Rossi 92

Any experience with function and quality of the Rossi 92 in 38/357. The 20 inch octagon barrel looks interesting to me....how is it for balance? Maybe do some action shooting into the future. Thanks.

    I had one with the 20" round barrel for a long time, it was one pretty gun, great wood and bluing, perfect fit. However I never could get it to feed correctly, it would bind up when feeding the round from the mag to the chamber. I took it to a CAS gunsmith (Walker '47 in Fullerton, Ca) for a once-over, he said this was a common thing with that particular gun/caliber. Even after he worked on it the thing was still balky, so I sold it off.

    Before you buy, make sure it feeds 38's and 357's without a hiccup. If you get a gem, they're nice guns.

    I have one of the short barreled ones.
    It needed a little smoothing up, I also bought a new steel mag follower and a plug to replace the ugly safety.
    Web search for Steve's Gunz.
    With my eyes it's a good 50 yard shooter.

    I have 2 Rossi's, one in .39/.357, the other in .44mag. I had the .357 worked on at Walker 47 when they were at Hobby City on Beach Blvd. They did a fine action job on it. It's super smooth and reliable. The .44 has not had an action job but works fine.

    Use the Rossi .38 Sp all the time. Marlin and Winc stay at home
