I'll get some impressions up once she is home, I plan on ordering Steve's kit and doing the fluff n buff/action job and a stainless plug for the safety, and probably polishing the loading gate as I am not a fan of the contrasting finish on it - She is stainless with gorgeous dark wood- thanks Smoky Mtn Guns & Ammo for a great deal!

Beautiful. You are right the stain is more of a dark walnut instead of the reddish oak stain on mine. Let us know how steve's parts workout for you.

These things are pretty smooth right out of the box, but with a little action work and a few additions they can be buttery smooth in no time. Very easy to do.

Yep, I cleaned and lubed mine working the action a couple of hundred time. Good to go!

I have a 30-30 94 for deer, but I can’t help still wanting a Rossi 92. And I’m still on the fence between 357 and 45. I keep weighing the pros and cons: cost, availability, plinking, self defense, deer. I think I’m leaning 357 for practical reasons but just really like the idea of 45 instead. If I have the 30-30 for deer, I should probably go 357 for the Rossi for plinking and self defense. I’ve been weighing these same questions over and over AND over for probably a year or more.

Congrats on your 92! Beautiful gun. Have fun shooting it.

For me it came down to which caliber could I 'all purpose' with in a pistol carbine that was more punch than a 9mm

I have three 357's (605, SP101, and S&W Model 66) and three 38's now (S&W 642, wifes 642, and the Taurus 856 Executive) so it was no question to add the Rossi in 357

My friend on the other hand has a few firearms in 45LC and wants a lever gun as well so for him it would make sense to get 45LC - he is also getting a Judge since he shoots 410 as well (whereas I keep 12ga only)

Either way - you can't go wrong - get one now! They have a few more back in stock at KyGunCo now in 357 and 45LC

I have a blue 20” 92 in 357/38 and love the thing. It’s here to stay. Plus the wife would shoot me with it if I wanted to get rid of it.
