Have not been on this site for a long time,


Just purchased a used Taurus Model 62 off of GunBroker. I use to have a Rossi Model 62 and regretted getting rid of that rifle. Love the action on it. I did buy a Henry pump action to replace it but that Henry didn't come close. The Henry was not near a smooth as the Rossi was.
So I decided to find me another model 62. I finally decided on the Taurus because of the shorter barrel and the fact they have the life time warranty.
When I get it I will cut the stock down to a 12.5" LOP (for my shorter statue) and probably remove the shinny finish from the wood, refinish the wood with wax only. I like the feel of the soft warm wood that way.
Anyway really can't wait to get it. Love 22's, especially lever 22's. So this pump will fit right back into the fold.

Well Guy's/Gal's
Got my Taurus Model 62 in on Wednesday afternoon. On inspection the rifle looks very little of use on it. Loading or Shucking the action it is a little stiff but I believe that is because it has not been used much. Loved the looks of the rifle right off and also Loved the size of that small 16.5" barrel and 13" LOP. Feels great to shoulder.
But while inspecting it I noticed that the Magazine inner tube was missing. It was showing on the pictures on GunBroker. I went ahead and signed for the rifle and took it home. I figured the guy sent it by mistake, so I figured they would find it and everything would be ok.
Called the seller and he said that he boxed the rifle up and the magazine tube was there. I told him I was there when it was unboxed and that we looked in the box 3 times and there was no magazine tube to be found. He looked around the gun shop with no luck. Told him if he could see about getting me one and I would also see what I could find.
About 2 hours later he called me and said he found the magazine tube. He had placed the rifle muzzle down in a tube while he was getting the shipping box ready. Said he remembered doing that and checked, sure enough that is where it was.
I asked him to ship it over night if he would, He said he would try. He finally sent me a tracking number and it is suppose to be delivered this Friday 11-8-2019.
Can't wait to get this little rifle to the range.

Dave,
Ill get pictures as soon as I can. The wife is keeping running right now. :(

I did finally get the Magazine tube. But when he shipped it to me the follower was bent so bad I could not use it. When I tried bending it back out should have heated it, because it broke when I tried to bend it back out. I ordered two new ones for it. One of the new ones coming is brass. The other is plastic that might allow me to get 13 rounds in instead of the current 12 in the tube. Either way I ended up drilling the broken bell end and super glued the shaft into the bell part. Pretty solid and work really good. The rifle is shooting great. Needed to adjust the rear sight. It was not centered and could tell when hitting my target. I moved the rear sight to center now will have to try it out again :). I bet it will be right on point of aim now.
