Rossi Model 461/462 Reviews

Classic design and rock-solid reliability. Discuss everything from a vintage Cowboy-action to a snub-nose .38 special.

My personal reference would be a Charter arms Snubbie with a shrouded hammer for SA/DA with aluminum frame that weighs 12oz. Model: "On Duty" no. 13810 Looks like SS.

Cost about $345.



Also is the "undercover Lite" at 12 oz with traditional hammer & choice of colors.



I carried the "Pug" .357 Mag model as an off duty sidearm for many years [one of the best CC sidearms I've owned in 40+ years. It is made for defense, not a mega-round range gun.

Many don't realise, it has a completely blocked hammer system, cannot fire unless trigger is held in full rear position - safest revolver design in the world.

In fact, Charter invented the hammer block transfer bar safety system used by almost every revolver manufacturer.



Charter 'gave' the patent to other gun makers, free, just to make revolvers safer.



How not to love a 12 oz, 5 shot, +P rated, reliable revolver that is made in the U.S. with U.S. parts and U.S. employees.

The new 'shrouded hammer' make holsters optional.

Interestining information about the Charter revolvers. The only one I ever saw was steel and looked kind of big and heavy. I think they were 44s. 12 ounces sounds nice. Still my 462 is not bad for a 357.

I'm picking up my CA "On Duty", 38 spl, +P rated, 12 oz, 7075 aluminum frame, today.

My wife just "informed me" this morning, that we are going to the range on Wed.

It was NOT a request!!! Love that woman!

It sounds like you have a great girl there. I sometimes shoot at the local Law Enforcement Academy range. It is a nice controlled environment and allows practice in practical arts like drawing and firing at various distances. Other times I do informal shooting outside.

I bought this from a pawn shop used, for 200 bucks and have put about 500 rounds through it, shoots great, not one problem, use it as a spare conceal gun, at 25 yards can put 4 out of 6 shots in a 4 inch circle. Keep it polished and oiled and i would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a good little gun, wife likes it when she carries. I use an inside the pants holster and conceals like a dream..... For the price it was a steal.....

I purchased a 462 and thank goodness it had a lifetime replacement warranty. The first second and third were so so greatly out of time they were dangerous to shoot let alone that I couldnt the side of a barn. The fourth is acually a decent shooter if you dont mind the barrel being indexed at about 5 degrees off perpendicular. I guess if you want to look at it but not stake your life on it it is OK< but I would not recommend this weapon line to anyone. Thank you and better luck than me.
