This is a very old post but I thought I would add some to it.
I have a Rossi model 68 38 spl blued and it is like new and even in the original box. I bought it back in the late 80's I believe for around $175. I also bought a Rossi model 88 which is basically the same gun only in stainless. It also is like new but no box with it.
Neither of these two guns have ever not fired when the trigger was pulled. Actually quite accurate and the trigger actions on both are very good in DA or SA. These both are 2" snubs.
These guns were actually pretty much clones to the S&W model 36 and were actually made by S&W engineers and machinist back when S&W and Rossi were under the same parent company umbrella. Sit these Rossi models next to a model 36 and they really are like clones.
While the S&W 36 can cost $400-$700 these Rossi models can usually be found in excellent condition for around $200 or lower.
