Wrapping large lever loop - Who dood it and how?

Hi folks!

I own a M92 Rossi 16 inch carbine with a large loop. I've tried paracord lacing it ... it slips. I tried tying a piece of the cord to the trigger guard, next to where the loop begins ... not good for trigger squeeze.

So, I ask all of you:
"Has anyone successfully wrapped their large lever loop, and how did you accomplish that?"

I've not wrapped a large loop, but I did sew on a leather one on my Marlin 1895 45-70. Works great. I used calf leather and synthetic sinew.

As a SASS/cowboy shooter, I don't care for the lever. Looks cool.

My question would be why wrap? we wrap our levers for comfort because of the speed we operate the lever. With my long fingers, I place my thumb on the tang and simply flick my fingers as fast as I can.

When you fire yours, it seems the easy way would be to catch the lever with your thumb on the way down and bring it back up with all fingers under the lever. If you aare not talking speed.......why wrap it. Unless it is "just because"........


Deuce is a very nice young feller from up north around Michigan.


Jimmy Spurs is one of two gunsmiths that I would use.

FYI, I have heard they can rust under the wrap, especially if wrapped with leather.

I suppose if you got it soaking wet and did not dry it out fast it would rust. But it will rust with paracord or anything else that holds moisture. Most lever guards are leather where they are snapped or wrapped. The one with snaps would be the answer to the rust but they do not provide much comfort in rapid fire.

The chamois wrap would greatly benefit those with 94s and 92s that do not have an action job. They require some force to cycle and the knuckles pay for it. If I hunted with a 92 or 94, I would send it to Steve's Guns (Nate Kiowa Jones) for an action job. Talk about easy to operate.
