    Taurus buys Rossi lock,stock, and barrel

    Big Ugly Tall Texan brings us this from a Taurus News Release.


    Forjas Taurus S.A. announces its acquisition of the manufacturing and distribution rights of all Rossi products, including the famous Model 92 lever-action rifle from Rossi Firearms S.A.

    Rossi Firearms S.A. is the industry-leading manufacturer of single-shot, matched pair rifles and shotguns. In addition, they produce Rossi black powder muzzle loading rifles and youth size mini loaders. Forjas Taurus will continue to manufacture the current line of Rossi revolvers.

    Taurus will expand its manufacturing capabilities and dedicate additional funding for research and development for new Rossi products. Distribution of all Rossi products in the U.S. will continue through BrazTech International in Miami.

    Taurus International, a U.S. leader in quality affordable firearms is a division of Forjas Taurus S.A. We have enjoyed our association with Rossi USA for the past 10 years and have helped with its dramatic growth in U.S. sales over the past several years. I look forward to the continuation of current product production and rapid development of new and innovative models to be introduced in the near future, said Bob Morrison, President & CEO of Taurus International.

    This acquisition integrates perfectly with the high quality firearms currently produced by Taurus International and offered worldwide through its global distribution network. Taurus International and BrazTech International will continue to operate as two separate divisions adds Morrison, while shipping, sales and operations will be performed out of the company U.S. headquarters in Miami. Production of Rossi Firearms will continue, uninterrupted at Forjas Taurus’ facilities in São Leopoldo, Brazil. All current Rossi staff will be retained.

    We'll all have to see exactly where this goes. Sky's the limit.

    With LSI no longer selling the Rossi Pums 92 carbine in .454 Casull, will Taurus eventually offer it? I own one, bought from LSI, and would like to know if we can buy more of them in the future.

    What "better" improvements are you talking about? I'm curious.

    Just recently purchased a 462 and have excellent service from it. Most others here who have Rossis report the same findings.

    Anyone have any safety concerns with the firing pin being on the hammer on Rossi's?

    It still has the hammer block, will not hit the firing pin, unless the trigger is pulled.

    All the gun writers have said there's been a noticeable improvement in quality in their reviews. That inludes the police gun writer instructors.
