    My first post as a new be gentle !! I have just acquired a little Rossi model 62 SA pump action 22. It has a serial # of G203761.
    I have several questions, which, I hope someone may help me with. First, I went to the "find my model" site on Rossi USA and they indicate the serial number shows no record........does anyone have any idea when it was manufactured? Next the reciever, barrel, magazine tube all look like either polished stainless or nickel plate, how can I determine which? Most, actually all, the stainless rifles I presently own are still "magnet" sensitive.
    It appears to not have been shot a lot, something I plan to change pretty quickly, it is in pretty good cosmetic condition and while not the best in fit, finish and manufacturing tolerances I think it is going to be a fun plinker.I followed the link offered by a forum member in a post, and downloaded an owners manual ,so, thanx for that!
    Thanx in advance for any additional help offered.

    Well, it's older than mine. Mine is G273xxx. I checked all my Rossi guns on that site (6 rifles, 2 shotguns) and every one came back the same way. No record of that number. But all of my guns were imported by Interamrs, back around 2000. Rossi was a different company, then. There's a number on the site, to call, if the automated system doesn't help you.

    A little info on them. They came in "rifle" (23") and "carbine" (16 1/2") barrel lengths. Blue or nickel. Round or octagon barrels. They only brought the stainless rifle in, in 1986, and the stainless carbine only in 1998. Carbines were only imported from '88 to '98. They discontinued importing the gun (all versions) in '98. Don't know when they started importation. Some years back, after Taurus bought Rossi, Taurus brought the gun back, but I believe it has, once again, stopped being imported.

    Thank you for that ALPO, Mine too, was Imported by Interarms, as it is stamped on the barrel, and is a "rifle", as learned from your information provided. (23"bbl). Upon close scrutiny I now believe it is, in fact ,nickle plate.
    Is there any idea as to it's value or simply "whatever you can get or have to give" for it?
    Also,the stock appears to have a dark stain and clear coat or dark varnish finish. But looking closely there appears to be a very attractive grain beneath the finish and wonder if might not be worth stripping and refinishing in a more natural state. The finish does look to be original, and is not in bad shape, I just wonder if it might not be more attractive not so dark
  4. i did have the smaller carbine pump at one time,shot the whole range of short,longs,and long rifle.i kept it only a few years letting my young neices and nephews shoot it.somehow i let one of them talk me out of it,dammit. they are neat little guns and a good value for the money old semperfi

    No idea, really, of the value. I paid hundred and a quarter (I think), five or six years ago, and know I got a smokin' deal.

    Something you may not be aware of, so I'll throw it out there.

    First, there is no pump-unlocking device. The only way to move the pump is with the hammer down.

    Second, there is no disconnect. If the trigger is back when the bolt locks in place, the hammer falls.

    So, third, DO NOT try to unload the gun by holding the trigger back as you slowly work the pump, expecting the hammer to follow the bolt forward, so that you can just continually work the pump to dump the shells. It won't work. The gun will go bang.

    People have tried to do it that way. Always surprises them when they shoot the dog, or the TV, or their wife.

    I special ordered my Rossi 62 Octagon at Wally World in Texarkana back in early 99. I'm wanting to say it cost me about $200 new. It's been a tack driver and will be passed on to my kids when I'm gone.

    Rossi 62? pump rifle...I acquired a break down Rossi rifle ser#G112647. I have looked this thing over and find no model number.This gun was still in plastic wrap and I do not think it has been fired. Anyone have and idea where to find the mod# and how much this gun is worth? I think I will give it to my grandson if it is any good. THANKS!!

    I've never seen the model number stamped on one of these. The model # was printed on the box end label. I've had mine since 1979/80 - at least 10K rounds through it - works like a champ and is surprisingly accurate for a short barrel carbine. The longer barrel rifles are supposed to be at least as accurate.

    The guy to contact about those rifles is M&M Gunsmithing ( This is who Rossi refers you to about 'em.
