Well, I had to do it... Picked up a 44-40 Rossi

<< < (2/2)

Baltimore Ed:
I do have a Rossi that I love. It's a copy of the Winchester .22 pump gallery rifle. Mine is nickeled with a blond stock and forearm minus the stupid safety on the bolt. A very nice rifle.

Tuolumne Lawman:
Well, the Rossi is in 10 day Californication waiting period jail.  It is pre-safety, has the leather wrapped, lever, and is well polished for CAS!  I ordered a Marbles rear semi-buckhorn sporting sight to replace the original bent metal Rossi sight.  The early Rossi rear actually works really well for me, but is really FUGLY!  My last one I used the Marbles.

I am also going to strip the dark finish off the wood, and see what I get.  maybe natural with BLO on it.  On a side note, I just traded a Bersa 380 for a .44-40 Cimarron Thunderer with a 4.75" barrel.  It actually came from the same owner as the .44-40 Rossi I just got!

I'll make this my back up main match pistol, in case one of my 1872 Open Tops dies!

Baltimore Ed:
I was lucky enough to pull one of these out of the hat at the NE Regional in Md years ago except mine was a .45 Uberti with checkered grips and the shorter bbl. A very nice revolver. At that point imo I had won the shoot so I had a good time. Nicest gun I'd ever won. I also won a .44 Ruger semi rifle at a .22 match but didn't keep it very long. But I've still got the Birdshead Uberti.
Pardon my french--- I've still got my Uberti with the Thunderer grip.

Girrrrrrr ..... Snap ....... Snarl ...... Snap .......

As shown, that is NOT a Birdshead grip.  It's a THUNDERER grip.


Just bugs me to no end when it (the THUNDERER) is called a Birdshead  ;D

Mean Bob Mean:
Nice picks mate, better send them to me for a ten year evaluation.
