Rossi now offers medium frame revolvers built to the same quality and reliability standards that have been part of the Rossi name for over 100 years. Rossi revolvers are machined from forged steel and will routinely fire the powerful rounds for a lifetime. Each handgun features deep, contoured finger grooves in the grip for a solid grasp and maximum shooting comfort. All Rossi Revolvers have the lifetime repair policy, as well as the patented Taurus Security System, a simple, integral locking device that allows the firearm to be secured by use of a special key. The Model 972 is a heavy-duty stainless steel revolver that fires .357 Magnum rounds. The 6-inch barrel helps reduce recoil and the adjustable rear sight along with a red ramp front sight help further ensure accuracy.
