    Looking to get my son his first rifle for hunting. Have had several offers to buy Rossi Trifecta .22lr, .243 20 ga. combos.

    It isn't the single shot aspect that I am curious about...just the quality and reliability of the firearm.

    We are new to shooting and on a tight budget...any input will help greatly.

    Thanks in advance.

    I did'nt have a problem with mine up until 2-3 months ago it started to misfire (fail to fire) about 1 out of 6 rounds and getting worse I've had it for about 2 years and fired about 2-3k 12 gauge rounds threw it but has alway been cleaned well. I was actually asked 4 months ago by a buddy what kind of single shot to buy and he bought a rossi as well, since then he has started to get misfires as well. I would never recomend buying a rossi or gun manufactured by taurus again.

    I bought myself the rossi youth model, but it came with the .243, .22, , .410, and 20 gauge barrels.

    .410 works awesome and is a grouse slayer. The 20 gauge is about as good as any shorter barrel 20g. The .22 was fairly good, but had a hard time getting the sights to stay tightened down. Now the .243 was shooting 3 inch groups at 75 yards with open sights, off hand. I adjusted them as far as they would go but it was still shooting about 6 inches low. I'll may pick him up a scope for it this year and see if that helps. Probably better off going with something else as far as a deer rifle goes

    Take a look at the NEF/HR combos. A bit more but are noted for reliability and decent accuracy. Recoil pad probably needed.
