Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Rossi Firearms -- REDUCED PRICE - Rossi 92 .357/.38 spl w/ XS sights

Great .357/.38 Spl Rossi Lever Action - Get your cowboy on!!



Here is an excellent reincarnation of the fabled Winchester 1892 Lever Action rifle, the Rossi R92 chambered in .357 Caliber, manufactured in Brazil by Taurus's Rossi holdings and imported by Braztech in Miami.

Its only departure from the classic 1892 design is a hammer block safety, mounted unobtrusively on top of the bolt just forward of the hammer.
Metal is entirely blue steel. Forend and buttstock appear to be Brazilian Walnut. Buttplate is blue steel as well. Weight is a pleasantly balanced 6 pounds empty. Barrel is 20 inches long, and capacity is 10 +1 rounds of .357 Magnum or .38 Special. Weight empty is only 6 pounds, and overall length is a compact 37 inches.
I have made a number of improvements:
  • 1. The carrier is polished for ease of cycling. This is a lot of extra work but the loading is super smooth.
  • 2. The springs have also been alter slightly for ease of function.
  • 3. XS sights have been added. PLease look at the target. They have been zeroed for a .357 though the .38 drops about 2 inches below zero.
  • The Range Report:
    So here is the straight dope on what this rifle will do. I took the rifle out this afternoon 9 Apr and tried three types of ammunition. PRVI .38 Special, Remington .357, and .38 Wadcutters. All fed reliably, except for the Wadcutters, no suprise.

    CAUTION:Anything shorter that Lead Round Nose in .38 Special (LRN) will not feed well, though I did try a number of .38 and they generally ran well.

    Speaking of loading, this is the easiest lever action I have owned for loading. No pinched or cut thumbs. Slow, as all lever actions are, but painless to be sure.

    This rifle has all the potential to be a good cowboy gun, deer gun, or cheap plinker.

    Payment and Shipping Instructions:
    I will accept all forms of paper payment. However, I will hold personal checks until they clear. I will also only ship to an FFL holder. Shipping is a flat $20 and includes padded sleeve (as seen in the pics)

    Questions for Users

        Q:  Where are you located in Virginia? 04/11/2010
            A:  I am located in Norfolk Virginia. However, all transfers will have to go through an FFL. 04/11/2010

        Q:  Can you describe the hairline crack above the third flat head screw? Is it cosmetic or is it something that should be fixed by a gunsmith before doing a lot of shooting? Are you an FFL? I live outside of Richmond so if I bid and win I could save shipping and FFL transfer fee if that were an option. That was the reason of my previous post. Still have the background check fee of course... 04/11/2010
            A:  It's purely cosmetic and a sample of my poor screwdriver skills. Its actually pretty hard to see. 04/11/2010

        Q:  You can disregard my last question. I am really looking for the 16 inch barrel (should have read more carefully). Nice gun at a nice price! 04/11/2010
            A:  Thanks for looking. 04/11/2010
