Single Shot Rifles

Recommended Posts

Crickschop04

I'm left handed and poor so I've decided that a single shot would be the best way to go for a varmit rifle. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the Rossi single shots??? Any other input???

I have a Rossi .243 Heavy Barrel and it's not to bad. I have no problems holding a 3 inch group at 200yds.

Not sure if NEF make the rossi's too, but I was eyeing the NEF handi rifle a couple of years ago, but decided I would go with an AR instead. Big price swing by the way.....

NEF and Rossi are not made by the same company. I believe Rossi guns are made in Brazil.

I am a HUGE fan of the NEF single shot rifles. I own them in a lot of different calibers and have used them for everything from antelope to turkeys to prairie dogs. Last fall I used my .223 to take a prairie dog at 550 yards. My .243 will shoot groups under 1 inch at 200 yards. The rifles are rock solid and the price is great. Where else can you get an awesome, brand new varmint gun for $2oo?

I don't have any experience shooting the Rossi rifles, but I have NO problem recommending the NEF guns.

If you are left handed and considering a single shot why not just go with a right handed bolt gun? They make dandy single shots with a handy place to keep spare ammo.

A slightly used savage or stevens .223 would make budget sense. 243 if thinking you want to use it on deer too ...

Good stuff guys I appreciate it. Anymore first hand knowledge on the Rossi would be great.

I don't know you are still looking to buy, but I was in the same boat as you are a couple of years ago(LH & poor) and bought a Rossi matched pair .243 win and 12 ga. combo. Biggest piece of garbage made. Do not buy one. I ended up buying a Savage/Stevens for $259(Sportsmans Warehouse) and couldn't be happier with the accuracy. I have a left-handed savage in 30-06 and to my suprise I like shooting the right handed bolt better. I have a couple buddies that have NEF's and they seem to be decent guns, but I would advise buying a Savage/Stevens

How about a left handed Savage bolt. They are ugly, but cheap and accurate.

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?

      To help protect Minnesota waters, the Department of Natural Resources is reminding people to properly dispose of prohibited or unwanted aquarium plants and animals. “It’s important for hobbyists, teachers, parents and children to know that they should never release aquarium animals or plants into the wild,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Some of the pets and plants that live in aquariums are prohibited species that can cause serious harm if released into lakes, rivers or ponds.” The DNR recommends teachers check the prohibited invasive species list before choosing classroom aquarium animals. “We also encourage teachers to discuss invasive species with their students,” Wolf said. People with aquarium animals or plants that are prohibited or that they no longer want can dispose of them at two upcoming surrender events sponsored by Minnesota Sea Grant: Habitattitude Surrender and University of Minnesota Duluth PAWS Event Wednesday, April 25, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Kirby Student Lounge, University of Minnesota Duluth, 1120 Kirby Drive, Duluth. Fish, aquatic plants, invertebrates, amphibians and reptiles accepted. www.seagrant.umn.edu/news/2018/04/25 Minnesota Aquarium Society Spring Auction and Surrender Saturday, April 28, 11 a.m. Lutheran Church of the Redemption (gymnasium) 927 East Old Shakopee Road, Bloomington. Fish, aquatic plants and invertebrates accepted. www.aquarium.mn/announcements/events/auction/spring-auction-2018 Some retailers sell plants and animals that are prohibited in Minnesota. One example frequently found in classrooms, the red swamp crayfish, is causing major environmental and economic harm as nearby as Wisconsin. More information about prohibited and regulated species and what to do with them is available at mndnr.gov/invasives/laws. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
