Got my Rossi 511 back from repair,,,

A few years back I obtained a Rossi 511 in .22 LR,,,
It's a very close clone of the S&W Model 63.

I got it for a song,,,
I paid $75.00 for the little gun,,,
Then the guy bought a camera from me for $75.00.

It did have one problem though,,,
The ejector star had one stripped spoke,,,
That essentially made the gun into a 5-shooter.

Long story short I finally found a smith with parts,,,
He replaced the cylinder, tuned the action, and sent it back for $150.00.

I received it back on Thursday,,,
I took it to the range this past Saturday.

It was $150.00 well spent,,,
The little shooter works just fine,,,
And the newly tuned action is very smooth.

Here is a comparison picture of her and her Model 63 cousin.

All told with repairs and shipping I have $275.00 in her,,,
With gun prices like they are nowadays,,,
This is a bargain handgun.

I - B - Happy!
