Rossi RH92-51121 R92 Ranch Hand 6+1 357MAG 12"
by Stuart S Date Added: Monday 23 January, 2012
This was my first order through Bud's and has been my best firearm purchasing experience yet. It was 3-workdays between the moment I hit 'purchase' and the moment I picked up the Ranch Hand from my local FFL dealer. The gun itself is amazing. I didn't grow up with westerns and am generally more partial to cyberpunk, but the lever-action is just too freaking cool and really fun to shoot. Another great feature is it's legally a pistol; I'm able to use it at any indoor pistol range and carry it under the same guidelines as the rest of my CCWs... though it's way to big for a person of my size to actually conceal carry .

I spent a few days deliberation between 38sp/357mag or 44mag. After taking this version to the range, I'm glad I picked the smaller caliber. It has no shortage of power with a hot 357 round and the recoil is exactly right for a pleasurable target shooting experience. The recoil with 38 special is almost nothing, and the cheaper ammo lets me plink for a while.

I read some reviews elsewhere that folks had trouble with 357mag rounds refusing to feed; I had no problems with any of variation of 38 special or 357 mag. Where the wood edges meet metal is a little rough, but the wood finish itself is nice.

The only issues I've noticed so far are:
1) Even with the rear sight in the lowest position possible, it shoots pretty high -- If I actually start to care about where my bullets go, I'll have someone take a look at that.
2) The safety toggle feels cheap and wobbly -- I never thought I'd say this about a safety... but this particular gun would be better without it. I usually just leave it set to fire.
3) The loading gate is a little fickle -- If you don't get a round in all the way with your finger, or the lever isn't all the way seated, it can be hard to cycle or top-off. This is somewhat expected.
4) Rossi's web site is ambiguous about their warranties -- I believe this is covered for 1-year, but it could be lifetime... it's just that ambiguous!
