I was shooting my Rossi Puma 92, chambered in 357 Mag, today, and it occured to me that I like it pretty good. One thing I would like to change, however, is the kindergarten, Red Ryder sights that came on it. I do not want to drill any extra holes. What sights would you all recommend?

I switched mine (454) over to a ghost ring rear and fiber optic red front from Steve's Gunz last year. I found target visibility to be really good for hunting applications and pretty accurate on paper to 50 yards. I feel I could have shot game to a max of 100 yards, but that would have been my absolute limit with that setup.

I recently switched to a scout mount rail (again off Steve's website), as the rifle was already drilled and tapped for this and put a 4x fixed power pistol scope on her. Now 100 yards is an easy shot, but I do feel I have given up some quickness in an "Oh sh-t" situation - I live in griz country. But considering that I'm much more likely to have the opportunity for a 100 yard +/- shot on game than have a bear emergency, I find the trade off more than acceptable.

The rifle feels and looks good with both setups IMO. I am really happy with it.

Go here and look Steve's Gunz

Steve did my R92 and he did a great job

You can call or email him and ask

He will give you the best answer

+1 on Steve.

The '92, while not the best choice for fast action like in cowboy action shooting, is one of the best for high intensity rounds. For example, has anyone seen a .454 in a Marlin...

The '92 is very strong, stronger than Marlin.

I have one just like yours, medallion and all. Mines in 44mag though. Yours is the only other one I've seen with the Puma medallion.

Anyone seen one of these "for sale"..??? I would prefer the .44 but a .357 would go nicely with the hand-cannon Taurus I have. Would save carrying two different types ammo..
