if you were going to buy a .45 LC Short Rifle, which one ?


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


am going to buy a .45 LC short rifle, and would like to hear some opinions on which is the best, quality and performance wise.....

I don't know if Browning (Miroku) or Winchester (also Miroku) ever produced the '92 in .45 LC, but think I would like to find one if possible.... mayhap someone could enlighten me ?.....

Model 1892 Carbine, -- Winchester Repeating Arms -- Product Model one of many lever 45 colts on Gunbroker http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=264215883 I have found that Gungroker is a good place to research some rifles and caliber combinations you may think about or just google lever action rifles in 45 Colt.It's not that difficult to find these things

yep....however that is a carbine, I want one in a Short Rifle, with the curved, metal-capped buttstock, the capped fore-end, and the dovetail barrel-tube fixture.... I don't know if they made one however....

I did a search on "1892 short rifle" and came up with several hits, Winchester, Navy, EMF, Chiappa, and Rossi. I like the looks of the short rifle over the carbine too but then, I'm addicted to octagonal barrels.

Sorry, I can't recommend a company as my '92 rifle maker (Armi San Marco) went out of business.

Navy Arms did have a 45 Colt short rifle, but they've been dropped from the catalog for a few years now.

You will have to search for used ones, but look for either the EMF Hartford or Navy Arms short rifles. Both were by Rossi.

Marshall, fear not, your Armi San Marco has been resurrected. After Armi's "bankruptcy", they made a new sign, went back to work, buffed them a little more, added to the price and call them Chiappas. Honestly...

Maybe I couldn't help you as much as I wanted to. I surfed the Winchester, Cimarron, Chiappa, EMF, Navy Arms, Rossi, Puma, and Dixie Gun Works webs. Only Winchester is offering the '92 short rifle at the present. Cimarron has them but none are currently in stock. Your best bet is to check the auction houses for one, check with Cimarron as to when they will get new stock, or check with Winchester. Calibers are limited to .44 and .357 magnum IIRC. Best wishes on finding your rifle.

Thanks for the good news. Last I heard of Armi San Marco, they had been taken over by American Western Arms (AWA). A check on the AWA site shows they are still in business offering primarily Colt SA and Lightning rifle clones but no '92 lever actions. Looks like Chiappa picked up that portion of the Armi San Marco products. This is getting so confusing that it's hard to keep up!

I don't know if a 20" takedown version is interesting to you but, Winchester(Miroku)/Davidson's produced a special run of 500 1892's in .45LC. They are still available at CDNN and several are on GB. I recently received mine and it is quite handsome indeed. The lockup is tight, for now, and the finish is typical Miroku, meaning...beautiful. The barrel tube band is attached in a curious manner. I suspect it is spot welded as there is only a straight cut in the barrel and no visible means of attachment from inside the band. The barrel is rollmarked with all manner of "crap" and is a bit of distraction but, overall...a fine rifle.

yep...

yep, this DOES interest me, and would be just peachy except for the pistol grip stock and the curved lever.....beautiful at any rate, and I'll keep looking....I did find that winchester actually had a very short run of them made up by Miroku around '98-2000 in a short rifle in .45 LC...so they are out there.... and I ~WILL~ have one....

Am also going to be buying a 45LC lever gun soon. Have looked at the Rossi which is probalbly the least expensive and the Uberti, but can't get my head around Italian made replicas of American firearms. I think I will settle for the, Henry 45LC Big Boy, to go with my 45LC Rugar Vaquero. I use my .308, M1a/M14 for the long shots. Good luck to you.

There's nothing wrong with the Italian Winchesters. I've got three of the 92's in 44 mag. Would it be nice to have an American made one ? Yes, but you'll likely never see another in our lifetime. The Henry's just don't LOOK right to me, and I've heard they have their problems too. The only problem I've had with the Rossi's was the magazine tube jumping the retainer screw with full house magnum rounds with heavy bullets. All that took was some minor work here at home to fix.

you need to find a Cimmarron to try first, ( Chiappa ), as the Henry's are very heavy and just don't "Feel" right to me, whereas the Cimmarron is an exact copy of a Winchester Model '92...I have one and it's wunnerful and in .45 LC to go with MY New Vaquero in .45 LC also.... I posted a picture in another thread, do a search for it it's great.
