This is one of the classic square butt Rossi .38 Specials, the model 685 two inch square butt five shot Chief’s Special copies that began coming in with two inch barrels after Interarms began furnishing and pinning their own barrels in the mid 1980s. It is the classic form of the Model 68 type, and its only rival for being traditional would be one of the few surviving round butt variants that were imported prior to 1968. This 685 has pinned barrel, square butt grip frame, and Brazilian Goncalo Grip panels with the attractive black inlaid Rossi logo. Finish is Very Good by our estimate, with extensive gray coloration on the grip frame itself from carry contact. The frame proper and other parts are close to full strength bluing with light scuffs and white here and there. Counting the grip frame, we rate this little Rossi at about 70 percent. It is Excellent Mechanically. Timing is excellent, and the cylinder times on all five positions. Lateral movement of the cylinder is moderate with the trigger relaxed, and negligible with the trigger pulled all the way. Own this fine little classic Rossi for only $ 229.95

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.
