my dad just gave me a gun he aquired years ago.  just wondering if anyone has one or knows anything about it.  its a 22 pump.  here are the markings:

top of barrel - AMADEO ROSSI S.A.
right side barrel - MADE IN BRAZIL
left side barrel - INTERARMS, ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA
behind rear site - .22 S-L-LR
left side reciever - ROSSI emblem

i found a rossi website but couldnt find any info on this model.  it looks exactly like the one on this page www.weareguns.com/Taurusm62.htm but there is no tauras markings on this one.  did they buy them out or something.  just curious about this rifle.  thanks for any info.

Sound like a gallery gun. Rossi made them a few years back, I don't know if they still do.

I've got one just like it. It was one of the guns beside the .22 chipmunk bolt that I started shooting with when I was 5.  They are nice shooting little guns.

Durk,
  I'm 25 now so I guess I probably shot that gun from when I was 6-10 years old.  Use to shoot it at the log pile with my dad in the mountains.
