Looks like the BrazTech Rossi R92s are back...

It looks like the BrazTech Rossi R92s are back. I am very fond of stainless steel and am thinking about getting one of the .357 rifles for a truck gun. I gather that historically quality/reliability have been spotty. If any of you have guidance on this...especially as it relates to the current production versions...I would be very interested as I consider a potential purchase.

My Braztech, a 16 inch .45, has been great and is much smoother than when I got it.
But like Curt says, you can't baby them when you work the lever.
I've had people shoot it and they don't work the lever fully, and that causes the lifter not to rise.
At the last gunshow I went to with Curt, a vendor had a new stainless .357.
I wanted it, but thought their price was a bit high ($650). I'll get one eventually.

The weakest part of the new Rossi/Braztechs is the stock finish. Mine was coming off after a few range trips. So I stripped it off, stained it a bit darker, and used Tru-Oil.
Before and after:
