    My Rossi 92's

    For CAA matches these are hard to beat. About 10+ years ago I bought a new Winchester 92 in .45 Colt but it would not feed reliably to save it's life. I traded in at a PA gun show for a used Rossi in same caliber. Liked it so much that when I ran across another in .44 Magnum I grabbed that one also. The upper one (.44 Mag) has a saddle ring w/ a Puma head on the left side while the lower one in .45 Colt does not. These rifles are great values. Paid less then $300.00 for each.

    I don't believe so but I am not certain. The 30-30 is a true rifle cartridge and the 92's are meant for pistol cartridges.

    Re: My Rossi 92's

    I sit around and just look at mine and admire sometimes. The things are western art in gun metal. I've had mine since about 86. Bought it for a light caliber brush hunting rifle and mainly because it fired my handgun ammo of the time. I really haven't hunted much with it, though, but it's a very versatile rifle, light .38s for squirrel and small game to 50 yards and heavy magnum loads for deer/hogs to 100 yards. Tough rifle to beat as an all around gun.

    My son-in-law has one in .45 Colt, recently had the loading gate spring replaced as it was getting weak and causing the rounds to hang up. That's a strong enough action to fire the Ruger/TC only 300 grain hot loads I shoot in my Blackhawk and Contender. We chronographed that load at over 1400 fps. That'll floor any hog in the brush out to as far as you can hit it. But, I like the .357's versatility with the .38s. I load a 105 grain lead SWC to about 900 fps and it's 2" accurate at 50 yards, good enough substitute for a .22 and the pop is about like shooting .22. My gun has a ghost ring aperture from an old .22 rifle in the dovetail and his has had a Williams receiver sight installed. The one thing BAD I'll say about the rifles is, the stock rear sight really sucks.

    BTW, the puma head fell out of mine within a few range trips. LOL I didn't try to solder it in or anything. I've lost it long ago.

    There is no .30-30 available, but there IS a .454 Casull available that pushes the .45-70 for big bang bullets. Who needs the .30-30? It's a short pistol action, though, originally chambered in the 92 winchester for such as .38-40 and .44-40 and .25-20 and such.

    I've seen others ask this question on various forums, but no definitive answer. Will a Rossi 92 in .454 Casull reliably cycle .45 Long Colt?
