Rossi Launches Series of .357 Mag. Revolvers: First Look

Rossi USA returns to the revolver market with the release of the 3-inch RP63 and the 6-inch RM66 .357 Magnum revolvers. A do-everything 4-inch model will be in stores later this year. Here's a first look.

Once one of the leading names in revolvers, Rossi is back in the US revolver market and better than ever with three new guns. These new revolvers bring back timeless features from Rossi’s past, while incorporating modern manufacturing techniques.

First up is the new RP63, or as we like to call it, your next carry gun. A stainless-steel revolver chambered in .357 Magnum, the RP63 is perfect for home defense or everyday carry. It uses a rounded grip frame, which reduces printing when carried concealed. With a higher capacity than similarly sized revolvers, the RP63 holds six rounds in the cylinder. The sights are fixed, which is optimal for a carry gun, and the front sight is ramped for a snag-free draw. Like all the new Rossi revolvers, the firing pin is mounted on the hammer, which has been a feature of Rossi Revolvers for over a century. Rounding off this redesign is an all-new match-grade trigger that elevates the shooting experience.

Up next is the RM66. This six-shot revolver has the same fantastic trigger as its 3-inch brother, but sports 6 inches of barrel and adjustable sights. Perfect for range day, ranch work, or revolver competition shooting, the RM66 will also squeeze the best possible ballistics out of the .357 Magnum cartridge. Although this revolver is also stainless steel, it uses a square butt configuration, making the RM66 easier to shoot with full power magnums or 38 Specials.

Later this year, our 4-inch “do everything” revolver, the RM64, will join ranks with the RP63 and RM66. Four-inch medium frame revolvers chambered in .357 Magnum are widely regarded by experts as an optimal choice for a revolver that does a little bit of everything well. You can carry concealed, use it in the woods, hunt with it, defend your home with it, or even shoot IDPA with it. It features the same match-grade trigger as all the Rossi revolvers, and the same adjustable sights as the RM66.
