Rossi Revolver

Rossi has a history of being one of the leading names in revolvers, and now they return to the U.S. market with three new guns. These new revolvers bring back some of the features from Rossi’s past and combine them with modern manufacturing techniques.

The first model is the new RP63, optimized for concealed carry, with an all-new match-grade trigger. The RP63 is a stainless-steel revolver chambered in .357 Magnum, making it well-suited to home defense or everyday carry. The revolver has a rounded grip frame that reduces printing and holds six rounds, which is more than similarly-sized revolvers. The rear sights are fixed, and the front sight is ramped for a snag-free draw. Like all these new revolvers from Rossi, the firing pin is mounted on the hammer to increase reliability with harder primers.

The second model from Rossi is the RM66, a six shot revolver that has the same high-quality trigger as its 3-inch brother but with a 6 inch barrel and adjustable sights. Perfect for range day, ranch work, or revolver competition shooting, the RM66 will also provide optimal ballistic performance out of the .357 Magnum cartridge. The RM66 revolver is also built using stainless steel and has a square butt configuration, making it easier to shoot with full power magnum or 38 Special rounds.

Finally, later in 2023, Rossi will release the “do everything” model, the RM64. Medium frame revolvers chambered in .357 Magnum with 4 inch barrels are widely regarded by experts as an optimal choice for a revolver that does a little bit of everything well. A revolver this size can be carried concealed or used for hunting, home defense or one of the many shooting competitions with revolver-friendly divisions. The RM64 features the same match-grade trigger as the other Rossi revolvers, and the same adjustable sights as the RM66.
