Almost a "Duke" rifle
Rossi Puma M92 357 mag Trapper with two of it's .45 companions. First new rifle in long,long time! Reason for 357 is I had accumulated a "pile" of 38/357 ammo over the years and wanted something a little lighter than my old 30/30 or 308 for around the farm and as HD option. Chronographed and accuracy tested at 50yds 8 different loads from 180gr Buffalo Bore to Fed. 125jhps. Accuracy and feeding was good with all. Recoil seemed less than 30/30 even w/ BB loads. Coyotes beware!
Very old Rem 125jhp....1894fps
And no I don't want big loop lever. Too old to twirl rifles and afraid I'll put my eye out and have to wear patch like "Rooster"!:mrgreen:
Sure is a purdy gun yall got there. Been looking to get my own lever action carbine.
Thanks. I have a 1930s vintage Winchester 94 and this M92 is slicker and has better trigger right out of box.:smt033
Here's my Rossi Puma in .45colt along with .45colt Ruger Vaquero Birddie.
Man I love those lever rifles. I have a Winchester Model 94 in 30-30 and a Marlin mod 1894SS in 44 mag. I'd love top find something in 357. Maybe I'd be able ot keep a 357 handgun around if I had a long gun shoting the same ammo..lol
I've got 3 357s but they all DA snubbies. Looking forone of them 50th Anniversary Blackhawks to go with it. It sure is more fun to shoot than them snubbies.
