They're made by Tarus in Brazil, and they have a pretty loyal following for their pistols. As far as the Rossi rifle side I don't own one or do I know anybody who does... but I hope you didn't trade a good shotgun for it since they are a relatively cheap gun.
Sorry Ron, Bad choice. I had a 223 and 22mag, took a bath trading them when I couldn't get the 223 to shoot any tighter than a pie plate at 200yrds and the 22mag barrel moved POI as it warmed up. Won't ever think about a Rossi for anything except a fence post again.
Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.
I bought one for my son in 30-06. It's accurate enough to kill a deer at 100 yards, but as others have said, no tack driver. I expected better results from a single shot rifle, but I guess you get what you pay for.
Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook
