I have a rossi .38 special i'm looking to trade in on a ruger lcr and i've been looking online for an idea of what one would go for used. The problem is I can't find a .38 that looks exactly like the one i have. I thought it was an 851 but all the 851's i find online have gaps on the top of the barrel like this one

Mine looks more like the 971 pictured here with no gaps along the top of the barrel.

this is my only revolver and i never spent much time with it so i don't know much about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated

IMO, you are better off to save up about $200 more towards your purchase, because that's about what you will get for it in trade at an LGS. Maybe $250. Maybe.

Keep it.

Yeah, I hate to say it because we have 2 Taurus pistols. Taurus and Rossi are not worth much as trade-in value. If you can get $150-$200 trade-in you have done well.

You are better off to keep it if it is good shooter. Save up the full price for your new purchase and make the Rossi a night stand gun or keep in the vehicle gun.
