Take away the short stroke kits and the 92 is just as fast as any rifle in the game .
And will handle hotter ammo for other things needed too.
Just sayin

I been playin with 92's since I was a youngster (lets say 45years) I can do considerably and consistently better with my 66 (only had it 20 years) - no short stroke kit - the size and shape of the lever loop and trigger guard and trigger placement in the guard just seems to suit me better to run hard - in the end it will come down to what YOU feel most comfortable with
3 x 92's , 2 x 66's , 94, 71, 76
Agree on the hotter ammo - cant do THAT in a 66

Greyhawk.

Bear with me. Which photo shows the Cut-Off in the wrong position? Top, middle or Top. The differences are slight. I have been wrestling my Rossi 92 for a month now and still have the problem of double feeding.  I think I have eliminated the OAL, 1.58, so I'm desperate to find out if it's the magazine cut off issue.

Well, I went and traded for a Rossi 92 in .45 Colt today. 20" round barrel and a nicely stocked lil rifle. Can't bring the pup home til Saturday due to Illinois' 3 day wait. Decided on the .45 over the .44 because most on here said how the .45 fed well and sometimes the .44s didn't like the Specials as much. While my S&Ws are either in .38, .44 Special or .45 ACP, my Vaquero is in .45. Still on the look out for another revolver.

I have a 92 in 454/45,  it works flawlessly with either round.  In 454, I used RNHP. For .45, LeveRevolution.  I have taken white tail deer with both rounds.  I replaced the rear sight and gave the wood several coats of Danish wood oil.

ETA: Perhaps mine feeds fine because I only use round nose ammo.  I have never tried flat nose/wad cutter ammo.

apologies for missing this question - you either fixed it or sold it by now - but answer is the middle picture - you can see that the little cutoff dohickey is not as far across as in the other rifle - the front point of that cutoff is just hanging up slightly on the barrel face  (friend did a rebarrel for me and didnt spot this -the gun cycles and I guess in time it would wear in and work better)
Another problem  I saw with a Rossi was the spring behind that cutoff got gunked up and stuck - different cause same result -

Jeremiah, thanks for the tip. I load 250 grain rn for my Vaquero, plan on using the same for the Rossi. Now the fun part of finding a load they both like!

Okay, first impressions on the .45 Rossi. Like my .357, it came with straight grain stained hardwood on the front and back, and seems a bit smoother than my .357 was when new. The .45's loading gate does NOT have the sharp edge like the .357 did, so I may not have to stone it like I did the other. The wood is definitely gonna get some stain, as that did a world of good when I did the .357. Looking forward to getting some rounds down range.

Took the new Rossi .45 to the range today. A little stiff, but will smooth up with use. About 5 rounds to get the sights right and the 50 yard gong was a lot of fun with it. Ran perfectly. I like the little beastie.

My Rossi definitely benefited with some careful smoothing and a replacement ejector spring.
