The Ruger is a really great gun by the way. I almost bought one for my cowboy action but they had discontinued the finish I wanted. I went with the Uberti Cattleman line as I could get the look I wanted. Mine are all in 45 Colt and now have 3 the 4.5", 5.5" and a 7.5" barrels. Now my Rossi 92 is also in 45 Colt with the 20" Octagon barrel. All of my guns including my 12 ga. mule ear side x side shotgun are finished in case hardened and blued with walnut.
Now the Rossi had a problem of the box it that it would feed more than 3 rounds before double feeding using dummy rounds not snap caps. I called Rossi, the same day I picked it up and had it back in 7 days. Never had another problem with it feeding. Then after putting at least 1000 rounds through it. I decided to invest in the Steve Gunz DVD and kit (one package) as well as his safety plug (removes the lawyer safety very easily allowing to be put back). The DVD takes you through his tune up break down and reassemble procedures as well as his custom tune of the action, and smoothed out the feel of the gun a lot. You can check it out at Steve's Gunz Web Store, The Home of the Rossi 92 Specialist also Brownell sells some parts and sight setups also.
Now a lot of my NCOWS group shoot the 357/38 versions of the both guns and love them. Now the only problem I heard of having with the 357/38 Rossi is some of them had a problem with feeding both consistently. Now this isn't true with all but some. Now with that said the one that had a problem was with either the 38 or the 357 but not both. Now lately those that have bought them new haven't reported the problem but if so they will fix it under warranty.
