    Default Rossi revolver recalls

    Listening to patriot channel on Sirius I heard an announcement from Rossi on all revolvers possibly failing a drop test. They could fire if dropped. I didn’t google up a link, I just wanted to pass it on.

    Rossi has issued what they term to be a voluntary safety warning for their .38 Special and .357 Magnum-caliber revolvers that may, under certain circumstances, fire if dropped.

    The warning involves guns made between 2005 and 2017 and covers models R351, R352, R461, R462, R851, R971, and R972 with serial numbers beginning with the letter Y, Z, or A through K.

    “Rossi is developing inspection and repair solutions,” says the company in a release. “Rossi will make every effort possible to ensure Rossi Revolvers will be inspected, serviced if necessary, and returned to customers in a prompt, timely fashion.”

    I've got a Rossi, but one that was made before 2005. It's been a good revolver and I have never had any problems with it. I think I paid about $189.00 for it sometime around 1999.

    I know what you mean about Taurus. I bought a 9mm revolver of theirs several years ago and what a piece of junk. I had problems with misfires right from the get go and with the ammo I always was using no less, so it wasn't the ammo. I was very disappointed and now it is just a part of my collection that I do not use.

    I shot a Rossi .357 , some 20 yrs. ago. It belonged to a friend who only owned that one handgun.
    I could barely keep the 6 shots on paper. ( same 15yds.☆ My Smiths and Colts were and still are tackdrivers)
    Rossi had sights that were greatly misaligned. One bad gun out of many mediochre ones?


    Hold my drink; and watch this.
