It seems I may have been bitten by the .45 Long Colt bug. I have fought off the urge to have one for many years being content with the 44 Mag and .357 Mag Marlin 1894's.
I can forsee a need to have a carbine in that caliber in the future. I was talking to a friend who has a Winchester trapper in 45 LC and he suggested a Rossi 16" 45 LC since I had no desire to spend mega bucks for a winchester and I want a 16" barrel. He thinks they are a solid if not cheap looking gun that is a little rough but function fine and seem to hold up OK as well.
Does anyone have a Rossi 92 and if so, what do you think of them as a 4 wheeler/snow machine/airplane gun?? Will they stand up to pretty hot 45 LC loads or should I be looking for a Marlin 1894?
