    I had one about twenty years ago. Every time it fired, the cylinder would come unlatched and move out just that little bit. No more than 1/16" of an inch, but yoiu could not pull the trigger again. If you slap the cylinder closed, you'd get one more shot before it would tie up again.

    Great, a two-hand, single shot revolver. Took it to a 'smith who siad it would cost more to fix it than it was worth. It's been resting at the bottom of a lake in Northern California ever since. I haven't even considered buying a Rossi ever since.

    Of course, Taurus just bought Rossi so everything will be all right now

    If you didn't read between the lines, let me be a bit more direct: I wouldn't give a dime for it, especially if you are going to entrust your life to it.

    My wife has been carrying one for 20 years. she puts about 500 rounds a year thru it, fantastic little revolver. From reading the reports by other shooters of other brands, this M68 she uses is as good as modern firearms reliability gets.
