'92 Rossi..........
« on: May 08, 2004, 04:41:14 PM »
Howdy......
I have a '92 Rossi that worked flawlessly (is that a word :o ) for the first year of my Cas shooting. After that it would stove pipe the the cartridge before it could get to the chamber (.45 colt) It's been sittin in the safe for 4 years now and ain't been shot sense (I have a '66 Win. and a '94 Marlin also) I was told by another shooter that I need to put a shim under the chingaso's (thingys) that are screwed (  :o ) to the frame and my problem will be solved. I could send it to Steve Young but that wiuld be too easy. Anyone tried a fix like this........?

Good shootin......

If it can be fixed< Steve is the"man".  If he works on it, the problems are solved and future problems are avoided.  If you are planning on keeping that rifle. Let Steve fis it for you.  Four years is a long time to let it sit.  Thats four years that you could have been shooting it if Steve had worked on it to begin with.

Drifter,
Let me offer another possibility.  Take it over to Bob Shaw at Walker '47.  He may not like working on 92s but he's a wizard when it comes to fixing them.  He slicked up my 92 carbine and it smokes!!  Should save you the trouble of shipping the rifle off to Texas and back.

Howdy Drifter,

I just traded my Rossi 92 off, it sat in peices for almost 2 years when I tried working on it. The instructions are online, I can send you them if you want.

Steve Young is a good bet.

To answer Drifters question....yes it will work. I've done it to several Rossi's and one Browning that had the same problem. If you send the gun to Steve he will replace the guide rails (chingasos) with new ones to achieve the same effect.

Another source of this problem is that little spring loaded plunger on the side of the lifter. If it gets crudy and stiff, sometimes it will jam in the depressed position and will allow the lifter to snap up with a bit more authority....sending the shells upwards a bit too fast.

I can sure go along with the 'lift too quick' theory.  My '92 would stovepipe 250 grain (45 Colt), but not the 200's.  Too much inertia with the heavier boolit I would say.  Steve has to be the answer.
