    I've been cruising a local shop pretty regularly since before Christmas in the hopes of finding something different. I missed out on a nice S&W revolver they had right before the holidays because I waited too long.
    So, today I decided I wasn't going to wait again if I found something interesting. As it turns out, they had a gun for sale on consignment that was pretty unique, and I couldn't pass it up.

    I picked up a Rossi M988 Cyclops .357 with an 8in ported barrel. It's been shot a little, but its in great shape. Locks up tight and has a pretty nice trigger. For $299 I figured it was worth picking up.

    I can't take a pic right now, but here's one from the net just like it (except mine had a built in rib for a scope mount):

    Nice looking Revolver. I thinking my next purchase will be a revolver as well. I'd like a .45 6 shooter, but not nearly that big, im thinking 4 inch barrel

    Those Rossi revolver look and feel very nice. Many times, I had thought about getting one just like yours years ago, but just couldn't pull the trigger. Something about Taurus and Rossi that just pushed me away.

    Congrats on yours.:cool::wavey:

    Never seen one of those before........very interesting.

    For $299, I don't see how you could go wrong!
