Bainbridge, GA – September 2021 – Rossi, manufacturer of specialty rimfire rifles, break-action shotguns, and straight-wall cartridge lever-action and revolver rifles, is pleased to announce a new model in its popular Rio Bravo lever-action .22 LR lineup.

The Rio Bravo Gold is based on the company’s line of R92 lever-action firearms. What separates this model from its stablemates is the receiver finish. The new Rio Bravo Gold features a rich PVD gold finish on the receiver and lever, providing an elegant accent to the rifle’s accompanying polished black oxide finish and graceful hardwood stock and fore grip. This gold PVD finish offers exceptional protection from corrosion and wear compared to conventional gold plating, making the rifle suitable not only for display but also capable of withstanding the rigors of field work, be it target shooting, general plinking, or small-game hunting.

As with all Rossi Rio Bravo rimfires, the Rio Bravo Gold lever-action rifle is chambered for .22 LR and boasts a 15-round capacity. A crossbolt safety system, traditional buckhorn-style rear and post front sights, and factory-installed sling swivel studs deliver function and form.
