    R44102 vs. Taurus Talo M44C

    Finally was able to see the R44102 first hand as my nephew was visiting and the Rossi is one of his carry guns. He had bought the revolver at Academy back at Christmas and there was some questions about whether it was the same as the Taurus Talo M44C offered through Davidson's.

    Other than the blued steel vs. stainless, it is the same piece down to the exact weight. I still think this 44 Mag was the deal of the year! Rocky and I were through Academy and they had still had one in the case. The pistol in the case, not at the sale price that many bought at, was still $200 less than my Talo. I don't think the finish is worth the difference but it is a great handgun none the less.

    Yep, I went to Academy on Black Friday to pick up the $99 Heritage 22that they advertised but it was sold out. Having the itch, I bought the R44102.

    I really like my Rossi R44102 it feels very similar to my 44TrackerSS4 but without the adjustable sights. Mine shoots very well with 240 gr SWC and 7.5 gr of Unique in .44 special cases.

    Rossi R44102 grips

    I just bought a Rossi R44102 from a buddy of mine and I love it. The Ribber grips? Not so much. I own a few taurus revolvers and hate these grips. I can't find grips for the rossi though. You guys that have them, what grip models or sizes are you using? I like the houge grips but I don't know what grips will fit it.

    The Hogue grips on mine are the model for the Taurus Tracker

    I wish they would have left the three inch barrels on the Rossi 44 ...heck 3in barreled revolvers sell so good....
    and they would have looked a little bit like the Astra 44 used by Clooney in "Dusk til Dawn !!"
