    Does anyone else Rossi 92, eject spent cases like it's trying to send them to Mars????

    Mine will even launch A-Zoom aluminum dummy rounds a good distance! :)

    I've got the LSI/PUMA M92 version. 20"Octagon blue.

    I haven't had any ejection problems with it.

    Oh mine ejects perfectly, never jammed or anything, it just ejects a little "forcefully"! :)

    Are you moving the lever down more "forcefully" than needed?

    BCCL, the ejector spring inside the bolt assembly is hellishly stout on the Rossi. If you get a spring kit for the rifle the two that come with it are reduced power. main and ejector springs. It's that common an issue.

    Back when I first slicked mine up to the first stage (learning as I go so I snuck up on the amount for each change :D) it still had enough oomph to send the .357Mag casings up and onto the roof of the farm house facade on our cowboy action bays. The folks watching this said that the casings were reaching a good 10 feet of height! ! ! ! I've since replaced the cut down ejector spring with a home made softer one and now it only spits them up about a foot or so higher than my head where they arc down and land on the brim of my hat... :D The one in the spring kit you can get from Steve's is about the same as the one I made.

    Thanks BCRider!

    No rhinon, it does it even if you work the lever very slow, when it gets to the point where it ejects, it sends them flying. :)

    Rhinon, you're thinking that the ejector is a fixed pin/finger like on many other styles. But on the '92 it's actually a spring loaded part of the traveling bolt assembly that tensions the lower part of the case head and holds that tension until the lip of the casing clears the mouth of the chamber. Once that happens it's "PING!" up and out. It's not related to the bolt's travel speed at all.

    BCCL, with the reduced power spring if you're ejecting loaded rounds then they do sort of dribble out rather than being tossed with verve. But in a way that's good too since they don't tend to fly away and make you search for them. Instead they only come out about a foot up and to the side if you're cycling them out at the reloading table.
