Great revolver for the price! Grips are a bit small, but easy to swap out. Shoots 38 spl all day long w/o any trouble. Store was out of .357 ammo when I purchased, so no opinions on how it handles the big loads yet. Super Long DA trigger pull, but SA is as crisp as guns that cost twice as much! MSRP over $500, so you can't beat Buds price. BUDS was GREAT, quick ship, lots of local ffl's to choose from, GREAT PRICE! Super Fun gun for the money! At this price I probably should have bought 2 or 3.

2nd Bud's purchase... Quick, easy, trouble free.. Shipped with in 36 hours.. In my hands within 5 days... EXCELLENT TRANSACTION... Very pleased with Bud's service... The Gun... Inspection at FFL revealed no issues... Fit and finish are very good... Highly polished with no DULL areas that I could see.. VICE LIKE lockup. no movement of cylinder when cocked for SA shooting. SA trigger breaks clean with no creep or take up... Not sure the weight but it is not much. DA trigger pull is long but goes smooth. This is NOT a TUNED S&W, COLT, or RUGER trigger but right out of the box its as good as any of those I have tried. I am used to a SCCY CPX2 so in comparison its NOTHING. Factory grips are my only issue.. When shooting 38 special or 38+P ammo they are fine.. Gun can be shot with ease using one hand. 158gr reloads at 900FPS feel like a cap gun going off... +P's have a little more POP to them but not much... Grips work ok for these kinds of rounds.. FULL HOUSE 357 rounds are a different story.. Grip does not let me get my whole hand with all my fingers planted well.. My pinky kinda hangs half on/half off... Only found 1 company that makes fully inlet wood grips for this ROSSI revolvers.. They are in Thailand.. Reasonably priced but shipping takes several weeks and I am not a patient person... S&W K frame grips can be altered to fit if you so choose. Range trip just to check functionality was great... 75+ mixed rounds.. Reloads, 38's, +P's and 357mag.... all shot well... was able to keep all shots center mass at 25 yards on a torso target right out of box. Practice will certainly improve accuracy. 357mags loads were a little hard to eject but all other just about fell out of the cylinder when gun was turned muzzle up... I figure this will improve with rounds down range. This gun is not going to be used for CCW was quick reloads are not needed... Overall.. a very good buy... ROSSI lifetime repair/replace warranty so no need to buy the one Bud;s sells...

Beautiful revolver! The only thing I'm not totally happy about is the cylinder (it's a little sloppy uncocked but it locks up tight when cocked). I fired 2 1/2 boxes of .357 Magnum with no issues. The DA trigger is a little stiff but the SA trigger is crisp with no slack or grinding (feels like a tuned/custom trigger). I love the "old school" firing pin that's in the hammer because it usually affords more positive ignition than transfer blocks. Make sure you tighten the 3 screws on the side plate (one is under the grip) and the cylinder ejector rod (L/H threads) . . . shooting .357 Mag. will jar them loose. The HK #10A Speed Loader is correct for this revolver but the grip relief isn't enough for smooth insertion. Also, the grips will only fit small hands . . . even a lady's small hand w/ long fingers is too small. I suspect that Pachmyer or Hogue will have something bigger so I'll need to look around. The gun is pleasant to shoot and beautiful to look at . . . and it went BANG every time I pulled the trigger. However, I give it only 4-Stars because of the kinda' sloppy cylinder and the small(ish) grips. Thanks Buds!

Great gun for the price. Took it out of the box and went out and killed a hog with it. Very accurate. I would recommend this gun to anybody.

Why spend $500+ for a S&W or even more for a Ruger. This is a very reliable & accurate .357 magnum. Fits comfortable in the hand. I just love the wheel guns.
