Looking at the online site and a couple of revolvers in town and find a question that I can't find an answer to. Example: Model R97206; 6",SS, 357.
Seemingly identical gun with Model # suffix of "FC".
What does "FC" mean and what is the difference in the guns?

I see the "FC" used on several models.
Curiosity aroused!!!!!!!!!!

28 views of this post, from what must be assumed are people with a Rossi affinity, and not one try at an explanation?
I searched the Rossi site and couldn't find the reasoning. Someone?? Anyone?? Nobody!!!!!

It could mean 'further confusion', based on the way this thread is looking.:)

Carbon steel as opposed to what, both revolvers are described as "stainless". I'll try a call tomorrow, or email if I can find an address, haven't looked for one yet.

Called the Rossi contact #, spoke with a really nice sounding young woman, presuming based on voice. She had the explanation at hand. The "FC" stands for "fired case" to be included for those markets/states that require it. My state does not require a fired casing be included, our legislators figure we can do that ourselves.
End of problem!!!!!!!!!

It is also required in the Democratic & Socialist States of Massachusetts and Maryland and some others, I suppose.

The Ruger SR9C I just purchased came with one, I left it sealed in the brown envelope in came in. It's not required here in Iowa, but I suspect Ruger is just covering all the bases to meet the requirements of the "nanny" states.
