Well, after quite a long recovery for my hip, AND staring at my 2 new Rossi rifles for all that time, I finally made it to the range yesterday.
I took the Rossi Rio Bravo, and the Gallery gun out for their maiden voyage. I was just shooting some different ammo, including Remington GB, Federal Auto-Match, and some CCI Blazers. Both of the rifles mechanically handled all of the different ammo, even as I purposely mixed them up to see if they would feed. Everything cycled fine, and the actions were both smooth.

I put a Simmons 3-9x32 scope on the Gallery. The action was a bit stiff, but still smooth. It did loosen up as I was shooting, and I'm sure it will get even better with more rounds through it. I was shooting at 50 yards, after I was sighted in. I really like this rifle, and has the 'cool factor', and sighted in quite well.

The Rio Bravo, I ran with open sights, and I have to say, the fiber optic sights on these rifles are perfect. I was shooting under a roof, and could see them very easily, I stepped out from under the roof, and it was like someone injected them with tritium. REALLY nice for my old eyes. This rifle's action was very smooth, and surprised the heck out of me. It wasn't as smooth as my Winchester 9422xtr, but I also could buy 3 Rio Bravos for what the Winchester cost me. I am REALLY happy with the smoothness of this rifle.

Both triggers were what I would have expected from rifles at this price range; not great, but certainly 'serviceable'!

Both rifles shot consistently to POA. There were no, FTF or FTE, and only 1 'misfire', which I'm sure was ammo related.

I didn't post a picture of my targets, as another Fella at the range had offered to pull my target when he went down.

All in all, I'm a 'Happy Camper' with my new Rossi's! They accent my Rossi 92's quite well. Now I have these 2 rimfire Rossi's, and my 2 R92' (1 in .45lc, the other in .44mag!!)

Naw, no new hip 'yet'! 'Just' a pinched nerve. I'll tell ya though, it hurt as much as when I broke my other hip back in '16!
I couldn't even walk, was on a cane for weeks!

BUT, as @Mark40 said; "MoMan back in action and having fun"!!

MoMan back in action and having fun, enjoy your pair of Rossi rifles.
