Rossi 22LR Pump



Log in to see fewer ads
I friend of mine just got a Rossi 22 LR pump gallery gun, not really sure how long range accurate it is, but it is sure fun for plinking. It a lot lighter and shorter that my Henry pump.

I was looking at the new ones and there have been problems with cracked receivers. The size and weight are great but they are built cheap.

My LGS has 10 of them. I was thinking about picking one up. Did not know they were having receiver cracking problems. Will have to read up on that.

I have two of the old ones.
Fun shooters!
Plenty accurate for squirrel and plinking.

Rossi Gallery Special .22

I have owned a Gallery pump .22 for 46 years. I have enjoyed the little rifle more than most of my other guns. It is a pleasure to shoot. I bought it in 1975 and I have had no problems with it even after thousands of rounds of plinking.

My brother got a Rossi pump back in the mid 70's. He was about 12 or so. We came in from prairie dog hunting one day and my dad said are your guns empty? I had my action open on my Rem. 512. My brother didn't have his action open. He opened the action and promptly closed it and had his finger on the trigger. POW!
Needless to say he was grounded. And we had a hole in the wall.

I later bought a Rossi 22 Gallery model and loved it. It was a well made rifle. I sold it later because I couldn't stand having a gun made in Brazil and not the USA. That was the 70's.

My Rossi M62SAC is a wonderful rifle - I am wondering if the receiver cracking posted above are about the Henry pumps also mentioned above?

I have attempted to read every Rossi thread since I joined RFC ~10 years ago, and I've also never heard of this relating to the Rossi rimfires.
I don't frequent the Henry subforum though, so I am little confused as well.

I broke down and bought one, itís stiff and a little bit bulky, my friend says he was like that out of the box, but it smooths out with use. I installed a Skinner peep sight on it. We shall see.

About 15 years ago I bought a Taurus model 62 Takedown.
It has a 16" barrel and takes down at the receiver with a simple thumb screw.
Very well built, very compact, a sweet little rifle.
A great farm gun.
