    Rossi revolver w/ ported barrel?

    Anybody ever seen one? There is one up at the local store and I can't find any info on it. I have searched around trying to price check it and can't find the gun any where. I think the barrel is less then 3" and it is in .38. If anybody has any info it would be appreciated.

    You could buy a stock Rossi revolver and then send it off to Mag-Na-Port and have it custom ported if you really wanted to port it.
    They do the best and most effective handgun porting anyway.

    Thanks for the response, but the Rossi already is ported, I was just wondering if anybody had information about the pistol. My local shop has one used and I was trying to get some info on it adn price check because I have never seen a ported Rossi revolver.

    The current Rossi catalog doesn't list one.

    I know Taurus has ported revolvers in some of their magnum revolvers. I had one with an 8 3/8 barrel ( .44 Magnum ) and it felt like I was shooting a .38spl.

    To bring something to the table, I have the S&W 642-P "factory ported" as my EDC. I like it a lot and it does reduce the perceived muzzle flip, along with a couple other perks. I’ll post a photo or two, once it's finally done being tweaked.

    Ya, it is not my first , second, or even tenth choice for a EDC but I thought for the price it would be a good gun to carry while hunting, being that I wouldn't have alot of $ in it and I can bang it around alot. I was just curious because I have never seen a Rossi with a ported barrel and can't find any information on it. I just wanted to know if it was worth a second look.
