Rossi 92 help

I have a Rossi Ranch hand which is based on Rossi's 92 and need a little help. The cartridge stop doesn't seem to be working properly. There is a curved spring inside that actuates the stop. I am not sure how the sting goes. Looking at the drawing it apeers that the curve bows towards the inside of the gun. I am not sure how this would activate the finger that stops the cartridge. Even if the spring is reveresed it doesn't seem to activate the finger. Any help on this would be appreciated.

mine was like that at first. Did you lube it up real well before you used it for the first time? I found that it worked in pretty quickly. What caliber did you get?

Anyone else have a Rossi Ranch Hand?

Hey sarge, I have a .357 RH. I have a couple of other guns in .357 and reload so I figured it would make this cheap to play with. I didn't lube it, in fact it had quite a bit of lube everywhere. I did find my problem though. I had installed a spring kit and had some issues reassembling. It mainly took just walking away from it long enough to see what I did wrong. It works really well now. I have to take it to the range again and see how it works. I am not sold on he spring kit though. Some things were too loose and light for me. Next project is to slick up my Marlin 1895.

Why did you replace the springs? My trigger was very good right out of the box?

I never replace springs unless they are weak or broken. It usually leads to issues. Springs is not the cure for bad triggers.

Thought I'd try the spri g kit. Too much time on forums the cowboy action shooters seemed to like the kit for thier 92's. I ended up putting everything back to stock and it works great. I even got my loading gate to work alike better.

What problem will the spring kit solve? Better yet, what problems will it cause? If you are a CAS shooter go for the spring kit. If you are a hunter.............find something else to waste you money on.
