Rossi/Puma Lever Gun

Here's my Rossi/Puma M92 in .45 Colt. This one has a 24" octagonal barrel with brass frame. I have always like the look of the crescent style butt stock and for-end cap instead of the barrel band.
I recently installed a gold bead front sight, fold down rear sight and a Marbles fully adjustable flip up tang sight.
I looked at the Lyman sight which was much less expensive but they don't have the wind-age adjustment so I spent more and got the Marbles. It will be worth it.
Ordered the slick up kit from Steve's Guns and a Gunslinger spring kit from Brownell's. I will be having fun with that project.

nice I have been about the tang peep. so I am assuming the fold down rear if for anything up to 100 yds and tang for longer?

It's a real nice looking gun really dig the octagon barrel. How does she shoot and cycle? I have a RioGrande in .410 and had some pretty serious cycleing and ejection issues. This has kept me from bying another Rossi. Just waiting to see what other shooters have 4 luck. Mine is fine now after about 3 hours work with a flat diamond stone. Looking for some real life experience from other people before I decide to pull the trigger on a 44 or 38/357 Let me know

Very nice. I like the brass and in the white metal look. I saw one in that same configuration at a gun show 2 weeks ago near Cherry Point, but I needed the funds for other purchases so I passed on it.

I'm also a fan of 24" Model 92 rifles:



(It's a takedown model)



And I'm a big fan of Marbles Tang Sights:



My Rossi however is a 20" carbine - on the bench along side the rifle.

That's a real beauty! My Marlin '94 remains my favorite overall firearm, but it's not near as pretty as that (not that it's ugly mind you). I really like the classic look of the crescent butt plate, brass receiver and octagon barrel. Thanks for sharing!

Really like your rifle. I've been looking into a lever action hopefully by fall, in time for deer season. I'm going to have to look at these Rossi's. Sure wish Ruger would make a lever action.

They did, it was a weird, ugly blend of a 10/22 and a Winchester Model 88...

I can respect that, but compared to the photos in the OP, and the beauty in the eye of THIS beholder, it was Rosie O'Donell VS. Selma Hayek.

takedown very cool!!!

ok, a question for everyone with tang sights. I had a set of mojo sights on my mauser. I really liked them like a peep in a peep. I want the same setup for the m92. I was thinking lyman globe front sights would work well with marble tang sights. I would like to have the ability to quickly change ranges from 100 to 200. I was looking at skinner sights. any feed back
