Since I had first reported my “straight-out-of-the-box” satisfaction with my 92, I was hoping to report equal satisfaction with the first firing range test, but it was not to be. I decided to start the test by firing a full magazine of .38 special followed by a full magazine of .357. Everything went very well with the .38 specials, but not at all well with the .357 magnums. Every time I fired a .357 the greater recoil would cause the elevator on the rear sight to slip from the second step down to the first step. To maintain proper elevation I had to adjust it back to the second step after each shot. I finally gave up on the .357’s and finished the box of .38 specials with absolutely no problems. After returning to my man cave I decided to search the Internet for a possible solution. I found a You Tube video showing a young man describing the same problem with his Rio Grande in a 45/70 caliber. His solution was to file a tiny notch into the desired step on the elevator thereby “locking” it to the sight. I felt like his solution was “overkill” for my .357 since his recoil was greater with the 45/70. I felt that my sight just needed more “down pressure” to hold the elevator in place. I removed the sight, clamped the blade in my small bench vise with the sight pointed downward while leaving the edge of the dovetail as close as possible to the top surface of the vise. I lightly tapped the dovetail so the bend would be at the very edge of the dovetail rather than causing a bow in the blade. When I reinstalled the sight I could feel the extra pressure it took to lift it enough to slide the elevator into place. My wife and I spent yesterday morning at the range firing both .357 and .38 special through the 92 with no further problems. She and I love the 92 and we are proud to have added it to our collection.

Just got back from my first round of shooting with my new Rossi Model 92. I have to say I'm impressed. For a "budget" gun, the quality of construction really isn't bad. The loading door is a little stiff, and the action could be smoother, but I couldn't be happier with my purchase. First chance I get I'm going to take it apart and smooth out all the moving bits and pieces. Beautiful gun though, and I love the octagonal barrel. I would definitely suggest this gun to anyone looking for an affordable lever action. I only put 100 rounds through, but it seems to be fairly accurate. All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase.

The model R92-51011 had all the features that I wanted in a lever action rifle. (1) .357 magnum caliber. (2) stainless steel for easy maintenance (3) heavy 24-inch octagon barrel for accuracy (4) great styling with the curved butt plate and forearm cap also in stainless and (5) a fantastic price. After viewing several videos on You Tube about the R92, I was prepared to do whatever modifications were necessary to smooth the action and improve the “trigger pull”. I was hoping, however, to avoid some of the “feeding” problems that were shown to have caused some owners to return their rifle to Braztech for repair. After cleaning the rifle of excess preservative lubricants (both inside and out) I made sure the safety was on while I cycled several full magazines of various ammo (including reloads) with no jams or failures to eject. Maybe I am just too easy to please but I found that, “right out of the box”, the action is plenty smooth enough for my use and, for safety purposes, I would not want the “trigger pull” any lighter. I am looking forward to taking it to the range next week. I plan to fire at least 50 rounds each of .357 magnum and .38 special ammo. I will try to post the results as a follow up on this review.
