    When is Big Horn Armory going to announce their TFB rifle giveaway? 😉

  • Beju

    Oh nice it loads .454 Casull as well. I’ll be able to use .460 S&W for hunting and .454 Casull for cheap practice ammo 😉

  • SD3

    Sorry, dudes. I can’t abide a rifle with a LOP under 14″.

    • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

      Yeah. Too bad LOP is fixed and permanent and could never be modified in any way.

  • Nashvone

    Well, at least the price will keep me from getting my hopes up for a 500 caliber.

    • Robert Griffith

      Check their website and you’ll see that they do offer it in .500 S&W.

      • Nashvone

        True and it is a beautiful rifle. I’m just not ready to drop that kind of money on a rifle that shoots revolver ammo.

        • Robert Griffith

          I agree. Since learning of these rifles I have been lusting
          after the .460 the same way I used to dream of a lever gun that would shoot the
          .445 SuperMag. or the .357 Max., both of which I am equally unlikely to ever
          see as I am one of these beauties.

  • That is one handsome levergun.

  • Amanofdragons

    Other than a more unique caliber and cool factor, I really don’t see the advantage over a similar rifle in 45-70.

    • Nashvone

      It magically empties your bank account three times faster.

  • UCSPanther

    I like the M89 carbine in 500 SW.

    Move over 45-70…

  • /k/ommando

    Looks nice but I prefer the side-ejecting Marlins, since you can mount a PSO scope and retain use of the irons.

  • Southpaw89

    Well, if I ever won the lottery. Its a beautiful rifle, but for that price it would hardly ever leave my safe.

    What a great gun, beautiful custom piece!

    If I could dream big, I’d personally choose a Wild West Guns Alaskan Co-Pilot in this
    “sell-your-house custom lever action” category.
    An 18.5″ stainless takedown with nitrided barrel, threaded muzzle,
    synthetic furniture, enlarged lever, a nice Cerakote job and
    an SEG .45 rifle suppressor to top it off…
    This setup would cost more than the yearly expenses of my country though, lol.

  • Squirreltakular

    Awesome gun.

    I might be going off the rails here, but how cool would a side-mounted-magazine fed lever action be?
