Big Horn rifle

SilencerCo, Big Horn Armory and Winding Wheel Supply Co. teamed up produce a rifle package that is sure to catch the eye of many people. The base of the package is a Big Horn Armory Model 90 lever rifle chambered in .460 S&W Magnum. The rifle is then paired with a Summit Edition Hybrid sound suppressor and custom leather scabbard.

Model 90

The model 90 is a lever action rifle that has a threaded 18″ barrel and stainless steel action. It is chambered for the potent .460 S&W Magnum and holds six of the cartridges in the magazine. An aperture rear sight is mated with a blade front sight. The gun is also fitted with a 9.5″ Picatinny rail for the addition of a scout style scope. The stock is made of American walnut and the metal has a matte black finish.

Summit Edition Hybrid

The Hybrid is a sound suppressor designed by SilencerCo to handle big bore cartridges like the .460 S&W Magnum. When mounted to the 18″ barrel of the Model 90, it helps to tame noise when taking game or during target practice. It has a matte black finish.

With the Federal .460 S&W Magnum load that uses a 300 grain Swift A-Frame bullet, SilencerCo measures the noise at 139.9 dB from this gun/suppressor combination.

Winding Wheel Leather Scabbard

    I love suppressed lever guns as much as the next guy, but that Pic rail on top looks completely out of place and ruins the lines of the rifle.

    • me

      I agree. Not every gun needs rails on it.

    • Cal.Bar

      So… the giant half a foot long 21st century CAN on the end of the barrel doesn’t offend your historical sensibilities, but he relatively innocuous looking rail blows it out of the water for you? Each to their own.

      • Anonymoose

        Yeah, nah. Hiram Maxim invented the suppressor back in 1902. Silencercos Osprey actually follows the lines of his original design pretty well, too.

      • TennTexan

        “doesn’t offend your historical sensibilities…”

        Not even a little. Suppressed lever guns are hardly a modern contrivance. Teddy Roosevelt had a Maxim silencer on his Winchester 1894.

      • Nashvone

        I don’t see anyone hanging an infra-red laser, flashlight and tactical chainsaw off the rail. Drill and tap it for a scope and be done with it.

        • Charles Chenet

          Hey I never thought of the tactical chain saw. What a great idea

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      Id say the $5200 tag ruins it for me.

      • TennTexan

        Well yeah, there’s that too.

        • Evan

          I’m generally a fan of rails, but on a lever gun? Ruins the look of a gun that would otherwise be beautiful.

  • Don Ward

    Rails and cans on a lever gun???

    • TennTexan

      “cans on a lever gun”

      Teddy Roosevelt was certainly a fan.

    • Nick

      If you think this is bad, lookup Mossberg’s tactical 30-30. It’s downright hideous looking.

      • TennTexan

        We do not speak of that abomination!

        • iksnilol

          I like it, you can do anything to it with a clean conscience.

        • Gjert Klakeg Mulen

          Cover your eyes children:

          • Y-man

            Aaaaaiiiieeee! My eyes, they burn!

          • Evan

            Does it make me a bad person that I kind of ironically want one of those?

          • TennTexan

            Maybe? Yeah, I’d give it a solid “maybe.”

            😉

          • Evan

            Yeah, on second thought, I’d be kinda embarrassed to pull that out at the range.

          • ozzallos .

            Honestly, that thing in a pistol caliber carbine with a 9 round capacity would have been almost golden. Well that, and reverting back to a side eject setup like Marlin. Rail the top, paint it black and feed it some .45lc.

            I’m wet now.

    • ozzallos .

      Is he… staring into my soul?

  • Schnee

    Meh.
    Rossi M92 in .454 Casull/45 Colt + Good machinist (got to shorten feed tube and find crazy Brazilian thread pattern for that) + Learn to file new dovetail slot for front sight = $600. Then take that + Octane .45 + Diet Coke (CO2 helps with first round pop) = Pellet gun sound with heavy, slow Cowboy Action rounds. Pity the racoons in my neighborhood.

    • Jwedel1231

      The point is to take out and use a .460 Magnum, not just slow cowboy 45 LC loads. Big Horn is the only company I’ve found that makes a .460 mag lever gun.

      • Schnee

        Rossi makes this one in 454 Casull, which is hard to distinguish from 460. Admittedly the Rossi is not Korth-level quality, but a quick polish job on the action and it’s pretty slick. Not saying this Big Horn isn’t cool. Just saying I did the same thing for $1500, stamp included.

        • Jwedel1231

          That’s actually pretty cool. I have a .460 mag revolver and want a lever gun tomatch. I could just get a Rossi .454 like you did, and run .454s in my revolver, but I want the ability to use .460 mags in both. I wonder what it would take to bore out a .454 lever gun to accept .460 mags? Followed by the stuff you listed above, of course.

      • Schnee

        I’ll also admit that I’m not anxious to put a full-power Casull round through my can, so I don’t have that. Subsonic and heavy is the sweet spot for this thing in my opinion.

    • Devil_Doc

      True, but in the end, you still have a Rossi… I don’t say that to be snarky, I say that as someone who has owned one.

    • Zapp Brannigan

      Why kill raccoons, Mr Psychopath? They are harmless. Leave them alone and they’ll leave you alone. Getting your jollies out of needlessly killing other things is effing sick. Budding serial killers like you give responsible gun owners a bad name.

      • Spencerhut

        You obviously know zero about racoons. Ever had a racoon eat an entire litter tiny kittens? How about dig into your chicken coop and kill a dozen chickens? How about pull the head off your wife’s favorite goose? Right thought so. I kill every racoon stupid enough to give me a shot at it.

        • Schnee

          Yep ^^^

      • Tassiebush

        Did i just accidentally stumble onto a vegan website? I reckon Schnee is going for a very humane option. Those big heavy bullets would be very quick. I hope that when I finally snuff it my death is that painless.
        Your denigrating the enjoyment of hunting and comparing it to serial killing is as clichéd as it is offensive. If you say that about one form of hunting you can’t then retract it and claim to support other forms. Hunting is as old as humanity itself. Most of us are wired up to do it and it generally provides a positive outcome. To say it shouldn’t be enjoyable is comparable to saying s3x is a task that should only be done in a joyless manner. Murder on the other hand is an act of great harm and treachery against your own community. Can you see the distinction?

        • Phil Hsueh

          I don’t get the impression that he’s condemning hunting in general, just the hunting/shooting of raccoons. I’ll admit that at first I thought that the comment about shooting raccoons was callous and insensitive, but then again, I do live in the burbs so I don’t have any experience with them beyond a minor nuisance or a mere pest and I suspect that’s the perspective that the OP is looking at it from, the urban/sububranite. However, reading about them from a more rural perspective I can fully understand why you’d want to shoot them and how destructive they can be.

          • Tassiebush

            I also doubt he’s anti hunting too per se. It’s just the form of argument Zapp used which borrows from typical anti hunting/hunter demonization claims. I.e characterizing someone as a psychopath or budding serial killer. They are very harmful bits of slander because they are a genuine misconception held by the anti camp which includes an increasing portion of the community. It just irks me that people default to such a severe opinion without bothering to understand the context.
            From my perspective I have no experience of raccoons but I know full well that creatures like them can be very destructive. The brushtail possum is the local equivalent. Locally they destroy fruit trees and vegetables. A family member is a market gardener and it’s a constant battle with various “cute” creatures and this is further complicated by nearby animal lovers who seem to be emotionally invested in every individual animal and a bunch of laws which impede their management including rules about trapping, needing permits to catch species even though they exceed pre European times and have no season or predators.

      • Evan

        If you live in the suburbs they’re not a problem. If you have chickens and whatnot, they can be. Where I live, I couldn’t safely shoot raccoons and wouldn’t want to. If they were destroying my pets/livestock, it would be a different story.

      • ozzallos .

        And they’re mean as f***. Even the small ones that look like you could cuddle them because they’re oh so cute with their little burglar mask and OH GOD ITS TEARING MY TOES OFF HELP ME SHOOT IT SHOOT THE RABID BEAST!

        No, really. It’s like that.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    I say anything you can suppress do it.

    • Don Ward

      What about Nagant revolvers?

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        YES! ALL OF THEM!

    • Tassiebush

      What about emotions?

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Good question.
        One that I’ve been dealing with recently. Unfortunately they can only be held back so long before they spill out.

        • Tassiebush

          Yeah ideally just push em down cos as everyone knows they’re no good, but agreed that unfortunately they sometimes surface. Ideally with any negative emotion like, guilt, remorse or sadness convert them into anger to avoid looking stupid 😉

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            I grew up in an environment of violence and drugs and only now am I dealing with a life long history of anxiety and depression. My gf is a physician and has been a great deal of help. I’ve always quashed it with booze but I’m exploring other options. I’m officially crazy but I keep it together day by day.

          • Tassiebush

            Oh well you’re well liked on here and good company. It’s annoying the way our environments imprint on us. I identify with anxiety and depression. You get wired up and it takes a lot of effort to adjust that. Saddened to hear about that home environment stuff. Your a good bloke going from my interactions with you. I reckon your girlfriend would enjoy your company. 🙂

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            Thanks man, I’m ok.
            Others have it far worse. Iv found steady exercise a good diet and my hobbies to be quite calming. Ammo is just too damn high plus range fees. Sometimes I wish I still lived in the country where I could go out in the back field anytime and plink cans with my .22 until the sun went down.

      • Evan

        They make booze for that.

        • Tassiebush

          Haha good point although you have to quickly reach unconsciousness or else it can act as a release agent.

  • john huscio

    Tactical cowboys ride again

  • USMC03Vet

    Sheriff Longmire needs something like this.

  • TennTexan

    Is the Octane even rated for the Casull?

  • Blake

    Very nice lookin’ setup. But if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.

    A Henry Big Boy Steel in 44 Mag will get you most of the way there. Unlike the classic Big Boy the bbl is round so you can have it threaded easily.

  • politicsbyothermeans

    I want a scabbard for every one of my rifles.

  • Zapp Brannigan

    Maybe it’s just me, but a pump action rifle seems more useful than a lever action rifle if you want something that isn’t semi-auto yet can provide a fast second shot.

  • Will P.

    So if it’s chambered for .460 S&W magnum, does that mean it’ll also shoot .454 Casull, and 45lc?

  • Charles Chenet

    It’s cool but it’s a niche. I think the .444 Marlin is the way to go and $5200.00 is ridiculous.

  • Old Vet

    I catch myself saying if only I could win the damn lottery, just once LORD??
