MindInChains: This was my first pistol I bought I love this gun
cronos222: I have a Rossi 851 . This is a four inch barrel , 6 shot revolver in .38 special with adjustable sights and I love it . More accurate than you would think . The first time I shot it was at the range at 7 yards and I grouped the shots so close and on target that I never did touch the sight adjustments . Awesome gun .
buffalo bison: I have this exact gun. I want to get some wooden grips and bought some that turned out to not be the right size (rookie mistake) Anyone know where I may be able to buy some for this gun
orlos The Druid: That pistol was made by request to be sold ONLY in Academy Sports Stores.
I too own that weapon, and the one thing Ive learned about it is.....the more you work it, the smoother it gets.
Corey Douglas: I would think the weight of the gun would have a lot to do with the low recoil, I have never shot a revolver with bad recoil, even .44 magnum.
Nicholas Mathis: I'm thinking of buying this revolver for range shooting and home defense how is the accuracy on this revolver
James phillips: I have that pistol an it shoots great,glad I bought it for sure.
CSX Productions: Rossi's prices just went up! Buy now while you can!
Dougie Douglas: $250! I could get a used S&W .38 for $250 and a used taurus .38 for $180, you should shop around more buddy. I've seen these (very used) for $120, the awesome thing about a very used .38sp? just get some rust and bluing remover and re-blue it, good as the day it came out of the factory for only about 20 extra dollars given you have no pitting in your bore or cylinder and you still have rifling, but they don't usually try to sell them if the bore is shot!
928gto: Had the wife hold a pretty equiv. of this in S/W atthe store yesterday; snubbier nose though. How is this pistol for the ladies to handle, 3"BBL is alright? not too heavy likely, huh? Want a .38+p for her in the house for home defense in event of home invasion robbery for instance.
Anyone had thier lady fire off one of these in +p....complaints? What's a decent current pricing on this guy
Leon Grickis, Jr.: I just bought one of these beauties yesterday...great price, well balanced and the tac grips are an awesome bonus...
Peidmonte89: If it has a 4" barrel its still called the R351 but it is a bit different. Its the full size version with rear sights. I have the snubby and I think I may get the 4" one for when I open carry.
Peidmonte89: no, like he said its an R351. I have the snub nose version and love it to death. The m38 is an older Rossi and I think they do not have a warranty. Stick with an R351 so you can get Taurus' life time warranty.
Serrgio45acp: Is your Rossi gun model m38?
angelo soriano: 38 spl.cartridges are not foreign made cartridges you can get them anywhere, so i dont know where you live but if you cant find 38 special cartridges where you live then you may want to relocate to a city that has a wal-mart and you will find more 38 spl catridges than you can dream of at very reasonable prices.enjoy your revolver im a rossi 2 inch 461 owner myself. i would recomended .
kyle gebhart: i think newer ones are rated for +P but i have one thats about 20 years old that i know isnt rated for those.
CSX Productions: Nice piece. I just picked up 2'' version.
mujdatozc: hı can ask something. Please help me my friend. S&W 38 special In what year were produced. How many meters effective range. Which one should I use the best bullets. thanks.
ThePatrick6122: This will make a great first revolver for myself.
CSX Productions: Nice piece. I might be buying the 2'' barrel version next month.
