    I’m so glad that I came across this info. Thank you so much!

    Apparently, my Rossi’s SN fell victim to this recall. I’m personally unsure how to go on this. I picked it up from a private seller a few years back. I was thinking of having my dealer take it from me, but I’d rather not have somebody else buy it and risk them getting injured over this recall. If I do send it in, then judging by the comments, I can ask the representatives if a .357 option is available? I still have ammo left over I’m keeping in the meantime and I’d rather have another revolver than can take .357, although right now with the price hikes, I’m not even bothering with .357 unless I’m put into a scenario where I absolutely have to use it.

    Keep ur gun.

  4. michael hobaugh on November 8, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Of you like the gun don’t send it in, The have no intention to repair it. They are just collecting them for destruction. I had the 2" high polished . 357 magnum and I loved it. Sent it in for inspection and repair and they stole it. Their only offerings were not sufficient to replace what I had and loved. They offered a mat finished 5shot .357 or a matt finished 6 shot 38 spl. I wasn,t happy with either offering and I offered to pay the difference in cost to get something that I could be happy with. I was flat refused the opportunity to buy up to something I wanted. My only option was to pick one of the two offerings and shut up and like it. I was robbed.

    Have your own gun smith fix the problem it’ll get done faster and he can explain the problem to you in detail

  6. LS6WS6 on November 8, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Keep it for sure man.

  7. Diane Quinn on November 8, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    I think I got one too but I’ll be damned sending it back

  8. rk ow on November 8, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    If you’re worried about it drop the hammer on a empty chamber.I have a 461 I’m keeping mine.If you hold the gun upside down and smash the hammer spur on something hard yes I can see it happening,

  9. Diane Quinn on November 8, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    I carry the 1st empty anyway

  10. John Elder on November 8, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    I would take it out in the woods and hit the hammer a few times with a block of wood and see if it’s a good one. If it is and does not fire, I would keep the gun. If It fires, I would send it back.I would not accept a model 85 as a replacement.

  11. Doc Prepper on November 8, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    I’ve got one. It needs the recall done and I need a few parts for it too. Not sure where I’m at on it now lol

  12. Mackie Jin on November 8, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    All those real shit are with *cashmain on Wickr* I just got a fucking glock 19x from him

  13. Dennis Fuchs on November 8, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    I made a mistake by sending my Rossi in!! Took about 9 to 10 months to get the pos tarsus they sent back for a replacement!! Something I would never own!! All the time,no contact with them!! They promised to fix the gun I sent in!! WTH happened there?? Never will trust that company again!! I would still like to own the one they said they would fix, they screwed me on that!!

  14. George Veneziano on November 8, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Don’t drop it simple as that.

  15. Jeff Blackmon on November 8, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Test it like they did.
    If it fails, send it, then…
    If it passes, keep it and feel better.

  16. maduro169 on November 8, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Is this clown handling a loaded gun !!!!!!!

  17. Wild Tex on November 8, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    Are people carrying these guns around with the hammer cocked? Or is the impact hitting the hammer? I guess people don’t fundamentally understand revolvers. You can keep the hammer on an empty cylinder if that’s the case.

  18. George Giambelluca on November 8, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    You think you opened and closed the cylinder enough??

  19. Adam Berry on November 8, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    Seems to me like you should probably expect all guns to go off when dropped… and probably should hit it with a hammer either. And also I’d say they probably was playing around and shot themselves in the leg… jus sayin

  20. Garth C on November 8, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    Keep it and shoot the shit out of it!

  21. Ken Mitchell on November 8, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    RE: Rossi 461-03 I checked s# and then filed online 08/01/2020. 11/27/2020 my replacement Taurus 65 was delivered to my local gun store. Customer Service was awesome and the service time was awesome considering some of the horror stories I’ve read.

  22. Mark Roster on November 8, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    If you take your hands off the steering wheel of your car, you may crash…all brands…do we need a recall on all vehicles? Don’t drop your gun! And don’t hit the hammer with a mallet!

  23. allan brown on November 8, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Have never had a major issue with my taurus guns, I own a 7 shot 617 rite now and it is a great shooting gun. I did have an older model 357 that was purchased at a pawnshop used, it ended up having a split forcing cone. Sent it to taurus , had it back in less than a month with a brand new barrel , and they even polished the rest of the gun up for me.Don’t drop your gun and don’t smack them with a mallet!

  24. Marc Montalvo on November 8, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    Just cowboy load it, carry 5 with the hammer on an empty chamber

  25. 33818ual on November 8, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    I wish I had a dollar every time you open and closed that cylinder.

  26. The Autodidactic Man on November 8, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    They will exchange it for a new crap 5 shot now instead of fixing your Rossi, so don’t send it in.

  27. Kenton Hammond on November 8, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    Keep it in the pick up truck,…if it gets stolen,..well,… then maybe Karma will do its thing on the bad guy. Until then,…don’t drop your damn guns !

  28. rk ow on November 8, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    They hit the hammer spur with a mallet and it went off what did they think would happen?I think these stories left some facts out.

  29. Craig Marshall on November 8, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    Why don’t you take it to the range and shoot it? How do you know none of your other guns won’t misfire if you drop them, or smack them with a mallet? Try not dropping a loaded pistol. Why didn’t you hit it with a fucking mallet? I’m sure that with your bitter hatred of Taurus and enough time and imagination you could somehow get it to misfire.

  30. Reynaldo Rivera on November 8, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    I sent 3 out of 4 recalls back. I put in for 857 4” barrel 6 shot .38
    Not sure if I’m going to keep any of them I’d rather have Taurus judge/prosecutor or something like that
    I was told as of today, that revolvers are 2-6 weeks, semi auto 12 + weeks bc of the high demand.

  31. Hellosh Klosh on November 8, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Wtf???! Lol. Dude…. I would have never known.

  32. Ray Houston on November 8, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    Hit it with a mallet. If it goes off, don’t hit it with a mallet again. ;[)

  33. Fernando Nando on November 8, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Excelente revólver Rossi 🇧🇷

  34. John Jones on November 8, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Just saw this. My R351 S/N is prefixed "AA". My "fix" recommendation is just don’t drop it. If you have prosthetic legs, don’t worry about it. If you’re faced with an intruder, just throw it on the floor towards him. 😀

  35. nuneys tabletop reviews. on November 8, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Keep it be carefull

  36. Dennis Fuchs on November 8, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    I made the mistake of sending one in!! Oh yeah got the $50.00 but it took over 9 months,then they sent a replacement gun!! Something I would never own!! In the time it took them and no contact with them!! They pulled a fast one on anyone that sent a gun in!! Had it to do over never would do it!! Don’t drop yr gun !!

  37. bsidenbend on November 8, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Seriously, what are the chances of 1)Dropping it. 2) Having an accidental discharge.? Hang on to it, practice safe gun handling, and enjoy the revolver.

  38. Bill Whitmire on November 8, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    Keep it

  39. BigBossMan on November 8, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    Sent my Rossi in knowing they would not repair it. Customer Service Rep contacted me and said it would be replaced with a Taurus. I asked for a 856 six shot Matt stainless and it took about a month to get. Not sure why other folks have to wait so long.

  40. DeanMk1 on November 8, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Why not just take it to your local gunsmith and have them repair it?
    There’s obviously a flaw that Rossi/Taurus already has a fix for. Seems simple enough to have your local ‘smith order the part and replace it.
    Sure, you’ll have to pay for the repair, but you’ll get it done in a reasonable amount of time and (depending on how good your ‘smith is) it may actually be repaired more competently.

  41. Hellosh Klosh on November 8, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    I subscribed, because you just made my life a little safer. God Bless.

  42. Allways Andnever on November 8, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Going to the bathroom one day my Rossi 357 fell out of the holster landed on the hammer and did not go off thank God it would have been a gutshot with that being said I trust my Rossi

  43. No More on November 8, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Just do not drop it 🙂

  44. Joseph Raymond on November 8, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Buy a smith&wesson

  45. michael finney on November 8, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Filled out the claim some time ago and not a word or a box ever sent. Would have been a hoot if they really sent me a box and the 50 dollars ! Oh well, they’ve just got so many so called defective guns out there it’s just not gonna happen. Sad

  46. Ray on November 8, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Keep it,!

  47. lead bullets 4 life on November 8, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    i love my 461 it shoots all in the black double action at 25 yards and i have video on it on my channel, but like you said i’ve seen these black matte pieces of mierda (spanish for caca!!) they look so cheap and not at all a good replacement for my 461 which has the deep bluing six shot cylinder and a tight look up, i’ll keep mine for now.

  48. Ryan Cooper on November 8, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Update for all. On my recalled Rossi 351. About 3 weeks for Taurus to contact me initially. Taurus offered the Taurus 856 as a replacement. Supposedly they’re backordered so will be 6 weeks or so till replacement is at the FFL. Hold time for them on the phone was only 8 minutes.

  49. Solutions2 Exist on November 8, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Bad things happen to all gun manufacturers. S&W, like all of them including Colt Python, make lemons or mistakes. The difference is Customerservice. I did not send my S&W PPK/S back as the fix literally destroyed the looks of the SS. I elected to be very careful with the weapon instead.

    There is always a first time, but I have never dropped a gun. Proper planning prevents pi*s poor performance …, as the saying goes. Just like a Colt SAA, leave no round under the chamber. You might take a mallet to it; but to me that would be gun cruelty and you just could not guarantee that no gun was hurt filming that process. Yep, small humor inserted into the paragraph chamber holding these sentences.

    Would someone tell Biden to enforce the gun laws on the books that include sending Hunter Biden to prison for lying on the background check. The FBI statistics refute Biden’s assertions. Furthermore, pistol braces have been legal for over a decade. “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”. Rather clear … therefore all gun control laws both State and Federal violate the 2nd Amendment as the States agreed to them too. If you want to impose gun laws that infringe on the people’s right you have to change the Constitution Mr. Biden.

  50. DoubleTapLasVegas on November 8, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Crisis averted, mine is not on the list… I was going to make it my truck gun if it were a recall.
