Rossi R44102 Comes Back at Taurus

Postby ironhead7544 » 20 Oct 2015 07

The 44 Mag 2" Rossi revolver is now showing up as a Taurus in stainless. No porting. More expensive of course.

I work at a sporting goods store and saw it on one of our suppliers websites. Couldnt find anything on a web search yet. Will cost about the same as the regular Tracker.

Did a little more research. Impact and Cheaper than Dirt show it as a Talo version.

I wouldn't buy from CtD unless there was no other option.

Yeah, no kidding!

I have a Talo Taurus M44C which is the same which is the pistol in question. Unfortunately, it cost me quite a bit more than the Rossi offered through Academy Sports. Here it is against my nephew's R44102.

Amen! I wouldn't buy from them if there were no other option. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Their business practices leave a lot to be desired.
At my age, there IS nothing better than shooting.

Yep, I remember 6-8 years ago during the previous ammunition crunch ... same time as the micro 380's were all the rage .... CTD listed a single box of Blazer Brass .380 for the "sale price" of $59.95 (seems that the normal price was $12-15). That little episode lost them a whole lot of customers.

Always felt their name was an Oxymoron as it applied to them.

The worse thing that the do is split the order amongst their various warehouse and charge you the additional shipping. Back when I used them I had an order of three items, all the same magazines, but it ended up that the inventory level was actually one in each warehouse. I had to paid a shipping charge from each warehouse rather than one. The magazines were hard to find but when they arrived on staggered days and I saw my credit card bill, I hit the ceiling. I did return them and they did refund all my money and I never have bought from them again. They are jerks!
