Magazine plug for Rossi lever gun

Does anyone make a mag plug for the Rossit .357 mag lever action?

I was thinking of making my own if I used it to hunt deer. (If I decide to hunt in Ohio - 3 round limit)

I don't know of anyone that makes one.

The lightest plug that won't cause issues (like attracting moisture or causing corrosion) will likely be a piece of plastic rod or brass tubing.
Measure before you buy anything, but 0.375" (3/8") or 0.312" (5/16") diameter tubing or rod should fit inside the magazine spring.

Thanks, I saw one video where someone cut a piece from a plastic coat hanger. I will probably try that.

Plastic coat hanger maybe, but it sounds like something that might bow to the side a bit too easily.
Why not go to the local home improvement or hobby store and pick up a wooden dowel?

4thPoint, good point. I have several dowel rods in various diameters already. I will just have to see which works best in the Rossi mag tube.

Thanks,

No plug will be necessary for pistol caliber rifle in Ohio. When addressing that issue, they realized that it would not be practical. You will have a 3 round limit you can put in the gun, but the magazine does not need to be plugged.
