I have been on the look out for a 454 for decades...
Last summer I was offered a Rossi for a local dealer. The offer was TOO good to turn down. The gun is a longer version and blued RIFLE in 45 COLT not the shorter Carbine Stainless 454 I was hoping for.
It was brand new, but over ten years old. (Hence the deal) This guy is 98% a shotgun store. Meaning you will find Parker’s LC Smiths, Greeners, Winchester’s Brownings countless others and not a single “blk gun”. Even his hand gun supply is thin and of that it’s 90% revolvers and 10% 1911’s. Hahaha
Good reloading supply and the man has forgotten more about shotguns than many combined. Plus a real nice guy and a friend of mine.
Any how... This gun was pretty smooth as I have read of the roughness some see.
A good video on utube went ove rthe tricky spots and in about one hour no cussing and no lost parts my action was as nice as any new Marlin or Winchester. But not as smooth as a loved and caressed sunny ‘92. 😉
Sites suk! But I found a good replacement set in my pets boxes. Sun shoot my cast and powder coated Lyman 454424 and Unique very well! That long 24” Bbl also almost hits 1100 FPS!!
I really like it! Nice bluing dark dark stain on the stocks.
The sites made a huge difference in my ability to shoot this well. The dove tips are *******. I modified the sites to fit. Bedded them in loc tite too.
