    "+P" .45 colt loads in rossi '92

    I was looking at double tap and buffalo bore .45 colt ammo and it says it's safe for modern 1892's and I was wondering if this included the rossi clone. I looked at one yesterday with a 16" barrel. I've always wanted a "trapper" lever action and I already have a ruger blackhawk .45(hence the hot loads)
    while most people ask why, I ask why not.

    It should take anything the Ruger will take in a safe load.

    cool. I was really impressed with how smooth the action was and how light and compact it was. I had almost put the idea of getting one out of my mind since I already have like 4 truck/woods carbines but it's just such a slick little gun

    I have a 20" octagonal barreled M92, and wouldn't hesitate for a minute about using .45 Colt +P. These are rugged little rifles.

    thanks for the reports guys. the only other question: what are my options for upgrading the sights?

    The rear sights are a little cheesy, but function very well on my rifle. There are options for replacement from what I've read in the past, but I haven't persued them yet. I probably will eventually just for the improved appearance I think I'll gain. One that comes to mind is Marble's sights, if I recall correctly.

    +1 on the Marbles, but expect sticker shock. I believe Williams makes a set as well.

    I ordered the marbles Ghost Ring from Steve'sGunz. He has several options on his website. Even a Skinner style that replaces the POS safety.

    Ghost ring is the way to go on these rifles. I got mine off an old .22, fits in the dove tail, and works very well.

    Yes, it's absolutely safe in your rifle. I shoot a LOT of "Ruger Only" loads in mine. It will put a nice bruise on your shoulder, though. Odd that I can shoot a cuppla hundred shells through my 12 gauge and the shoulder gets just a little soreness that's gone by the next day.

    A 255 grain .45 Colt at 1750+ fps outta that little rifle hits hard on BOTH ends. Folks see me shooting it at our outdoor range and come ask about it. I'll load 'em up a tube and hand it to 'em. Very few will shoot the whole tube, they shoot two or three rounds then hand it back to me, say thanks, that's a nice gun; then walk away mumbling to themselves.

    Ah, and I agree on the sights. I had the Williams reciever sight installed on mine. Very accurate at 100 yards.
    If'n it ain't broke, then it don't need fixin'
