In a wild fit of logic, I called Rossi's service department to see if I could buy the lever from them. The technician who identified himself as a Taurus rep had no idea what I was talking about so I suggested he ask his manager. He then informed me that his manager said the they don't sell large loop levers for the 92. I asked how that could be when they advertise rifles with the large loop on their website and he said that the large loop lever could not be retrofitted as the guns with that lever are special built to take it. I politely told him to never mind.
I sent Steve (Steve's Gunz) an email and told him of my experience. He said (also politely) that they have no idea what they are talking about and to go ahead and buy the loop from Rossi since he had no inventory.
As I have put a scout scope on the rifle (old eyes), I think it would look silly with the large loop so have abandoned the idea.
How do those boys stay in business?

It looked more like the problem revolved around the acquisition of Rossi by Taurus. The guy on the phone said as much when he claimed nearly total ignorance of Rossi products.
The same is probably true of his manager. As such, I'll cut him a little slack.
My rifle seemed to work pretty well out of the box but, of course, the action was rough, springs too tight, and some pretty poor machining/fitting and an almost total lack of de-burring of drilled holes were evident once I got it apart.
A little filing and stoning along with a new spring kit left me with a rifle I can be proud of. One-finger operation is now smooth as silk. BTW, the worst drill burs were in the trigger section and what a difference fixing that made.
On the other hand, if your not handy or don't have the right tools and the Steve's Gunz video, you almost always have turn it over to a gunsmith for tuning which is almost your only choice for a lever gun in pistol calibers.
