    Rossi M68

    Just picked up a Rossi M68 from my buddy for $200. Good deal or no? Real clean. He's a bounty hunter and just bought a S&W .40 cal.

    That, My Friend, IS A RARE, RARE FIND!

    The Mdl 68 was a Blued Revolver with either a 2" or 3" barrel.
    The Mdl 88 was a Stainless Steel Revolver with either a 2" or 3" barrel.

    Your gun appears to be a STAINLESS STEEL MDL 68!!!!! It's worth every penny you paid for it and more!

    Either that or it's mis-stamped. I had an 88, still have a 68. They're good shootin' little guns. I sold the 88 a while back for $150 to a friend. I'm not sure what THAT gun is worth, if it has some extra value via the 68 model designation, but it is a little on the high side, still an okay deal, for an 88 in good shape. They don't retain much value and you can get a new 352 for under 300 bucks, essentially the same gun.

    I just traded what appears to be the same firearm. It could have been an 88, but I'm not sure. I know it was a Rossi .38spl in stainless that looked like yours.

    I was not all that interested in the Rossi, but I only paid $175 for it. I held it about 2 months and I don't think I even put a round down the pipe.
    It sat in my safe until one day that I found a want ad.

    I traded the Rossi for a 1915 production year Colt Police Positive Special in .38+P
