MIAMI, FL –-( For 2010 Rossi introduces the Rio Grande, adding the popular .30-30 Win. caliber to its lineup of popular lever-action rifles. The Rio Grande offers accuracy, performance and practicality for a lifetime of fast, lever-action shooting.

Authentic buckhorn sights and a beautiful hardwood finish make this model look like the classic, but the new Rossi design performs like a state-of-the art rifle. Available in deep blue or polished stainless steel, these hard-charging lever-actions provide 6+1 rounds for shooting fun.

The Rio Grande’s side ejection port allows a riflescope to be mounted in the natural position and the scope mount base and hammer extension are included. These hand-assembled and tuned rifles also feature a cushioned recoil pad, cross-bolt safety, lever actuated safety and the Taurus Security System®.

The Rio Grande barrel measures 20 inches long, with an overall length of 39 inches and weighs 7 pounds. Also available in REALTREE® APG HD camo stock. MSRP $499 – $610.

The Rossi revolution of firearm design and manufacture started with the founding of the company in 1889 by Amadeo Rossi. For the past 120 years, the tradition of innovation grew along with the company and the Rossi family. The Rossi name represents a piece of firearms history and a tradition of excellence.

In 2008, Rossi production was acquired by Forjas Taurus S.A. Rossi is the industry-leading manufacturer of single-shot, matched pairs, muzzleloaders, rifles and shotguns. The acquisition integrates perfectly with the quality of firearms currently produced by Taurus International and will expand the ability to produce quality firearms at reasonable prices as well as dedication to creating new and exciting Rossi products. Today, a Rossi firearm still features the same dedication and innovation in every firearm. Now, as part of Taurus International, Rossi looks forward to providing you with the next generation of great firearms.

The complete line of Rossi firearms features the exclusive Taurus Security System, which utilizes a key to lock the firearm and offers additional safety for youth. All Rossi firearms also incorporate a transfer bar mechanism and a manual safety on a single shot, break-open design in which the breech cannot be closed or opened if the hammer is cocked.

Rossi is proud to offer a free One-year NRA Junior Membership with the purchase of any Rossi youth model. It is recommended that children always be accompanied by an adult when shooting. For more information about Rossi Firearms, a Division of BrazTech International, visit
