Just picked up a used 5 round 38 Special Rossi revolver with a 4” barrel and adjustable rear sight. I was told it was a model 489 but I cannot find any reference to that model online. Anyone have or heard of the M489? I need to buy grips for it and want to make sure I get the correct ones.

Found an old set of grips that fit. I am wondering if it is a Frankenstein gun pieced together from different models.

Since it's marked "Firearms Int. Washington DC" That tells you a lot. That's before Interarms became the importer. Firearms Int. was absorbed into Garcia in the very early 70's. 1971? 1972? So your gun is probably at least as old as 1970 and likely later half of the 60's. Garcia imported them until the mid to late 70's when Interarms picked them up.

It's probably 50 years old. At least.
