    Some are, some aren't... rossi doesn't have the models listed, and no manuals online... drop them an email with your serial number, and ask... There's no way for me to tell because everyone else paints over their serial numbers, so I can't see if it's a "ZA" model.... grrrr. They can take out the numbers, but why do they take the letters too?!

    well according to some supposed rossi experts on aother forum, you can find the model number behind the ejector etched onto the frame and according to that then I have a model 352, thanks for trying guys

    I've got one of those. It'll be my warm weather carry gun when my license comes through. I paid over 200 for mine, but then it was NIB.

    Does yours shoot to the left? The fixed sites on my shoot to the left...strangely it's an accurate drift. The holes overlap, even if the holes are 3 to 6 inches left of where I them to be depending on range.

    it does shoot slightly to the left but the wife has already compensated and by the 20th or so round she had found her groove in single and double action. just aims a little to the right and it's centermass destruction for the rest of the day

    I found the same to be true with mine. For a two inch barrel, it's wickedly accurate even out to 25 yards...as long as you compensate a bit to the right.

    very nice. i want a snubby.
     
  11. Nice find, it would have hurt to have left that for someone else.
     
  12. I would suggest that you black out the serial numbers on those pics Krippp. Thanks in advance.

    Also, that's a hellova sweet looking snubbie. I am green with envy!!! :mrgreen:

    .38 = .38 Special in revolvers are the same. Not to be confused with .38acp and .38 Super, which are very different.
