Product Description
rossi 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.

i use this model 972 for huning and cant say enough good things about it, i like the factory sights, but dont like the factory grip as it is a little to small, all in all a good hand gun for a beginner and very well ballanced which helped with the recoil which was minimal to non existent.highly recomend it to anyone.

    Comments about Rossi Model 972 Handgun:

    Perfect fit for small grips for my wife. I like the long barrel for control. 2" she has to much swing and less accuracy. Because the two hand method is being taught to her she can bring the weapon up and get her sight picture, fire and bring the pistol down and bring it back up to firing position. Teaching her center mass as three to five feet up to fifteen feet. Most shootings are at three to five feet believe it or not. I was a Police Range officer for over 23 years.

      I use it mostly at the range. It`s very accurate.
      The only thing negative about it is the lack of grip choices.

          Comments about Rossi Model 972 Handgun:

          This was the first handgun I have ever purchased and I have to say I'm impressed. You can't go wrong buying this revolver. Excellent accuracy right out of the box with stock sights. With the 6 in barrel and with the weight of the gun, you don't see much kick. Of course too, with the .357, you have the options of shooting .38's if you're not looking for as much power. I see some of the complaints about the small grips but with my smaller hands not a big deal for me lol. It's double action revolver but only shooting in ranges, I just pull the hammer back to lighten up the trigger. I've only used it for target shooting and it hasn't let me down. I've owned it for about 2 years and have put about 1500-2000 rounds through it and no issues what so ever. A fun gun to shoot and everyone else who has used it is really impressed. Great price for a great gun. Totally recommend this.
