Rossi’s firearm design and manufacturing started with the company’s founding in 1889 by Amadeo Rossi. Over the last 131 years, the Rossi brand has represented a piece of firearm history and a tradition of excellence.

Over the years, firearms bearing the Rossi name have led the way in design and engineering while remaining an affordable product without sacrificing quality.

Rossi produces pistols and revolvers used by civilians and security forces, and exports worldwide. It is considered one of the largest weapons manufacturers in Brazil.

Rossi manufactures its classic rifles in a plant in Sao Leopoldo, Brazil, selling many firearms outside the United States and North America.

The same family still runs today’s Rossi, putting 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.


Rossi Firearms just released their new Thompson Contender-inspired, single-shot, break-action, hammer-fired pistol, the Brawler.
