I am in search of a 1892 conversion to .357. I know sometimes these can be project guns and are often times used heavily  this is exactly what I am looking for. Thanks

Rossi made a pretty decent copy, fun to shoot without the hassle or need to sacrifice a Winchester.

Hi Guys,

This is my first post I am new here but I found this post interesting . In regard to a .357 converted 1892 Hickok45 details one on his YouTube channel. I have to admit the 92 is one of my favorite Winchester rifles and .357 at least to me is almost a do all cartridge. Many years ago in the early 80’s I saw one that had been converted to .357 for sale at a gun show. That rifle was the pits worn out and the stock was beat up. The barrel was either sleeved or re-bored I don’t remember. At the time it was going for $150 and I was temped. A gun dealer friend of mine at that show talked me out of it said you’d be better off spending a little more and getting one in original shape. The attraction for me was the caliber and it being in a 92 made it all the more attractive. 

I have a pretty good collection now of original 1892’s but nothing in .357. But a few years ago I was at a local gun shop with my wife and she picked up one of those Rossi carbines in do you believe it! 357!  She liked its size and the fact that she could shoot 38’s in it so that rifle became her birthday present. Its not a Winchester but it is a levergun in a great caliber. I agree with TxGunNut its a pretty good option without sacificing an original.

Often the converted originals have feeding issues.   If you find one, try and test it before buying.
