    I got a Levergun!

    Did some traveling for work today and was in the general area of a Gun Shop I've wanted to check out for a while, so I stopped there before heading back to the office. Wasn't planning to buy any weapons, just wanted to browse their selection. That plan went out the window and I walked out with this...

    20140513_162701[1].jpg20140513_162339[1].jpg

    Rossi 92 in 44Mag. Stainless finish, 24in Octagon barrel.




    Not crazy about the sights on it. Probably going to replace the front wight with a Fiber Optic or a plain blade. The rear will come off and be replaced with an adjustable peep sight that replaces the generic safety in the bolt. I was planning to get a 45-70 before deer season, but I saw this thing and couldn't say no to the deal I got. I won't be able to get into reloading any time soon, so going with the .44 made more sense. Besides, it gives me an excuse to get a revolver to go along with the rifle.

    I've been giving lever guns a long hard look - .357 style. They are harder to get your hands on than you might think!

    Please let me know how that Rossi shoots!

    Nice, I ordered the Rossi 20 inch in 45 LC. Should be arriving today.

    Congrats on your purchase.

    I love lever guns and finally bought one to go with my Colt SAA revolver. However, after pinching the skin of my hand so bad that it bleed, I sold it and got an AR. It requires practice to shoot a lever gun fast. I have often watched guys forget to pump their shotgun or work their lever during the stress of first time competition, so practice under a little stress to get used to it. I still may buy one and wear a glove when I shoot it. :)

    Fine looking weapon. Agree re a rear peep sight. I wonder if they offer peep sights in different MOAs, where one can flip them to switch from CQB, to long distance. Like on the ARs, and M-16s?

    Very nice ! I have the Marlin in .44 Magnum. Took plenty coyotes, snakes, and other vermin with it back in my cowboying days. Carried in a scabbard on my saddle. Very practical rifle you got there. I would venture to say that it would take anything on thus continent. Or load it down with .44 specials and plink away !!

    A .30-30 lever-action Glenfield (Marlin) is the only firearm I've sold that I kind of wish I hadn't. Not a full regret, just a "Maybe should have kept it."

    Lol. I hear you. I had a Montgomery Wards Glenfield/Marlin, too. And feel the same way about it.

    Not sorry I sold it, but wouldnt mind having it back, either.

    Nice find! A lever action .44 mag is a very versatile rifle to own! I love my Ruger lever action 96/44! Good luck!

    Nice find. That would go great with my stainless Ruger Vaquero in 44 Mag. Now I need to find one.
