First Look: Rossi Rio Bravo

posted on June 11, 2020
Rossi, manufacturer of specialty rimfire rifles, has announced and is now shipping a new lever-action rimfire. Termed the Rio Bravo, the gun is based on the company's popular line of R92 lever guns. Boasting a polished black-metal finish, with either rich German beechwood, or a rugged black polymer forearm and stock, the Rio Bravo brings the traditional rifle experience to the rimfire category.

Built with a smooth-sliding lever and a cross-bolt safety system, up to 15 rounds of .22 Long Rifle can be loaded into the tube. The wood model uses traditional buckhorn sights, while the synthetic wears updated fiber optics, the rear of which can be adjusted for added precision. For portability, the rifle includes a barrel band sling stud mounted ahead of the front sight, and a rear sling stud in the stock.
