Went into a gun store North of Dallas today looking for a snubnose 38 as I just could not get used to my Ruger lcr that weighs 13 ounces. Mixed in with 15-20 used Smith and Ruger revolvers was this Rossi 685 that was in perfect shape and had a really tight lockup and a very nice trigger. Has a pinned barrel and even came with a set of pachmayr compact grips which I am sure I will appreciate. I held it and also a Smith 36 and could tell little difference. The price was great so I brought it home and I don't think it has been fired. It says interarms on the frame which I assume is the importer. I have several old taurus revolvers that have been great but never had a Rossi. Anyone know when these were made and what the difference is between the 685 and 68 model.
