Very sweet little rifle! I have a stainless steel Rossi 92 that is identical to it but mine is an older one without the manual safety. Do you intend to send yours off to Steve Young ("Kiowa" Jones) now for an action job? Last I checked he has a waiting list several months long.

That is a nice looking 1892. Mine is stainless steel also In 45Colt. I was lucky that when I called Nate Kiowa Jones he happened to have one in stock already slicked up.

Why spend the money, I've seen enough vids on the 92 I could do it with my eyes closed and I don't even own one.

No, I wouldn't say that... but there is a pile of vid's and it isn't a complicated rifle too work on. Its a simple machine made during simpler times is all. So if you can pay at the pump and put gas in your ride, I doubt you would screw it up.

Good cowboy combo ,, yeah the biggest issue with them is the cast internal parts they they leave as cast . Some careful polish and deburr helps dramatically. Coils springs are stiffer than leafs.
