    Has ANYONE Actually Gotten A Rossi Call-Back Repaired????

    I registered my "faulty" Rossi R972 back in October. Since then I have called, chatted, and even sent a registered letter. The answer is always "we're working on it". Meanwhile, 8 other manufacturer's have put about 10 new handguns on the market, and Kimber has designed new revolver. (see this month's American Rifleman) How difficult can this be? Why not just give everybody a credit toward a new Taurus? I'd like a 4" Mod 66 to go with my 6" Mod 66.

    Trouble is ---- I don't even want the dang thing anymore. A pal of mine runs a monthly booth at the local gun show and could probably get me 200 to 300 for it. But my conscience won't let me sell it to someone who might shoot himself with it if it's really defective.

    Maybe Rossi just don't like Texans.

    I feel your frustration. I read here very recently that no one has heard a thing from Rossi on this matter. The matter has been taken under advisement and under review, while they are fully apprised of the situation, please stand by for future updates.

    Problem I see with selling it is, that you have registered it with Rossi. And while manufacturing problem is that of Rossi, you have acknowledged your pistol as being defective. Therefore if you sold it with non disclosure of the recall the liability could fall upon you or at least in part upon you. This shows that while Rossi does not have a fix for the problem they manufactured and sold, they do have a legal dept. that knows how to pass the buck of liability it would seem.
    I have often heard that "Change is Good". If this is a fact, why does history tend to repeat itself so often. I'm guessing that it is so we can learn from our mistakes that change is good?

    I posted this in the Rossi Sticky thread at the head of this section two days ago:

    Just got off chat with "Anthony". My work order was entered 10/09/2018 ...four and a half months ago. I was smarter this time and didn't send my R462 in yet. Here's the latest canned response:

    "Due to the open mediations as mentioned on the safety notice website, we are awaiting permission from the legal proceedings to move forward with this project and open the claims period. Once the claims period opens, the small number of revolvers we have in house will be the first to be repaired and shipped back. We ask for a little more patience as we are expecting to be able to begin at any time."

    So I guess they have lawyers doing their gunsmithing now.

    I belong to another gun forum where Rossi's apparent difficulties are being discussed.
    A few members are having trouble receiving rifles they have on order.
    They talked to the wholesaler and were told Rossi is having financial issues and is
    producing very little and they are on a credit hold. This story has been repeated several places.
    This may or may not have anything to do with repairs but if parts and/or replacements are involved
    people may be finding another long wait ahead of them.
    Since Taurus manufactures revolvers for Braztech (the last I heard) to sell under Braztech's "Rossi" brand I really have no idea
    what the heck is going on. I prefer to watch things like this from a distance and fondle my Sigs.

    As with the Taurus recalls, I have set back and never sent anything back in. From most everything anyone has ever said in either the Taurus fiasco and the apparent Rossi fiasco....why would I send either of them the time of day? 10 years ago, I would have defended the companies with my dying breath, but years of different owners in both companies tell me no one has properly managed either company properly in some time. We watched a guy who really believed in us the consumer get fired for trying to give us better service and product.

    I've never been in the habit of dropping any of my guns, and my 2nd Gen Milpro PT 145 and my Rossi 351-03 are two of my favorite handguns. Once you send something in on one of these deals, it falls into a black hole, never more to return.

    I've been waiting since mid-September 2018 when I received the Recall work order number online. Zero response since.

    I brought my 461 to the range last Saturday and fired off about 50 uneventful rounds just because seeing it in the gun safe idle was getting annoying.

    IF Rossi is in financial trouble as others have suggested the possibility exists that Taurus could simply close up that subsidiary and leave all Rossi owners in limbo for decades as things crawl their way through various legal systems. I'm 70 and openly wonder if I'll live long enough to see this recall issue resolved.

    I don't think the smokescreen of "Rossi financial troubles" has anything to do with the issue. From the following, I think you can pretty much lay the blame at Taurus' feet.

    "At the same time, Forjas Taurus, S.A. purchased the rights and the equipment to manufacture Rossi handguns. Taurus manufactures three models of .38 Special revolvers and four models of .357 Magnum revolvers under contract with Rossi. Revolvers sold by BrazTech with the Rossi name are manufactured in a brand new facility owned by Taurus in SaoLeopoldo, Brazil. Much of the tooling and many of the machines were acquired from Rossi during negotiations between the companies."

    You bring up a "permanent" point with the legal issue, JRJ. Following your logic -- which is damned sound --- I can't do anything with the gun except wait on Rossi. Except take a hacksaw to it. Even if I don't want it, I'm stuck with it until they decide to fix it.

    We have a 35103 & 35102 that the hammer blocks work correctly in and will remain in service until the facts prove them actually more dangerous than any of my other revolvers. After a little head scratching it looks like the frame mounted hammer pin and/or the hammer in the area of the pin could allow the hammer nose to strike the primer if one or both failed. Facts would be of great help.

    What is the difference between the Rossis that are recalled and the older ones that are not recalled?
