  1. The thread mentions a timing issue. A professional would be able to tell me for sure. A check of the different Rossi forums addresses my particular issue, however, I can eliminate all of the solutions offered. Fixing a timing problem is way beyond my skill level. Thanks for the suggestions!
  2. A little bit of a back story. When I bought the gun, I brought it home and tested it using .38 Special snap caps. The gun cycled flawlessly several dozen times but the action was very stiff. While doing that, I noticed that the interior of the receiver was covered with metal shavings left over from the machining process. I saw a video on YouTube on the disassembly and assembly of the rifle. I took it apart, cleaned it, and reassembled it. The action is much smoother now. Unfortunately, that's when I started having problems. The barrel is stamped ".38 Special/.357 Magnum" so it should feed both. The gun has never been fired.
  3. Can anyone recommend a gunsmith that knows their way around a lever gun? The gun is a Rossi .357. I want to ship it to the Rossi facility in Bainsbridge, GA but, on three different occasions, I've spent 30 minutes or more on the phone waiting to talk to someone regarding the procedure to ship it back for repair. The issue is when cycling the action, rounds 3 and 4 come out of the tube together and are laying the carrier. And, of course, neither will feed into the breech. This happens again with rounds 6 and 7. I thought it might be the cartridge stop but that seems ok. Spring is working fine. I gave the gun a thorough cleaning but same result. Any ideas? I'm in south Jersey.
  4. And when Republicans win in 2024, you can start up "Underground Waterproof Gun Storage Cabinet Recovery Systems LLC"
  5. The nearest PX that stocks ammo is located at Fort Belvoir. A clerk there told me they don't ship any ammo of any type. You must buy in person. The same story at Fort Lee.
  6. Did you get a notification that your background check was complete? The state police barracks that I use takes 3 1/2 to 4 months to process assuming your fingerprints are already on file.
  7. Do you mean 50 cal ammo boxes?
  8. Check the link below. US Law Shield is good in NJ. The reason is it is NOT insurance. It is a legal defense fund. I also have Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network. That gives me coverage in CT. https://www.concealedcarry.com/self-defense-gun-owner-insurance-programs-compared/
  9. Virginia. I have a Non-Resident Permit and frequently there on business.
  10. My permits are handled by a State Police barracks. I've been told, time and again, that the holdup is at the Firearms Investigation Unit at State Police HQ in West Trenton, not at the barracks. Before FARS, I would wait 5 1/2 months for permits. With FARS, its 3 1/2 months. The E permits should cut out the time the paper permit sits in West Trenton waiting for someone at the barracks to pick it up. Could be one or two days or as long as ten days. Then the barracks commander has to sign them. And that could take a few days as well.
  11. Greetings, welcome to the forum.
  12. Very nice! Best of luck to you using it...........and finding ammo for it
  13. You're right, if the previous owner didn't take care of the vehicle, over 100k might be a nightmare. I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee with over 250k miles. Runs great, no major (or minor) problems. If your job takes you out in all kinds of weather, I'd recommend a Jeep. But that's just me.
  14. My sister used Dr. Pirelli's services. Dr Pirelli is not only a psychologist but an M.D. as well. For $2,500, you are personally evaluated by him or someone on his staff. That evaluation takes about 3 1/2 hours. In addition, they interview friends and family. Finally, you will receive a comprehensive report with a upfront summary that, in my sister's case, was 12 pages. When submitting it to the PD, the detective commented that the report was detailed and well-written.
