Lever-action news: Rossi introduces the R95 rifle in .30-30

From Rossi USA, part of Taurus group, a lever action rifle in the beloved and classic .30-30 Winchester caliber: meet the new Rossi R95. The latest addition to Rossi's lever action rifle catalog features a hammer forged barrel, a smooth hand finished action, large loading gate, and is drilled and tapped for optics. For even more versatility, the R95 is offered on two barrel length options: the 20”/508 mm Classic and the handier 16.5”/419 mm Trapper,  the latter version also featuring an enlarged lever loop.

Rossi R95, classic and modern at the same time

The Rossi R95 sports a wood stock with  hardwood walnut finish.

“There’s nothing better than a slick lever action. The feeling of levering a round in the chamber, hearing the mechanical parts working together in concert, the satisfying feeling of the bolt closing – it’s kinetic, it’s aesthetic, and it’s everything you want. Rossi has been feeding those feelings with its pistol caliber rifles for years, and now it’s giving a 30-30, perfect for North American game,” they say at Rossi.

Two versions are available for the Rossi R95 in .30-30: the Classic with 20” barrel (seen here)...

In the Rossi R95 the alloy steel receiver and barrel have a modern polished black oxide finish, a corrosion-resistant coating that not only enhances the rifle’s aesthetics but also provides added protection against the elements. Another classic touch, the wood stock sports a hardwood walnut finish. Also very traditional, the side loading gate.

The Rossi R95 offers an enhanced capacity of 5 +1 rounds which, added to the wide range of shooting applications  of the .30-30 calibers, ensures shooting pleasure and improved efficiency.

...Or the Rossi R95 with 16.5 barrel and enlarged "trapper" lever loop. The rifle is drilled and tapped for optics.

Sights include a drift adjustable front sight and an adjustable buckhorn rear notch. The manual thumb safety is located on the top rear receiver, in front of the trigger for ease of manipulation.

The Rossi R95 is customization-ready: aftermarket accessories including M-Lok handguards and extended sights systems are already available at launch, allowing shooters to personalize their rifle according to need and preferences.

Price of the new  Rossi R95 is a whisker shy of $950, at $949.99 regardless of barrel length.
