info from one of my favorite gun shops goes like this.....
.
Rossi has a so-so reputation with some problems that included returning the gun to the manufacturer



Pedersoli had/has a few minor problems


last I heard there was a Rossi gun owners board on the net & numerous issues are/were discussed

Had a 44 Rem. magnum M92 clone some years ago that was pretty well made, but forget now who actually made it. Something changed from the old Rossi "Puma" lever guns that were once made in Brazil, because the one I had said it was imported by Legacy Arms, or some such source.

It was not a true copy of the M92 Winchester, because I had an original M92. Close, but no cigar.

Read an article about this Puma haggle a few years ago, forget now what the gist was. They may now be made by Pedersoli?

Of all the repro lever guns I've looked at, Uberti seems to have the nicest ones. Have had two Uberti Colt SAA clones, both very nice firearms.

I own two Rossi M92's, one in 44mag, and one in 357 mag, I am very happy with both,however I am a reloader and a cast bullet shooter,so I cant comment on the use of factory fodder. The actions from the factory could use some smoothing up but not necessary for proper function. Both of mine are Ok and will get better the more you shoot them. There have been reports of issues with fit and finish and chambering problems,however mine have none of that, I did re-finish the stock on the 44, not because it needed it but just because I wanted a different look.


Go here and then make up your mind, You could not seperate me from mine.

The 44 mag Legacy Arms "Puma" I had was a "deluxe" version: 24" octagon barrel; color case receiver, butt plate and lever; very nice wood. It was also very accurate, w/the same 200gr XTP loads I shoot in my M629 S&W.

Sold it to a member here, but only because I'd finally found the Winchester M64 that I'd been looking for. Had five other lever rifles at the time, so the 44 mag became expendable.

Fit/finish/function were all very good on my 44 mag. Tad heavy, was my only grumble, but that's expected with a long, heavy barrel. OTOH, being a bit heavy on the front end usually makes for better offhand shooting. At least for me?

Take a look at what Uberti or Navy Arms has to offer. Bit pricey, probably worth it?
