I just purchased a like new Interarms/Rossi Model 851 stainless 4 inch revolver. I don't have pic's yet but it is 95% or better. Bore is like new. The only thing so far that I have a problem with is the trigger is sharp on the edges and lower end. With my fat fingers, these areas tend to hurt my finger when I fire the gun. Anyone else have an issue with the trigger in this regard?

BTW, paid $250.00 out the door with a hard case and holster. :)

Congrats, looking forward to range report and pictures. Sorry I can't help with the trigger issue, can the sharp edges be easily smoothed with out removing to much material?

Mine looks just like the pic rexherring posted. I am going to try to smooth out the edge's. Sorry, I think I will keep it a while. :)

I have one in 3", and it's without a doubt my favorite revolver to take to the range. Really a great gun...and mine cost $150 (to give you an idea of how long ago I bought it).

No rough spots on the trigger, though I can see how it would be possible. Glad you were able to smooth it out!

I took it to the range. It locks up tight and the single action trigger pull is as good as any Smith I ever shot. Double is a little heavy but not bad. It fits my hand well. I just wish that I could shoot as good as I did 40 years ago. 65 year old eyes are not conducive to great groups.

I improved a little on my Rossi last night. I took some advise about the rear sight. Since the rear sight and the front sight are both stainless, it makes it a little hard for my old eyes to see them clearly.

I took out my cold blue pen and blued the rear sight blade. I have not shot it yet but it makes a world of difference in sight picture. The proof will be in the pudding as they say. :)

I really like mine.I have a 3 inch barrel I would like to put on mine.I cannot find a gunsmith locally to do a barrel changed on a Rossi revolver. Right now it is a tack driver. Changing the barrel might change that.

Went to the range today. The new blued rear sight blade worked wonders. Six 148 gr. wadcutters in a 3 inch circle at seven yards.
