If you want a single shot in that price range, get an H&R handi-rifle. Your chances of getting a lemon are much slimmer.
Rossi did not want to fix my rifle, which was definitely messed up from the factory. It went back twice (once to get re-crowned and once to get the chamber re-done) and the problem was never fixed. I insisted they re-barrel the rifle for me to no avail.
