    brownells.com would be a likely source.

    I'm not sure it would be worth it though. A working example can be had for
    less than $50 if that is what you are into.

    Good luck.

    Welcome to THR! Hope you enjoy your stay with us.

    Contact Rossi USA (click here for their Web site) and ask their Customer Service dept. for assistance.

    I've only ever seen two of these guns. They were in 22lr and the barrels were side by side with hammers. I have a feeling these were not standard Rossi products for US consuption, they seem fairly rare on the market.

    I believe Moonclip is right

    Those SxS handguns seemed to have been popular down in South America. Back when Brazil was doing one of their many "buyback" programs, I was thrilled (in the "esoteric geek" sense, not political sense) to see that there were a bunch of break-top SxS derringers in the pile.

    I can't recall for the life of me what the name is for those little "gaucho guns". I've only seen one for sale once, some .32 3" double-barrel for $250 at a gunshop in CA. I'd buy one for $50 just to play gaucho, but that's about it...

    Not specifically about your Rossi, but about "garruchas" in general:
