I have several Rossi questions:

I notice that the Rossi takes the same scope base as the TC Contender, thus, it would make sense that it would take the same receiver sights that fit the TC. Has anybody put on either of the Williams receiver sights on their rifles? Also, in regard to sights, does anybody know where I might get the new fiber optic sights that they have on their newest rifles? Will they fit the older models without modification?

How about the new synthetic stock/forearm combinations? Are those available to the aftermarket?

Thank you,

Steve

Well,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it really doesn't take the same scope base. The hole pattern for the screws are the same, but the raidus of the base where it sits on the barrel is way different, so it really doesn't fit the rossi properly. You may get by with it, but it isn't even close to being right. Larry

What I really want to do is see if there is a receiver sight and aftermarket front sight that fits the Rossis with no gunsmithing.

Thanks,

Steve

I think it depends on the rifle what chambering it is, my stainless steel Rossi 357 magnum came with a crappy plastic rear sight which didn't even have elevation adjustment. I read the same thing about the T/C scope base fitting, so I took a chance and bought a T/C rear sight on ebay for $5.00 and that sight fit PERFECTLY EXACT match. I shot it like this for a few years but recently upgraded to a Williams WGRS peep sight, and this also fit PERFECTLY, so I can say without a doubt the T/C sights and bases will fit the 357 mag chambered barrels.

If the breech end of your barrel measures 3/4" the T/C sights will fit just fine.

I also got rid of the gawdawlful front sight having a buddy cut a dovetail to which was added a front blade from my Winchester 94AE
