New from Rossi: Blacked-Out Lever in .357, .44 Mag and .22 Pump and Lever – SHOT Show 2020

Tactical-cool lever guns have taken the firearms industry by storm, and Rossi USA introduced their own take on the blacked-out cowboy rifle at SHOT Show 2020.

The R92 Triple Black will be available chambered in .357 and .44 Magnum and comes with all the features customers have come to expect from these modern lever guns.

The eight-round capacity and available chamberings provide enough firepower to handle whatever hunting or self-defense situation may arise, and the 16.5” barrel makes the gun maneuverable in dense brush and tight corners. The barrel is also threaded to accommodate a wide variety of muzzle devices, including suppressors and muzzle brakes.

The gun’s weight adds to its maneuverability. At just over six pounds, the Rossi Triple Black is lighter than the Marlin Dark Series by over 1.5 pounds. Only a full review can determine whether Rossi cut weight by cutting quality materials, but lighter is always better on a long-distance hunting trip.

Users can either utilize the peep sight system or throw a scope on the included picatinny rail. We found the peep sight to be easy to use along with the simple black blade-style front sight, though most users will no doubt opt for some kind of optic.

The R92 Triple Black starts at an MSRP of $858.

For users who want something a little more traditional, Rossi also unveiled two rimfire options: the Rio Bravo lever action and the Gallery pump action.

Rossi reps told us that the company has made lever action rimfire guns in the past, but this reintroduced model has improved the action mechanism to increase reliability.

The Rio Bravo features a 15-round capacity and an 18” barrel. It’s equipped with an adjustable buckhorn rear sight and a brass bead front sight, and the dovetail rail on the receiver can accommodate scope rings.

We found the action to be smooth, but the trigger features quite a bit of takeup before finally dropping the hammer.

The Gallery comes with an MSRP of $347.
