    Picked up a Rossi 92

    Finally got my .357 rifle/pistol combo. Rossie 92 and a Ruger Blackhawk.

    Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I'm really looking forward to it. I've got an older Winchester 94 in .30-30, but this one should be a little more economical to shoot.

    Just need to get rid of that fugly safety, lol.

    haha, so I'm not the only one? That's good to know, lol.

    Yeah, it's a good feeling. And this was an especially potent "high", as I was adding a whole new caliber and style to the collection.

    I think there is a guy in the Houston area, that makes a plug, to replace that safety. I'll try to dig up that info. I didn't like mine at first, but pay no attention to it anymore. My combo is in .45 Colt, Ruger Vaquero. My 92 has the 20" octagonal barrel.

    Maybe this guy, the Rossi 92 guru.... http://www.stevesgunz.com/ He's actually in Beaumont. I, too, have a 92 and a Blackhawk...and a couple of Taurus .357s to boot.

    That's the guy. If you are a purist, that should be the ticket. I know that safety is redundant, but it's a lawyer thing, and useless in my opinion.
    What about your sights? Most leave a lot to desire, at least the rear sight anyway. For such beautiful rifles, you'd think they could put a nice rear sight on them. That's fixable too though.

    Congrats on the new pair! (Guns that is ) I have the 92 Carbine in 45 Long Colt and the Ruger Blackhawk in the same. They are a ton of fun to shoot! Enjoy!

    Speaking of fun, I loaded up a few rounds of .45 Colt with Hodgdon 777, blackpowder substitute, with 255 grain lead bullets today. I can't wait to try them out in my 92 and Vaquero in the next few days. I just can't seem to get away from the old days.

    Re: Picked up a Rossi 92

    The Vaquero is the Taurus cowboy revolver, right? I looked around for one of those, as it seemed the appropriate companion. I guess they don't make them anymore, huh?

    Definitely going to look at that plug for the safety. And might get the metal magazine follower, also, as I heard that the yellow plastic one it comes with can cause issues, too.

    Sights, I'm not sure...I'm not going to be doing much shooting past 100 yards or so. We'll see how it goes after I get it out the range.

    The Vaquero is made by Ruger. Taurus made the Gaucho. You can still find them new out there if you shop around.
