With the NRA Annual Meeting coming up we’re starting to see a flurry of new gun releases, and the latest one is from Rossi. I was pretty enamored with the .45 Colt/.410 Tuffy Survivor they released not long back, and now they dropped a whole family of compact, lightweight, single-shot break open rifles called, appropriately enough, the Rossi LWC (Lightweight Carbine).

The LWCs sport synthetic stocks and 16.5-inch threaded barrels, so they come suppressor ready out of the box. I’ve been eyeballing a single shot for suppressor use for a while now so I’m going to give these a hard look. With a single shot you have no gas escaping from the action, and no noise from the action itself when you fire other than the hammer dropping. Overall length is a super compact 31.5 inches, and weight is about 5.24 pounds. The frame is steel with a polymer overlay, and the barrel is all steel with a black oxide finish. The guns have a Picatinny rail for mounting optics, and no iron sights are provided. They also come with sling swivel studs and a cross-bolt safety.

Aside from being a nice, compact, suppressor-ready package, the thing that impressed me was the variety of calibers that they’re going to be available in, including 350 Legend, .300 Blackout, 5.56, 6.5 Creedmoor, .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum and 8.6 Blackout. It looks like the .350 Legend and .300 Blackout ones are available now, with the others on the way.

The Rossi LWC looks like a great camp rifle in general with its wide range of calibers, light weight and compact size. It’s a good-looking package in my mind, and it has a very reasonable MSRP of only $333.99, too.
