I just paid about $850 for a Henry .44 Mag side gate.@Mikej I have a Rossi 92 in .38/.357 on backorder from my distributor. Henry and Rossi lever guns are all backordered from what I can see. Very frustrating.
I previously had a Winchester 94 in 30-30, but this will be my first Rossi. I ordered it sight-unseen.. The Rossi is the most affordable Winchester 92 clone I could find. I've heard about the fit and finish being rough, but I figure probably nothing I can't polish or upgrade. An actual Winchester lever gun in .38/.357 would be easily over $1000 at this point.
It was a long wait.
Beautiful rifle, though.
