anyone seen a picture of the left side of the new Ranch Hand ,does it have a saddle ring? I was thinking of something like the holster made for the "JB Custom "Mares Leg"

In Canada, which does not have stupid limits on barrel lengths, some people have said they will buy one and fit a full-size buttstock to it.

I almost hate to admit it, but I'll buy a "Ranch Hand" too, in .44mag.

...Unless the fit and finish looks painfully like a Daisy bb gun (like the Mossberg 464).

If accurate enough, I think it would be cool to do some deer hunting with a .44 mag Ranch Hand. Every deer I've taken around here was within 25 yards, so I think it might be possible.

I'm jumping on the Ranch Hand bandwagon as soon as I can get my hands on one in .357mag. I've been in love with the idea of owning a Mare's Leg for a long time, and thank god someone's finally producing one for under a grand.

We've got some pretty stupid gun laws just like most places ( seems no one country has a monopoly on stupid when it comes to guns!)
But for non semi auto's there are no barrel restrictions if it is a factory produced barrel.
We can't shorten a barrel on a non semi less then 18 inches but we can buy factory guns with shorter barrels no problem.....
In other words the "man" won't let me cut down an 870 barrel to less then 18 inches but he doesn't have a problem with me buying an 870 with a factory produced 12.5" barrel!
Makes no sense but these laws are hangovers from the past when I guess people where chopping barrels and using the guns for criminal activities.
I will be getting a Ranch Hand if they actually show up and I will swap stocks depending on how I feel with one of my other puma's.

I saw this too in AR I would love to know how they got the ATF to call it a pistol.
The receiver never had a shoulder stock attached.
The short stock qualifies as a "pistol grip" and can not be used as a shoulder stock.
The large lever loop allows one hand manipulation of the action.
Therefore, it's a handgun. ;)


18 USC 921
(a) As used in this chapter—
(29) The term “handgun” means—
(A) a firearm which has a short stock and is designed to be held and fired by the use of a single hand; and
(B) any combination of parts from which a firearm described in subparagraph (A) can be assembled.

The same way Remington, Weatherby and Savage made pistols out of their rifle actions. By never assembling them with a barrel over 14" nor a buttstock.

Contrary to popular belief, the "spin cock" usually just results in a loaded cartridge falling to the ground. Chuck Connor's guns in The Rifleman actually had a special modification that prevented the loaded cartridge from falling out of the action during the spin.

So can it really be operated with one hand?

My 30-30 has a standard lever. The action is stiff enough to not really want to try it. :eek: not sure my fingers would like it.

June 30, 2010, 04:50 PM
I have never done a full spin, but I could operate my old room mate's .22 lever action one handed. More of a jerk motion to get it forward and a jerk motion to get it back. Doubt I could do it with anything heavier though.
Not sure how this gun works. Never seen one aside from in the movies.

Well, I do have a 20" Rossi .357 Carbine I bought 25 years ago. It's about 4 MOA accurate, plenty accurate enough for deer hunting to 100 yards. I rather prefer the longer barrel. It nips at the heals of a .30-30 with the right load, pretty danged awesome. and, with a light .38 load in it, turns it into a squirrel rifle. I'm not sure if the "ranch hand" would be all that handy. I see it as a curiosity for old farts that remember "Bounty Hunter". :D

I think I saw a MSRP on this thing and it scared the hell outta me. :D

Well, my 92 has been infallible and if you wanna slick the thing up....

http://www.stevesgunz.com/

These 92s (which is the action on the "Ranch Hand", are very popular in CAS competition I understand. Read some of the notes on that site. He knows 'em inside and out. I've never sent mine off. It's slick enough for me. I've killed one doe at 80 yards with it when I first got it, but I don't really hunt with it much. It's a very handy little hunting rifle, though, and very versatile. I can't knock it for quality, having owned 7 Rossis over the years. Only problem I've ever had with a Rossi was a busted firing pin on a revolver. That seems to be a 20 year on going problem with the revolvers using hammer mounted firing pins. You can fix that, though, by fitting a K frame firing pin. That's what my smith did and I never had a problem with that particular gun again.

I currently own an old M68 3" Rossi, a M511 Sportsman .22 kit gun, and the 92. They're all keepers. :D

Tallinar
July 1, 2010, 12:43 PM
I've owned several Rossi 92's, and can comment a bit on their quality, I guess.

The only functional complaint I can make is that the extractors tend to be MUCH too stiff out of the box. Some are worse than others, and some kind of fix themselves with a few hundred rounds of break-in time. For those familiar with model 92's; you know that too much extractor tension equates to damaged brass. Steve at stevesgunz has a very educational DVD that walks you through his method of slicking up the action -- a significant step of which has to do with easing the extractor tension by more or less simply removing some metal from it.

As far as the wood goes, I've owned two Rossi's where the wood around the tang was very poorly fitted and required some filing/refinishing to make it look decent. This is mostly cosmetic, but I still considered it a problem.

Everything else about those model 92's is great. Like I said, I've owned several. :D Accuracy is perfectly acceptable and they make great cowboy guns.

As others will comment all around the web, Steve Young can make those Rossi's *sing*. His action jobs are beautiful (I've not had him work on any of mine, nor have I held one that he's worked on, but have read many accounts). If you don't want to pay or wait to have him do it, you could look into getting his DVD and attempting a DIY. He makes it look pretty easy.

So... what's the difference between the Rossi Ranch Hand, and the Puma Bounty Hunter?

Besides the $800-$900 price difference.

I've always read/heard/thought that Rossi and Puma were the same manufacturer. If that's true, why/how could Rossi turn our a mare's leg for less than $400 while Puma (also Rossi?) couldn't do that for under $1,200?

DPris
July 1, 2010, 02:51 PM
Puma is a registered trademark/brand name by Legacy Sports in Nevada, one of several US importers who bring (or brought) in the Brazilian-made Rossi leverguns. Each importer (EMF, etc.) contracts with Rossi for their own in-house models & brands.

Legacy imported the Rossi Puma for several years, then in the last year or so switched to the Chiappa-made 92 leverguns made in Italy. They carried on the Puma brand, applying it to the Chiappas.

The Chiappa 92 is truer to the original Winchester 92 in external frame lines & machining, uses very nice walnut instead of the Rossi mystery wood, is well-fitted and is made in a modern plant in Brescia on CNC machinery.
Chiappa says the 92 line is built almost entirely from parts fabricated in house.
Workmanship, from the samples I've seen, is typically better over all than the Rossis.

Rossis usually come fairly rough & oversprung.
Rossis now come with an irritating wing safety on top of the bolt, Chiappas do not.

I have the Chiappa Bounty Hunter "Puma", one very nicely built gun. (Also quite accurate, by the way.)
I have a Rossi "Puma", also a nice little 16-inch carbine, AFTER Steve worked over the action. :)
I'm dickering for one of the Ranch Hands, and if it comes through it'll go to Steve for some work.

And, finally- If it has to be "practical", you obviously don't understand the gun. :)

The Mare's Leg was the single most iconic handgun on TV 50 years ago, possibly rivalled only by the U.N.C.L.E. Special in the mid 1960s, and for those of us who watched it in McQueen's hands back then, that's reason enough. :D

I am an old cowboy (still at it) and the .45 just fits me.

My fiance also fell in love with this gun. She's big on the outdoor hardcore stuff and I guess the Ranch Hand filled a niche. In our family we bring a particular gun depending upon where/what we're doing that day, so for instance if I need a "city gun" I carry my stainless Taurus 6-shot .38 and she packs a Bond Arms derringer loaded with some of those Smith & Wesson ultimate self defense shells, a gun that works well in her small hands...
So, my question is this. We'll be moving to Nova Scotia for her
graduate studies and there's plenty of back country in those parts,
would any of you Canada boys say that, despite it's many
impractical applications, could the Ranch Hand actually function as
a decent choice for a "countryside" gun? Obviously there are
plenty of better choices out there for those with unlimited
resources, but I was thinking that given the fact we've already got
a .38 that buying a Rossi RH chambered in .357 to keep in the Jeep might be a smart move considering the cost of ammo these days. Plus, it's the closest thing to a legally concealable rifle I've ever seen, so yea, ability to keep it loaded in an automobile? PRICELESS!

Leadhead
October 9, 2010, 04:23 PM
You'd have to check with Nova Scotia on their rules about guns in the bush.... some provinces only allow it during hunting season with a hunting licence and tag.
You'd need to get a gun licence as well but otherwise a mare's leg specially with a full butt stock ( no problems up here) would be a great bushwacking gun.

so far as the "can it be operated single-handedly?" question goes and the concerns about a loaded round falling out, here's the thing:

* YES a loaded round can possibly/easily fall out while the gun is upside-down, but all it really takes is practice
* YES there is an actual point to the spin-cock maneuver, but typically only if you're riding a horse or motorcycle while operating the firearm, which is not recomended
* ALSO the actual point of the oversized lever ring was originally to accommodate people who were wearing work gloves and carrying the gun, IE - ranch hands

:-)

DPris
October 30, 2010, 07:09 PM
The unmodified '92 action may or may not drop a live round in spincocking it. Not entirely reliable.

One-handed operation should be an emergency-only proposition.

And no- the actual point of the oversized ringlevers originally was to allow John Wayne to look cool in 1939, and Chuck Connors to look cool two decades later. :)

This morning as my friend and I were walking into the gun store my friend spotted a sales clerk taking a Ranch Hand out of the box. They had just received two of them.
Now they have one.:D.

First impression is the workmanship is good. The action is your typical lever action.

This afternoon I ran about 70 rounds through it, 38 Special.

The gun does not point naturally for me. It took me a little shooting before I could somewhat reliably hit COM, from the hip, from 10 yards.

Fast lever operation works on your hand after a while. A pair of thin leather gloves might be welcome during a morning of a lot of fast shooting.

I plan on a lot of shooting tomorrow, including some .357 rounds.

Looks like it's going to be a fun gun.

In Canada, which does not have stupid limits on barrel lengths, some people have said they will buy one and fit a full-size buttstock to it.
The current Rossi "ranch hand" is 24" long with that useless stub of a stock on it.

The full length Rossi M92 knockoff (formerly "Puma") stock will fit it and put the OAL over the 26" that it needs to be to be legal as a non-restricted firearm in Canada.

There is no NFA style barrel length restrictions on rifles and shotguns in Canada as long as the short barrel is factory installed.

It is illegal to "chop" a rifle of shotgun barrel to less than 18" in Canada & to do so renders the firearm an illegal "prohibited" firearm.

Rather than do that I'd just as soon get a much more versatile Rossi Puma in .454 Casull with a 16" barrel as the over sized lever loop is redundant as far as I'm concerned.

You can quickly get pretty good with it while shooting from the hip or aiming it like a pistol.

I have not seen another one at the gun stores or at the gun shows since I bought mine.

My Rossi is looking pretty good beside anything I've pulled out of a green box lately as regard functionality, dependability and workmanship.
Big Green is heavy into gimmick marketing and WW has had so many ups & downs that not many consider either of them as trusted industry standards any more.
No need to mention the latest fiasco where Big Green persistently refused to fix a trigger problem that made the firearm dangerous.
When you quit giving a hoot about the safety of your customers (mostly Americans) it's time to shape up or ship out.

Cause they had to classify the Rossi Ranch Hand as a handgun to get around the NFA prohibitions on short barreled rifles.

The Ranch Hand is legally a handgun.

If they called it a rifle BATFE would be around to pick you and your new toys up & you'd both be heading for a lock up in a federal facility faster' n you can say "G-Man". :D

Fancy looking ammo box (bottle)..........where'd you get it?.........impressive !
It's easier to transport ammo in small containers, bottles, cardboard boxes, etc, that to carry the ammo boxes.:D

It's suprising how fast those boxes empty. I average shooting about 5 days a week. Sometimes a couple times a day.
It's nice being retired.:)


Even that Ranch Hand can go through a lot of 38/357 quickly.

Tell me about it.
I used to be a PPC & IPSC competitor and would go through at least 500 rounds in a single match.
The peepers started to go and that part of my shooting life is now contained in photo albums and trophies over the fireplace.
The old blue monster (Dillon progressive) doesn't get near the use that it once did.
If the apocalypse does happen it has to be above the nose to count. :D
