    I have owned a 461, for over 3 years, it handles everything I put thru it. SA trigger pull is extremely light, DA is a bit tough but does smooth out. Mine was so tight that after about 25 rds in short order, got tight to the forcing cone, cylinder front and was hard to rotate.
    A quick cleaning and allowing it to cool down and it was back to normal. Of course, in a PD situation, you most likely will not be firing 25 rds in short order. If you are then, you need a long gun, and 30 rd mags not a revolver??

    I guess the main thing i was trying to figure out if rossi still makes it or does taurus make it under the rossi name.Because i did not realize taurus owns rossi..Thanks for the info i had an eaa windicator and traded it for something and i want another 357.And the rossi looks like it could be a nice revolver..

    Construction wise, the main difference that I see between the Rossi and Taurus, is that the Rossi firing pin is mounted on the hammer a la the original S & W design. Most everyone else has shifted to a frame-mounted variant.
    Here's a question for the owners of newer models......Is the frame a round butt, or square butt? The reason I bring it up is for grip replacement. My old 68's are square butt. That seems to lessen my grip replacement choices. I have two 68's and want to dress one of them up a little bit.
    These are two points to be prepared for. #1, Square butt J-frame grip and #2. Hammer-mounted firing pin.

    Well, I went and looked in the closet at one of the Rossi's. I can never remember which one is the 461 and which one is the 462, BUT I checked the blued one and it is engraved 461 and it has the birds-head style grips over a round (rounded really) butt - it is definitely not square.

    Hope that is helpful.

    For the "Taurus-owned" version you want the pistol to be stamped with Braztech-Rossi. The older units stamped with just Rossi are not covered under the Taurus/Rossi lifetime warranty.

    I own one of the 2" blue versions, the #46102 and I'm very pleased with it.

    As a owner of the 461s twin, the 462, these make great carry pieces.
    The 462 is in stainelss only.... or is now anyway.
    I like the 6th shot versus 5 shots that most snub revolvers carry.

    For the past few years, my 462 has been my daily carry weapon of choice. I can't give you much "bad", but I can give you a lot of "good". After well over 3000 rounds of various .38 and .357 loads, I have not experienced a single breakage or malfunction. It is also my hunting-fishing-camping companion and has even taken a couple of dunks in the fishing hole with no ill effects. I wouldn't trade it for all of the Rugers and S & W's east of the Mississippi!

    It is better to have and not need it than to need it and not have it.
