User Name Remember Me? Is that true? A quick search of the internet shows a real scarcity. Age and infirmity will be putting an end to most of my shooting before long and I have begun thinning my collection of guns including several M92, new and used, in44, 45 Colt. I have been trying to price them and can not find any used ones on the market so I could get some idea what is a fair price in today's market.

Model Ross has reduced the number of variations in the Rossi Model 92 recently, and they are a bit harder to find then they used to be, but they are still in production. Currently they are cataloging the following:.

If it not cataloged you're going to be paying more. Currently if it's a. There are not many out there, but then demand is also pretty low. If you want one, get it now as I have no idea when Rossi will start making them again. Last edited by Model 52; at PM. Hate to hear Rossi decision to discontinue their M lever action. I have one in. I looked at a copy of The Shooters Biblethe other day, and it seems like they had three times as many firearms than then listed today.

He went entirely to Win. Competitors found that the older M design will always be the faster cycling carbine. And this probably had a lot to do with Winchester selling their older model, 73 levers, for so long, into the M era.The Rossi Model 92, a replica of the legendary Winchester Model 92, has been around in various forms for many years now, and has almost achieved legendary status of its own. For the most part, the Rossi Puma 92 rifles are dandy little weapons, are made of pretty strong steels, and work well.

The current Model 92 Rossis have a little safety lever attached atop the bolt that looks like an afterthought, because that is exactly what it is. It is, thankfully, easily removable, and a plain pin can be installed to fill the hole, but there is an even better filler for that little hole to be available soon. The Rossi has been, and still is, available in several different configurations, as were the original Winchesters.

The latest Rossis are also available made primarily of stainless steel, if desired.

My favorite of the bunch is the little pre-safety sixteen inch. The combination of a sealed breech and long barrel really brings the efficient little cartridge to life, and it can be safely loaded up to. The only drawback of the little Rossi rifles and carbines is that they could be a bit smoother in function.

Some work pretty well as is, but most all of them could be a little slicker. The Model 92 rifle, when timed, fitted, and properly polished is one of the smoothest, and strongest, lever actions ever designed. When asked why he chose to specialize in the Rossi rifles, he says that all of the other guns were already taken.

Reason enough. Steve is also a Cowboy Action competitor himself, going by the alias of Nate Kiowa Jonesso he understands what a competitive shooter needs. Steve can really make the little Rossis run. Timing and feeding are important on these guns, and Steve polishes them where they should be polished, and tweaks the action for smooth running with no hang-ups.

In a CAS match, one bobble can mean the difference between winning and being an also-ran. The 92 was a much stronger, handier, and lighter rifle than its predecessor; the Winchester Model The Model 92 is still a dandy choice for a defensive carbine, and much preferred to any handgun. It carries more power, and is easier to deliver aimed fire.

The little lever action carbines are pretty much overlooked these days as a fighting weapon in favor of AR carbines and pistol-caliber autoloaders, but a slick little levergun is one of the best choices available. In this latter context, a smooth-running weapon is even more important than in any shooting match. I have three Rossi. Steve adjusts the loading gate spring to ease loading, adjusts the ejector spring, magazine spring, and trigger return and hammer springs. He does timing work when needed to assure proper and smooth function, and pretty much just makes the gun "slicker".

He removes any sharp edges and burrs from the action and loading gate area, and as an option, replaces the plastic followers with a metal one.

After getting the little carbine back from Steve, it is the slickest Rossi that I have. If you need a new Model 92, Steve can supply those as well.

He gives every gun a good going-over and an action job, and that is included in his price. Also, Steve can eliminate the little safety flapper atop the bolt for an extra charge.

As alluded to earlier, Steve is working on an aperture sight that will replace the safety lever, resulting in eliminating the eyesore, and adding a very practical sight at the same time.

Steve Young also works over revolvers and shotguns, making them race-ready for competition. Got something to say about this article? Want to agree or disagree with it?Log in or Sign up. Rossi Rossi Model 92 in. Oct 21, 1. Been around Winchester and Marlin lever action rifles for about 35 years, but recently got a wild hair and decided a Rossi Model 92 in. Looked around and read some reviews So, decided to give the Rossi M92 a try.

Ordered one with the 24" Octagonal barrel; have always liked heavier barrels on rifles. Picked up the rifle a few days ago. Action is pretty smooth for a new one.

Date of birth and abby blumer

Good trigger. Butt plate fit is poor, but the rest of the stock fit is very good. Nice bluing and a real pretty barrel nothing like looking down a new, clean, rifled barrel A good looking, well balanced rifle. Cycles gr and gr. A couple of rough cycles, but not bad for a new one. Will not cycle.

Rams them rounds into the breech at about a 45 degree angle and that's the end of that. Managed to coax a couple into the chamber to fire the rifle, but they will not chamber on their own.

No level of lever rigor or finesse makes it happy. The heavier the hand, the harder it rams the bullets into the face of the breech. Now I am scratching my head trying to decide whether to go to all the trouble of getting Rossi to agree to fix and return it, or just attempt to work on it myself.

Difficult to understand how a rifle can leave the factory if it cannot actually chamber the round it was designed to fire. Hope to get this corrected - the rifle looks to be a keeper if it will just function properly. Oct 21, 2. I would take it back to the gun shop you bought it from and get them to exchange it. It is worth the trouble and anything you do to it will void your warranty. Oct 21, 3. I'm not sure about the current quality of the Rossi rifles.

I bought one 20 or 25 years ago and it has no feed problems. I'd do like texmidwest says and return it to the point of purchase or Rossi.

Don't try modding a new rifle and expect them to honor the warrantee! Oct 21, 4.That of course raises the question of what I DO like.

Specifically, what high capacity repeating rifle do I like? The image below is my Rossi R It is a Rossi branded clone of the venerable Winchestera John Moses Browning designed and Winchester manufactured rifle of yesteryear.

They brought it back due to the popularity of Cowboy Action Shooting. Those light. Rossi has been making their clone rifle for quite some time, and doing it for half the price. I primarily load it with my. The cartridges are front to back in the magazine tube instead of one on top of another like in a box magazine. In my world, guns are working guns and expected to earn their keep. The rifle weighs a handy 5lbs, which makes it lighter than most folks loaded ARs.

That has been a godsend on many scouting trips, believe you me. The recessed oval in the side of the receiver is pushed inward and cartridges are fed into the opening. If you shot a Marlin. The loading gate type is quicker to reload under stress, especially if you carry your ammo the way I do. I mentioned my. Put another way, the. The bullet diameter and case rim and all are exactly the same, so the bullets on my belt slides I have two, even though only one is pictured can feed either my rifle or my sixgun.

Lever action, exposed hammer, bead-and-buckhorn sights, and the familiar straight grip stock of a Winchester. The sling and sling studs were not on the rifle when I bought it, discussed further below in the modifications section.

Yes, the Rossi R92 features a manual safety. It is just rear of the bolt, and turns one way to fire and one way to safe. Fire is painted red, Safety is painted green. Believe me, I understand the argument for manual safeties on firearms.

I understand it better than you might think. I lost someone very dear to me as a child due to unsafe gun handling, and I saw what it did to everyone who loved them.Looks like there will be a shortage of 92's for a while I guess that explains why there aren't but 4 on GunBroker Maybe good time to move that Rossi that's been in the back of the safe for a few years.

LGS had several a month or so ago but were all gone the next time we visited. In fact, I don't think I've even seen a Henry in 45 Colt My Henry golden Boy is in 45 Colt and so is my Rossi In fact all of my SASS revolvers are 45 colt also.

I think I might like 45 colt. My Henry is 45 colt and it is a sweet shooter. Just a little slow on a reload. Even the Rossi revolvers are all disco?!? I know some people think they're junk but mine has been a helluva little shooter for the price I paid. Was pondering letting another one go but guess I'll hang on to it as insurance in case I have problems with the two I shoot all the time.

There are still R92 being imported. If you look at the list of guns they are producing and shipping they are all. Don't care about Rossi. I love my Uberti 73 "Codymatic" in. My four. That will send the value of Rossi.

I wonder about parts for same? Seems like everything CAS is going to. I have a Rossi '92 pre-safety 24" in the back of the safe. It seems like near everybody's go a Rossi in the safe. I haven't shot it in years, mostly been using my '73's. Maybe I ought to take it out and shoot long-range pistol caliber with it. I believe he did address this in a previous post.

GOGTV 2017 - Rossi R92 Carbine

There are logistics issues with the purchase by Taurus and at the moment. Hopefully he will see this post and jump in.Remember Me? Results 1 to 9 of 9. Thread: Early Interarms Rossi Thread Tools Show Printable Version. Early Interarms Rossi 92 I bought my Rossi 92 in a couple of years ago. I wanted the gun, it was unfired and it was an old one. Too much at the time but now I am beginning to wonder if I really by accident did the right thing. It was imported by Interarms and so stamped on the barrel.

Any info on them? It would appear the quality is not even close to today's Rossis - it is head and shoulders above it. Any premium attached to the very early I assume Interarms Rossi 92's? Anyone have any experience with these? I have two of them that I bought new and would not sell them period.

I have no idea as to their cash value but mine just keep on ticking along and are my favorite lever actions. I have owned two Interarms Rossi rifles.

When Interarms imported the rifle they gave Rossi a specification sheet on how they wanted them built. All the Interarms were a very nice deep blue with walnut wood stocks. They made the Hartford models which were also good to have. Your rifle is worth more than you paid. I wonder No safety, very deep blue, well finished, and a faithful recreation of the 92, nice wood. I would be interested in doing some research for info on these guns. My google-fu comes up with some stuff.

I'll start with today's Rossi website. They say " He sold to everyoneLike many in our generation of hunters, I grew up on the lever-action rifle, and many hunters in northern New England still use lever rifles for hunting deer where the ranges are short and the woods are thick.

Recently, a Rossi Model 92 came to my office, and it impressed me as a no-nonsense, all-weather hunting tool for the elusive whitetail in appropriate calibers—or for spending time at the range for Cowboy Action or just recreational shooting in cases like the. Rossi offers 17 types of lever actions—large loops, blued guns, color case-hardened guns, octagon barrels, plain barrels. This particular lever action has a stainless inch barrel, polished to a satin finish.

The right-side loading port is a bit on the small size, and I would suggest they make this a little bigger—especially on guns chambered for the bulkier. Topside you have the traditional twin locking bolts, followed by a safety lever forward of the hammer and basically between these lugs.

Simply rotate the lever either way to place the gun on Safe or Fire. Future versions of the 92 will not feature this safety lever, but those currently on dealer shelves do have it. Additionally, you have a half-cock hammer position, which to me is a great way to carry the gun in the woods—one in the chamber, hammer on half-cock.

For additional safety at home, Rossi has installed the Taurus Security System—which Rossi uses under license from Taurus—on the rear of the hammer. Inserting the supplied special tool allows you to turn this mechanism, allowing a small stud to back out and prevent the hammer from being cocked.

Turning it back the other way makes it go back into the hammer, allowing the hammer to operate normally.

The lever opening is large enough for three fingers of the shooting hand, the action is smooth for a gun in its price range, and it's quick to respond to your hand. There is a bit of resistance at the end of the throw, letting you know the receiver locking lugs are in place and the bolt is fully forward. Trigger pull on the gun is 4. Just forward of the receiver is a buckhorn leaf sight with a notch that most shooters—even the veterans—will be comfortable with.

Up front is a blade sight complete with a gold bead. The front sight is adjustable for windage via drift, the rear for elevation via a traditional notched sliding ramp. There is a barrel band just short of the muzzle, and a stainless fore-end band is located just inches from fore-end tip.

Length of pull is only It's a little short, but then again, depending on how you'll be using the rifle, this won't be a problem. For example, with a heavy hunting or winter range jacket, this length will probably satisfy the majority of shooters. It's a straight stock—no pistol grip—and there likewise is no checkering.

It's finished in a satin patina. The gun comes without sling swivels, but for many lever-gun fans the accepted practice is to just grab the rifle by the receiver and have at it. The nicely proportioned receiver on this Rossi has about a six-inch girth, making it perfect for this.

Besides, guns like my sample are going to spend their time at the range rather than in the field, and sling swivels aren't a big deal. I found the gun fun to shoot, and the only fault was loading the gun through the cartridge gate. As I mentioned, I think Rossi could make it just a little larger—as well as smoothing off the edges. Then you really would have something. Ejection was excellent, though, and spent cartridges went straight up into the air.

Group averages were right up where I would expect from a short-barreled, open-sighted gun at 25 yards. I find the Rossi Model 92 a blast to have in the field and shoot. It has a reasonable price point, makes a nice appearance at your side and can take you back to the days when men were winning the West and the lever action was the gun to have.
