Lately I've developed a craving for a case hardened lever action. It's primary function will be as another wall hanger.
I'm leaning toward the Navy Arms '92's as advertised in Gun List at about $345. Does anyone know if these are manufactured by Rossie? And has anyone actually seen one in the case hardened finish? If so how does the case hardening compare to the 1873 Italian copies?

Yes, Navy Arms' Winchester '92 replicas are being made by Rossi. Rossi confirms this in the FAQ on their web page: www.rossiusa.com .

Thank ya kindly Daniel. I'll check out their web site and see if it's available direct from them as opposed to ordering it from NA. To be honest I'm not a real fan of the Rossi. But as I said it is primarily intended as a wall hanger. Have you actually seen one to comment on the finish?

No, I'm afraid that I haven't seen any of the Navy Arms rifles in my area yet. So far, I don't think BrazTech (Rossi's new importer) will be bringing in the '92 carbines and rifles.

Gunslinger, I got one of the older Rossi 92,s
like it very much, but if ya looking for a case color replica, better stick to the 73's, cause
I don't think the 92's came that way.

Got an older 92 Rossi myself. Not the smoothest lever gun you'll ever shoot, but reasonable. It was called the "Puma" at the time, so I have to hide the silly little puma-head on the left side of the receiver from my shooting buddies. Outside of that, it's OK.

You're just up the road a piece from Bass Pro. Have you checked to see if they have one? They have a generous selection of longarms on site.

Good thinking fal, I hadn't thought of them. I just want to look at one to see if they have nice case colors. You know......another toy.
I'll check them out thanks.
