Rossi has the model 92 in 357, I believe it's a side loader , I hear their nice shooters, but, it's not a Marlin !!That's what I was told about Winchester also Donn. I considered a Henry, but their tube load rather then side load. I want a side load. I figure if I have not heard anything by the end of the year, i'll probably pay a premium and buy one off Gunbroker.com.
The pre Remington's are selling way over blue book, their present value is about 4-600 $ over blue book!Exactly Marlindude. Its not a Marlin. My local gun shop has a Rossi 357 in stock. The fit and finish is very poor. Nothing consistent where the wood meets the metal.
I contacted Stevesgunz.com to get a price on one of their worked over Rossi's, but have yet to hear back from him. I'd still rather wait for a Marlin. Besides the quality difference, I think the Marlin will hold its value better in the long run.
And getting them back just as fast. My LGS had two in stock for a day, both came back within the week, niether would cycle a round, locked up on first ammo cycle, both were sent back to Remington. I hope that was just the odd pair and most will be better. We shall see.The 1894c in 357 mag
is currently in Production and Marlin is selling them faster than they can build them
