FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Rossi Model 68 was introduced in 1978 and is a compact (barrel just under 3″), 5 shot revolver chambered in .38 special.
It is a close copy of the popular Smith & Wesson Model 36 and was produced by Rossi under license using Smith & Wesson tooling and machinery in Brazil.
Rossi revolvers are generally considered very economical firearms that are still good quality and well made.
This gun is in very good to excellent used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The stainless steel finish is still excellent with only very few, extremely light scratches in places that can easily be polished out.
There are also a few, very small spots of light surface rust inside the trigger guard, which can easily be removed.
The cylinder lock-up is still extremely tight, and I doubt that this revolver has been fired much, if at all.
The original Rossi rubber grips are still very good.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, and concealed carry or back-up gun use.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports:
- IDPA – BUG Revolver division
- SADPA MPDS – Backup Gun (BUG) and Revolver (REV) divisions
- ICORE – Classic division
