Howdie from South Florida

Postby jayb514 » 13 Mar 2018 20

Hello all!

I live in Broward County Florida and have wanted a 357 lever to pair with my S&W 686. I just got my 92 357 stainless 16" round barrel today! I'd been looking for one for quite a while. I came across Steve Young who had what I was looking for. I paid a premium (cause he had already worked on it) but I think it was worth the wait and money. At any rate I'm happy to be a Rossi owner and wanted to share my joy with like minds.

Welcome to the forum! Ask all kinds of questions; share all kinds of experiences.
Congratulations on getting your first 92. And, I'm a little envious that you scored one of Steve's slicked up Rossi
weapons.

I can't seem to post any pictures. They're all too big even after converting to a PDF and compressing them. I'll try reducing the resolution on my phone and re-take some pics.

Still can't post pics. I get an error saying the max size allowed is 250 KiB. That is tiny as all get out! Oh well, she's a beauty none the less.

I think you'll be super happy with that gun.
a slicked up 92 is probably the finest machine out there , remember the ammo is part of that machine.

Howdy from South Carolina, and welcome to the forum.

When I was looking for a 24" .357 92, I asked Steve if he had one, but no luck. But got his DVD and replacement parts when I found one. I bet one he's worked on is smooth.

He (Steve Young) did his flush safety plug. It looks pretty good IMHO. He replaced the magazine spring with a stainless one. He replaced the plastic follower with a stainless one. He replaced the ejector spring and lightened the loading gate spring. He adjusted the trigger (it is AWESOME!) and, of course, smoothed the action.
