Whether for training, pest control or a fun day at the range, there's no question regarding the versatility of a solid .22 LR rifle. For fans of classic lever-action rifles or of Rossi's affordable line of R92 lever guns, the Rio Bravo provides a familiar, classically styled lever-action rifle chambered in .22 LR.
Based on Rossi's R92 rifle design, the Rio Bravo features an ejection port on the right side of the gun and includes a standard lever loop along with a generous hammer spur at the rear of the receiver. The gun is built with a round barrel paired with a tube magazine that holds up to 15 rounds of .22 LR.
The Rio Bravo is outfitted with a traditional buckhorn rear sight that's adjustable for windage and elevation, enabling shooters to dial in the zero that's perfect for their shooting scenario. The front sight features a bright fiber-optic cable that allows for easy, precise targeting.
For those seeking a more traditional look in their lever-action rifle, the Rossi Rio Bravo comes outfitted with an attractive buttstock and fore-end crafted from German beechwood. Those looking for a more rugged, weatherproof rifle for use outdoors can opt for furniture molded from black polymer. On both rifle models, the metal components are treated with a polished black finish.
Regardless of furniture choice, each Rio Bravo lever-action rifle is outfitted with a sling stud fitted on the barrel band located just forward of the front sight, as well as a sling stud on the underside of the stock for easy sling attachment. The rifle also comes with a traditional cross-bolt safety.
Each Rossi Rio Bravo lever-action rifle is outfitted with an 18" barrel, and the gun measures 36" long. Unloaded, the gun weighs 5.5 lbs, and the suggested MSRP is $346.97. For more information, visit rossiusa.com.
