Trade my large loop for your standard loop

Postby squidsix » 01 Apr 2019 07

I have a large loop on my Rossi 92 .357 and would like to swap with someone for their standard loop lever.
Let me know.

If you don't have any luck here, touch base with Steve over at stevesgunz.com. He sells large loops, and might be interested in trading for yours.

I did that with my 16" .357 too. Traded with a feller on the Lever Action group on Facebook. My new standard lever was binding up on the carrier, took some careful grinding to get clearance, but it works great now. I'm much happier now! I'm a bench shooter, and that big loop was just too big to cycle on the bench, hit it every time.

I also do a lot of other monkeying about inside to tune them up, and smooth things out. I'm just kinda goofy that way. Once I figured out how to do it, I just can't help myself!

Now my lil' carbine is one John Wayne would be proud of! I think.....

I emailed Steve over at stevesguns. We will see what he says. In the meantime still looking.

I offered to trade here too, no takers. Thought that was odd.

I have hands the size of baseball mitts and was desperately searching for one a few years back. I finally realized that I'd need a dozen or more for different brands of lever actions I own. I gave up and learned to just keep 2 fingers inside the lever at all times. This necessitated adding a leather wrap to the lower part of the lever loop to cushion my fingers. Now, it's quite comfortable and natural for me and fast as well. No need or desire for large loops any longer. Two fingers are fine.
Aim small, miss small.

Yep. As long as your levergun is tuned right and runs smoothly, you shouldn't need to use more than 2 fingers. Which is why I chop down my hammer springs as much as I can. Just my opinion......
