Just picked up a new Rossie r92 and so far, I'm pretty pleased. Haven't had a chance to fire it yet but the action is very smooth compared to new lever guns I've had in the past. One problem, though. I tried to remove the buttstock to sluice out the internals and it is so tight I can't get it off. Any suggestions on how to remedy this?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

They can be tight, that’s for sure! You can try and wrap multiple layers of a towel around the wrist of the stock, then gently striking to stock where the wrist becomes the cheek portion of the stock with a heavy soft mallet. Once it moves a bit, it can be pulled off, with a bit of effort.

I hope I described that in a way that makes sense…..

Welcome to the family Willie !
Yes they are nice rifles / carbines compared to the price of many others. But watch out they do multiply !
I think when the stock is still wet with finish it gets slapped together.
