.500 S&W Magnum Lever-Action Carbine?
So I've decided for my zombie weapon of choice as well as a range toy, deer rifle, and hog rifle should be one of these... yes I know the ammunition is expensive, and a 45-70 or 12ga would also work just right but with such a short barrel I would really like to use a pistol cartridge and get the maximum velocity possible.
My question is, who makes them? I know of the Big Horn Armory model 89 which is BEAUTIFUL:
But at almost 2 grand M.S.R.P. it's WAY out of my price range, are there any other options out there for a reasonable price other than downgrading to a different cartridge?
