I have been wanting a lever action .357 mag for about 6 months now. I finally saw a new Rossi model 92, blued, with 20 inch barrel at a gunshop yesterday that I don't go to too often. I am a longtime friend of the gunsmith there ( I am also a gunsmith), and I happened to be dealing with him on this purchase.

The Rossi was marked $396+tax. I decided to take an old USGI Match .45 slide with me as trading material to maybe knock off $50-$75 off of the price. When I got there he showed me a bunch of confiscated guns that he purchased from a PD. There was a Star Super 9mm Largo in the lot that I decided I might want, so I asked him what he would take for it and the Rossi if I traded the slide in too.

He took $415 cash (and the slide) tax and all for the Star Super 9mm AND the Rossi!!! The Star Supers trade for around $200 here so I think I got a pretty good deal!

I came home and converted the Star to fire .38 Super, a pretty easy conversion.

Be careful about bragging on Arfcom about a deal you got on a gun. When I posted about getting this immaculate (only 500 rounds or so) Glock 19 gen III for $225 guys were calling me a troll, calling bs on me, etc. Can you blame them really?

Sorry, no pics.


BTW, this is my first lever action! That's kind of odd since I have owned lots (150-200) guns through the years.
