Rossi Combo, barrel only?
#1
We have a Rossi .22/20ga youth rifle. My son wants to start hunting this next season after his hunter safety course, and to save money, we were really wanting to get a .243 barrel to put on the rifle we already have. Rossi makes a .22/.243 combo, but since we already have a combo rifle, we'd really like to just get the barrel....but can't find anything like that online.

Does that mean its not possible to just buy the barrel? Any ideas? We were probably going to call Tanner's and see if they know anything, but figured maybe someone here may know as well. I guess we could just call Rossi.....

If it is a matched pair you might have to send it in like an H&R Handirifle.
If it is a Wizard you should be able to get a barrel.

Hmm pretty sure it's a matched pair. What do you mean by sending it in like an H&R Handirifle?

They have to machine the barrel to fit. They are not completely modular like say a TC. Ie not a drop in fit.

The Rossi Wizard series is drop in barrels in multiple calibers.

I would call Braztech first.

Ohhh gotcha. Shoulda got the Wizard. Oh well, we'll just get the full .243, then, and the younger boys can learn on the .22. Thanks!

I would still call. Get a quote. See if they will do it. Received might have to get shipped back to Brazil. Idk if they can do it at Braztech in FL.

A little digging online tells me they won't add another barrel. Although that information was from 2008+9. Things may have changed. I would call on Monday.

If you are looking at another single shot though I would buy an H&R. Few bucks more but there is more options. Not that the Rossi's are bad guns. My Pops has a 12g/.22WMR Matched Pair that shoots great.
