    Great 👍🏼 video bud

    Looks like a pretty nice example of a Rossi. Glad to see they improved their fit and finish. It’s a much better value than the Japanese Winchester.

    I have it in 44 magnum. Absolutely love it.



  4. Cal on November 21, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    You are right. The fault is with the too-short .38 Special cartridge. Ran into the same problem. Cured it simply by going to a longer cartridge overall length. Mine still operates best when running .357 cartridges, though.

    Good knowledge, but less talking would be much nicer!



  6. Mark Miller on November 21, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    there is nothing wrong with a safety,you dont have to use it but its always good too have.

    I love those Rossi’s

    Here from a Australian

    I used to have a Rossi .357 Puma. A model 92 with the saddle ring. I called it my pet because it was like a good dog and went everywhere on the ranch with me and then some. I hand loaded for it and anything was a head shot within 100 yards. I wore it out. Since I love the .357 mag. caliber as much as I do I bought a Ruger M77/357. I also had a Puma .44 mag. but wasn’t as fond of it cuz the barrel was to thin and heated very fast then started throwing wild shots.

    I was considering the Rossi at first but I heard about the problem of jamming so I went with the Henry Big Boy. Both great guns.

    Finally picked up my R92 last Monday. Very impressed with its condition considering it’s second-hand. Bore is excellent as is the wood to metal finish. Curiously it has, on the rear right of the 20" octagonal barrel "Made in Brazil by Taurus", but on the left rear side of the barrel it’s stamped "Rossi .38 spec – .356 Magnum".
    I love the classic ‘old school’ look of lever guns so I’m going to remove the semi-buckhorn sights and install a set of Skinner ladder sights and, to save my 70 year old knuckles, a leather lever wrap.
    I got to shoot it for the first time last Wednesday and, at 25m it was printing 1.5 to 2" groups all morning..!! Shame I can’t share a photo with you as my R92 is so very different from all the other models I have seen in that it has the end cap on the fore-end – all I have seen are 24" barrelled rifles with this.
    I shot ‘Cowboy’ load .357’s at the range but I did single load 10 .38 round nose I had for my revolver. It was like shooting a .22..!! Well I am one extremely happy bunny here, more so because watching your Rossi videos gave me a clear heads-up on what to look for and, importantly, how to correct any problems. Many thanks for your efforts.

    Just like mine 🥰 Your stock is indeed more beautiful though, but still don’t be afraid to knick it up a bit. A little honest wear will make it look well loved.



  12. Factory Bear on November 21, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    So upon purchasing this at the height of the guns and ammo crisis around August 2020, in rural Upstate New York, my ultimate mission was to obtain ammo for it and choices were slim, but I did find some obscure stuff that was still floating around local mom and pops, and at a Dick’s Sporting Goods pretty far away from me in Kingston NY, if in remember correctly. Ended up with some fmj Magtech 158 grain flat noses rounds made in Brazil from a local shop, and at the far away Dick’s, I found my favorite.38 Special for it. The 158 grain Flat Nosed Cowboy Load. Pure unjacketed lead in a brass case made by Winchester. They’re rated at around 8 or 9 hundred fps our of a handgun, and a bit faster out of a 20 inch barrel Rossi I would imagine. Only ended up being allowed to buy two boxes at some ridiculous sum of around 2 bucks a round, and so I used them sparingly. Shot only ten rounds of it maybe but it was phenomenal. I highly recommend a box of that stuff fore anyone’s Rossi if they ever come across it. It’s exceptional stuff. Probably packs enough of a wallop for whitetails at 40 or 50 yards.



  13. J D on November 21, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Having a time figuring out do I want the rossi 92 in 357 or a henry big boy, decisions decisions 🤔 price wise I am leaning to the rossi, thanks for posting this video but iam still undecided.



  14. Chris Trong on November 21, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    This is an amazing rifle. My wife and kids got me one last year at this time for a birthday gift. I have had no problem. It is such a joy to shoot. Good review.



  15. Michael Clairforet on November 21, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    I’d like to see a vid on the Rossi 22WMR and how good it is, and accurate.



  16. Fernando Nando on November 21, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    Excelente Rossi



  17. Thomas McCaffrey on November 21, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    You put me to sleep with that cow calling nice nap. Ready to shoot now.



  18. pollywollydo on November 21, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    I gave up on 38sp’ years back, other wise it’s still my favourite riffle even after over 30 years. ( bought in preference to a similar Marlin back then ). 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🇺🇸🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿. P.S. fed OK but never as accurate .



  19. georgiaridgerunner 79 on November 21, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Just passing through but man im not one of those guys that bashes a recreation of a historic gun
    Because of a safety i actually appreciate a safety on a gun
    And am hoping to buy one



  20. Tony Hodges on November 21, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    I finally found one of these in .357 last year and it is a great looking and accurate rifle. I have over 1,000 rounds through it and it cycles anything I stuff in it. Only complaint is the wood is a bit soft. Walnut would have been a better choice than mahogany in my opinion. I give it 4.5 stars because of this but this is the gun that always goes with me. Another amazing timeless John Browning design!



  21. Jack Beighle on November 21, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Looks like a very nice and smooth operating gun. I may have to consider buying it. Also looks fun to shoot…Thank you for showing and educating me.



  22. David Ramos on November 21, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    The 38 special has to be loaded through the tube



  23. Lifted_Above on November 21, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    I rode my motorcycle over Rocky Mountain National Park back in 2013. What a fantastic place that is. Thanks for sharing, brings back memories. Why does Pedersoli, Uberti, and Chiappa import 1886 rifles into the USA without manual safety mechanisms? Seems Rossi and Miroku can’t get away from that.



  24. Terrell Austin on November 21, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    I have had several Rossi Pumas a d 1990’s imports too but no longer I liked those early “Puma” models



  25. Chris Blake on November 21, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    My 44 ranch hand is awesome



  26. traumajock on November 21, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    There’s a polished stainless one I saw in a shop a week ago. They want 800. I’m stinkin’ about it.



  27. Simon on November 21, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    Is not better filling that holding a new rifle on your hands 👍



  28. CharlyRomeo on November 21, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    The Win short rifle does not have the forend band.



  29. Jeremiah Freeman on November 21, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    damn it i want one. but the only ones in my area are overpriced as shit. they want like 799 for a gun that msrp’s for 529



  30. Walter Springer on November 21, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    I know it’s not dramatic, but I would like to see how tight a group of six shots can be at 50yds from a rest. Hitting gongs or bowling pins at 50 feet doesn’t tell me much.



  31. Thomas Raithel on November 21, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Excellent – thanks



  32. Charles Smith on November 21, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    I am looking for the lever action stainless steelRossi 357 magnum,TN.



  33. Louisiana Dub on November 21, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    I have the 30-30 and .357 flavors in the Marlins. I’ve owned them since the 80’s. What pushed me to Marlin is the flat top receiver. Optic friendly. I love’em. I should have picked up the .44 to have the set.



  34. Tom Cowell on November 21, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    Love your review of the Rossi R92 .357. I was planning on getting one, new, for my 70th birthday but when I make enquiries I was informed that there will be no Rossi rifles imported into Great Britain for the next TWO YEARS..!!
    So.. I’m waiting for a well looked after R92 to arrive that I got second-hand for a very good price. It will be, like yours, in .357 and it has a 20" octagonal barrel. Interestingly it is also fitted with an end cap on the fore-end. I have only seen these on the 24" barrel models..!!?? I had, 12 years or so ago, a Winchester 94AE which was nice, but you had to be gentle with it or run the risk of breaking the shell lifter. I imagine the Rossi will be a little more robust than that. Nevertheless it’s the one rifle I wish I’d kept. There is just something so cool about lever guns.
    Keep the videos coming, they are excellent and extremely informative.



  35. D Phillips on November 21, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Rossi has surely improved! Beautiful lever.



  36. chad chad on November 21, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Great video! Waiting for my Rossi Black R92 in 16.5” barrel to arrive!



  37. jwgbmp40 on November 21, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Always enjoy, especially all the different levers you use..



  38. Factory Bear on November 21, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    I can’t believe I missed this video. Glad you finally scored one. Amazing rifle. Will be trying it out open sights on whitetails starting this month



  39. Mark Chester on November 21, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    It looks like Rossi has got it’s act together as many of the early ones had very poor wood/metal finish. Looking forward to seeing if the loading gate is still razor sharp or whether that’s been taken care of too. Well that looks good.
    Glad you coped with lever, pity you insist on carbean! 😀😀



  40. Kevin Collier on November 21, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    My Rossi 92 hated any 38 Specials loaded with less than 140 grains, loved 158 grain SWC or RNFP.



  41. Dermot Shaw on November 21, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Really like the rossi, the side load is better than the tube load on the Winchester. Im actually looking at a stainless version for €950/$1100 here in Ireland but i dont have enough savings at the moment



  42. WastedTalent on November 21, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    I thought my AR was fun to shoot, this rifle quickly became my favorite.



  43. Charles Souza on November 21, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    I currently have 2 Rossi R92 rifles, a Rossi Trifecta rifle with three interchangeable barrels and a .357 Taurus revolver. I have no complaints about any of them. Sorry for you who have had trouble with these Brazilian brands (actually, the same company). My stainless R92 in .38/.357 Magnum really rocks. It’s also a beautiful firearms!y



  44. SubTerra Sailor on November 21, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    I had a lot of wad cutter .38 target loads… And yes they are too short to load right. You can see them actually fly but they have to be loaded singly. FUN!!!



  45. LOREN LIEDER on November 21, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    Glad you got to see the Rocky Mtn National Park. It is one of natures wonders for sure. I live a bout 40 miles from there I go up there on my Harley from time to time.



  46. Rob Aldridge on November 21, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    I have a Rossi 357 24" oct. barreled rifle, changed out ALL the springs and smoothed her up, She runs great now. awesome 150 yard deer rifle..



  47. J D on November 21, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    I’m so obsessed with my brass, I have a Caldwell brass catcher on my lever guns. 😂



  48. vedQ5TV video on November 21, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Nice gun I will get one 👍



  49. Rich Weatherly on November 21, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Thanks for your post on the Rossi R92. I’ve had mine for about 5 years and love it. This is one of my favorite rifles. Mine is like yours but with a 20". Rocky Mountain National Park is a favorite place of mine to visit.



  50. Sulaco2 on November 21, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Three years ago I had the choice between a .357 Rossi lever action in blued steel OR stainless steel. I took the blued version (should have bought both!) for its classic look. Often wondered if I should revisit that decision but mine has never balked at the range .38 or .357. Also replaced the plastic cartridge follower and blue steel spring with a metal follower and SS spring.
