Like it Rossi RS22

Just picked up the Rossi RS22 a week ago from my lgs for $107.05 out the door.

Cleaned the barrel sprayed the rest down with Hornady One Shot. Mounted and bore sighted a Simmons 3 X 9. Loaded it up with Thunderbolt for break in. 6 shots later at 30 yards we were on zero shooting off a make shift bench. Nickel sized groups at that range made this senior citizen happy. I like it better than my Mossberg 702 Plinkster. Both guns have been reliable so far with no problems.

The triggers while not great are acceptable and better than the trigger on my Marlin 60 SS with Laminated stock also purchased this year.

It's cheap, light weight, shoulders well, and gets an A++ for value.

Picked one up yesterday

With the weather starting to cooperate and a couple much needed vacation days I was finally able to get a little target time in, my first time out since last September. I stopped into my LGS yesterday and he had one of the RS22ís and for the price ($139 out the door) I couldnít pass it up.

I was a little skeptical due to the price and I was unable to find a lot of online reviews. Iím glad to see the mostly positive posts on RFC on this. Hopping to get it to the range next weekend.

My RS.22 has been flawless, no issues whatsoever, and very accurate. Put a decent scope on it and have loads of fun.
Paid $98 and change at my LGS

Last shot hold open and the ability to push the bolt handle in to hold the bolt back. When the last shot is fired, removing the mag allows the bolt to close. The follower fouls the bolt after the last shot is fired. The mag release lever has one heck of a strong spring. I'd change that. I still may buy one in hopes the barrel itself isn't the reason the precision is poor.
Mine will consistently do 1.5". I don't think it and I can do much better.
If you want MOA, I think you must get a better and more expensive rifle.
A CZ will do MOA all day, every day, rain, snow, sleet, hail, locusts...etc

My grandfather got one of these for free at academy a while back when he bought a taurus pistol. We got it out yesterday and shot it for the first time. I cleaned it first and despite that it wouldn't extract a round every 3rd or 4th shot. I would have to take a cleaning rod and pop the spent round out. The casing had scratches around it like the chamber was too tight. I shot federal bulk cci standard and aquila super extra did it will all three brands. Anybody experienced this or got any suggestions?

I'm very happy with my 3 RS22 and 1 RB22. My average price for my 4 rifles was $110.00 (not including FFL transfer). So far, they've been exactly what I hoped for... cheap, accurate firearms. Although, I must say that I don't look forward to cleaning them the same way I look forward to cleaning my handguns. If I could change only one thing, it'd be that, take down and cleaning process.

My favorite set up of the bunch: RS22 (in OD color), Feyachi or Simmons scope mounted on Redfield 1" See Thru Scope Rings for 3/8 dovetail mounting systems.

Got a black RS22 otw.

Found it for $97 at gundocks.com in KY. Bought an additional mag for $16. Shipping was $20.

Got a scope a friend gave to me waiting to go on it when I get some rings. Probably going to remove the open sights and drop the scope down as far as possible.

I've built a dueling tree and plan to compete against my son and his gf for bragging rights (she shoots pretty good!). He's got a cheap Savage and she has a cheap Marlin semi with scopes. We'll see how the Rossi does.

Looking forward to it!

EDIT: Came in -



Took it apart and lubed it, took the hood off the front sight, dropped some red paint in the sight adjustment markings and arrow in charging handle, added some weight to the fore-end and butt of the stock. Trigger didn't seem terrible.



The mag release has an annoying need to be held down completely to remove the magazine, even after the mag has been disengaged. It looks like the spotwelds on the edge of the mag at the top drag on the release unless you hold it down completely. I tried smoothing the welds but it didn't make much difference, so then I filled the divots with JB Weld and will sand it smooth when cured. We'll see if it cures the issue.
