It would take a lot more than a barrel liner to get this thing working again and it's just not worth the expense.

I was mostly just kidding.  Some of the folks on here could probably build the darn thing from scratch.

Oh I could tear it down and completely rebuild it if I had the funds to do so. I'm sure it would be a good shooter if I did but it would always look like crap and wouldn't be worth the expense. It might even be possible to just tear it all down and clean it up and put it back together and shoot it which I did intend to do when I first found it. Back then I could have done it but all my free time went to running all over the place digging holes with my buddy. Now I don't have the inclination.

I do believe there is a market for "relic" firearms now.

There is but civil war guns bring the best prices. Fully loaded ones bring more than empty ones but revolvers that only have a few rounds left with cocked hammers bring the most

Getting back to the Rossi '92s, my early rifles also had brass magazine followers. This new one came with a plastic one. Sure, it worked but it just doesn't seem right.  (jh I made a brass one!

Mine was steel.

Yeah, guess mine were steel too instead of brass. You know how it is when you get older..... :-[

Unfortunately I do but it beats the alternative.

I know it's a stretch , I was looking for a Rossi '92 for about a year but never found one that was 'reasonably' priced. I finally bought a Chiappa 1892 Takedown in 45LC privately, came with original box , manual etc - guy I bought it from said he'd only fired 10 rounds through it and then it sat in his safe. I've had it out a couple of times and I really like it.

Yep, got it for what's a pretty good price around here , roughly $685.00USD

Nice score on the 92 Retreever. Those Chiappa guns are supposed to be very nice quality. And you got it for a really great price too.

I have never seen a "live" Chiappa gun, but I know they make several different guns.

My 53 Enfield was made by Chiappa. If a gun says made by ArmiSport it's Chiappa. Armsport is an importer.
