Thanks Jackfish. I understand that orders to distributors are being processed now. The problem is , they will be sold according to which distributors got the orders in first and so on down the line. Wow...what a wait. Does anyone have a handle on what the "dealer" price to the consumer will be? What do you believe the suggested dealer price to the non-FFL holder will be?
Seems that I read somewhere that the Puma 92 has been "beefed up" to handle the pressure of the .454 Casul. Actually, I was told a few years ago that the Rossi 92 is one of the VERY best lever action rifles made as far as accuracy is concerned. A close friend stated that the Rossi out shoots the Winchester . He said that the Rossi is sometimes a bit rough, but they are accurate for the money and a great buy. Any other opinions on thsi matter?
It will be interesting to see the performance and reliability of the new .454 lever action. Over the last several years, I've seen any number of folks asking for a .454 lever action, and the answer was always the same....the lever action can't handle that level of pressure, it can't and wouldn't be done. Maybe that reference was only for the Marlin?
The only reference I've seen about the new rifle was a brief announcement of it's release. I would have thought the manufacturer would have given a few to the better known writers for their review?
Have I missed some review articles?
I suppose I'm just getting old, but for that cheap a price I'll think I'll wait and see what the results are for a couple months (or more).
Thinking about the reasons Winchester decided to drop the 480, seems like manufacturers would have a comment section on their website for customer's to put in a wish list. Or say they are thinking about introducing some new variant and getting a public response that way. Kind of like the polls here on the Beartooth. Invite the shooting public to comment on new projects, seems like it would be an easier and more economical way to keep their pulse on shooting trends.
