Here Are 5 Brazilian Revolvers That Are Just As Good Or Better Than American Guns

I know  several guys that won’t touch a Rossi, or Taurus handgun, they consider them cheap and substandard  and while that may have been true 30 years ago, times and quality have changed and either one of these two companies make some very good quality firearms.

Speaking for myself, I own the Taurus 1911 and I couldn’t be happier with it.

But since we’re talking about revolvers, Taurus and Rossi have most certainly upped their game and can take their seat at the table with any of the other ‘big boys’, like Colt, Ruger, or  Smith & Wesson.

Here’s a little history you probably didn’t know:

Founded in 1982, Taurus Holdings, Inc. is a Georgia based holding company which owns some of the most robust firearms brands currently available on the US Market. Taurus Holdings is owned by the famous publicly Brazilian firm Taurus Armas, S.A. Taurus Armas not only builds the firearms for which it is rightfully famous, but also an incredible array of globally distributed consumer and industrial products.


  • Taurus International Manufacturing Inc. (Taurus)
  • Heritage Manufacturing, Inc. (Heritage)
  • Braztech International, LC (Rossi)

At its Bainbridge, Georgia facilities, Taurus Holdings companies manufacture an incredible array of products from traditional single action revolvers, to pistols and revolvers of various designs, and long guns ranging from classic single shots to modern semi-autos.
