Rossi shotguns use the timeless single shot break open breech design updated with the most modern safety features. These shotguns include a spur hammer, transfer bar safety action and an integral linkage system that prevents the action from opening or closing when the hammer is cocked. The safety functions are perfect for beginners, especially the smaller and lighter youth models that feature a shortened stock and barrel. Each is a reliable, lightweight gun easily carried throughout an entire day in the field. Wide, powerful ejectors eliminate lost time removing spent hulls or unfired shells without compromising safety. Rossi shotguns are available in 12 and 20 gauge models, weighing just over five pounds, and a four pound .410 bore all accepting either 2 3/4 inch or 3 inch shells Standard or Magnum. The .410 and the 20 gauge are offered in even lighter youth models scaled down to fit young shooters.
