Rossi .38 Special Review




What do you think about this video?

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.

B r y a n Chambers: @Peidmonte89 huh no i don't think so maybe were you live California I'm guessing.. If you have someone maybe 30 yards out and the person is shooting at you and if you wanna make an accurate shot then you rooster the hammer back. So i don't believe that's illegal in anyway whatsoever.

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.

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!

1975acidburn: I have one paid 200$ new for it at academy price is 250$ now. The gun shoots great, easy to clean. Revolvers will never jam and no mags needed.

reynosamanA3: im gonna get one,i always wanted to shoot a revolver and this will be my first one.

Distortedtabs: good video. i just got a rossi 357 mag model r971 and i have been very impressed with it. i shot both the .357 and .38 out of it and it has a great feel. most rossi guns seem to come with the same grips that seem to fit everybody well. i think i will get this 38 for my girl. i find that most people that give rossi bad reviews, are people that never owned one.

NeverEnuffAmmo: @straightshooter90 No problem bro!!! Glad u liked it!!

sotto2: I have a stainless 2 inch barreled version of this, and I agree they are a good value. I've shot mine a fair amount (maybe 700 rounds or so), but generally with light wadcutter target loads, and even so, the gun is starting to loosen up. I think the metal they use for these less expensive guns is not the highest quality. YMMV.

B r y a n Chambers: @sbflash311 highpoint is a crapty gun i owned one got rid of it.. 9mm luger. And the mags are crapty to can't even do a mag drop.

unlitdarkness6: How would someone know if you roostered the hammer and shot but you????

Peidmonte89: I dont think you'll want to rooster the hammer back in self defense. It is illegal to do so and you can be arrested for it.

unlitdarkness6: and its going down in price btw. 229 at academy!

Nic LoGalbo: I own one. It's not a great gun, just great for the price. It does accept +P ammo. I've put about 100 +P through it without complaint. I really would recommend this gun if your looking for something affordable with good knock down power.

NRE56: my grandad has one of these in like a 1 or 2 inch barrel

rlta04: I agree.Perfect revolver to carry concealed.5 rounds is plenty .If you haven't hit your target by the end of 5 shots you shouldn't be using it for defense because you are a horrible shot.

chadreedfan221: @straightshooter90 My rossi looks like this but its got wood grips.Its a model 68 though.All rossi's look alike

straightshooter90: @TippmanWoodsBaller87 This gun surprisingly has little felt recoil. It's all about the grip. It's a great rubber grip that makes it feel very comfortable.

Konicava: Perfect revolver, dude that one made me gun horny. Amazing weapon.

CSX Productions: Nice piece. I might be buying the 2'' barrel version next month.

skyhawk17555: Mine is rated for +P but it says it will increase the barrel wear.

ThePatrick6122: This will make a great first revolver for myself.

dylan1094: @rattler316 Why would the gun not shoot?

NeverAgain1536: I have one that has numbers on the end of the cylinder anyone know what this means???

Sodnal: I own a Rossi .357 Revolver and love it. Inherited it from my late Father. Only thing is it has a long barrel (think it's 8 ") and I'd much rather have a 4". May purchase a retrofit barrel one day.

Uniform Tango 74: @straightshooter90 That's what I wanted to hear shooter90. Thanks man! Most appreciated.

James phillips: I have that pistol an it shoots great,glad I bought it for sure.

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

straightshooter90: @Nakanokalronin I know to use Double action in a CCW situation. I can shoot it either way. I'm not getting a bad technique. That was a pretty bad assumption.

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 .

Marqueezy9: Mines a 6 shot is it a diff kind?

kingd3001: whats up striaghtshooter get a question in terms of width what is slimmer the rossi 38 spl or the hi point c9

strathpipe: Jesus that was a bit long winded

CSX Productions: Nice piece. I just picked up 2'' version.

rattler316: Everyone has an opinion bro. But what I've learned is, if you're gonna buy a gun, don't settle for a cheap pos. Find a gun shop with a lay-a-way program, tell the salesman what you are buying the gun for, whether it be home defense or plinkering, and pay the money for a good gun. Last thing you wanna do is think about how much money you saved on your gun during a home invasion when it doesn't shoot and the gangbangers are raping your wife!!!

ayprincezz: hell yea bad ass gun also got mine at academy for 199.00 came out to 216.00 with taxes excelent buy and gun so peace...

Rook369: That's not a snubbie...good review though. I am going to get one.

CSX Productions: Rossi's prices just went up! Buy now while you can!

kingd3001: what's your opinion on the 2 inch barrel version

mickeylehuynh: "5 rounds is 5 rounds more than I ever shot at another human being and probably 5 more than I ever shoot" I like that statement.

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.

straightshooter90: @kingd3001 Haven't handled one myself. I think it would be a good choice as well tho. I think the only difference would be in the accuracy of it. Probably not a huge difference tho.

cocothebandit: The reason you can't find the 3" barreled model on the Rossi website is because the 35103 is a dealer special made only for Acadamy Sports 10,000 were made.

TippmanWoodsBaller87: hey i was thinkin about getin this gun, and i was just wondering how much more recoil does it have than a 9mm??

Uniform Tango 74: I was told that this revolver wasn't built to accept +Ps. Is this correct?

Nicholas Mathis: I'm thinking of buying this revolver for range shooting and home defense how is the accuracy on this revolver

temijin khan: is this gun worth $200 only? where can i buy one?

straightshooter90: rook369 it actually is a snubbie. Anything up to four inches can be considered one.
