Rossi's Octagon Barrel models are a whole different breed than their less-expensive round barrel models. Mine is put together like a Swiss watch. The Fit, Finish, and Function is as good as the Henry Big Boy I purchased from Bud's a couple of months ago. It's that's good. The trigger pull is crisp with no creep or grinding and breaks cleanly at exactly 4.5 lbs. The hammer pull is also as smooth as glass as is the lever function. Both the stock and forend fit flush to the receiver, butt plate, etc. and is a very nice oiled finish. It's properly filled and looks like walnut. The colored case hardening seems to be a chemical process rather than an actual case hardening process but that's pretty much standard these days. The butt plate, end cap and action are all colored and it looks really nice. The 20 inch carbine came with an extra tang screw so you can mount a vernier tang sight if you like but the standard sights are well-aligned and works fine just as it is. I took my new little baby out to the boonies yesterday on a cold snowy day here in Northern Nevada and ran several loads through her. Nary a glitch as all loads fed, chambered, and extracted perfectly and smoothly. I was surprised to find that even my 180 gr. lead bullet .357 Magnum handload with a very wide pug nose also fed perfectly. However, I didn't test fire any 38 Special loads yesterday. I don't particularly like the safety device but that's what political correctness has done to the firearm industry these days. It can only be set on SAFE when the hammer is either on half-cock or full-cock which pretty much makes it useless. The narrow crescent butt plate will probably bite just a bit but I was wearing a heavy coat yesterday so recoil felt quite tame. One interesting thing that I noted was that Braztech is now only giving a 1-Year Warranty these days rather than their Lifetime Warranty. However, if you start swapping out the springs or using handloads, you'll void the warranty anyway. Before I received this carbine, I purchased Lee's Gunsmithing Spring Kit. Maybe it's needed on the round barrel models but mine absolutely doesn't need it as it's perfect as-is. This carbine is an absolute delight and I highly recommend it.
And as usual, THANKS BUD!

Looks nice but once again the wood is oversized, does not look authentic because of that, case Harding is not very good either. Stick with the carbine versions, they are of Better quality.

Received the rifle yesterday, brought it home and did a simple clean up. Took it out to the range and shot about 50 rounds through it trying to sight it in. Finally noticed (after moving the rear sight) that the front sight was off. After getting everything back to where it should have been from the factory it shot very well. Fit and finish on this one is pretty darn good for the price. really like the balance and feel. will be shooting it a lot more in the coming days.
One thing I did notice right away was that I could move the rear sight with a good amount of pressure from my thumb, might have to shim that, not a deal breaker at all.
I would not hesitate to recommend this rifle, fun to shoot and looks good doing it.

Great looking rifle! The octagon barrel and case harden receiver are fantastic looking. Looking forward to take it to the gun range after the holidays. Will give an update then. Buds shipped the rifle Monday morning. I got it Tuesday noon. They give great service!! Will purchase more guns from them.
