The Rossi matched set.

I have one of the earlier Youth Matched Sets with .22 LR barrel and .410 shotgun barrel that I purchased for my son. The shotgun also can shoot slugs, so would be better than a sharp stick if something big and hairy had you up a tree.

They have since added another barrel, in .45 muzzle loader.



These break down in half and come in a small case that holds the receiver and the extra barrels in sleeves. It would be easily packable, or could be attached to a pack.



If you could pick one rifle/shotgun, this would be a great choice, similar to a Thompson Contender concept. It's light, and breaks open just like a shotgun to load a single shot. Reloads are fast, with auto ejection when you break it open. It takes about a minute to switch out barrels by unscrewing the front swivel and screwing in the other barrel. That is all there is to it.

Best of all, mine came in stainless, and are amazingly inexpensive, but of a very high quality.

Now they are making a three barrel matched set in some more serious calibers.

---------------------


Three Guns In One - The Trifecta
The Trifecta three-barrel youth gun is an extremely versatile shooting system that combines the three best selling calibers in the Rossi line. The set includes either a .243 Win. or 44 Mag. barrel with fiber optic sights, .22 Long Rifle barrel with adjustable fiber optic sights and 20-gauge shotgun barrel with brass bead front sight.

The set also includes a black synthetic stock with removable cheek piece that allows the gun to be adjusted for proper fit with the various barrels. Remove the cheek piece when using the shotgun barrel and its traditional front bead. With the cheek piece in place, the stock is just right for using the rimfire barrel’s fiber optic sights. When using the centerfire barrel either with the included open sights, or with a riflescope, the cheek piece maintains the correct comb height for proper shooting form—a scope mount base that accepts any standard Weaver-style rings is included.

Trifecta specifications:

Item number: S2022243YBS (Matched Set 20-gauge/.22 LR/.243 Win. Youth Size)
Item number: S202244YBS (Matched Set 20-gauge/.22 LR/.44 Mag. Youth Size)
Barrel length: 22”/18½”/22”
Finish: Matte Blue
Weight (with each barrel): 6.3 LBS
Overall length: 35”/31½”/35”
Stock: Black Synthetic
MSRP $299.00 to $329.00
--------------------------

They also have a full sized set with a 12 gauge barrel, a .243 barrel, and a .50 muzzle loader barrel. I think the best survival set is the .44 mag, .22LR, and 20 gauge. It says "youth size", but it is easily used by an adult, and the larger 12 gauge set loses some of the portability. With the .44 barrel to back up a .44 mag revolver, you gain muzzle velocity and accuracy, and could take any game animal in North America.

You should shoot one before passing judgement. Taurus owns Rossi, and they make quality firearms. They are plenty accurate for their intended use, and the versitility is second only to a Contender.

I don't have an ordinary kid, I guess. My kid's first rifle was a Chipmunk, at age 5. By age 7 he was shooting a 10-22, and by 9 he was shooting my AR-15 quite well.

His first pistol was at age 8, and was a S&W Model 34-1 made in 1976. By age 10 he was shooting my model 66 with magnum loads. He shoots double action, because that is the way I taught him.







He had also logged over 200 miles on the Appalachian Trail by age 10.





He's now 12, and just started shooting my Uzi sub-gun. :D:

No, a .22 with an interchangeble .410 spare barrel. That's why it is called a Matched Set.

Now you can get a .22 and a 20 gauge, with a .44 magnum or .243 barrel, all in one package, for around $300.

You can also get a 12 gauge, a .243, and a .50 muzzle loader, all in one.

Five 12 gauges is nice, but you can only carry one, so you may need to get a 6th, with a nice .243 and .50 to go along with it. :thumb:

Hey, there is nothing wrong with a Rossi. Let me ask you this...

If I dropped you 200 miles in the middle of nowhere like Les Stroud, would you rather hump out with an 11.5 lb M-14, plus an 8 lb Remington 870, and a 6 lb Ruger 10-22 (plus ammo...), or this .308 with spare 12 gauge barrel @ just over 6 lbs? Add another 2-3 lbs for a .22 barrel...



If I had a porter, I'd take my FAL, my 11-87, and my 10-22. If it were my own ass humpin through the boonies eating various critters, I'd take that Rossi. :D:

My kid has already tried shooting my FAL, and he needs a little more meat on his bones before he steps up to that. He did shoot my friend's Serbu .50 BMG with me bracing him, but once was enough.



Btw, I love Wyoming, and used to work summers at Yellowstone at Mammoth Hot Springs near Gardner.

It must be cold there now, eh?

I know you can get the .223 on the smaller youth size, but I'm not sure about the .308 on the smaller frame.

Pick up some slugs for that .410, and you can throw a surpisingly large hunk of lead out of that small shotgun barrel.

Check this:

http://www.remington.com/AMMO/PAGES/Ammofr.htm

.410 Ga
2 1/2"
1/5 Oz load
1830 MV
651 ft lbs of energy

This is very close to the .41 Mag in both slug size, velocity, and energy.

I picked up the Rossi Tri-Fecta in OD green the day after thanksgiving at Dicks. I thought it was on sale, turns out it wasn't. Picked it up for about 300. I got the youth model, nice rifle system to keep in the truck.

oh yeah, it's .22LR, 20Ga.& .243

I have not shot it yet, but look forward to it.

Tbull:cool:

If I wanted to would it be possible to get a .308, 22lr, and 12g shotgun combo? Or do only some barrels fit with some actions.

You can geta matched pair in .308 and 12 gauge, or you can get a matched pair in .22 and 12 gauge, so you could probably buy the .22 barrel seperately.


The Rossi Matched Pair is already a classic firearm. Our rimfire models are available in .22LR,. 22 Magnum and.17 HMR and come with either a 12 or 20 gauge shotgun barrel to make it the perfect field gun. The rifle barrels are drilled and tapped to accept Weaver-style scope mount bases and feature adjustable sights. Rossi adds in transfer bar technology to help prevent accidental discharges. Changing from rifle to shotgun or back is as easy as 1-2-3.

SPECIFICATIONS
Model: S121280RS
Caliber/Gauge: .22 LR Length of Pull: 14.25" Wood Finish: WALNUT FINISH
Capacity: SINGLE SHOT Barrel Length: 23" Stock Config: FULL SIZE STANDARD
