Pic of said rifle?
I joined this forum because I purchased a new Rossi RS22 magnum. There is absolutely nothing other than the catalog description available on the web. I bought it anyway because the Long rifle version is such a good buy and a good little shooter. The few other Semi auto 22wmr rifles out there are all over twice the price of the Rossi. The Savage A22 is not quite twice and was the one I was going to buy until I saw the Rossi. Turns out the Rossi and the Savage share a lot of design features. I do like the rotary magazine on the Savage but you can't have it all. Now I have had my Rossi for a couple of weeks and have been to the range twice. It did have some initial issues but I actually like this rifle and am working to make it a perfect little gun for the money. Now I am long winded so here is what I am doing and this is all "work in process". I have written (am writing) a long winded review/description/tips manuscript. I have also copied the Rossi manual and put it in PDF form. Unless I am told I cannot share this manual I will provide a link to my Google drive where the manual and my Wordpad RTF file (can probably provide Open Document or XML format if requested). I am also trying to do some pictures and maybe some videos (slow motion video of the bolt stripping rounds and feeding into barrel). There are so many good reviewers making videos I am hoping some will get to this gun when it becomes more available. Right now I just hope that some rank amateur does not get a rifle and badmouth it because of some problems which are easily remedied.
One more quick comment. I carry a Kel-Tec 3AT for my primary carry. When they came out they were bad mouthed for not being reliable. Well the "Fluff and Buff" that is recommended on their forum has made mine as reliable as my Ruger LC9 or my Walther/Smith P99. That is basically what this Rossi needs, a little fine tuning and buffing that could be done at the factory. Price might go up so I can do it myself.

Excuse background. Not prepared yet. When I previewed this the pictures were huge. Maybe they will look normal when posted
Wow, what's the distance on those targets? Looks like you've got a good rifle there!

I am sooo jealous....Nice pickup and shooting.

That's a good looking rifle. Very nice shooter from the looks of it.
50 yard. Cheap Simmons 22 Magnum scope, Simmons rings. This is the most serious I got. Circles are 3/8" between lines. Shooting off Caldwell corncob filled shooting bags. Most shots were trying different bullet weights and loads. Different brands trying to find out which ones feed best and group best. Yes, I am starting to really like this gun.
Nice shooting! And a nice rifle
Nice rifle and shooting.
Live what you say you believe.
I haven't seen any yet in .22WMR. Good looking rifle, congrats!
Are we there yet?
