.357 Rossi 24” Octagonal Lever

Been looking casually for awhile for another one, had an R92 .357 Stainless short barrel about ten years ago that I regretted selling as the .357 lever guns don’t seem to sit on the shelf much in shops. Found one today at one of the first shops I ever patronized- The Gun Shop in Essex. They never have disappointed me there, but hadn’t stopped by there in 8yrs, and they didn’t disappoint today. .357 R92 24” Octagonal barrel. They also had the blued Henry short barrel .357 lever and about 10 in various other calibers if anyone else is looking.

Nice! Is .357 a good choice if I only want one lever gun?

IMHO .357 is an outstanding choice- fun to shoot, almost no recoil, can shoot .38 specials also to save on ammo cost, can use for hunting as well of course, and can be compatible with any .38/.357 revolvers you may own. I could go on and on...

As for having one, not sure one of any style is ever enough, mine are .22, .357, and .30-30.

Nice pick up and that's got to be like shooting a .22 out of that barrel.

Guessing it will be- believe it’s about 8lbs. Definitely feels much more substantial than the stainless carbine R92 I had years ago, and the fit and finish is much better also. This one doesn’t seem to have the rough edges around the loading gate, and Brazilian hardwood stock set seems much nicer.

Almost bought a Henry 22 octagon, literally ready to put out the money when a 1903 came to me . I didn’t get the Henry . Bought a Uberti 357 few months back , all slicked up . Love it . 22 or a 44 lever next .question is which one is coming home first.

Not completely accurate. I had to get longer .38 Specials to run in my 92 clone otherwise it wouldn't feed properly.

Really? I used to shoot different types of .38’s through my old R92 - even handloaded wadcutters fed with no issue and those are probably the shortest length rounds there are in the caliber. Maybe it was that example due to fit and finish for you?

I'll jump in and add my praise to the chorus of .357 lever gun sycophants. My Marlin 1894 is the most enjoyable gun to shoot that I own. Just enough recoil to let you know you've got some power going down range. I'm glad I reload because it's easy to burn up a lot of ammo.
