Rossi 92 .44mag buttstock options...

JasonMPDJasonMPD Senior MemberPosts: 6,139 Senior Member
I have an older Interarms imported Rossi Model 92 .44mag. It really is a superb gun in all regards except one: the curved butt plate. Just plain "ouch" with my favorite full-house 300gr load.

Does anyone that y'all know of sell a thick leather cover for curved butt plates? Or another option to remedy my issue?

    A buddy of mine rubber cemented Leather in the crecent to make it flat, the bought a lace on leather recoil pad. Not perfect but serviceable.
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Hey, them things is soft.

    I have large shouders...the only two points of contact I have are the top point of the butt plate and the bottom one. No Bueno.

    Band saw will give you the exact contour you desire.

    never thought I'd see "pink, panties and pad" all in one post on here.

    I don't think you have been looking hard enough.

    You don't want to just cut it straight and install a recoil pad of your choice?

    Speaking of stocks, wasn't there a company that made nice synthetic stocks for lever guns awhile ago? I've been half heartedly looking for them.

    I'd get a cheap stock from one of the stockmakers with a shotgun buttplate and replace the rifle butt plate. That way you don't destroy the value of your rifle as you can replace it with the original if you ever want to sell it.

    I noticed that this lace on leather piece did not receive good reviews, however there are others makers out there and I bet some type of foam cut to fill the curve, then the weather buttstock cover installed would work fairly well without adding too much to your length of pull.

    Ram-Line still makes them for the Marlin 336 and Winchester 94.
