I followed a bit of info from here http://www.leverguns.com/articles/taylor/rossi.htm

We found that on the .38/357 Rossi the magazine follower for the .25-20/.32-20 Winchester Model 92 is just right. It is the same diameter and length as the plastic thing the Rossi's use. It is a tad smaller on the inside, but I was able to easily "thread" the magazine spring into it. It works fine and looks so much better than what the Rossi factory used.

But it doesn't quite work. It is smaller on the inside, and I was able to thread the spring in, but it is also smaller on the outside. The follower came out of the tube and was sitting above the carrier after I ejected the 10th round while testing operation immediately after installing. Is there something I can do to use this metal follower (wrap the base in something to increase diameter?), or do I need to toss it and order one from steve's gunz.

I ordered from the Smith shop instead of Steve's. Massive price & shipping difference.
