Need a rifle for a buckaroo


Recommended Posts

I need a rifle for my grandson. Something like a 92 in 38/357. I have a 73 but it's still too heavy for him to be comfortable.  Let me know what you have.

Buffalo,

I have a Rosi '92 in .38. The stock has been cut down and I added a bit to it so it fit me better and it has some work done on the action which is very smooth. It is somewhat picky about the length of the ammo.  It is my back up rifle and I haven't used it years so maybe I find it a good home.

Just a “Hey” to Buffalo Sam Peed!  Good to see you are still around!   Hope you and your kin can come south and shoot with us sometime!

Sam I have a 66 carbine that be a nice rifle for him 

Thanks for the offer but I'm afraid that's going to be a bit out of the budget.  We are hoping to stay in the $500 range.
