Not to drag this thread too far off topic but my 92 made in 2013 has really great bluing aswell and on the receiver it has a gorgeous plum looking finish

Wifey and I originally wanted to cerakote both our 92s but now im thinking i cant bring myself to do it on mine. I still wanna get maybe an older 94 in 45lc so im thinking ill leave the 92 as is and give it to my daughter, whos the oldest, when she gets a little older. I think shell appreciate that subtle plum/purple more than her little brother

I'd do a 32-20 in a heartbeat, to go with my Ruger Blackhawk.

I've been a little out of the loop with Rossi as of late.

I'd hesitate to believe that simply moving the plant necessitates or recommends all new tooling unless the old machines were total crap. I'd also have a healthy dose of cynicism regarding a move in production location (and/or tooling) suddenly increasing the fit and finish quality of production. After all that worked so well for Remington when they decided to relocate Marlin that the brand IMO still hasn't recovered. Especially since Remington quality assurance on several of their firearms has been rather suspect of late. (Including most of their handgun design and manufacturing attempts and their IMO misguided decision to rebrand Para Ordinance.)
