Nice. Those Rossi revolvers were great buys in the '90's.

OP - Nice plinker for a good price. I have a 70s vintage H&R 9-shot revolver in 22LR that I bought in high school. Carried as a snake pistol in the woods and while fishing.

A kit or tackle box gun is usually a small, handy .22lr revolver that's included with one's gear when out fishing, hiking, or out working on your land.

I like it. Nice trail or truck gun or a gun to have on your hip when fishing. I bought a similar use pistol a few months ago. I picked up an H&R model 732 in 32 long with a 3" barrel. I reload for that round so ammo is cheap for me.

I took it shooting and had a ball with it. Pleasant recoil but enough of a bump so you knew this was not another 22. Don't get me wrong. I like the 22s also. The same day I shot the new 32 long I also took my S&W model 34 with 4" barrel and shot it. I had forgotten how much fun that gun was and how friggen' accurate it is. What neat gun. I hope your Rossi serves you well.

Great Score

I have the Taurus 94, I think it is the same...wish I had your hardwood stocks.

Small, accurate, two men and a boy DA trigger pull tho. No real "fix" as the issue is the frame size.

All the J frame size .22's have a heavy DA trigger, I just.thumb cock mine most of the time.

Coincidence I paid 249 at the LGS for mine too.

Oops, looked at your pic again, mine is a 9 shooter, not the same.

Congrats on a excellent find. I was given this Rossi in 32. Smith and Wesson Long, from a friend whose father had passed away. I honestly do not think he had fired the gun. Sweet little shooter. Very Accurate in single action. Has a hard double action but no big deal.

Thanks for all the positive comments. Gun is supposed to arrive today at the FFL dealer. Hope I can pick it up this afternoon, if not, then tomorrow.

Just picked up the new little Rossi. It is in mint condition, perfect bore and cylinder. Glueing is about as good as it gets for a Rossi, grips perfect, and it locks up tight. Trigger is even pretty damn good. $249.00 well spent if it shoots where it is aimed.

Nice addition, I love the little kit gun size revolvers. While the 22LR guns are fun I also prefer the 32Long revolvers, just seems the centerfire guns have better triggers. Hope your new gun shoots as good as it looks.
