    Rossi 92.357 Mag

    Last week I bought Rossi 92 in .357 Mag/.38 Spc with a 20" barrel, but it was a difficult decision. A few weeks ago Croatian Hunting Association got to their store hundreds of rifles, mainly from police seizure and for a very good price.
    Among other guns, there was a dozen of Rossi 92, a dozen of Winchester 94 and half a dozen Marlin 336.
    The Winchester 94 and Marlin were all in 30-30 cal. except one Winchester in .44 Magnum.
    All Rossi 92 were .38 Spc/.357 Mag.
    I was there in their store a few days in a row, compared, studied... like a kid in a candy store
    They were all in very good condition, and the price was the same for all, about $370.
    I know the Winchester is better made and more expensive, but I already have 357/38 reloading kit, and here the cheapest round of 30-30 Winchester is about $1.50, and I'm not a hunter.
    So I finally decided to take Rossi 92. The rifle is in very good condition, a little bit stiff, but it shoot well.
    I slicked it up with the help of some YouTube videos, and now it's a sweet little carbine
    By the way, I also bought Zastava M70 in 8x57. It was cheap, about $150.

    If it's the older Rossi 92, those are pretty good rifles. What Caleb said about the pictures.

    I own a no manual safety Rossi 357/38 lever gun myself [ the older models didn't have that funky safety lever on top of the receiver ]. After Brazil/Taurus acquired Rossi and created Braztech [ sp] there was a period of where QC was poor, and the guns suffered in reputation for it.

    I picked mine up for 300.00 which was what we traded into it for at the shop. It shoots 357 158's reliably, haven't nor will put 38's through it [ which on many levers can be problematic due to the cartridge carrier being set for 357's ].

    It's a mid to late 70's Rossi Puma, exactly the same as mine. Recorded serial numbers are nearly non existent from Rossi, now Braztech.

    Enjoy that puppy, it's a well made 92 in that era.
