    I had a couple over the years. They were made as you say by Rossi, in Brazil, who have since been bought by Taurus. FIE was the US importer of the product. They were made in 22lr, which is what both of mine were, as well as 32 of some unknown dimensions. I was never able to find one of the 32's however. IIRC correctly I sold them for around $200 each, at different times but within the last 8-10 years. Here is a thread from another site that has some additional info.

    Very popular with the very poor in South America who can't afford to carry any thing better. Rossie tested the waters by offering them in the US prior to 1968 but the North Americanos didn't take to a double SXS derringers. The ones sold in SA are usually in .320 caliber and many are smooth bore.
