Rossi’s Tuffy line of single-barrel shotguns are rugged and affordable firearms, and the company says “the compact and light design also makes it the perfect choice for wilderness protection, survival scenarios and is an easy grab-and-go shotgun for the farm or camp.” New for 2024, Rossi is taking that ability one step forward with the Poly Tuffy Survival Rifle.

The Tuffy Survival rifle is based on Rossi’s Tuffy shotguns and Brawler pistol, with its single-barrel, break-open action that is hammer fired and has both a transfer bar and a manual crossbolt safety. A release lever opens the action, and an ejector removes the spent case. The Survival Rifle’s 16” barrel is cold hammer-forged and chambered to accept both .45 Colt and .410 bore shotgun cartridges of up to 3” in length.

It is fully rifled and has a black oxide finish. In addition to front and rear iron sights, a Picatinny rail is attached to the barrel for the mounting of optics. Furniture is black polymer, with quick detachable sling swivel studs in the buttstock and fore-end and textured gripping areas. A carrier for extra cartridges is built into the thumbhole-style buttstock.

Rossi touts the compact overall dimensions of the Survival Rifle. Its overall length is 30.9”, and it weighs a mere 3 lbs., 3 ozs. The single-shot design breaks down into two pieces for easy storage and transport.

The Rossi Poly Tuffy Survival Rifle has a MSRP of $371. For more information, visit
