Rossi 454 Casull Lever Action w/20" Round Stainless Barrel/W
[R9268011 ]
$605.00
by Robert S Date Added: Saturday 18 February, 2012
Purchased this product with high expectations though perhaps too high. While the fit and finish of this rifle is good and it cycles the .454 it was rated for, this particular rossi proved temperamental when attempting to cycle .45lc, jamming the shorter cartridge it should cycle without issue into into the upper chamber wall. The action also requires a stiff yank of the lever to in induce the feed ramp into the proper position. Anything less would leave the round in the tube or in a half raised position, unlike the precision mechanics of my Marlin. Theoretically these problems could be solved by a competent gunsmith, though I shouldn't have to take a NIB firearm to said gunsmith in the first place. Sadly I could only find these issues out after accepting possession of the firearm from my FFL.

Fortunately I was able to find this rifle a good home, but am unlikely to buy a rossi product in the future. It rates three stars for the finish of the product and its ability to cycle the rated ammunition, nothing more.

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars! [3 of 5 Stars!]
