    Modern single shot lever action rifle?

    Hello everyone, i was wondering if there such a thing as a single shot lever action rifle in a modern configuration? I am looking for something that uses the drop block mechanism of a sharps rifle but has the look and feel of a modern Marlin lever action. Does this type of gun even exist? If anyone has any information please let me know.

    Shiloh Sharps still makes rifles.

    I think a Ruger #1 might be close to what you are looking for.

    What your looking for is here Meacham Tool & Hardware Inc. but be prepared to pay a hefty price.

    There is also the Stevens 44 1/2 rifle being made. It is a switch barrel rifle but it is not cheap either. Its a semi-custom rifle like the Shiloh and Meachum rifles.

    A Ruger No 1 and Steven's Favorite come to mind. Winchester is making some High Wall and Low Wall reproductions, as wall as Uberti's and others.

    Hey guys, thanks for the information. I looked into the Ruger 1...I think this is what Im looking for. Now, what is a good caliber to get. I was thinking of a 458 Lott...what do you guys think? If not the Lott, I am thinking of getting one that can use old style cowboy ammunition like the 45 70. Let me know what you all think...maybe some advice as well.

    Do you have a specific purpose in mind for this rifle?

    It is my understanding the .375 H&H is a rather good all-purpose type big game round.

    The 45-70 is a great all around caliber, but be forewarned that if your going to buy ammo over the counter for it then you have a possible issue. Most over the counter 45-70 is loaded way, way down from the ballistic potential of this great round. Reason being is the abundance of old 45-70 trapdoors in the market. To avoid any possibility of the liability of the old action blowing up the manufatures load a very conservative load for over the counter sales. The 45-70 really shines when you reload for it, and is really cool when shooting about a 520 grain lead bullet over about 72 to 75 grains of good all black 2F. Of course it will shoot really good with the white stuff also.
