    Have you looked at the Skinner sight that replaces the safety?

    One very important point ! Neither of mine will run RP brass !
    Which is weird since they will both feed 2 Schofields out of the magazine . Neither will except more than 2 into the mag .

    They will feed PMC, FC , Starline , Win , GFL and Fiocchi but not Rem , not even nickle .
    In the time of darkest defeat,our victory may be nearest. Wm. McKinley.

    About that rally point, the soap and mail boxes fall on blind eyes and deaf ears,the ballot box is manipulated,it would seem we are fast running out options....

    Interesting - suggests Remington has something larger then other makers... have you checked out
    dimensions (rim would be my thought)

    Artful
    The Schofield has a much wider .....larger dia rim than the Colts . I'm told that with sufficient polish of the feed slots and related points that it can be mitigated to a minor studder vs a flip rattle single feed loose jam situation . I believe Buckshot had/has a similar bug in his also .

    I have a friend with an SS example in 38/357 that hangs up on the case mouth with 357 . Nickle cases help but it is still double bump lever action to feed . 38s feed like greased glass as fast as you can run the lever ...... I tried some polish and lap but it needs more .

    It seems all Rossi 92s sold in Australia are sans safety.

    Nice - another advantage you have - are they still importing the 7.62x39 SMLE lookalikes from Vietnam?

    That was an Australian company. The rifles were assembed using stocks of No.4 parts andd newly manufactured parts apparently, with Vietnamese Teak stocks. They were a tad heavy and had chrome lined bores.

    From what I heard (I saw a couple at the range, but never handled or fired them) some of the new parts were not quite milspec and they missed out on supplying the Canadian Rangers, which was a nail in the coffin and the company just up and disappeared. I made extensive enquiries on behalf of some American friends with no result, which is a shame, by the time I could afford one, they were gone.

    The ones I saw were all 308Wins as the most interest was shown by Military Discipline Shooters here and as the main match went to 300mtrs the 7.62x39 was struggling at that range. They also shot a side match at 500mtrs which was a cake walk for the 308Win. It is a shame they never appeared in 223 they would have walked out the door of the gun shops.

    I'd never scope a rifle like this. I do think the receiver sight would add enough to the sight radius would make a good difference.

    I had to remove the original sight and put this 2X pistol scope on my 44 for now. It shot well at 50 yds with 265 gr semi's but sits too high for a cheek weld. Click image for larger version.

    A regular Williams 5D for the top eject 94 will work mounted on the RIGHT side with the windage slide reversed. I've done it on our .357 but put it back on my 94 and put a cool Dockendorff rear on the Rossi. I'm happy with both but the Rossi is more accurate than the Winchester to 100 yards. Embarrassing for the vaunted Pre64 30-30!

    The hype of the Pre-64 is mostly just that - Hype
    People look at my Post 64 Model 70 and tell me how great their
    Pre-64 Model 70 shoots - and then in side by side test - it fails to beat my Post-64
    That's why I choose it to become my swap barrel rifle.

    By the way, that is a standard TC Contender scope base under the Leupold.

    MOst of the advantages of the pre 64s have to do with the feel good factor and providing you with bragging rights. I've owned three pre 64s over the years and two post 64s, there wasn't much in it. Ann my mate's, mega rough, impressed checkering Model 70, which looks like it is a 1965 made one, shots like a house on fire, but looks awful.

    That said, they are nice though.

    My Rossi 45 loves the Lee 255 rf with 9gr of Unique. I'm using acww/pure lead, 50/50, in hopes of some expansion. It also likes ~250gr cast with 17gr of Alliant 2400. Either load should do the trick at 100 yards.
