Get hyped for NRA's Annual Meetings & Exhibits! Spring is when many firearms manufacturers announce or launch new products, because they know that NRA Families will have a chance to see those guns in person at the show. It's like Christmas in May for those of us who enjoy the shooting sports, and today we're unwrapping the Rossi Lightweight Carbine (LWC). This single-shot rifle isn't your average carbine; it's your ticket to endless fun and versatility.

Crafted with precision engineering and expert craftsmanship, this lightweight wonder ensures superior handling and maneuverability without skimping on power or accuracy. Plus, with its threaded barrel design across the entire family, the Rossi LWC is the perfect suppressor host, ready to take your shooting experience to the next level. With a wide selection of calibers to choose from, including .350 Legend, .300 Blackout, 5.56, 6.5 Creedmoor, .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum and 8.6 Blackout, there's a Rossi LWC for any and every adventure!

The most obvious application is hunting, as the new LWC family includes big-game calibers galore, but the Rossi LWC also makes for fun and safe target practice--especially if you mount a suppressor for extra recoil and sound reduction. Thanks to its size and maneuverability, it's also a great "truck gun." We can't wait to learn more about this nimble little carbine, and of course, we'll keep you posted!
