Default Rossi 92 357 mag carbines

Where are all the Rossi 92 357 mag carbines? See several 44 mag and 45 Colt advertised but no 357's. Still in production? Last new one I saw was priced at $500.00, good price? If any of you have experience with the 357's I would appreciate hearing your opinions. Thanks.

I'd guess most who have them aren't selling. I got one a few years ago and while I don't shoot it often, I don't forsee getting rid of it. Seems like a really good backup. There are guns and other equipment that seem to fit that catagory. Not used all the time, but not for sale either.

I got one a couple years ago. It hung on the wall at the local ffl with a $550 price tag for over a year. I told the man with a grin "you've had that gun hanging there too long". Got it for $450 otd. The action is very smooth ... didn't need any "slicking up". Seems to be quite accurate with any ammo, factory and reloads. I just need to put a recoil pad on it to give more lop for my long arms. Bottom line ... I love it!

i've read where other folks were having trouble finding Rossi m92 357 rifles....the factory was moving or upgrading and the plan was that 357 rifles would be back in production by this fall....fwiw....Mike

A good friend has had one quite some years, it is slick & smooth, no bobbles with 357Mag or Spl cast bullet handloads and surprisingly accurate even at distance.
His is NOT for sale either .

Love my 16" 357 Rossi 92...only a few issues with them: Hate the slick, curved butt plate...changed it out with a flat profile stock. Incredibly sharp edges around the feeding ramp (3 nieces/nephews cut their fingers loading it), sights were awful...changed those out with a peep sight as a replacement for the goofy top safety lever and there was no way to mount a sling from the factory to the front barrel band like the Marlin lever guns....mounted the rear stud and used a magazine tube attachment for the front. Accuracy is very good with 38 specials and 357 magnum and it never fails to feed. I can't give that same reliability compliment about my Marlin 1894c. Regardless, I won't be getting rid of my M92 either.

I looked at a blued carbine a few years ago and it had a really slick action. Shoulda bought it I guess.
Saw a stainless 20" at another place and it felt like it needed a lot of breaking in. The stainless must be harder to machine.

Wallyworld had a .45 rifle in stock last time I looked. But the .357 would be my choice too.

Might just have to get a youth model 336 until I can find another 16" 92.

I've got two of them, technically one is my son's - early pre-safety 20" blued, and an EMF Hartford Saddle Ring with case (pickled) frame and a boyds flat butt stock, also 20" blued. Not only are they reliable and accurate, they're fun! Everybody loves shooting them ... and its a decent 100yd hunting, woods walking rifle. I got to tote a 16" once, I like the balance on the 20", but a 16" 44 might make a nice woods packing rifle.

Thanks for the observations. Finally found a R92 in 357mag and 16" bbl. Won an auction NIB for under $500 (buy it now price).
I'm satisfied!
