Those who own certain Rossi brand .38 Special or .357 revolver models could be eligible to participate in a settlement as part of a class action lawsuit.

The Brazilian-based firearms maker, who since 1997 has been owned by Taurus, announced the settlement earlier this month. Last September, Taurus warned that certain Rossi brand revolvers may, under certain circumstances, fire if dropped. Further, it cautioned the guns should not be used or carried until they have been inspected and/or repaired.

This month’s settlement announcement covers models R35102, R35202, R85104, R97206, R97104, R46202 and R46102 made between 2005 and 2017. The revolvers have a serial number stamped on the frame beginning with the letters Y, Z, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, or K.

The settlement establishes an “Enhanced Warranty” allowing current or future owners to send in their revolvers in for inspection, repair if necessary, certification, and cleaning, all free of charge to include shipping, labor, and parts. Moreover, each owner who files a valid claim under the warranty will receive a $50 cash “Inconvenience Payment.”

The settlement does not include claims for personal injury and the company “denies all allegations of wrongdoing and liability,” brought by the lawsuit.
