Rossi, A surprise

I not long ago bought for a $100 a nickel Rossi M88 (by
Interarms) 2 " snubby, it's a really beautiful gun. probably from late 80's or early 90's I'm assuming. I don't think it's been shot much (until I put about 100 rds. through it) It's a great shooter and fun!! What is ya'lls opinion on this gun?

I have a Rossi 971 357 mag and it shoots fine. Its a very decent revolver.

It was built long before Taurus bought them.

I purchased that exact model in Alaska back in 1991, it came with an unfluted cylinder, a 2.5" barrel and a very sweet trigger. I used to use it for blasting red squirrels around my Goldstream Valley cabin. It was a very decent offering for $280.00 NIB, much nicer then the Taurus .357 competition which was I believe called a 669 of something like that.

Many folks back then thought erroneously that Rossi was an Italian operation, and it was not at all uncommon to run into some guy at a gun shop or a gun show referring to them as such!

An investment of $100 and 100 rounds through it. Put another 300 through it and you are down to a quarter a round. Sounds like a great deal to me. I would bet there are at least a half a million Glocks out there that do not have 2000 rounds through them so comparatively your Rossi makes more sense from a financial standpoint than some Glocks. And most importantly, I am thinking you are happy with it.
