Tascosa Joe:
A crappy 92 in 25-20 wandered into my workshop a few weeks back.  I have been scrubbing the bore for weeks and I believe it is not salvageable.  Is a 1906 "92 capable of handling a .357 Maximum?

Sir Charles deMouton-Black:
Just a WAG, but wouldn't you have to stick with an overall length in the same ballpark as the 25-20? 

Trailrider:
Rebore or rebarrel to 32-20?

This  (25/20 to 32/20) is easy all ya got to do is change the barrel (or rebore it and re fit it)

Anything else (that changes rim diameter and case body diameter) gets seriously difficult 
Alterations to the innards are required and some of it is tricky gunsmithing - cartridge lifter, magazine stopper, feed rails, If ya can buy Rossi parts maybe 357 mag ?

Been there done it  25/20 to 38/40
