I am thinking of getting a Rossi single shot center fire rifle and I was wondering if I get one can the barrels be easily changed to other calibers? Also does anyone have any input on these as to how they perform?
I have a rossi heavy barrel 223 and it has served me better than i would ever have imagined. numerous ground hog kills at 500 yards. more than i can remember at 300 yards and every range in between. i even got a doe this year with one well placed heart and lung shot. easily shoots 0.75 at 100 yards with 55gr ammo. i love the gun. good luck!
Yeah I have seen mixed reviews, but some people do like them, and you now how people just hate stuff sometimes. I got it off the guy so know I am trying to figure out if I can get other barrels for it. It seems it may be tough being an older model.
I bought one for my son, I'm not real impressed with the rifle (30-06), I can't get much of a grouping past 100 yards or so. The shotgun barrel works just fine. I may have just gotten a dud, I'm not sure. If I ever want another single shot, I'll buy an Encore.

I sold a bunch of them when I worked as a lodge mgr at Dick's years back. About 50% came back with issues. One run in particular had a bad habit of unlocking at the shot and we even had one customer take a .243 brass right to his eye ball! He was not a happy camper! Those ethings are garbage imo.

I have one in a .223 and it shoots fairly well for a single shot with a stiff trigger. I group 2" @ 100yards. I bought it thinking I could get replacement barrels just like you are and called up rossi to get another caliber but was told they will not make other barrels for the guns like H&R used to.
Life is like a coin, you can spend it anywhere you like, but you can only spend it once.
Other than the barrels that come in the combo packages you can't buy other barrels, except for the Rossi Wizard. I bought a Wizard in 3006 and a 7.62x39 barrel. I also have a Rossi combo 20 gage and 50cal in-line, the combo barrels won't work on the Wizard.
