How old is the gun? If it's within the first year since the original date of purchase, Rossi will fix it for you free of charge. Even if its not under the 1-year warranty, they will still do it for around $35. Give them a call and their customer service will steer you in the right direction.

not understanding how it will only accept 44 spl. but not 44 mag. there is less than a 1/16th" difference in shell length. are you sure it's a 44 mag.? and not a 44 spl.?

pictures would help a bunch.

Humm? Are these hand loads? What weight bullets? The 300 grs. .44 Mags often stick in 1892 style actions.

Ok, the barrel says only amadeo rossi s.a made in brazil and 44 magnum. But its old. its serial number is m 881. So i assume pretty early. I believe what we shot thought it were factory. Im not sure on specifications. We bought it about a year or two ago from a gun show. My dad being a huge western fan. Ill put pictures next go round.

If the barrel has "Amadeo Rossi" on it there is no warranty
but if it takes 44 spl it should take the mag. try tightening the loading gate screw. If that doesn't work lever it open and look down into the action to see if anything interferres with the mag round going thru the loading gate.
