    Brass Frame 1892 with SS Octagon Barrel....(pictures)

    I picked this up a couple days ago...........What do you think?











    Safety was removed along with the lettering and a SS plug was turned and installed.

    I think it's gorgeous... Give us a range report when you light 'er up!

    I took it to the range this morning. With some Ranch Dog bullets I cast out of Lyman #2 with 6.9g of Green Dot, I was shooting a 3" group, off hand at 50 yds! And I didn't have to touch the sights. It was spot on right from the factory. Amazing.

    the action needs some love. It is very stiff. I ordered a Lee Spring kit from Brownells and when it comes in I'll do some magic with stones and files and get it as smooth as my other two Rossi 1892 rifles.
