    Rossi 357 lever action carbine - next in line to purchase.

    The beautiful Mrs has OK'd the next gun purchase. I'm 95% convinced that I will get a 357 lever action carbine - most likely a Rossi M92. Here are the reasons.
    1- Lever actions are great fun to shoot.
    2- Currently own a 357 revolver - ammo compatibility.
    3- John Wayne
    4- Defensive weapon when required.
    5- Zombies
    6- Coyotes
    7- Fun to Shoot!


    My FIL owns a 357 Henry - really like except for the tube loading. I prefer the side loading in the Rossi.

    You folks with experience with lever carbines - Do you recommend the 16" or 20" barrel.

    I've read that you don't get any more velocity out of a 20" barrel, may even lose some speed past 16".
    20" - more ammo capacity

    Other things I should consider??

    Longer barrels are generally more accurate and develop higher pressures. Bullet dwell can be dealt with by loading a hotter round. Keep us in the loop. I want a 45 colt in stainless.

    I have the 16inch 357 Magnum Rossi 92. I think it is the perfect length. God Bless

    ...16" would be easier to maneuver with inside if you used it for HD...easier to get into and out of vehicle...you're going to love the .38 capability for plinking...

    A 20 " barrel will increase velocity and be more accurate than a 16" barrel. I shoot a 24" Marlin, which does great for longer distances compared to a 16".... which is no comparison.
