Back in the day… there used to be all kinds of break-action, single-shot firearms that people could shoot, hunt, and play with in abundant cartridge offerings. You had your Thompson Contenders, New England Firearms (NEF) Pardners, Harrington & Richardson (H&R) SB1 or SB2, and many others. Nowadays, your options are very limited, if not, non-existent. Now, Rossi USA is revitalizing that category by introducing the Rossi Brawler!
Rossi Coverage @ TFB:
The Rossi Brawler is an ultra-affordable, break-action, single-shot pistol chambered for the high-utility, high-entertainment rounds of .410 Gauge and .45 Long Colt. At an MSRP of $239.99, this should be something that fits into everyone’s budget. It also comes with nice accouterments like a rail for optics, iron sights, and an ergonomic rubber grip. The rest of the nitty-gritty specs can be read below as presented by Rossi USA:
- Cartridge: .45 Long Colt / .410 Gauge Magnum (3″ shells or 2 1/2″)
- Capacity: 1 Round
- Sights: Fixed Front with Serrated Rear
- Action: Single-Action Only (SAO)

For when you only need one shot, there’s the Rossi Brawler. You can throw down on anything from rattlesnakes to medium-sized game thanks to the Brawler’s ability to fire either 45 Colt or a 410 shotshell. Plus, with the integrated picatinny rail, you’re also not stuck using one grain weight ammo. You can attach any optic of your choice to the Brawler and zero your point of impact exactly.
This is your next adventure gun. A simple break-action and cross bolt safety give you the same ruggedness as a flint axe. The Brawler’s trigger is another point of simplicity – a single action trigger. Cock the hammer, fire the shot, reload. No messing around with the Brawler. The rubbergrip cushions your hand against 410 shotshell recoil from the mildest birdshot up to serious 3 inch 410 bore magnum ammo.
Throw down with the Brawler today, and you’ll be prepared for anything the woods can throw at you.
A break-action, single-shot .410 Gauge/.45 Long Colt wasn’t on my 2023 Bucket List of guns to buy this year, but the Rossi Brawler honestly looks pretty tempting. Who feels like wrangling some snakes, or simply plinking pop cans? As always, let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.
