Wow bobn...You turned everything upside down! Especially the comment that the Interarms Rossi is rude all the way around. I just bid on an Interarms Rossi due to the earlier responses so...can you share in a bit more detail?

It seems as though my question carried more weight than i thought. I looks as though we have 4 or 5 different rifles that we are now talking about here.

The early Rossi Garcia, The later Rossi Garcia, the Rossi Interarms, the Taurus Interarms and the Taurus Interarms Mag.

I was getting the impresssion that these were all fairly fine rifles....Now?

I agree, they are fine rifles. but guns change throughout the years of manufacturing from any company.....heck I have had navy arms 92 lever guns purchased in the same calendar year and you would swear there was two different builders. I am not sure you can identify a bad year on the rossi guns just that my three guns do vary.
fwiw, i would not sell any of them and regret selling the later Taurus 22 mag version....bobn

Here is my Rossi Model 62 SAC In Nickle finish.

I'll put it up against any of the other pumps - including my Winchester Model 62A.

It looks good, handles great, and shoots as well as needed.

Thanks guys for the clarification...That Mag in nickle is SWEEEEET! I like them in blue too...they show a nice worn patina in blue after time...which I personally find attractive.

Overall... You gotta love those carbines!!

My Rossi 62 Carbine was my first ever gun, my Dad gave it to me when I was 8-9 or so.

I don't shoot it that much anymore (I did take a couple of jackrabbits with it a couple of years ago, for old times' sake).
However, I've still put more rounds through it than all my other firearms, combined.

A very fun gun to shoot, my wife was hankering for mine until I purchased a different .22 rifle for her.

Speaking of the MAG version of this rifle....any comments, criticisms or accolades?

I've had a Taurus with that top safety in .22 WRM for years now. I'd removed the rear sight & replaced it with the Weaver type base that Taurus sold for mounting a long eye relief pistol scope. It originally wore a 2X Nikon, which has since moved over to one of my contender handguns & been replaced with a Simmons 2X on the pump. I've never had a bit of problem with it, A hoot of a set up for plinking @ moving targets, thought that's gotten pretty heavy on the wallet with the current prices of .22 WRM ammo. Still choke when I see the current prices being asked for .22 WRM and then look at the price tag on my stash & see $5.99 per.

well for what it is worth I went to a 22 silhouette shoot in harris on sat. while I an not a top shooter I did have a lot of fun.
...my kimber hunter and Nikon 22 rimfre scope did well at the 50 meters, 100 meters and 150 meter. did not master the 200 meters though.
...now for the rossi report, of the two that I bought the most recent production interarms version shot the best. once I got the sight picture figured out i nailed the 50 meters open sight targets down. what is funny that's the gun that the wood sucks and the bluing is more like blacking. oh well.
....the older score master pmc ammo shoot well but it is now all gone. the jury is still out on the newer aguilla super extra. bobn

My Rossi

Hi guys,
This is my first post here. I inherited a Rossi 22 pump action rifle with the serial number G289795, 22S- LORLR, I need help on further information on it. It has a box magazine.
