:o Man this is why you never post right before bed! My Ranch Hand is in fact shooting low. I am trying to get it to shoot higher lol. Wow rookie mistake! Thanks for the advice though I would have been mad if I was moving things in the wrong direction!

My Ranch Hand is chambered in 357/38 Special. I've started calling this my Steam Punk Pirate Gun. +guns

I did notice yesterday at the range the last cartridge would occasionally fail to eject, not sure what is going on with that. After cleaning it at the house and doing a function test with dumby rounds it cycled just fine. I'll keep an eye on it though and see if I need to work on the ejector.

A good way to tell when a Rossi Rifleman has just bought a new gun is dirt under the finger nails from fixing stuff. ;)
Did you do your Rossi (break-in) Regimen.......strip to basic parts, thoroughly clean (including the inside of the magazine tube), deburr (just the conspicuous machining burrs.....no major metal removal), light lub with a quality oil, work action at least 500 times :?:
The Rossi (break-in) Regimen solves fresh-out-of-the-box hiccups about 90% of the time. :mrgreen:

**92s are ammo sensitive.....you gotta find whatever ammo configurations work in YOUR gun

I have done the full break down and cleaning, the only thing i didn't check was the magazine tube which I will be doing once my new mag follower arrives, hopfully today. Expect at least 100 more questions from me as I fine tune this awesome little pistol.

Well I ordered the Bounty Hunter leather combo, from http://gunstockcover.com/ and I have to say I love the look and function of this rig. Lots of different ways to carry this beast of a pistol. My favorite is now the across the chest carry.
It comes with lots of additional leather hanging off it so you can braid it, or bead it out if you choose to. I'm thinking of just cutting the leather ends short and keeping the look simple, but I'm still thinking it over.

Please let me know what you think!

Very nice!, can you get me a picture that is horizontal, for the random header, rather than vertical?
