Been eyeing one of these. While I already have a Rossi 62, the 572 is more of an "adult" sized gun. Anyone owning one of these care to chime in whether you are glad you have it, or is it something on the trading block?
I had one for many years. It is a full-sized rifle; I think the older models were made with 19" and 23" barrels. I picked it up to shoot quiet ammo like CCI CB .22 Shorts, as it was really quiet with those loads (and the tube held like 25 rounds of Short-length ammo!). Accuracy was okay, nothing to get excited about, typical hunting-rifle accuracy (exact accuracy depended on the load, of course, but it never shot REALLY well with anything).
Super reliable (as one might expect). Things I didn't like: finish on the alloy receiver is easy to scratch, rifle is a bit rattly-loose (par for the course with most pump-action .22s), and full disassembly isn't very easy. Eventually, I found a better host for quiet ammo (BL-22), and I traded it off. My old 572:
