Not since Winchester / US Repeating Arms closed its doors in early 2006 has there been anything like this on the market. Photos show one of the first specimens we got of Rossi Braztech’s new M830, named model Rio Grande Lever Action Shotgun. Although the history goes all the way back to the Winchester Model of 1883, this Rossi is more heavily indebted to John Marlin than to Oliver Winchester. The Weaver type scope base sitting atop this Rio Grande’s receiver emphasizes that fact as much as anything. That base is removable, of course, and it, the cross-receiver hammer safety, and the 1 inch recoil pad are the only 20th century trappings to this rifle. Styling is traditional repeating or lever action rifle type, only chambered for .410 gauge, 2 1/2 inch, shotshells. Barrel is 20 inches, and gently rifled for accurate use of slugs, but not enough pronounced rifling to interfere with Shotshells or even buckshot. Company does not advise whether .45 Colt Ammunition is at all feasible; probably not. Capacity is 5 + 1 rounds of .410 gauge, 2 1/2 inch shells; this shotgun is not 3 inch capable. Sights are traditional buckhorn type with step elevator dovetailed-in rear and dovetailed blade front with brass tip. Weight empty is 5.8 pounds, balanced just forward of the lever mount strut on the receiver. Overall length is 38.9 inches, and length of pull is a very adult 13 7/8 inches from the face of the blue steel trigger to the end of the buttpad. Buttstock and forend are traditional walnut-finished Brazilian hardwood. One sees Winchester 9410 shotguns advertised at prices approaching $1500 per unit. We’re offering the Rossio M830 Rio Grande in the photos, however, or one of its identical mates, for only $ 489.00. 2% Discount if payment is by USPS Money Order & Not Credit Card.
