The first one I sent back to factory, would not feed 38 or 357. Did not hear anything for several months so I called. They had trashed the gun, they sent another one to my FFL and it was rough, sat in a chair and worked the action for several days, then started adding ammo. It now feeds 38 and 357 fine.

I did my homework on this one and I knew what I was getting into. The fit and finish were mediocre at best. The wood finish was terrible to non-existent. The ejection spring was throwing brass 8 feet behind me and damaging most of the cases. That being said, I got a copy of Steve\'s Gunz video on the rossi and went to work. I bought a spring kit from brownells, a stainless steel magazine spring and magazine follower from Steve and refinished the stock myself with a deep stain and trueoil from birchwood casey. The end result was a highly accurate, very slick and smooth rifle that ejected my (reloading) brass neatly 1/2 foot to the right of the action. If you don\'t mind the work, these can be great guns and they are a pleasure to shoot and very accurate. If you want a show piece out of the box or don\'t want to put the time into the rifle, I would look elsewhere.

I really like this rifle. It functions well and is a lot of fun to shoot. It's not a Henry or Uberti but it's also not $1000+. Great gun, good price. The fit, finish, and overall quality is quite impressive in my opinion. Now I was a little worried about how well it would cycle 357 rounds b/c I have previously owned an R92 in this caliber and it clearly liked the 38's much more than the 357's. After reading other reviews this seemed like a common problem. However this rifle cycles both perfectly so I'm very pleased about that. Still wouldn't be a huge issue as I plan on shooting 38's mostly anyway. This rifle is very popular and especially in this caliber so I'm glad I jumped on it when I did! Thanks Bud's!

I read many reviews etc. before buying this rifle. Most negative reviews had to do with lever action cycling issues and overall fit and finish. I was ready to tear it down to polish and replace the ejector spring etc. Well Rossi must have been listening because the one I received from Bud's is excellent. Cycled very easily after cleaning right out of the box. Fit and finish is excellent. Either I lucked out and got an exceptional rifle or Rossi has got its act together. Thanks Buds.

Received my new Rossi M92 right on time,. Action was quite smooth, out of the box, and overall workmanship was better than expected. The wood appears to be REAL walnut, and blueing on metal parts is excellent. Took it to the range, and it handled .38 Specials and .357 Magnum loads very well. No hang-ups. It even liked my cowboy action loads. I am very well pleased with this rifle and would suggest, if you're in the market for one; you won't be disappointed. From the muzzle to the butt plate, I cannot find any flaws. Happy shooting, my friend.

I wasn't sure about purchasing a Rossi as I enjoy Marlins or Henrys more, but I'm happy to say that I've been very satisfied with this lever action. The bluing is fantastic and is better than my other rifles, fit and finish is excellent, action is very smooth and not a single hang-up or issue yet with this rifle, but I've only fired about 60-70 rounds so unsure yet as to long term. I'm not a big fan of the old school sights on these, so I'll be looking into aftermarket sights later. Regardless it's not an issue that I'd make it down for. Only real issue is a small scratch I found but honestly it's very minor to me. Great rifle, and I'm glad I tried a Rossi.
