    Model 62 ss .22 lr

    Just picked one up and I think I like it... Anybody got any information on the Model 62? I won't pick it up 'til the weekend,

    and probably paid too much for it, but I've been wanting a .22. I paid a guy 50 bucks for a rem Model 12 that I thought

    I could restore. Turned out after another $150 it would would shoot anything but straight. Not sure how much was me and how

    much was the gun... I traded it off and found this little Model 62. I have been happy with my 24/7 and 66b4,

    so I figure what the heck! Anyway, if you have anything that would help, that would be GREAT! Thanks in advance...

    I have a model 62 gallery (the short carbine) and I've had it for about 25 years, actually a Rossi. I killed about 35-40 prairie dogs with it the first time I took it out. Never a moments problem, my oldest son did lose the plunger tube and I had to replace it. To keep the gun from shooting high, I had to completely remove the elevator tab.

    If the above post about that many pasture poodles is hard to believe, it was in a 3 year old P. dog town that the doggies had never been shot at, and I was on a 4-wheeler shooting most at about 60 feet or less. The next day the survivors were a lot smarter.

    Mine is a Rossi also, was given to me by my grandfather when I was 8. In the last 30years I have put thousands upon thousands of rounds through it. Mine is very accurate and the only problems I have had were the extractor. 3 or 4 times in it's life it starts failing to extract, I just remove the extractor and give it a little tweak to improve tension and it will run for a few more years.

    My favorite part of the rifle is the fact that it is not a picky eater. Short, Long, LR even CBs all no problem.

    I have Taurus stainless 62 and had a Rossi carbine model which I have since given to my son. Both are good shooters. Reliable, no problems to note. I liked the Rosssi cause it didn't have the "cheesy" safety on the receiver top but I prefer the Taurus only because it has a longer sight radius and my old eyes need all the help they can get.
