    Would polishing the feed ramp help 357 rounds cycling?

    I have not looked at replacing the safety switch with a button but you can search for Button Style Safety Replacement Plug and that will take you to stevesgunz. I have not delt with him but there are some nice looing replacement parts there.

    Hi there This vid was a huge help putting my 44mag back together but I ran into 1 problem at the end, the action works great except when I insert and tighten the BOLT PIN STOP SCREW it jams my action from working I have tried tightning it with the bolt open/closed but makes no difference, am I missing something simple and could you please give me some advice? Thanks

    I bought this kit after seeing it here. It’s the best $30 I think I’ve ever spent. It’s like an entirely different rifle. Smooth as butter. Cycles like nothin’. This is my second M92. I tried the filing and sanding and all that on my first one with no difference. Put in these springs and holy smokes! You’re doing yourself no favors without them. Drops the cases at your feet. Trigger break is right now. VERY LIGHT. The lever spring seems a little light. May or may not put stock one back in.

    I clipped the ejector spring just last night. Made lock-up much easier, but I think I’m going to get the kit now that I know where to find it. Thanks for the video and some of the tips (like putting the lever together outside of the gun)!

    Why does one want to replace all these springs?

  7. Bob Kronenwetter on January 2, 2023 at 1:11 am

    I got my safety plug from Steve’s Gunz and you don’t even have to take the bolt out of the gun to put his smooth finished plug in place of the safety you got now

    Good video! Thanks for the info.

    you sound like you could do the heath ledger joker voice really well..

  10. David Prokity on January 2, 2023 at 1:14 am

    Looks like the pin on the bolt is not seated all the way in. Remove the screw, close the action, use a punch to drive the pin in further and put the screw back in. If you drove the bolt pin in too far there is a hole on the other side to drive it back toward the screw. Leave the screw in if you have to drive it back from the other side.

  11. Tracey Terrill on January 2, 2023 at 1:15 am

    Is there any way to remove the stupid safety on top of the bolt?? I think safety’s on hammer guns are a waste of steel!

  12. rick owens on January 2, 2023 at 1:15 am

    well done gunsmythy. u rehearsed so no waste of our  time, no big egospeak and your practice shows. clear, concise and seems accurate to me.  waiting for my 92-50003 to arrive  so I can try this. will buy kit from brownells due 2u. Thank You, Sir

    Smurfs and guns…..is that a good idea

  14. alphahr on January 2, 2023 at 1:20 am

    This spring kit was mentioned in another forum for the Rossi Ranch Hand, although I do not think the 1892 rifle and the Ranch Hand receivers are dimensionally the same. To your knowledge, is this true?

  15. Stuart Schwartz on January 2, 2023 at 1:20 am

    I just finished installing this kit in my 38sp/357mag Ranch Hand. Everything fit like a charm. I had some trouble getting the ejector spring back into place but I think that’ll be the case for all 92s. My complaint so far (a number of other folks online have mentioned the same thing) is that the lever retention spring is a bit soft; the large loop lever can pop open a little at any time; I may swap that sprint back. If I don’t add updates, go ahead and assume everything went well at the range 🙂

  16. KitCarrera108 on January 2, 2023 at 1:20 am

    Great video! Do you work on other people’s guns for a fee? I would like to have the springs installed and get an action job (i.e. smoothing and polishing internals). Thanks.

  17. cisforcraig on January 2, 2023 at 1:21 am

    Thank you for your help. Major improvement. Resulted in a 1.75# trigger pull for me. Perfect!
    Thanks again!

  18. David Prokity on January 2, 2023 at 1:21 am

    You are welcome. Helping you is why I make these videos.

  19. howard2374 on January 2, 2023 at 1:24 am

    On notably a 10/22 ‘slicking video’ they talk about polishing the ‘machine marks’ to allow the bolt to travel easier (less friction and not so rough). I did that and it helped a lot. So, while cleaning the rifle, I took the opportunity to look for ‘rough spots’ and with a medium diamond file to knock down the burrs, I then used 600 grit sandpaper to polish a little. Go easy. You can always take more off later, and you cannot get replacement parts from Rossi or Numerich!

  20. howard2374 on January 2, 2023 at 1:25 am

    BTW, the feed ramps for the 357 & the 44 have slightly different ramps. The 357 has a slight curve up on the left side while the 44 is pretty flat. I presume the curve is there to help the smaller round get into the chamber.

  21. Henry Harle on January 2, 2023 at 1:27 am

    Just got a 92 today and the actiion is a little ruff. Easy to cock but not smooth. Would like to slick it up alittle. Does anyone know of a vid on giving a little polish to the action or is it better to send it to a gunsmith for that kind of work

  22. H. 19 on January 2, 2023 at 1:28 am

    I cant`t imagine, how to put in the new ejector spring at 4:20, it`s simply to long and a pain in the ass to fix it with the collar, so i gave up….

  23. howard2374 on January 2, 2023 at 1:30 am

    First, thank you very much for this video, David. I review it prior to disassembling my M92 for cleaning. (I have a 357 & a 44.) I put the stock hammer spring back in because I was having some ‘non-fires’ using the kit’s hammer spring. When I did the 44 I did not replace the stock hammer spring. On the kit’s trigger spring, I gently (gently) filed off the edges on the tips that ride on the trigger flap.

  24. Mårten Wigardt on January 2, 2023 at 1:31 am

    The improvement of the action is mindboggling. It’s as smooth as a baby’s behind, if that expression is applicable here. The video was of enormous help! Thanks you, David!

  25. D Le on January 2, 2023 at 1:31 am

    thank god. finally someone with an excelent disassembly video for the rossi 92. I can finally try taking it apart. If you could, would you make a disassembly video step by step?

  26. oldcutler100 on January 2, 2023 at 1:34 am

    My Rossi 92 is giving me a lot of problems. The magazine tube keeps moving forward and I can’t load ammo from the side. This is the third time i have taken it to the gunsmith.

  27. Rob Johnson on January 2, 2023 at 1:35 am

    Why put the ejector in, then struggle with putting the spring and collar on instead of just putting the whole thing in with the spring and collar already on the shaft? At that point, insert the dummy round under the extractor claw, push down to compress the ejector spring and, while holding the case in place, slide the bolt into place partially chambering the dummy round or empty case, and install the lever and pin instead of putting the pin in first to hold it together, removing the dummy round, sliding the bolt in, removing the pin, installing the lever and reinstalling the pin. Using your method, if the bolt is withdrawn more than about 1/8" after removing the pin, the ejector slips out and normally turns to one side making it extremely hard to get back in without removing it and reinstalling into the bolt again. I don’t think the lever can even be installed without withdrawing the bolt past the point where the ejector slips out. Your method seems to add three unnecessarily difficult steps.

    Thanks for these REAL good Video.
    You save my gun

  29. Jamie S on January 2, 2023 at 1:42 am

    Thank-you. God video!.

  30. Vince Lok on January 2, 2023 at 1:42 am

    Wow, I gotta get that Tipton vise! Looks handy!

  31. David Prokity on January 2, 2023 at 1:45 am

    I have not worked on guns for a fee. Just cars, lawn mowers, weed eaters, and some house work like water heaters, heat pumps, and minor plumbing. the one and only place I know that does this, and is a Rossi specialist Steve Young in Port Arthur, TX. I do not know him or his work and I have never bought anything from him. His web site is stevesgunz(dot)com.

  32. howard2374 on January 2, 2023 at 1:46 am

    When I was cleaning my 357 I removed the feed ramp (2 screws and it pretty well drops out) and polished the front tip that blocks the ‘in coming rounds’ (600 grit sandpaper), the very upper top of the ramp which is tilted a tad, and the ramp itself (makes it easier to see in the bottom of the housing). Watch out for the ball detent on the left (port) side when re-installing it. I used a small screwdriver to depress it as I slid the feed ramp back into place.

  33. San Jose on January 2, 2023 at 1:46 am

    What you did in 15 seconds took me 2 hours. Nice video by the way.

  34. David Prokity on January 2, 2023 at 1:54 am

    After some time using these springs, the only reason to install them is for cowboy action shooting. For real hunting or shooting anything other than paper, keep it stock. May be may be change the ejector spring for an easier lock up and an ejection that throws the brass at your feet instead of into the next county.

  35. David Prokity on January 2, 2023 at 1:54 am

    Excellent, The plug is on my wish list. You should make a video of the install.

  36. kwarnisplayer on January 2, 2023 at 1:54 am

    What’s the reason for doing installing this spring kit? I’m considering buying a R92 Carbine in .357.

  37. Stuart Schwartz on January 2, 2023 at 1:55 am

    As a follow up: I installed the main spring, trigger spring, and ejector spring from this kit, but left the original lever retention spring (the heavier/large-loop lever kept popping open w/ the soft spring.) The Ranch Hand feels great at the range. It fired every time, rounds fed perfectly, and brass landed a few feet away at the furthest. This is a great kit and the video made installation much less intimidating.

  38. skiforce75 on January 2, 2023 at 1:56 am

    Do your carrier screws free spin or can you actually tighten them up? Mine engage the threads but seem to fall below them once they are all the way down. My hammer screw does this too. Seems wrong to me. Nothing feels cross threaded or anything.

  39. Bob Kronenwetter on January 2, 2023 at 1:57 am

    I decided to put the spring kit in you did but when I knocked the bolt pin out now the action won’t open and now I can’t get the pin back in

  40. LouB on January 2, 2023 at 1:58 am

    And the ejection is not longer into low orbit like it was with the standard ejector spring.
    Standard spring makes brass retrieval an issue looking for it everywhere.

  41. Mark Chester on January 2, 2023 at 1:59 am

    I was really looking forward to seeing this as an interesting project for my rifle. Unfortunately this was a little too edited with some of the know how missing. Spoiled what could have been a really helpful instructional video

  42. Will Blackwell on January 2, 2023 at 1:59 am

    Just picked up my 92. Anyone else have problems loading rounds into the magazine tube? Very tight fit.
