    Re: rossi lever action

    I bought my Rossi 92 in .357 25 years ago. It's fantastic. I'm getting 1900 fps out of a 165 grain Lee gas checked SWC and have killed one deer at 80 yards with it. It's 4" at 100 yards accurate, limit of it's effectiveness on medium game IMHO. With a 105 grain Lee SWC over 2.3 grains of bullseye, it shoots 900 fps and 1.5" at 50 yards, makes a great small game gun. It'll take squirrel and on rabbits it beats a .22. Very versatile caliber.

    I changed the rear sight on mine to an aperture. The sight it comes with is pretty cheesy. I also added Uncle Mike's sling swivel studs.

    I've got an M92 in .45Colt, octagonal 20" barrel. Great shooter out to 100 yards. Like NT says, the rear sight is cheesy, but very functional. Other than that, these are very nicely made rifles. And they're a lot of fun to shoot. I gave something over $400 for mine, about a year or so ago. IIRC.

    They are mostly running $450 in blue and $500 in Stainless, cheaper in the round barrel version than the hex

    Re: rossi lever action

    Davidson's Gun Genie has a supply of R92's in 44-40, 45 LC, and 44 mag, none in stock in 357 mag which is what I want. Native Texan has convinced me the 357 is the way to go. My fav. gun dealer has a lightly used one in 45 LC for $400, but I dont want to add a new calber to my larder, and it would compliment my model 66 S & W to get a .357

    NT,

    I'd like to change out that rear sight too - what make aperture sight did you install? I've read on some CAS forums that Lyman has dropped some in quality. Was the install do-able (I'm experienced with some gunsmithing).

    With your SWC load, have you experienced a lot of barrel leading? If not, I have to get me some Lee moulds ASAP!

    thanks,

    Re: rossi lever action

    Well, I pulled my sight off an old .22 single shot I had, gun was about 70 years old, old Winchester. It fit in the dove tail. I pulled the disc out of it to make it a ghost ring. It has a very repeatable elevation knob, click adjust, which is handy when going from light .38 to .357.

    My SIL has a Williams receiver sight on his .45 Colt and it seems decent. I think they run under 100 bucks at midwayusa.com, but it will probably have to be drilled and tapped by a gunsmith for installation unless they've started doing that now. Where mine would go, the gun had a little puma medallion and, of course, it fell out. Was kinda goofy anyway, but the receiver isn't smooth enough for a sight mount there.

    Very Marlin looking. There is just something very wrong looking about a camo lever gun.
