I have a Rossi in 38/357 and it is not as smooth as the older Marlins and Winchesters. Mine works fine but If you are looking for smooth and perfect fit I think you may be a bit disappointed.
I guess you get what you pay for... unfortunately there is no such thing as a 357 magnum lever gun made in America any more. (as far as I know)
