I recently bought a stainless Rossi in .357 mag with a 16” barrel. I love the little bastard.

Has their popularity increased since the Port Arthur gun control or have they always been popular?

Always moderately popular. When the US was having its wild west so were we or rather 'wild everywhere', we still had lawless regions into the 1930's. Thousands of 1873 , 1892 etc were imported, some of our prisons used 38-40 as a service calibre. Still a lot of original guns around, always a few 1892's for sale in any gunstore, 1873's are much rarer. The 30-30 is one of the most popular calibres in my state , since I was a kid anyway. What did increase popularity was the cowboy action shooting scene from the 2000's onwards.

Sold my R92 .357 to guy in Cal, normally I say no due to reams of paper, but he set up my FFL and paid him directly

My old InterArms stainless Rossi 92 (about 1990s?) has been reliable and accurate, especially if I crank the action with vigor. It came to me second-hand, so it was well broken in and smooth. I feed it truncated cone lead bullets most of the time and heavy XTPs when bigger chores are presented. One thing I was warned about has proven good advice: ammo length is optimum at 1.550".

If you like iron sights, the standard issue works OK. I put a Marble tang peep on mine, which suits me well, and Skinner makes some lovely sights also if you want to replace the original equipment.

There’s quite a few 357’s on Gunsinternational. A lot of 1873’s, Rossi’s and others.


I prefer classic.

I got one of the Rossi R92 SBL's last year. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but have cycled some rounds through it. The action is a little stiff, not surprising for a new gun, and the loading gate is a little sharp. I plan to polish up a few bits and might see about lightening the trigger. I figure it should be a dandy cast bullets in the 150-170 gr range.
