1861 ArmiSport Springfield vs. Rossi .357 Model 92

I am currently debating whether to purchase either a 1861 Armi Sport Springfield or a .357 Rossi Model 92. I have long wanted both firearms; and just sold a gun; so I have $650 to use for a purchase. I love Civil War history and already have a Colt Dragoon and 58 Remington. However, I have often thought about trying to get a reproduction Springfield.

On the other hand; I can spend less money and get another dream gun;
.357 Model 92 lever action.

Just curious about any feedback from you folks about my delima of indecision. It is hard when you only have enough cash to get one gun; when you would like to get two.

I have a Marlin 1894C and I love it. I have fired a Rossi and they are really nice too. I haven't gotten to play with a Springfield yet. I may be biased toward the .357 lever just because it's so convenient for me, since I already handload for my GP-100. It's handy have a handgun and a rifle both on the same diet.

I have a P53 Enfield and a Rossi 92 in 44-40. Both are a blast and a half. Get the Springfield now. The 92 will be easier to fund later on. Look around if you don't mind used and maybe you can get both.
