    Rossi m 89 .32 long 6 shot nib revolver , review

    For a couple of months was in search of a good brand revolver but never wanted to spend more. So, left with few choices like Arminius and other not so popular German brands, Smith & Wesson, Rossi etc.

    About 10 days back visited the whole Nila Gumbad market & Baksh Elahi. Weapons of good brand were available but there was excessive wear and tear not even close to even fair condition on the other hand I was looking for NIB or almost NIB. My effort was rewarded when Mr. Rizwan Shah of Orient Traders showed me this beauty. As usual he demanded a very reasonable price ( it sounded like a gift ) but as an honest person he warned me about very low resale value and expensive but available ammo.

    It is Rossi Model M 89 , 6 shot Revolver and best part it was NIB with fully greased due to time factor at some parts grease was sort of attached to the frame of revolver. It is 3 inch ( my preferred barrel length ) not good but excellent choice for CCW even better than Baikal MP 442 PMM ( I am sure about it because at present I have them both ). Body made up of stainless steel and grip was marvelous, initially I thought it was custom made for my hand & fingers.

    Now without wasting much time, here is the eye candy.

    First the box , in a very torned out condition

    Next upon opening the box found just a brochure stating very briefly about the particular weapon and genral gun rules nothing fancy about it

    But one thing made me curious the picture on the brochure I still could not make it out atleast it is not the logo of Rossi ( it is just an alphabet R ) , seems like a man sitting on a horse

    Anyone with good knowledge of pictures /art plz let me know what does it signifies.

    Any how now moving on to the weapon itself, it is a pure beauty in my personal opinion a Gem in a dream come true price, here are more pictures of weapon itself from various angles with both cylinder in and out

    Front sight in real is more clear and easy to aim at than it sounds in the above pictures

    Weapon is very well balanced, the only semiauto that I own which fits better than this revolver is CZ 75B SS 9MM

    At the end I would like to say a very Beautiful and Robust revolver in very very affordable price tag & NIB which is difficult to find. This is the first revolver that I have ever purchased in my life. Will give Range report waiting for Wednesday to come and will see how well it performs in reality.

    I am in search for such a mint class preferably NIB revolver in .22 caliber revolver for my other license

    Regards

    Sir, its not that expensive. But its in no comparison with mighty .357mag.
    On other hand its a good caliber to be handled in shorter barrel revolvers.

    Certainly there is no comparison between .32 & .357 Magnum calibers.

    Thanks SUPREME_HUNTER , raff , GUNFREAK , Hussnain Ayub & Aquarius brother

    @raff
    Yes finally got 1 out of 2 revolvers planned to be purchased. Actually needed in two calibers .32 & .22. Now as I got one in .32 now search for .22 revolver ( NIB like this revolver or mint condition ) is still on

    @Surg.Ray
    We gun enthusiasts never give up on guns, it was just a temporary impulse of Kaboom, wastage of money, family pressure etc.
    And what picture you are referring to, if possible please point it out because before giving review weapon was checked, re-checked & again re-checked to make sure it is empty.And for proper review sort of must ( in my personal view ) to get pics from every angle

    PRICE........................... 25K ( Asking, Selling & Purchasing price no bargain even attempted )

    Regards
