ROSSI M92 CARBINE 357 MAG/38 SPL 20" STAINLESS 10RD $534.99

If anyone is wanting a stainless 357/38 SPL Rossi, they appear to be back in stock at KYGUNCO.com

https://kygunco.com/Product/View?ItemNo=95118

Cash / Text-A-Check Price : $534.99

I paid a little less when I bought mine but that still seems like a good price. Mine seems to shoot very well and its operation is quite smooth. The fit and finish on mine is very good. No mismatched edges between the wood and the receiver, and no burrs or sharp edges on the metal parts. I had a chamber concern that Rossi fixed under warranty. I'm happy with mine.

This is from the thread I started back when I bought mine.

As FYI

Here are my posts regarding the chamber/brass issue that was corrected under warranty.

The original chamber is bright stainless steel from the look of it. I think the repaired one is black steel. I wonder if they bored out the end of the barrel and put a sleeve plug in to repair it?

Does it shoot 38 and 357 just fine, interchangeably or does it have to be a certain grain, like 158? Thanks

Mine shoots everything (now). I use 130 gr 38 SPL (because it's what was available) and 142 gr and 158 gr 357 mag.

Out of the box, it did have issues feeding the slightly shorter 38's. I had to do a little work on the cartridge stop and left cartridge guide with a file.

http://www.rossiusa.com/pdf/rossi_manual_M92.pdf parts 44 and 45 on page 20 of the PDF.

Here is another link to the fix-it DIYs on you tube.

Not all of these will have issues with the chamber. Mine looks fine. Not sure how common that issue is, but it's nice to know that Rossi will fix it.

Be advised that you will need to clean the chamber very well if you shoot a lot of .38 Special. The .38's leave a ring of carbon and lead in the gap ahead of the case. 357 Magnum can get stuck in the dirt ring, and the case will rip in half on ejecting. Getting that broken piece out can be entertaining.

Any thoughts on how these stack up
against a JM Marlin 357, or the
current Remlin version? One day, I will
add a lever 357 to the stable...but, then
there’s that pesky mortgage.

I wanted a leaver Rifle to add to the tribe, already have a few 38/357's hand guns on hand so the Rossi M92 would be a great option, my birthday is coming up so run it by the financial manager who gave me the thumbs up, got one in the wind for a next week delivery. Got a box of 38 spec and 357 waiting for it.

I have not shot mine up against any others, but since I got it back from Rossi, I have had excellent results at 25 yards, which is as far the TMGN range goes. Before the repair it was hitting the target left and low. Now it seems to be spot on.

As DutchV said, his was good right out of the box. I'm very happy with mine.
