Could you give me your experiences with the Rossi Trifecta? I am thinking of getting one, and I love the idea of interchangeable barrels, especially the .22 and the .243 . I would use it to shoot varmint(the .22), and the .243 for small wild boar.
Thank you in advance for your advice.
and invariably someone will post negatively about it. Yet Rossi keeps cranking them out so sales must be good.
I can only state I have a Rossi 20 gauge rifled slug gun that is very accurate and has been 100% reliable. I know this is not your question but I have only this one Rossi and would not trade it.
I was not knocking anyones gun.If you have a singleshot rifled barrel .20ga,how often do you shoot it?I was only referring to personal experience plus high volumn shooting.In my experience the ones I have owned and been around did not stand up to high volumn shooting.(100to200rnd,s a week or better.)I have found this true with other brands from S.A. too.This doesnt mean someone should not purchase on my get-go.It's hard to turn down a little savings on a firearm and NEF/H&R have their problem when it comes to high volumn shooting,but my experience has taught me the higher price on them is the real bargain in this class of gun if I plan on shooting a lot. sam.
My opinion isn't good.They are like other S.A. guns.Metallurgy is not the best.I would go NEF/H&R. sam.
I agree with sam on this one. I personally have no experience with the rossi single shots, but I do know people that have had them, and had problems with them. One of which the action unlocks itself every time it is fired. Not very good when your 8 year old son is shooting it.
One hole groups are as easy as pulling the trigger, until you pull it the second time.
We were having some problems with the 243 barrel as far as accuracy. groups of 4-6 inches at 100 yds.(and a couple of full size 223's with the same problem) I have 3 of the trifectas sold at Christmas that are being shipped back for Rossi to check out.
The .223 would be cheapest on ammo,the .204 the most accurate,and the .243 best for all around hunting and bullet selection. I don't own either of the shotguns,hope someone can give a better report,but having seen both and shot sauer,s I say either is a great shotgun but can get pricey.The sauer Franchi is great too for the price,in fact I would rather have it in the field. sam.
I was not referring to you in my post. Please do not interpret my post in that manner. I was just noting when it comes to this particular Rossi
offering "someone" (in the generic sense of another poster not any particular person) seems to come forth with a negative comment.
I actually do find it interesting that Rossi keeps cranking out this offering
in view of those on this forum who report problems. It would be interesting to know Rossi's production/sales figures versus the number of these three barrel guns returned for warranty work.
Mattel keeps cranking out matchbox cars and they are great to look at.But I have found,after buying hundreds for a grandson,they don't hold up to actual driving very well.But others and myself keep right on buying them,because they are cheap. sam.
Thank you all for your very quick reply,
So you're saying I should go for NEF.. Which one would fit me best though? The .223 Rem/.243/.204 Ruger?
I was looking at some o/u Shotguns, like the Sauer 24, and the Remington SPR94. Are these any good?
I've sold a bunch of the Remington SPR94's and have only found one issue that people are not reading the owners manual. Remington says to run a certain quanity of 2 3/4 high brass or larger (3" or 3 1/2" shells) thru it to do an initial beak in before adjusting the system down for 2 3/4 low brass. if the break in is not done cycling problems have resulted. if proper break in is done, I have heard of no problems afterward.

by the way, that was over a 10% failure rate on those shipped to us in a few month time period.
