    Rossi .410/.22

    I am considering buying a Rossi single shot .410 shotgun/.22 rifle. The price is $150.
    Is this a fair price used, and if so, is the .410 shotgun shell effective for rabbit hunting?
    Any help or info would be great, thanks in advance.

    The 410 shotgun is the only gun my father used ever!

    He never failed to get his quota rabbits, or squirrels with it. I still have it and it is a simple gun, with low recoil that you can hunt with all day. Mine is a bolt action, 3+1.

    I came close twice to buying that rifle/shotgun. And I still may buy it for my son, I really liked it.

    Seems like Dicks Sporting Goods had it on sale for $99 around Thanksgiving/Christmas the last two years. You might see if they know when it will go on sale.

    .410 is good to go for rabbits and squirrels, and birds if you're real good, and my dad has killed deer with slugs and buckshot. IIRC, there was a serial killer in Arizona who was shooting pedestrians from a vehicle with a .410 and it was pretty effective. I saw the gun you're talking about at a gunshow, and I was tempted to buy it. The ones I saw had optional 20 ga barrel and .243 barrel as well, and came in a carrying bag so you could easily take all 3 barrells with you. Pretty neat gun for the money I thought.

    they go for about 160 new. check out www.galleryofguns.com to see if there is a dealer in your area. you can view all of the different combos there too. use the gun genie to find what you want.
    also its available in .22lr, 410ga, 20ga, .223, and .243. and you can get it with 2,3,4 barrels.
    I'll keep my guns, freedom, and money.
    You can keep the "change".

    Got one few years ago at Dicks for $99, youth size handy little firearm. They intented to come out with a barrel program where you'd send in your receiver & they'd fit other barrels but never did. They have a new model out that has factory interchangable barrels. I'd price those new before buying a Match Pair or Triple just because you will be able to get muzzleloader or centerfire rifle barrel later. 410's are fine except the price of ammo compared to 20, and that it's not legal for deer here.

    Re: Rossi .410/.22

    I bought the youth model for my son a month ago. I got it from Walmart for $117. It is a nice little setup. The 22 is pretty accurate and has very nice adj. fiber optic sights. The .410 has a suprising amount of kick, It felt almost as hard as my 12gauge auto. This is due to the light weight of the gun and no recoil pad. I was very impressed by the little gun. The barrel does a really good job of ejecting the rounds. Infact you need to be careful not to shoot a hot 22 case straight into you face the first few times you break the action. The fit and the finish of the gun is very nice considering the price. The blueing is very nice and deep.

    Re: Rossi .410/.22

    My only curiosity is with the .22 barrel, as I once had a break open Steven 22/.410 over/under. The .410 worked great, but I had a fair share of misfires with the .22 in not always getting a well lined up strike on the .22 rim. A cup primer does well with a rounded end firing pin, a .22 does well with a flat ended firing pin, has any allowance been made for that? I can't ever remember not taking a rabbit or squirrel with every .410 I ever shot at them. Also a lot of fun seeing how many birds you can drop out of an elm tree with one shot.

    Re: Rossi .410/.22

    I haven't shot it to much probably 50 rounds and I didn't get a single missfire. It seems to line up well with the rim and work well. I had heard on another post that someone else had that problem but I haven't (knock on wood) It also looks like they counter bored a small divit in the barrel were the rim sits so if you dryfired the pin wouldn't hit the barrel.

    Re: Rossi .410/.22

    Wow. great advice guys. Like I said, it's used, and he is asking $150, so if he goes down closer to $100 I will buy it. I just want it for rabbit and grouse hunting, sounds like it will work fine for that. Thanks for all the great tips, you guys are the tops!
