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 ].

Here is the last pic of it
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.

Congrats on your new Rossi '92, Tkay. Those are great guns. I've been participating in Cowboy Action Shooting for about 2 years now, an currently use an Uberti 1866 in .44-40 for my lever action rifle, but have always wanted a good little '92. If you ever need a good gunsmith for your Rossi 92, I suggest contacting Steve Young of Steve's Gunz. Steve is the absolute guru of Rossi 92's. Here's his website: https://stevesgunz.com He has many excellent articles and video's on how to keep your '92 running in optimal condition.
