Rossi Firearms

MIAMI, FL –( The Rossi revolution of firearm design and manufacture started with the founding of the company in 1889 by Amadeo Rossi.  Over the last 115 years, that tradition has grown along with the company and the Rossi Family.  The Rossi name represents a piece of firearm history and a tradition of excellence.

Over the years, Rossi firearms has led the way in design and engineering.  At the same time, it has always been important to produce an affordable product without sacrificing any quality or accuracy.

In December of 1997 BrazTech International L.C. was created as the exclusive importer of Rossi firearms in North America.

Previously, Rossi firearms were distributed by Interarms of Alexandria, Virginia. Rossi manufactures its classic rifles in a plant in San Leopoldo, Brazil and will continue operations there, selling many firearms outside the United States and North America.

At the same time, Forjas Taurus, S.A. purchased the rights and the equipment to manufacture Rossi handguns.  Taurus manufactures three models of .38 Special revolvers and four models of .357 Magnum revolvers under contract with Rossi.  Revolvers sold by BrazTech with the Rossi name are manufactured in a brand new facility owned by Taurus in SaoLeopoldo, Brazil.  Much of the tooling and many of the machines were acquired from Rossi during negotiations between the companies.

Today’s Rossi is still run by the same family and they put the same dedication and innovation into every firearm.  At Rossi, it is more than just building guns…it is a family’s history and tradition.

      It may be run by the same family but they can’t offer any insight on the Rossi Coach Gun. I recently bought one and found more information about it in a 1997 issue of American Rifleman than the people at Rossi can provide.

    2. I had a Rossi .38 revolver for 19 years until it was stolen at the range 3 mo ago.It was a great backup weapon,replaced it with a S&W .357 mag. HBH

      I bought a Rossi V971 .357 magnum with a 4 inch barrel and it was blue with wooden grips.It was cheap.The rear sight broke and I knocked off the timing firing constant magnums through it.This was the summer of 1997.I got it fixed and sold it.I bought the stainless steel V971 .357 magnum with 4 inch barrel and rubber grips.I thought it would be tougher.Again I knocked off the timing with a steady diet of magnums.Got it fixed and sold it.In 1998 I bought a L frame S&W 686 plus with a 4 inch barrel,SS,and Hogue SB monogrip.Never had another problem and I can feed it magnums all day and it runs like a champ.I had some money problems and sold it in 2005.Great Revolver.Shot to point of aim.Very accurate.I miss it.One of the best handguns I ever owned.Now Taurus has taken over.Maybe they can or have put some quality in Rossi.For my money.A S&W revolver is the best.

    4. Bought a 38 special years ago. There’s a reason why they are so inexpensive. Timing off, throwing as much lead around the cylinder as thru it. Always bought S&W’s before and never will buy another brand except my Colt Trooper MKIII

      I have broken the hammer on my 38.Rossi and I am told they do free replacements. When I called the company I was put on hold and finally gave up. I like my gun and as I am older it is the right weight for me. I would appreciate any helpful answers.
