Rossi Ranch Hand SBR'd and Suppressed

Hello all,

I finally have finished getting the approvals and putting this together. Ever since I saw that Hickok45 video awhile back I have wanted one of these. The one he had was a .357 mine is a .44. I chose .44 simply because I reload for it and not for .357.

It has a 12" barrel and I had to cut the mag tube so now it only holds 6 rounds. I put a marbles bullseye rear sight and a higher gold bead front sight on it. The rear sight is like a ghost ring.

I just swapped out the mares leg for a boyds stock made for the Rossi 92, fits great. Color doesn't exactly match the forend, but I can always fix that.

Shooting this with the 45 Osprey and 44 special loads is an absolute hoot and very quite. I load the 44 specials so they are at about 950-1000fps.

I just wanted to share it with you guys because I really like it and find it an unusual gun. Not something you see everyday, a SBR suppressed lever action rifle.

Sorry for the poor pics. I used my cell phone which is about 5 or 6 years old.









Then one pic for the space rifle guys.

I've said for a while now that if I were to get a suppressed rifle, it would be a lever gun with a big bore chambering.
Who needs supersonic velocities when you're throwing a 240gr chunk of lead?
Your rifle is my ideal suppressed rifle.
Really nicely done.

Well you should do it if you can. Its a whole lot of fun. The wait time are getting really short. It took 6 weeks for the eform 1 to be approved and just under 3 months for the form 4 for the osprey to be approved.

Right now I am using 250gr serria's in 44spl loads. I may even try hunting with it using 44spl gold dots or something.

I've always wanted to do the same with that lever but never got the money or time and ammo price put it out of range for me. Now that I've got all my reloading equipment setup I have started to save again for it. Maybe as a hog rifle since WMAs now allow suppressed rifles now. good job.

Definitely falls into the "Well that's something you don't see every day" category. Like the suppressed Beretta Cx4 Storm too.

Thanks. Kind of what I was going for. The storm is also a SBR.

Cool. I'd like to do something similar but in 45-70.
