    Hmmmm, well after this video I don’t think I would buy a Rossi RS22M .22wmr . Good review, thanks for the information. Send it back and demand the paperwork.
    God Bless (us all)

    I have this same gun and I don’t have that flare

    It could possibly be the ammo and not the rifle. If the other ammo doesn’t do that, it’s obviously the ammo. I’ve never heard the term "chamber support." That doesn’t mean a thing, because I’ve not heard many terms. That’s a new one on me! I’ll have to check mine out the next time I shoot it. I only use CCI Maxi-Mags.

    Dude I sold the 22lr version after a week. Love other rossi guns but these are not made quality

    I agree with you on the uniformity of the beveling. It is as if the barrel chamber was not completely squared up with the lathe when it was cut. I also do not feel the dealer sent it back. At the very least they could have provided the end user with a copy of the paper work, but in my opinion I don’t think they took the time or forgot about it and then just said okay it’s done. By them not providing the paper work makes it very suspect to me. Lastly I’ve been researching 22 WMR semi-autos looking at the Savage A22 the CZ Model 512 and now the Rossi RS22M. One thing I found is that older semi autos in 22 WMR did not do well because the blow back operation was taking place too quickly resulting in failures. New models of the Savage and the CZ have incorporated a delayed blow back system allowing the pressure to fall off before the actual extraction of the brass. I’m wondering if Rossi has not incorporated this and is working with older technology. That’s also why I’ve stayed away from looking at older models of semi-auto 22 WMR. They were just not reliable.

    I had a squib round in mine after about 50 rounds, I’m new to guns, but that seemed strange. The ammo was recently purchased. Wonder if it is related to your issues? ( it wasn’t Aguila).

    Send it back after a phone call to the mfg with a specific RMA and include spent brass WITH A NOTE identifying the issue

    That is really suspect that the dealer didn’t include the repair/warranty paperwork. They may not have even sent the firearm back. I worked retail firearms for a number of years and never had a manufacturer not send back paperwork on what was repaired/replaced to include Rossi. Try emailing Rossi to verify what they did to the gun.

    Damn! Too bad Rossi didn’t fix the rifle, I was about ready to retire my old Marlin 922M (22wmr) and get a new RS22m with a 10 shot mag. Guess I’ll just hold on to it, because it always fires and has never needed repair. RS=real shitty 22m

    It’s the ammo, not the gun. There is another video with a cmr30 using aguilla blowing a case just like this. The pmr30 in the same video didn’t blow because the shorter barrel creates lower pressures. The guy in the video referred to the aguilla as "bolt action only ammo".

    Factory glock barrels also have unsupported chambers. They bulge worse than this.
