    I have one that was my fathers and passed on to me. 5 shot wheelgun that works ok as far as I can tell anyway. To me they are just a small revolver as I really don't know a lot about them....if you already have it-enjoy it!!

    My first revolver was a compensated Stainless Rossi M971 .357 mag. If I'm not mistaken it was a 4". It had rubber grips and was very accurate. The compensator made a huge difference when shooting .357 but made the barrel too long to carry. I could hold it up to a S&W and they were twins. It was a stout pistol and held up fine for 10+ years and probably 1000 or so rounds. The thing I remember most about it was that it didn't splatter hot metal all over the shooter's face like the Taurus my dad had. I ended up letting my brother borrow it for a cross country trip and it was stolen from his car at a truck stop in Kansas.

    I like that they have the firing pin on the hammer where it is supposed to be.

    I have a Rossi 6" revolver in .357 Mag, however I usually shoot .38 Special with it. I put some rosewood grips on it, that I found on Gunbroker. So far, I'm happy with it.

    I've had 2" in .38 spl for about 20 years. In terms of fit and finish it's not the equal of a Smith, but it was only $149 NIB and has given me no trouble. All in all, a good value.
