    Nice! Now we need your range report!

    A wise choice, I might add. In light of your state's fetish about Evil Black Rifles, this is the nearly perfect "urban assault weapon" that passes the Political Correctness litmus test (at least for now).

    What Smitty said, they're the original "scout" rifle.

    Nice!

    Shooting a lever is like taking a trip back in time 120 years. Enjoy!

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Lever action rifles and revolvers. Might be old school, but what's not to like? You've made my mind up for me. Tomorrow's range day. The Winchester 44mag and Henry 357mag are going.

    Nice rifle. I think you are about to discover how nicely accurate and pleasant to shoot that cartridge will be in that rifle.

    There are a lot of people that have eaten venison thanks to a lever action gun.
    Congratulations and I don't think it is out dated. good rate of fire accurate to100 yards if you do your part and you can carry a pistol and rifle chambered in the one caliber.

    Let us know how it shoots.

    Ill definitely own a lever gun one of these days. As the post above me states, in some circumstances, its a package that still to this day is nothing to sneeze at. I sure wouldnt want someone pinning me down under fire from a lever rifle.

    45 Colt, huh? That should shoot nice.
    Do you have a 45 Colt revolver already?
    I've always wanted a centerfire revolver and rifle in the same caliber. Someday.

    Nice! A great plinker/hunting rifle that would be great for home defense!
