Help her out and check the serial number online to see if it is covered under the Rossi Safety Recall of several models.


My blued 461 was affected and was replaced last year with a matte black Taurus 605 under the program by the parent corporation. Rossi no longer manufactures handguns. FWIW the 605 has been flawless at the range/
Several firearms in .22LR, .380ACP, 9mm, 7.62x25, 7.62 Nagant, .38/.357, 7.62x54R, .45ACP and .223. Lee reloading gear.
