I was able to score a JM Marlin Cowboy Limited in .357 Magnum / .38 Special that someone was selling as part of an estate sale so, no more waiting for the Henry side loading gate.

I have a Rossi and Golden Boy in .357. The Golden Boy is a beautiful rifle, but the Rossi is all business. Many folks lift their nose at the Rossi lever gun due to the subpar line of pistols. They are simple and well made. Very nice work guns for the money.

Agreed. I've never owed a Rossi handgun. The best pattering shotgun I've owned was a Rossi single shot.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy one of their lever actions. They aren't the Hi Points of the industry like some folks think.

My 1892 clone is a Rossi in 45 Colt. It operated just fine out of the box. I chose to take it apart and clean up the rough edges, and refinish the stock. I didn't do anything that a few thousand rounds downrange wouldn't have done eventually. It's a strong, reasonably accurate, utterly reliable rifle.

My only complaint is coming from a reloader, the chamber is cut a bit on the large side, requiring the brass to really be worked during resizing.

I'll give you a crisp $100 bill for that Spencer rifle.

I put a few rounds (10 or so) through the new Marlin at 50 yds the other evening. It was fairly accurate, only about an inch left outta box. Its still real stiff and I might see some potential work done on the action.

I had pre-ordered a leather check pad with a nice cushion and 8 round holder for the stock. It turned out to be a good idea or I would've been eating tobacco juice. Like I said 10 rds or so.

Whoever said the 325 gr Hornady's would tear up meat aint bullshitting. I bout cut a tree in two.

I still need to order the sling and scope.

I sent my Rolling Block to Lee Shaver earlier this year for a trigger job and new front sight and finally got to shoot it today. It is MUCH easier to shoot. Less than one inch group at 50 yards and palm-sized groups at 200 yards with iron sights from the bench.

If you have a single shot rifle and need some work done on it, I highly recommend Lee Shaver.
