Today's gun picture also comes to us courtesy of my red-headed blog stepchild Michael W:
That's a Rossi 92, the same model I am currently reviewing but in the carbine configuration. Michael W. has added a few tricks and tweaks to this particular rifle, and has shared some of his secrets with me for the 92 I have once I'm done with the review (I don't think it is fair to review a firearm outside of its natural state unless the tweaks are what the review is about).
Now, I will admit to being an unabashed fan of the lever action rifle - I own three - and the 92 is no slouch right out of the box. It's a somewhat unfair comparison to put the brand-y new Rossi against either of my Marlins - both are many years old and have been broken in well, so they both function like clockwork. I can see the 92 settling into the same pattern down the road - and even with current ammo prices, .38 Special isn't terribly expensive to shoot.
Boy, Rossi sure makes some purty rifles, don't they?
That is all.
