What spares do you keep for you Rossi 92's

Fellas, long term what wears out fastest on Rossi 92's or what do you like to have on hand. Times like these it gets you thinking about the ability to maintiain guns long term. Interested to hear opinions.

Fellas another question from a dumb soldier here with no metalwork knowledge. What is the parts exchangeability between a blued and stainless Rossi? How much of each rifles spares can support the other. Can both metals come into contact with each on the same firearm long term?

You could start with the firing pin, ejector, ejector collar, extractor, and then any other small parts you might accidentally lose under the workbench when taking the gun apart.

stainless steel next to carbon steel should not be a problem. This is particularly true if they are assembled with grease, oil or thread locker. Thread locker CAN be a problem for disassembly and if you suspect a screw might have been installed with a thread lock compound you may want to heat the screw with a soldering iron before you attempt removal. WARNING stainless steel threads on both fasteners are known to cold weld under very light pressure.

The ejector, ejector collar and the firing pin are the majority of broken parts reports outside of problems with stripped screws. You shouldn't really NEED spares though. The percentage of people having problems with broken parts is probably larger on the Rossi than with a Winchester for example but the percentage is still pretty small.

Thanks as well Keeparms.

What I am thinking of doing is getting a backup gun as well.

Definitely the ejector, the spring on those is WAY too strong for it, and the ejectors aren't very beefy. First thing I do is immediately replace that spring with one of these.

Thanks Rondog,I bought some.

And I just lined up a new 20" Stainless Rossi 1892. Took some ringing about to find one, they are scarce at the moment.

Usually I spend some time researching models before buying but I had to move on it.

Though its after the horse has bolted, any thoughts on these 20" stainless CBC versions. Is it a case of the usual Rossi strength and mild roughness? No glaring quality issues or recalls for this specific configuration?
