16" Rossi 92 question

(1/1)

DeaconKC:
Ran across a new 16" Rossi .357 carbine at a LGS yesterday. Very smooth, but my question is, will it hold 10 rounds of .38 Special in the magazine tube. The site lists an 8 round capacity with .357 but no info or .38s.

Abilene:
I'm going to say, for the most part "no."  By trimming mag spring to bare minimum and loading .38's short, "maybe" but in general '92's don't like cycling short rounds. 

I think over the years I've read of a few who have had success doing this, but more who have not.  16" '66 and '73 are a different animal because the last round loaded is on the carrier, not in the mag tube.

DeaconKC:
Now it is a moot point as I found a 20" Rossi and swapped for it this weekend. Looking forward to my g'nephews face when he gets to shoot it!
