I just this afternoon passed a milestone of sorts. My popular YouTube video on how to spin-cock a full-size Model 1892 rifle as well as the Model 1892-based Rossi Ranch Hand just hit 1,000 views. Many thanks to all who viewed that video and helped me reach the 1,000-views mark. As you’ll recall, that video was produced for my blog post Firearms — Television Westerns from the 1950s.
The Rossi Ranch Hand is stock straight from the box, but the Rifleman’s Rifle is a customized Rossi M92 specially modified by Mike DiMuzio of North Carolina.
I’m so please with what Mike‘s product that I’ll be sending to him another rifle for the same treatment — an earlier beautiful pre-safety Interarms/Rossi Model 92 chambered for the .45 Colt black powder cartridge. More on that rifle in a later blog post.
Thanks Mike. This rifle is just a blast, and I’ve yet to fire it. I practice spin-cocking this thing nearly every night just before retiring. It is indeed, as Mike calls it, great “Rifle Therapy.”
My other video for my blog post on El Paso’s Chihuahuas Baseball Team and our new Southwestern University Ballpark, hasn’t been nearly as successful, having garnered only 31 hits since it’s posting nearly six weeks ago. Oh, well. That’s life at the ball game.
