Like a Chinese puzzle to take one part. I shoot my Winchester .45 a lot. The easiest way I found to clean the internals was to remove the buttstock and squirt charcoal lighter in while I worked the action over a bucket. Works pretty good when the residual fluid evaporated I just oiled it up a bit.

I assume you're talking about your new 1873 in .45 Colt. I have one of those too, and i once tried to remove the plate on the side to clean the internals but the damn thing wouldn't come off. I gave up when I buggered the screw.

The Rossi 92s are nice lever action rifles. I have one in 45LC that I use for Cowboy Action Shooting. It have been slicked up by Kiowa Jones and it works great. I goes good with my pair of Stainless Steel Ruger New Vaquero Bisleys which are also in 45LC.

Thanks from sfc higgins

Nice. I like the wood!

1st thing, I'd do if I were you, is remove the safety and replace it with a plug from stevesgunz.com

Mine is also a pre-safety model:

To OP. Sweet looking rifle!
I recently purchased a Rossi Stainless .357 with 20" barrel. First thing I did was watch the youtube vids on it and cleaned and polished the internals. Didnt take much and I had a sweet running rifle. I also didnt like the stock finish and put a few coats of tru oil on it. I also removed the rear sight and installed a Skinner barrel peep. Made the perfect plinking rifle for me.

Really want one of these in 44 Mag to hang out with my S&W 629. Do they stand up to use?
