I'll be getting a Rossi 1892 .454 in the very near future and need some help gearing it up. Much as I'd like to send it to Paco for an action job, that won't be in the cards for a while. I have a $75 budget of other people's money (I was bribed to do a job ;) and can throw in some of my own limited finances, but overall not enough for serious cowboy action bling; you know, leather this, leather that, etc etc.

I have a cartridge sling and buttstock sleeve I'll be cannibalizing from another rifle. Sure they're neoprene, but they're cheap and work. I'll have to hit up Uncle Mike for the sling mount seeing as this particular model doesn't apparently have one.

What else would you recommend? Scope? Sightes? I get to play with 45lc and 454 if it makes a difference. Other miscellaneous must-haves? Thanks guys. My rifle appreciates your input ;)

In my opinion, a used leather sling and butt cuff would be more than plenty for the gun, and could be found within your budget.

If you want leather, then you need to get intouch with a guy they call "Levergun". He is a great guy and has an amazing product.

Here's what he did for me:

What else would you recommend? Scope? Sightes?No scope, and if you must, a Williams receiver sight.

Regardless of the power level of the .454, scoped or not, it is still a pistol cartridge, with a 100-150 yard range before poor bullet trajectory gets the best of you and your range estimation.

BTW: For a .454 carbine, you might want to consider a recoil pad instead of that curved steel butt-plate!
It's gonna hurt!

A set of Williams Fire Sights and a couple of sling swivals and your good to go......

I got one that looks just like yours, but in 45LC only. I have another Puma in 454......Kicks like a mule with full house 300g loads.
