    My dad has a Rossi model 92 (copy of the old Winchester 92) that he is thinking about selling. It`s in .357 mag, 20 inch barrel. Bought new in the early 90s. Perfect condition, never fired.
    What would be a fair price to ask?

    The Puma and Rossi are nearly identical; around here in like new they're going in $400-425 ballpark. If you've got alot of CASS shooters in the area, then you may get a little more.

    I bought a .44 mag Rossi model 92 brand new for $450 just a few months ago. I'd think that used would be a bit less than $400 unless the quality has changed since the '90s...

    400 is about right, and it's also a purty good profit. I bought my first one, in the late 90s, and paid 249, brand new.

    The last new one I saw for sale locally was $429. Same configuration, .357 in a blued, 20 inch round barrel. The octagonal barrels seem to run a little more.

    My Rossi Puma 92 in .357 Mag was made before the Taurus takeover and doesn't have the silly safety on the receiver.

    The barrel length on mine is 16" and the gun weighs 4.8 pounds.

    Nice, light & fast for deer hunting out to 100 yards.

    Can't see lugging around an 8.5 pound piece of artillery with a 24" octagonal barrel chambered for a small pistol caliber.

    That'd be kinda stupid like having a puny 4 cylinder in a Lincoln Continental.

    If I'm going to lug 8.5 pounds of steel through the brush it's going to be chambered for .45-70 or .450 Marlin.

    Different folks have different opinions.

    I've got a 73 Winchester rifle, 24" octagonal barrel, that weighs in around 9 pounds, in 44/40. I see nothing stupid about it.

    Got two 92 rifles - one 24" round barrel in 32/20 and one 24" octagonal in 38/40. See nothing stupid about them either.

    Also got several 92 carbines. Much smaller, much lighter. Enjoy them also.

    I don't see anything stupid about the guns you mentioned.

    At least my head doesn't.

    My shoulders vehemently disagree.

    These 3 score + 2 year old shoulders complain a lot "louder" after lugging a 9 pound gun through the tag alders all day as opposed to a < 6 pound gun.

    Those 24" barrels like to reach out and make friends with every branch and switch in the bush, especially the ones hanging heavy with rain, dew or snow much more so than the 16" or 20" barrels.
