Just saw a new Navy Arms '92 rifle. All I can say is WOW!! 20" octagon barrel with front sight with brass bead on top and rear sight with tall buckhorn relief. Case hardening color on receiver "much improved" over previous older guns. Beautiful walnut wood stock with deep dark grains. My eyes almost popped out. Is this a Rossi product? Way to go Navy Arms for demanding a quality product. These new guns sure to sell!

Howdy Ned,

These are Rossi products,obviously with much baby-sitting from Navy Arms. The original Rossi rifles were affordable,but often needed extra work to make them smooth and reliable,thus driving up the price. The Navy Arms guns are more expensive,but the ones I've seen don't need any extra work,and they do look much better than the Rossi guns.

Bellicose Bill
