Does anyone have personal experience with this inexpensive Rossi combination package (2-barrel) interchangable .22.rimfire/.410 or 20ga. shotgun barrels? They also make single shotguns and 2"revolvers in .38/.357Mag.

Hey Savage I have a 243/50 cal combo for my Daughter. It is a nice gun and works very well. Both barrels shoot fine and we are both happy with it. I know not the info you were looking for, but, when II posted about the rossi No one had ever used them. Hope it helps,

bubba,
Thanks, I didn't know Rossi had made a .243 before. Today (year+ 2000), they're only making the 22/20 & .410ga combos. How are the sights on the rifle and shotgun? I was thinking of using the 20ga. for slugs.

rossi 22/20

i have handled and fired this firearm and am not impressed at all. You would be way ahead with the NEF. Overall fit, finish and quality in the rossi are very poor. I am disappointed with rossi as they have put hteir name on some pretty decent stuff in the past but, the 22 410/20 combo is not one of them.

Hi all,
I am new to the forum and actually showed up because I was looking for info on the Rossi matched pair. Not a lot out there so I'll toss in my $.02. I got my daughter the .22/20ga in the youth size. I took it out to shoot it and was surprised by the accuracy of the .22. I liked it so much that when I came across a .223/12 ga full size, I picked it up. Originally I wanted to put the .22 on the full size frame. When I brought the new rifle home from the gun show, that is the first thing I tried. No joy, it didn't fit. I put it out of my mind and just shot the .223. I wasn't using a scope (it is drilled and tapped), but the accuracy was fine for my 100 yd plinking. Just this weekend I had all the barrels out for some reason and I noticed that the 20 and 12 looked about the same in the lug area. I tried flip flopping the barrels and it worked fine. Everything dropped onto either reciever except the .22 on the full size frame. A little judicious filing and stoning fixed that. The forend on the 2 size rifles is drilled differently so if you use the youth barrel you have to use the youth forend. No problem with that though. I took the front sling swivel off since it never lined up right. I replaced it with a 6mm bolt that has about a 1/4 inch high hex head. I trimmed the length to fit and cut a screwdriver (coin) slot in the head of the bolt. I do have some complaints. The trigger guard and sights are plastic. I can deal with the plastic guard I s'pose, but I really don't like the plastic sights. As I mentioned, they are accurate enough, but I question their durability on a knock around rifle. If anyone knows of acceptable replacements let me know. Hope this helps out a little.
