Absolutely love this gun! It is very accurate and the lever is plenty smooth. It continues to get smoother with use. I debated between this and the 20 inch version, but am glad I got this one. The compact size is excellent. I can carry it around down to my side and it not even drag the ground. The bluing is ok and the wood is pretty average. It is kind of dull and could use refinishing, as most people have said. However, I don't mind and it's exactly what I expected for the price. The safety at the top also isn't that big a deal. I may eventually change it out but see no reason that you would have to. As for ammo, I have shot 357s and 38s, FMJ, LSWC, HPs with no problems at all. I have even slow cycled it plenty and it is tough to get it to jam then. I have plenty of guns but this has become one of my favorites for sure!

I picked up my rossi 92 with the 16" barrel today. I wasn't sure what to expect. The fit and finish while not spectacular is very adequate. It looks nice. I was very happy that both .38's and .357's loaded chambered and ejected with no problems. The trigger pull was not bad at all and the action was reasonably smooth and is now better since I have racked it a couple of hundred times while sitting in my lazy boy. The sights are on straight. The wind was blowing about 30 miles a hour and all I had is some old .38 hand loads but I shot it anyway. I wouldn't have won any shooting matches today but it went bang every time. I am sure accuracy will come when I play with my loads. Nice gun.

Buds was good to deal with. The FFL was not available for immediate shipping. Buds delayed until the requested date. Free ship and on time. I will use Buds next time.
I took the Rossi to the range right out of the box. I cycled the action 100 times or so the first night before using it with ammo. I used two brands of 38 special ammo Herters and American Eagle. One was a round nose, and the other flat. Both loaded fine. The flats were a tiny bit harder to load, but not much. I was amazed how quite and recoilless it was to fire. 25 yards is the max distance I shot. My eyes were the only limiting factor in accuracy (age). This is the first lever action I have tried. It is a blast. Get one. I got the 38/357 because of the ammo cost and I have no need for a larger caliber. Non of the negative things I have read (rough action, hard to load, etc...) are issues and in fact it operates just fine. If I didn't say so already, I will now, get one.

I have never owned a lever action and I did not shoot this yet. With that being said....I have read all the bad things about this rossi/model and I must say that I'm very happy with my purchase. The fit and finish is great, the wood is nice, the bluing is beautiful, the sights are straight on barrel, the action is smooth/slick. I cycled only 2 types of ammo(only ammo available to me now) and as long as the cartridge lifter lifts the the cartridge it will feed. 38 sp with a truncated cone(from local reloader@.19cents ea) and .357 winchester 110grn jhp is what I fed it and I can feed into chamber really slow and they will feed. I can see where they say to cycle the action forcefully for it to work, but this one not so much. If cycled too slow/soft, the crtg lifter sometimes won't lift round. But I just pull lever back a little and forward a little faster and the lifter works good. I wish I could show you just how soft and slow I can cycle rounds through only to prove the feed ability. I will update as I try other bullet types. I hope this helps with your choice to buy or not to buy. My transaction through BUDS and My ffl JJA armory was great and hassle free, I would recommend BUDS and JJA armory for all your purchases.

After reading a number of negative reviews on Rossi model 92 carbines and rifles on this site, I chose to order a 16" carbine in .38/.357 caliber anyway. I simply resolved to inspect it carefully upon arrival, as Bud's reminds us all to do, and put my money down. The gun arrived at my local FFL dealer in a timely fashion, as is usual for Bud's. I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised with the appearance and function of this quality firearm.

Remember: This rifle is not a Browning. It is not finished to Browning standards, and it did not cost anywhere near what the Browning does. It is a working man's tool. The wood, while plain, is attractively matt finished and well fitted, with no large gaps or mismatches where metal meets woodwork. The metal is well blued/blackened, with no scratches or uneven coloring. The sights are straight and strongly attached. The bolt mounted safety is very small and unobtrusive, functioning as a hammer block. It is very simple to use. The action is smooth and easy, and the trigger pull shows no creep or roughness. Loading through the loading gate took a minute to get a feeling for, as the ammunition must be maneuvered correctly, with a down-and-in curving motion at the back of the shell, while pushing forward into the tube magazine. No sharp edges, no pinches, no problems loading the full complement of eight shells into the magazine. I did not find the loading gate to be too stiff to manage easily. So far, so very good!

Cycling the action with both .38 special 125-grain SJHP shells and 158 grain FMJ flat point shells was smooth and consistent, with no hangups or hitches at all. Ejection was similarly effective; positive, yet not too forceful. This ensures the brass will land consistently close at hand and in an area to the shooter's right, requiring no special efforts to locate and gather up later. The ammunition showed no scratching or damage whatever after cycling through the action. (Thanks to my FFL dealer for allowing me to test this function at the store with live ammo.)

I accepted the transfer with no second thoughts, laid my money down for the FFL transfer fee, and went home happy. I look forward to sighting in and shooting this little rifle very soon.

I like the fact that the 1-in-30 rate of twist in the barrel is just about ideal for stabilizing a 125-grain bullet, as I want to be able to shoot the same ammunition in my Smith & Wesson Model 10 (.38) as I do in my Rossi Model 92 (.38/.357) when necessary. I like the fact that this Rossi is not touchy at all about feeding the .38 factory rounds. I have not yet tested it with .357 ammunition, but there is no reason to assume there will be any more problem with that than there was with the .38s.

Thanks to Buds Gun Shop for a professional execution of this transaction, as usual, and thanks to Rossi for producing a good firearm - and a good value in these times of inflated pricing on firearms and ammunition alike. Potential buyers: Be realistic in your expectations, and order with confidence. You won't be disappointed!
