Welcome to the Information Website for the Rossi Revolver Settlement

A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit claiming that certain Rossi brand revolvers are defective in that they could unintentionally fire when dropped. The Defendants Forjas Taurus, S.A., and BrazTech International L.C. (doing business under the brand “Rossi”) issued a warning about these safety concerns in September 2018. Rossi, however, denies all allegations of wrongdoing and liability alleged in the lawsuit, and the Court has not decided who is right. The parties have agreed to settle.

The Settlement includes owners of Rossi brand .38 Special and .357 Revolver models made between January 1, 2005, and December 31, 2017 (called the “Class Revolvers”). Class Revolvers will have Serial Numbers beginning with the letters A through K, Y or Z. Anyone who was prompted to visit this website (including distributors and dealers), if you have sold or otherwise transferred a Class Revolver to someone else, please inform the current owner.

The Settlement establishes two benefits. Once you file your claim you will be eligible for the "Enhanced Warranty" and will receive a box, a shipping label, and instructions to send in their Class Revolvers for inspection, repair if necessary, certification, and cleaning, all free of charge (including shipping, labor, and parts). Additionally, once you have shipped your Revolver under the Enhanced Warranty you will receive a $50 cash Inconvenience Payment.

THE SETTLEMENT DOES NOT INCLUDE CLAIMS FOR PERSONAL INJURY.

These rights and options–and the deadlines to exercise them–are explained in the Notice and FAQ.
