Rossi 357 Magnum Lever Action w/20" Round Stainless Barrel/W
by allan w Date Added: Saturday 09 March, 2013
I purchased this rifle as a tool to beat around in my truck etc, was not willing to spend much money on a 'work' weapon. This was considerably less expensive than all other 357 mag rifles, with the exception of single shots, and even those were only about $150 less than this one. This purchase was a no brainer.

I knew these were considered 'fixer uppers' and it would take some effort to get it operational. Luckily there is a lot of mods on the internet to slick'em'up.

After shortening, grinding or de-tensioning all nine springs it was much sweeter to cycle, but would still jam at least 50% of the time. Further investigation revealed the angle at which the rounds were being pushed into the chamber guaranteed jams. Using a Dremel tool I ground a 'feed ramp' in the lower edge of the chamber, this stopped ALL jams.

The furniture is rough, lightly sanded and stained an unpleasant color with no sealer.

A positive aspect is now I probably know as much about lever action rifles as some gunsmiths!
