FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Rossi M720 is a double-action/single-action, 5-shot revolver chambered in .44 Special, produced by the Braziliam manufacturer Amadeo Rossi S.A..
The design and dimensions are heavily based on that of the Smith & Wesson medium sized K-Frame.
Most Model 720s were finished in stainless steel, and the grips were usually simple wrap-around checkered rubber, although Pachmayr rubber grips were also available.
Designed to be easily concealed, the barrel lengths were either 3″ or 3.5″ (with the 3.5″ barrel version being very rare).
It should be noted that the Model 720 is not strong enough to handle firing .44 Special “hotloads” such as +P type ammunition or certain wildcat ammunition loaded with extra propellant.
This gun is in very good to excellent, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
There are only very few, extremely light scratches in a few places (which can be easily polished out), otherwise the stainless steel finish is excellent.
The original Rossi rubber grips are still in perfect condition.
The cylinder lockup is still very tight and the revolver seems to barely ever have been used.
It wold benefit from a good strip and cleaning though.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, but is perhaps a little large (heavy) for every day carry, unless for a large-framed person.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports*:
- IDPA – Revolver division
- SADPA MPDS – Revolver division (REV)
- ICORE – Classic division
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun & Stock revolver
- STEEL CHALLENGE
- METALLIC SILHOUETTE
*Even though this revolver could technically be used for these sports, the 5 shot capacity would greatly disadvantage the shooter. This revolver is better suited for self defense.
