Rossi 357 SA/DA Blued - Used...Should I?

The hubby and I went to the range at the LGS this evening. As usual, we checked out the pre-owned guns for sale and came across a beautiful Rossi .357 blued revolver for only $257.00. It has no box or accessories. I held it and the balance and grip felt awesome.

I really don't know anything about Rossi revolvers or if this is a good deal. It sure was a beautiful looking gun and it almost killed me to leave it in the case. So, I am asking all of my ruger forum buddies out there to give me some input/advice. Should I or shouldn't I??

maybe for a truck gun, and ive also heard through the grapevine (for what its worth) that people do not recommend shooting .357 through them just my two cents

I had a SS Snubby 357 Rossi for over a decade. I fired about 2500 rounds of mixed 357 and 38 SP thru it with no problems. Traded it away to a ranch owner for a hog hunt on his property with his meat processing and lodging for the hunt. it was a good deal at the time, but the meat is gone and I miss that Rossi.

I don't shoot .357 through my SP101, just .38's, so that wouldn't be an issue for me.

also when playing with one at the GS, the trigger pull is crazy heavy (this one was new though) either that way the price isn't bad, good luck in whatever you choose!

conditionyellow is an unknown quantity at this point
I miss my .357 SS 4". It was a moose of a gun but dependable. I think Taurus bought out Rossi and my guess that the pre-Taurus models would be more dependable than the new ones.
