I was able to handle one at a LGS and was not impressed. The old Rossi Gallery Guns were clones of the Winchester model 62, but these are designed differently. When you pump the action you have to be very careful that hammer does not come back and pinch your hand. I don't remember the old Rossi's having that issue. The overall build quality seemed cheap with the overuse of plastic. I just couldn't get excited by this gun.
