Rossi Now Offering the R95 Lever Gun in Three .45-70 Models


Last August, Rossi launched their R95 lever-action rifle in .30-30. The folks at Rossi tell us the first question they got when the news broke was, “When will you make one in .45-70? Well, that day has come.

They’re offering it in three barrel lengths, 16.5, 20, and 22 inches. As Rossi says . . .

Few experiences match the satisfaction of operating a smooth lever action. The act of chambering a round, the synchronized movements of mechanical components, and the gratifying sensation as the bolt closes – it’s a blend of kinetics and aesthetics that embodies everything one desires. Rossi has been catering to these sentiments with its lineup of pistol caliber rifles over the years, and now, it introduces a 45-70 Government chambering, perfect for…whatever you’d use a 45-70 for.

Hard to argue with that.
