The level of smoothness or polish you get with Rossis is a bit of a dice roll.... there is a lot of variance in their quality control. I got one where it clicked and the action is even smoother than my Marlin. I have two of their revolvers that are as rough as their reputation. Luck of the draw, I guess. I would recommend buying a Rossi in person if you can, even if it costs a few extra $$$. See what card you're drawing. The one thing that all Rossis will have is stupid light weight... their website claims something like 4.5 pounds and I believe them. They feel like a BB gun. Feed it some 38s that have ZERO kick in a rifle, and you have yourself one hell of a big boy toy. The Henry is a beautiful gun with an outstanding action, but the weight is a dealbreaker for me. They are around 8 pounds, with a thick front-heavy octagonal barreI. It carries like a full sized 30-06, and that's a hard sell after you've been spoiled by the Rossi.
