Medmann48: I just pulled the trigger & ordered the Rossi R223HBS full size rifle for $159.00 with Free Shipping, no tax & no credit card fees, how do you beat that? I was going to buy the Rossi .243 rifle but that ammo is damn expensive like $15 to $35 for 20 rounds. I can get Tulammo .223 from Walmart for $5.39 a box all day long.
radray19: Rossi's website sells other barrels for this Rifle/shotgun for around $161, so you can always get different barrels, you are'nt stuck with what you got.
Blue Collar Boys: Weaver Model 92a?
Blue Collar Boys: What scope mount are you using?
mrat ratlin: good little guns! my 7 year old killed a 8 point at over 400 yards with the 243 cal loaded with 100 grain Winchester power points. I set all my deer rifles 3in high at 100 yards so they will be dead on at 400 -1000 yards using a Simmons Deerfield scope . my 7 year old can group his shots at 200 yards that you can cover all of them with a quarter . as far as the guys comment below @ fireworxs2012 he ether cant shoot or don't know how to set a scope!
Fell Man: Are there such things as combination guns that come with ammo magazines? Ones that are divided into sections for the different ammo? Are such guns even possible?
Newtire: Tried to get Rossi to help with the defective .243 barrel but they gave me a song and dance about not honoring a warranty as their warranty is only good for one year, I bought it used so warranty is off, I shot handloads in it so voided the warranty. Many people out there have had bad luck with the .243 barrel so my guess is that they made more than just a few bad ones but their customer service department is very poor. I guess they don't care once you are stuck with one of their lemons.
Newtire: I took it out again with the pro-hunters and found a load that pretty much almost touches the lands of the rifling but gives 2750 fps with a 100 gr. Sierra Pro Hunter and I managed to get a 2" group for 5-shots at 100 yards. Not so hot for a target rifle but OK for an emergency high power rifle in a pinch and actually, decent hunting accuracy out to around 200 yards I suppose. Mine is strictly a handloading proposition though. Great trigger and .22 accuracy is fantastic. So that's my report.
donnie inman: Im from spartanburg sc usa i have the 22 cal. But i need 20gauge andthe237 barral does anyone know where i can get it
Newtire: I was impressed by the amount of gun you get for the price so bought one. Shotgun and .22 barrel work great but you have to alter the 92a Weaver base to make it fit. Also, the .243 barrel has so long of a throat that you have to seat the bullets out to where you have only about 6mm of bullet still in the case. Normal length ammo won't hit a 2 foot target at 100 yds. Varmint or Cast bullets are not doable. I am experimenting with bullets and Sierra Pro Hunter 100 gr.seem to fit. 3" groups.
naturebc: That's not a combo gun. Just replaceable barrels.
ENTERPRISE1942: yes they do, I have the Pick-4 in. 22LR / 410. shotgun / 20 gauge shotgun / and 243. Winchester for about $350, but I am looking to sell or trade it, im in ohio, PM if interested.
Dr.EdwardRichtofen: Im buying a 20 gauge. 243 combofot
Melody Burlison: thats nice
econewpower: The front screw mount is firmly welded to the barrel and appears to be very well made. Thanks for the comment.
iam1inamil: i also wonder if the front screw mount [on the barrel itself] ,is of dependable quality?
...maybe ask a gunsmith to look at it so you can have no surprises in the future?
iam1inamil: hopefully the 20 gauge is modified or full choke.....i wonder if a slug would mess up a full choke
Cthulhublanca: Dang. I guess ATI makes their stock so it fits any of the frames, but the barrel to frame fit is another matter. Maybe a gunsmith could get the various barrels to fit the frames without too much expense. Sure would be nice.
econewpower: None of the Rossi barrels fit each other frames regardless if they are for youth or adults. The only rifle that Rossi makes with fully interchangeable barrels is the Wizard. My nine year old son used his Rossi .22LR single shot rifle this weekend to shoot three rabbits, offhand from the standing position, those little rifles are very accurate. He hasn't wanted to use the .410 gauge barrel yet, but when he does, he is going to love it. Thanks
