[5 of 5 Stars!]This rifle now has around 150-200 rounds thru it; Loaded with 240 grain everglades ammo soft tip (.431) , cci 350 primers and 23.5 grains of H110, as well as, 200 grain Nosler HP (.429), cci 350 primers and 27.7 grains of H110. Action was gritty at first, and loading gate stiff; however, after working it these, issues have all but disappeared. There are some cosmetic issues, as expected. The front sight is thick and makes grouping shots difficult at 50yards. Came missing brass bead. (I plan on replacing sights, magazine follower, and plugins the bolt safety) Found surface rust on lever. I love this thing!!! The felt recoil is dramatic and has caused two "tough" guys to comment that there shoulders remembered the experience for several days after shooting 16 rounds of those smoking 200 grain loads.... Also, the firing pin hits hard, causing a pinhole in the center of the strike of around 3 in 10 rounds fired, which may be why I have seen people discuss installing a lighter trigger spring? I don't think this is caused by over pressure, as the overall condition of the fired primers are consistent over both the afore mentioned loads.

[5 of 5 Stars!]Excellent lever gun. The recoil is quite manageable. The accuracy is more than I could ask for, seriously. The accuracy of this rifle out the box is stellar. It's a ton of fun to shoot. Rossi 92's rock.
Thanks Buds for offering the three month layaway option, and for getting the rifle to my FFL dealer so promptly. I look forward to doing business with Buds again.Show More Reviews...
