Rossi Rio Bravo .22 LR Lever Action?

Seen this one advertised online & am considering buying one but want to get reviews from those of you who have one or have fired one.

As many of you know, Rossi levergun quality is 'iffy at best & even when the picture quality looks good, their workmanship leaves much to be desired once you get one in hand.

I have seen reviews that tell me if it has a Zamak frame avoid it
like the plague.
Check the barrel and make sure there is no movement as the
barrel spacer is known to break.
Brand new rifle showed up with the spacer broken in half.
The guy said Customer Service SUCKS no one is ever there.

Thanks for the input. I wouldn't have thought to figure that one about the frame. These gun manufacturers are doing all kinds of things nowadays to cut costs, especially the offshore ones like Rossi, & replacing regular metal parts with plastic junk & other substitute metals are not uncommon.
