Rossi "Voluntary Safety Warning"

https://www.rossisafetynotice.com/

There's a Serial Number Search tool on that page to easily see if your model is affected.

Quote:
Rossi is issuing a voluntary safety warning on .38 Special and .357 Magnum revolvers made between the years 2005 and 2017 that may have a condition that could cause, under certain circumstances, the revolver to fire if dropped

This Safety Warning covers .38 Special and .357 Magnum revolver models R351, R352, 461, R462, R851, R971, and R972 with serial numbers beginning with the letter Y, Z, or A through K.

Rossi is developing inspection and repair solutions. Rossi will make every effort possible to ensure Rossi Revolvers will be inspected, serviced if necessary, and returned to customers in a prompt, timely fashion.

SEARCH YOUR SERIAL NUMBER

TYPE SERIAL NUMBER HERE
IF YOUR SERIAL NUMBER IS FOUND, STOP USING YOUR REVOLVER IMMEDIATELY AND FOLLOW OUR INSTRUCTIONS SO WE CAN INSPECT AND, IF NECESSARY, REPAIR YOUR REVOLVER.



ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN:
Stop using your revolver immediately.

Call 855-982-8787 for assistance.

If you no longer have this revolver, please inform current owner of this notice.

We appreciate your business and value you as a customer.

Well, with if no brand name were mentioned it could be part of the Smith & Wesson family:

Or possibly the Sig family (and then lie and say its not a defect):

I have a R462. Right after I got it that little safety bar inside that supposed to stop hammer from accidentally striking broke. unfortunately I was at the range, fully loaded and fully cocked. Freaked me out. Called the rto over and took them several minutes to get the pieces aside enough to uncock and unload. Rossi took it back and fixed for free.
