Scott Says “My Lever Gun Is BIGGER Than Yours…”
I know a lever gun might seem a bit old fashioned to some and yes, they are ‘old school’, but there’s just something about cranking the lever and putting a round in the chamber that makes you feel like you’re back in the ‘old west’. In the video below, Scott has some real fun with a 500 Magnum lever gun made by Big Horn Armory. This sure as heck isn’t your Grandpa’s old Winchester 30-30! I’ll put a link beneath the video just incase some of you might be interested in ordering one of these rifles for yourself.
Here is some info and specifications on the rifle Scott is using in the video:
Barrel Length 16″, 18″, 22″ Caliber .500 S&W Rate Of Twist 1 in 24″ Buttstock & Forend Fancy Walnut, Grey Laminate, Standard Walnut Barreled Action 17-4 Stainless Steel Metal Finish Color Case Hardened, Hunter Black SS, Matte SS Stock Finish Synthetic Satin Recoil Pad 1″ Pachmayr Decelerator Sights Aperture Rear, Blade Front Magazine Capacity 7 Overall Length 35″, 37″, 41″ Weight 7 lbs. 10 oz.
MODEL 89 – 500 S&W
Proudly built in the USA, the Big Horn Armory Model 89 lever-action rifle in .500 S&W Magnum continues the rich legacy of American firearms design and development. Built from the ground-up and solidly engineered using the latest CNC technology, the Model 89 embodies the best of the old Model 86 and Model 92 lever-actions in a modern platform capable of handling the powerful .500 S&W Magnum. Both rifle and carbine models are manufactured with 17-4 stainless steel precision machined and properly hardened to deliver consistent downrange performance and rugged in-the- field dependability.
The selected American black walnut stock and forend are fitted with integral front and stud rear sling swivel mounts. The pistol-grip buttstock has a one-inch recoil-taming pad. Stock and forend are given several coats of a durable synthetic satin finish. The standard rifle and carbine are equipped with aperture rear and post front sights. The Model 89’s large, hunter-friendly curved- lever enables ease of operation, especially with gloved hands. Honoring the long tradition of great American sporting rifles, the new Model 89 .500 S&W Magnum provides hunters with pride in ownership, and a powerful advantage afield.
