R972 Near Mint in Box  Guns > Pistols > Rossi Revolvers
Description: Here is a Brazilian bombshell that out-classes its more sturdy neighbors, the Tauruses, by feel and finish. Both Tauruses and Rossis, like this Model R972, are most directly descended from Smith & Wesson design. This 6 inch stainless .357 Rossi, however, has some strong influence from the Colt D Frame Revolvers, especially the Diamondback. Its smaller, lighter .38 Special Counterpart, the Model 851, even has a vent rib like a Diamondback. The .357 Rossis need the solid rib for strength to stand up to the Magnum round. We traded this 972 from another dealer when someone robbed its entire rear sight assembly, and Rossi just now replaced the assembly for us. If this revolver has been fired at all since it left the factory to begin with, it was fewer than 50 rounds, and probably with no magnum ammo, because the frame top strap's under side next to the barrel's forcing cone has no evidence of any kind of blast cutting whatsoever. Cylinder rotation marking is only moderate, and there is a faint amount of whitening to the edges of the front sight. Other than those two aspects, we note no surface detractions. This revolver is in its factory replacement box, and it has both its keys for its patented Taurus internal hammer lock. Weight empty is 34 1/2 oz; action is traditional double and single action; sights are red ramp inlaid front and adjustable white outline rear; barrel is 6 inch solid serrated rib full lug; finish is entirely bright stainless steel. Note the very attractive, traditional Satin Stainless Hammer and Trigger. New replacement Pachmayr Compac grips put the revolver's appearance even closer to the Colt D frames, and they are ideal for shooters who do not have large hands. Replacement price on this revolver is $400 or more in our area if a person can even find one. We're offering this one, however, for only $ 369.95

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony. GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
