I have a Steve's Gunz Rossi 92 that's received his action job, trigger job, and a new marbles tang peep sight. Chambered in 45 Colt it's now delightful to shoot. Can't believe I haven't found this discussion until now.

I bought all the parts for my 92 in 357 and did all the work myself and saved quite a few $$. (except for the cerakote) Removed all the guts and replaced all the springs. Bought a wet stone and slicked up the bolt and all the sharp edges on everything. It's smooth as glass when working the action. Trigger is so much better and loading the shells is no longer a pain in the ass. Some of you might not like it this way and that's ok. I had this gun for about 7 years and never really shot it, but now that I made it tacticool, I can't put it down. Soooo much fun to shoot!!!

I personally would want something bigger than a 357 if I have a bear charging me from 40yds. But if the bear just plans on laying there with no desire to get up and run at you to rip your face off, you’ll be fine with a 357.

I bought a Rossi a short time back, with a 45 Colt chamber. I like it a lot. I think their butt stock sucks. The feeding and accuracy are fine. I replaced the safety, but I don’t recall what I installed.

Someone mentioned Gunbroker. I stopped buying anything from Gunbroker in 2009. I used to buy from Gunbroker quite a bit - never more!

If I buy on-line, it’s almost through Guns International. Guns International is where I put my up rifles for sale.


I prefer classic.
