Judge gets a new lease on life...?

Postby Old Vagabond » 13 Jul 2016 23

Hey Guys...
This is my first post and I wanted to tell you all something. I had been looking for a new CJ for awhile and just could not find one in stock here in Tucson. I even had a local gun shop try and locate one via his distributors with no luck. That said, I managed to find a used one in a different gun shop that had not been received into inventory, and it was in decent shape. I paid $450 out the door..tax and everything. It is a 45/410 and was missing one of the chokes...the rifled choke. Again...I could not (and still have yet to ) find one. So I visited the Rossi website and noticed that the page was empty for the CJ. I did a chat and asked if the gun has been or is being discontinued. He said that production has been stopped but they were planning to re-introduce it in 2017. Anyone have any idea what that even means.

Welcome to the forum Old Vagabond! Unfortunately it probably means that you will not be able to find a choke until they return. That probably should be "if" they return.

I'm going to send you a PM with a link to one that is available. I would strongly suggest that you not hesitate to buy it now as it is going to be very tough to find one.

Don't ask me to do anything where where I can't take Bible and Gun, I would leave Dog home, but reluctantly.

Thanks for the welcome...
I already saw that Ebay post, and bought it but then canceled the order when I realized that it was the smooth choke. I already have that choke and was looking for the rifled choke. Thanks for mentioning it though...

I dialed the 1 800 eat rossi phone number, put it on speaker phone and made lunch. 42 min later some lady answered. I told her I wanted to buy a choke tube for Circuit Judge,,,,,
She said.
"We have them,,,,,,,,oh wait, they are on back order."
So I asked, has the Circuit Judge been discontinued?
She said, "We have them, oh wait, we havent seen one in quite a while.
We are expecting a shipment soon, would you like to put your name on a list?"

:? I said,,,good bye,,,,

I spoke with a machinist today, told him what you needed but he is not capable with the tooling he has.
I willkeep my eye open, Utah is a big gun state, if I find one I will buy it and post pic here with price.
