I wouldn't hesitate buying one, even given the recent
Taurus 608 problems I've had.
The Tuffy is .410 with thumbhole stock only if
my feeble memory still serves me.
I don't know how you could screw up a single-shot
break over breach style rifle/shotgun/pistol other than
somewhere in the trigger/hammer.
After all these decades, and only recently having
any [new]gun problems, and them with Taurus,
Ruger, and S&W, I guess it's a toss-up of who's
quality to trust with your wallet.
Even one of my Contender barrels doesn't open/close
For the price of these single-shot Rossi's I don't see any problem,
and the ones I have actually held/used seem to be made well.
I have entertained one in .223 and .44 but haven't purchased one
because it would be a duplicate of something I have, but I still want them.
Other things like Berry's plated and W231 and primers always seem to
take priority over the next $200 I have for this area.......
with the exception
of MamaOzo wanting a new Smith or sumpin'.
