Spotted one on consignment this afternoon for $375 but I have little to no Rossi experience.
Interarms import stamp, seemed to be in pretty good condition overall and but top edges could use some cleanup file work due to minor dings (but my NIB .327 SP101 has the same issue so that’s obviously not a deal breaker ). No endshake that I can discern and lock up seemed OK but not as solid as other DA revolvers I’ve handled. Again, no Rossi experience so that may be normal.
They made two versions of it, both with 3 inch barrels. There is a conventional double action with adjustable sights, some fluted cylinders some unfluted. The other version is a fixed sight DA only, I currently have one of the latter. It is a dandy, very smooth action, locks up tight. I wish I could find two or three more. For under $400 I’d grab it quick. The grips are perfect for my hands too.
Thanks, glad to hear the good reports. I was seriously thinking about either a 3 3/4” or 4 5/8” .357 or .45 single action as my next purchase but I think I’ll swing back by that shop for another look at the 720. It might make a nice companion to the 4” 29.
Warhawk, this one has adjustable sights and I think the cylinder is fluted but I don’t recall what stocks it’s wearing. Probably some kind of Goodyears.
