I could of sworn it had a solid cylinder,but anyway it would be a great time for Tauras to re-introduce it as a 44mag wouldn't you think?

The M971 I owned had an unfluted cylinder, a smallish sort of half K half J frame sized gun. Nice outdoor backpacking piece, quite light for a stainless gun. The 971 was also offered fluted and in blue and with a compensated barrel built in. My was a stainless 4" with unfluted cylinder. I'm not sure about the Cyclops, but it could have been offered both fluted and unfluted.

You didn't see too many of those around. It seems it was 1 of the last Interarms Rossi's. I think I only saw 1 new 1 in a gun shop. Any Idea as to the value today?
