Rossi M971VRC .357 value

I have the chance to buy a Rossi M971VRC .357 with 4" stainless barrel. What is it worth?

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

Pass on it. Buy a Ruger or an S&W.

I agree with John S. Buy S&W or Ruger. 3rd choice would be a Taurus.

You just shot an unarmed man. Well he should have armed himself!!! Clint Eastwood.

I've owned and have praise for Ruger, Taurus, and Rossi revolvers. I own a Rossi now. It says "Made by Taurus" right on it. It functions perfectly and, despite being a 38 snubby, shoots well at the range at 25 yards.

So a Rossi isn't good enough just to have and I should spend twice as much for Ruger or S&W? I would have zero intentions of seriously putting any quantity of shots through it.

I can reccomend a GP100, as i have one. I looked at Taurus and Rossi, and the quality just wasn't there for me. But it sounds like you have already made up your mind.

You can buy whatever you want. You ask the question, if you didn't want honest opinions you shouldn't have ask the question. I spent a lot of time on the range as a police firearms instructor, I have seen good firearms and firearms that gave the owner problems to the extent of when the gun was shot a lot or was fired enough to make it hot it didn't function or broke. Rossi was one of those guns. I wouldn't own a gun I didnt believe was dependable. I don't consider handguns disposable and I would rather only have to buy a better made gun once, than a cheaper gun and have it break and then buy another. Like all advise you are free to take it or leave it.

Well John, you should be happy to know I didn't buy one. There were a couple at a public auction that all brought over $300.
