Rossi Circuit Judge 45 Colt 410 Gauge Rifle
The Rossi Circuit Judge 45 Colt 410 Gauge Rifle has the ability to fire both 410 Gauge Rifle shotshells and 45 Long Colt ammunition without changing cylinders or barrels. Whether for home defense, hog hunting or plinking, the Circuit Judge will quickly become your go-to gun.
The rifle has been around for a couple of years so I was curious as to how well this novel firearm worked. A couple of years ago an article on the Taurus Judge Revolver which has some interesting features. They have come out with a rifle version of the Judge known as the Rossi Circuit Judge Rifle.
Furtheremore, is an insert that reduces the capacity to three rounds. For hunting migritory birds it is a federal law to have only three shots. Since the insert is easily removable it might cause a legal problem in some areas so that is something to be aware of. If you are in doubt about the legality of any firearm it is a lot cheaper to check it out before a game warden gives you a citation. It would make a nice rabbit gun out to 20 or so yards with a load of #6 shot. Its lightweight and quick shoulder acquisition would make snap shots easy. Again, check for legality in your area.
In addition, the 5 shot rifle has a double action trigger pull which is somewhat heavy for accurate work. The Judge is designed for close range self-defense against intruders or rattle snakes on a hiking trail.
