The BBS Henrys are right around 6.5# That's not unreasonably heavy for a handgun cartridge carbine.

I've never had much luck with any Rossi rifle. I've owned a few, and they've all had feed and/or extraction issues out of the box.

Meh…Marlins suck and Henrys weigh about 27 pounds. A 27 pound finely executed brass turd is not superior to an actual rifle that is easy to carry, reasonably accurate, and that functions well. And unlike Marlins, I’ve never bought a Rossi that had the front sight canted off in one direction.

A Rossi is a John Browning rifle. That pretty much says all you need to know.
The Rossi 92 is a poor copy of a John Browning design and that's it. Their build quality and QC sucks. From the sharp edges to the rough machining to the poorly finished "Brazilian hardwood" stocks {low build quality} to the often poorly indexed barrels and crappy canted sights {poor QC on the already low build qualtiy}.

I recently paid Elk Country ~ $640 for a 45 LC lever Rossi. Last week-end I saw a Rossi just like it at a gun show, but n 357 for ~ $400. I probably should have bought it.

I don't see anything wrong with my new Rossi, but I don't care for the butt stock nor the stupid buck horn sights (I hate buck horn sights). It feeds the ammo I loaded for my revolvers just fine. The action looks very good.

The weather outside is not good and I have not shot the Rossi yet.


I prefer classic.

And even if all that is true, which it really isn’t, it’s still better than a Henry or Marlin as a useable tool. Hate especially true of the Henry.

Oh it's really true alright. I worked in the gun business in one capacity or another from 1990-2019, from selling them to repairing them to building them and have seen it all. In fact, right off hand I can't think of a lower quality lever action rifle than a Rossi. Furthermore, Rossi quality across the board, rifle, shotgun, handgun, is pretty lousy. If you get one that shoots well, is reliable in function and doesn't have any major issues, thank your lucky stars. Their customer service should you discover issues after the sale sucks too.

I'll take a Marlin over a Rossi any day ending in "Y". In fact, right off hand I can't think of a lower quality lever action rifle than a Rossi. Furthermore, Rossi quality across the board, rifle, shotgun, handgun, is pretty lousy.

imagine all that time in the gun business and still being so wrong.

Right, but Rossi 92s are still better than the crap you blather about.

Oh, I know plenty. Rossi 92s are great little rifles that are both cheaper, stronger, and much handier than either Marlin or Henry, particularly Henry. I guess a heathen could argue that they don’t accommodate optics as well as a Henry or Marlin, but then again, someone who would put optics on a pistol caliber lever action, should probably be horse whipped.

Top is JM stamped
Next is Remington Marlin
Next is Rossi
Bottom is Winchester Big bore

I couldn’t help but notice the Winchester and the Remington Marlin look a lot alike.
The Rossi’s stock isn’t equal to any of the others, in my opinion.
