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 good used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The finish is still very good with no signs of wear, except there are a few, small spots of light surface rust in places (mainly on the frame), most likely from sitting in storage., which can likely be easily 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, except just a little dirty.
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
