The Rossi revolution of firearm design and manufacture started with
the founding of the company in 1889 by Amadeo Rossi. Over
the last 115 years, that tradition has grown along with the company
and the Rossi Family. The Rossi name represents a piece of
firearm history and a tradition of excellence.
the years, Rossi firearms has led the way in design and engineering.
At the same time, it has always been important to produce an affordable
product without sacrificing any quality or accuracy.
In December of 1997 BrazTech International L.C. was created as the
exclusive importer of Rossi firearms in North America.
Rossi firearms were distributed by Interarms of Alexandria, Virginia. Rossi
manufactures its classic rifles in a plant in San Leopoldo, Brazil
and will continue operations there, selling many firearms outside
the United States and North America.
At the same time, Forjas Taurus, S.A. purchased the rights and the
equipment to manufacture Rossi handguns. Taurus manufactures
three models of .38 Special revolvers and four models of .357 Magnum
revolvers under contract with Rossi. Revolvers sold by BrazTech
with the Rossi name are manufactured in a brand new facility owned
by Taurus in SaoLeopoldo, Brazil. Much of the tooling and
many of the machines were acquired from Rossi during negotiations
between the companies.
Rossi is still run by the same family and they put the same dedication
and innovation into every firearm. At Rossi, it is more than
just building guns...it is a family's history and tradition.
