    A good friend just bought this Rossi 38 spcl. It is a “bodyguard” type revolver, 5 shots, DAO (there is a "slot" where you can see the hammer, like in the S&W 38/49, but you can not cock it).
    It came with a big wood grips – now it has rubber Pachmayr.

    The box says it is a “model 627”, but in the inside of the crane it says “726” ( I do not know where Rossi's are supossed to have their model written)

    I was looking for information about this revolver – model 627 or model 726 - but found nothing. Does somebody know anything about this gun?

    Thanks for your help.

    Odd. The worst of both worlds, an open slot in the frame for grime to enter, without the benefit of a single action trigger.

    I am a tad confused as why the manufacturer would shroud the hammer and then bob it ( IF the intent was No SA function). As to the alternative of internal hammer. Hmmm... maybe just me...

    Don't get the idea I'm downing the pistol... just find it odd.
