The Rossi Coach
« on: December 28, 2017, 06:57:00 pm »
Just a fun video featuring what I consider to be the finest CAS double ever made:  the chrome bore, coil spring, mule ear, no annoying safety Rossi Overland Coach.  If you have one,  treasure it, for you will never see it's like again.

I'm fortunate to have 4 Rossi Coach Guns. 2 20 Ga. and 2 12Ga. I'm still looking for one more of each 'cause I have 3 Great Grandsons and they ALL want them.
Ya' know, when I go to KFC I have to get 6 drumsticks! You das't not fail to give'm all the same!!! In my younger days you might be lucky to fight for a foot! Nick

I had one Oncest.  Let it get away.  That was dumb.  At the time I thought '97s were cool.  NOT.  Wish I still had the Rossi.  20 Ga.  Also, at the time I hadn't discovered Fiocchi 20Ga Trainer factory ammo (I don't reload plastic Shotgun) so the factory 20Ga beat me stupid.

Garcia Arms (Rossi) early 70s double barrel

I tried a search a couple of times and didn't turn up anything on a Garcia Arms (Rossi) made double barrel hammer gun. I bought it new back in early 70s for $78 brand new.

It has 28 inch barrels. I could have gotten 20inch coach gun back then, but purchased what was on hand. It has to be the most accurate shotgun that I have ever shot. All of the screws in this gun pointed the same direction. The South American wood has a dark plastic coating. I can say it's durable.

A gunsmith friend of mine introduced to me clay pigeons shooting one day against his semi-pro over and under 12 gauge whatever. Me being new at this I surprised him with all of my hits. He commenced to try my Amaded Rossi hammer 12 gauge.....he was amazed at the accuracy of it. He couldn't believe a $78 dollar made in Brazil had the barrels put in perfect alignment of each other. An amazing gun to me.

Just wondered if anyone else had a Rossi double with hammers. Oh, the break open lever and the hammers are color case hardened.

Thanks for listening......44 centerfire

 I wouldn't sell this gun for any amount of money....Oh, maybe I would lol! Haven't shot it in 30 years. Back then I used an old iron Herters loader for 12 gauge using red AAs, green Rem., and maroon Federals. Lot's of memory with the Rossi......
