    got my .44 magnum today

  2. CallawayKen on November 16, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    I will probably let the next owner clean it!

    The type of washer shown in the link below is the answer to the excessive countersink in the tang.. It also stops the screw backing out under recoil.

    Very well done and thorough video. Thank you. Unfortunately, even with volume on max you could hardly be heard. Volume was better at the beginning as well as at the end, but during all disassembly and reassembly your voice was barely audible. I recently purchased an R92 in .45LC and will be taking it out to the desert tomorrow. Thanks again…

    I didn’t get an alert on this video, watched today’s video first. Boy , is the Rossi alot more harder to work on compared to the Marlin, or at least it looks like it. I don’t have one.

    George, thanks for the vids, you’re the first gun video guy I watch because all that tactical black rifle stuff is boorish. You feature interesting arms that have craftsmanship, like a collector, historian or gunsmith would appreciate.

    While you are covering the levers, could you do an inverted angle function comparison between the designs? I would like to see if the 92 will load upside down.
    And I would like an opinion on Henry’s adoption of dual loading options of models having both side gate and tube cutout?

  7. Mark Walker on November 16, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Great video! If you want more practice with a different Rossi R92, I would be happy to run mine over to you and let you clean it…just for scientific discovery of course. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    high quality video. thanks!

  10. Flint Richards on November 16, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Good morning and thanks for that video good information and will help when I git one of those rifles.

  11. Paul Cupach on November 16, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Great video. The struggle is real with some guns and it looks like this one has its own personality. You did a great job showcasing what an owner can expect when caring for the gun. This is exactly the type of videos people look for…You id’d an issue and showed how to solve the problem.

  12. jmjnjames on November 16, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    This was a great video. Just broke mine down and did a deep clean and oil on it. Only thing I would note is to make sure you have a very strong paperclip to pin the spring. Mine snapped and led to a neat little adventure. I ended up using a small punch to pin the spring. Thanks for the breakdown video! Action is much smoother now.

  13. Hold my coffee on November 16, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Just watched the Henry video. I also watched this one. And I’ll watch the next 40 or so…

  14. Pat Duffy on November 16, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Followed it so far but the lower tang is stuck fast

  15. commonconservative on November 16, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    there is a very un-talked about hammer-lock and tamper-proof tool that will lockup and render your gun inoperable if used and the action is cycled

  16. Kerny PNP on November 16, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    Deal breaker. You have to do this everytime you fire this gun?

  17. Tom White on November 16, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    Great video I just purchased two of these in December 2020 manufactured in 2020 and that screw you pointed out no longer sticks out as shown.

  18. HomeGuardian43 on November 16, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    i have just picked up a second hand rossi 357/38s , not sure how to find the date ,, it has no saftey , markings are amadeo rossi sa on sadle ring side ,,loading gate side has marking 38spi-357mag made in brazil..
    Serial no K012- – – .. Took it to the range today and had alot of trouble loading 38special and 357mag was a little better but still a couple of fail to load ,, seems like they are not being lifted up to meet the bolt and pushed into the chamber ? any thoughts ,, im going to take it apart now to have a look , if not off to the gunsmith.. Thanks for the videos mate from Australia

  19. In Gratitude I Am on November 16, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    That was very helpful, George. I’m almost exhausted watching you work on that carbine. Time for a well deserved beer! While Winchesters can handle really stout loads compared to Marlins, there’s something to be said for the simplicity of a Marlin. I am, after all, a simple minded man. Cheers!

  20. Jeannie Heard on November 16, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    I got a good deal on a used R92 with a Marbles peep sight on the tang. I didn’t want that sight and proceeded to remove it. Discovered that a replacement tang screw was not threaded like the tang screw that held the Marbles sight in place. So I removed the tang sight and filed down the odd tang screw so it wouldn’t stick out the bottom of the stock. Polished that and wiped it with a Magic marker. The Marbles sight had a forward tang screw which I discovered was very hardened blued steel. I could not saw a screwdriver slot in the tip or shorten it. So, I dug into my computer desk drawer ( right below where I am typing) and found a soft steel machine screw of the right diameter, thread and pitch. I sawed a screwdriver slot in the tip and sawed the shank–head included– in half. Had to don a high-powered magnifying binocular gizmo to be able the start the "screw" or grub screw in place. Pounded into position, using a brass door hinge pin and ball peen hammer, a ramp buck horn sight. Done Stamped on this .357 was Puma.

    Thanks for this demo, it helped me a lot.

  22. Terry Schiller on November 16, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Great video George! You really are awesome at showing all the points and tricks to disassemble and reassemble a little easier! Very much appreciated. Thanks for your hard work and time!

  23. Charlie King on November 16, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    very helpful, and I learned the way to clean these rifles.
    Fine job, thank you

  24. Robert Roosa on November 16, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Fantastic video — thanks. My rifle is similar to yours in that it looks great, but there are some quality control issues. My sight dovetails and barrel taps were cut at an angle, almost like the barrel rotated a bit before they cut it. Also agree that it’s still a great gun for the money.

  25. Wild Tex on November 16, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Rossi sure makes some good guns.

  26. Ken just ken on November 16, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Thank you for the video I bought a r92 Rossi 357 it took me six months to find one finally got one

  27. TBull Cajunbreadmaker on November 16, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    George, I have a Rossi just like the rifle you have there. I have learned that using some small tye-wraps to hold the trigger it makes it much easier to put it back together.and you just take a small set of diagonal cutters to cut the tye-wrap and release the trigger when finished. I use small tye-wraps on a lot of parts to eep them in the position I need them before discarding them.

  28. Ben German on November 16, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    That’s worse than the 80 series crap in my sig. Cant be hungover for that job!

  29. Paul Sherrod on November 16, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Put a nice washer under it

  30. Nick J on November 16, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    That lower tang screw I would have to tend to,
    my OCD would not allow that ๐Ÿ™‚ Makes me glad
    I have two Marlins !

  31. Ken Lambeth on November 16, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Interesting video. I like your bench block by the way.

  32. Populus Tremula on November 16, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Great video. I used this to take apart and reassemble my new M92. Here’s an additional tip: Do NOT use a standard paper clip to hold the hammer spring on its shaft. The spring is strong enough to completely bend back the paper clip along the shaft and come to complete relaxation extending beyond the shaft. If this happens take a 1/4 inch thick piece of hardwood an inch or so wide by at least 4 inches long and drill a hole just slightly bigger than the shaft diameter about an inch from one end. Clamp the wood to a bench or table with the hole overhanging the table. Clip the flimsy paper clip that is in the hole and remove it. Have a heavy duty paper clip or other kind of pin that will fit the capture hole ready to go. Line the extended spring with the shaft inside of it over the hole and press down compressing the spring until the shaft protrudes through the hole in the wood at which time you insert the new paper clip or pin through the capture hole. Break or saw the wood away and now you’re back to having a compressed and captured spring. I know this works because it happened to me while using this video and it’s what I came up with.

  33. PontificusRex on November 16, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Thanks a lot. The video i was using was driving me crazy, as that guy had zero issues pulling out the lugs while mine were stuck fast. You’ve saved my sanity (what’s left of it)!.

  34. Frank Wrogg on November 16, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Well done, very clearly demonstrates the process!

  35. Liberty & Freedom on November 16, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    You Tube is about to pull a Fox News and crash as they loose those whom enjoy your videos and the many that they may deem against their socialist agenda.

  36. Daniel Bosch on November 16, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    This a great video,,for my Rossi R 92,in 44,,

  37. Dennis Craker on November 16, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Thank you George, after watching your video i found it very easy to disassemble, clean and reassemble my two new Rossi’s 357/44 magnums. I’ve now watched most of your videos and appreciate the knowledge experience and information you pass on in your presentations which as the comment below says "outstanding" thank you again from Australia

  38. Josh H on November 16, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    Fantastic video!! ๐Ÿ“น ๐Ÿ‘

  39. Carl Love on November 16, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    What a great video. Thank you so much for taking the time to record and post this for all of your viewers.

  40. Texas Farmer on November 16, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    ++Tuesday morning= another great video from Target Suite. Thanks, George.

  41. Rooster on November 16, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    It is a shame that YouTube put the squelch on this episode ๐Ÿ™

  42. seekYahusha on November 16, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Awesome video! Love my r92! Now I can disassemble it and clean it… put about 400 rounds through it, trying to break it in before I clean it… thoroughly impressed with this rifle. Extremely accurate out the box. Hitting steel at 300 yards with buckhorn sites!! Very amazing rifle for the cost! It smooths out, just takes about 200 rounds!! Mine was so stiff haha. Thank you sir! Have a blessed day!

  43. Johannes van Hoek on November 16, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Great video and much appreciated, Looks like the other lever action rifleโ€™s are a little easier to disassemble for cleaning purposes and I think especially the Marlin 336 and the 94 ,,, Iโ€™ll put this video in my archives for down the road when I disassemble my Rossi rifle , have a great day George๐Ÿ‘

  44. Leverguns 50 on November 16, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    This is gonna be good, good job brother

  45. HellsWells 91 on November 16, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    I just wanted to let you know this video was a great help. I tore mine down to change that ridiculous ejector spring and my rifle was a pain like the one you have here. Thanks bud. And keep em coming I enjoy all of your videos!

  46. m2gja m1 on November 16, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Well done George I’m will always be skidish with lever rifles. Assembly and disassembly. It’s ok on the Marlin taking the lever and bolt out to clean the barrel and bolt. Any further it’s a chore for me anyway. That’s why I like military rifles they make it easy. Good job my friend!!

  47. Roy Seifert on November 16, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Speaking of quality, my Rossi R92C stainless steel .44 magnum made by CBC has blued steel screws, but the heads were polished to simulate stainless steel! Just curious, have you had a chance to slug the barrel on that 92? I always enjoy watching your videos George.

  48. Gotell Yomamma on November 16, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Thanks George, you saved me. I was getting really frustrated with reassembling my 92. I took the bolt out so I could do a chamber cast to get bore diameter. Turned out to be .3575". Mine had all the gotchas that you mentioned.

  49. Jason Selvaggi on November 16, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Is that the original front sight, or was a taller front sight added after the Marbles Bullseye rear sight was installed? Thanks for excellent videos.
