    Rossi ss 243

    I just picked up a single shot Rossi in 243 as it was too cheap to pass up.
    Ex pig bail gun, so didn't have a forestock screw. I have improvised on that for now. The stock has been painted a god awfull brick red, so will change that in due course. The rifle had enough oil in and around the action, I could of relubed my entire car with what I cleaned off.
    Gave the barrel a birthday and stuck a spare Burris fullfield on it. Boresighted at 100 yds.
    First 3 shots with factory Rem 80gn cloverleafed.

    It was intended as a first gun for a lefty mate, but I think I may keep it now.
    The only change I need apart from the colour, is to get a hammer extension fitted.

    Good to hear it shoots well. Amazing it grouped at all considering the condition of the muzzle.

    Sweet. We have a bunch of Rossi Pombas in a selection of calibres. All of them shoot well , with the exception of a .270 that just just wont play the game at all. The .243 is probably our most-used one though.
