Hello,

I recently bought the revolver in question and I would like to buy spare parts such as firing pin etc before I even need them, because searching for parts can certainly take months.

The question is, which model this one might be, because for example the catalog presented on this page does not recognize this version at all?

Parts from which model might go into this and where could you get them, delivered to Finland?

I am also interested in the laser handle made by Crimsom Trace, which model could be modded to make it suitable for this?

Welcome aboard! Nice heater in a great caliber. I do not know the model but it looks like a Taurus Tracker series with the
full under lug and the vented top rib.

WOW, a beauty.

Our resident expert on models and dates (ET) will likely be along with the best information you'll get.

What government administrative process does it take to buy/keep a handgun in Finland?

Hopefully these experts show up at some point :)

There are some general information about Finnish way to handle these things. But in general for handguns,it is really rationed.

It´s the Model 483, described in both catalogs avaliable in the fixed topics.

The rail under the barrel is not destined to laser sights, but a two square 1-oz weights to help the balance when the gun is fired in single action, with a single-hand grip.

It´s very common that those weights are lost, because are a impeditive to use a holster. Another reason is that sporting rules of some modalities forbid it.

Thank you for the answer.

413 is an assembly number used only inside the factory.
This number indicates which parts have been adjusted to each other.
The number we are interested in is on the left side of the grip frame, including the month and year of manufacture of the revolver. As a rule, the month is expressed in Roman numerals, followed by the year in Indo-Arabic numerals.
The model number stamped in the gun could be different, because Rossi used the same frame for different models. Maybe you can find a "85" number instead "483".

Here´s a picture of Rossi 853 (same gun, but chambered for .38 Special) in original factory box, with 1-oz weights, screwdriver for sight adjustment and cleaning flannel.

About replacing parts: this model is out of production. A good place to search by gun parts is United Kingdom. Many firearms are deactivated in that country, and removed parts, as I know, cannot be sold inside UK, but can be exported.
