    What are your thoughts on the Rossi version of the Model 92 lever gun? .357, pre-safety model. 20" barrel.

    I've kinda sorta wanted a .357 lever gun just for fun lately and can pick this one up for ~$300 in trade value.

    For the money, is this a decent enough range gun? Is it overpriced?

    these guns have good rep, and the price is correct. i shot a marlin 94 in 357 extensively and enjoyed it. the rossi is a close copy of the winchester 92, and reliable.

    I had a rossi many years ago. It would shoot 3-4" groups at a 100 with jacketed bullets. Lead bullets would start to tip by 25 yards out. I never found a lead bullet load that would shoot worth a darn in that gun.

    I called rossi. They said they used a 1/30 twist for all their rifles. Another poster hear said his had a 1/18 twist. Maybe they tightened it up some.

    Check the gun you want to buy. See if the seller will let you try it out first. $300 is a fair price. I have Marlin 94s in 32, 357 and 44 mag and think they are much better guns. I would save my money and get the marlin.
