    Rossi m92 in 480?

    Anyone know if there are any plans to bring this one back? Did they get the early bugs worked out?

    I'm not sure why it'd have bugs, same as the .454 which is essentially the .45 Colt on steroids. I'd rather have the .454, anyway, for the fact I could shoot my .45Colt loads in it.

    THE man for anything Rossi '92 is Steve Young at Rossi 92 Specialist, Nate Kiowa Jones a.k.a. Steve Young - Professional Gunsmith . I know he's talked about working over several .454's for folks that want to use them for bear guns while hiking or for pig guns in the brush.

    I have wondered about how well the 454 would work with 45 Colt and would love to try one. If it would handle the 45 Colt ammo as dependable as mine does I would jump on one if I found one.

    I would rather see a .475 that will also run .480 but I think I'm just dreaming on that one. But that Big Horn Armory in .500 keeps looking more and more interesting every time I read up on it. But I also don't have $2K falling out of my butt. I keep checking though...

    The issue you will find is that the '92 is EXTREMELY cartridge length sensitive. There's a 'sweet spot' in overall length for the shorter cartridges that will give you the reliability of feeding that you will want. CAS shooters have discovered this in the '92 when trying to shoot .38's in .357's and, to a lesser extent, .44 Specials in .44 Mags.

    Yes, being a NCOWS shooter (another form of CAS) is why I was a bit skeptical of it functioning properly with 45 LC as 454 are flat not usable in this group. Both of my pistols are 45 and my Rossi is also. I actually shoot black powder loads through them all.

    Something like that or the .454 would be magic for trekking in big-game country!
