Lever Guns

Pay Attention Because This Is NOT Your Grandfather’s 45-70!

There definitely seems to be a trend lately regarding ‘tactical’ lever-guns, some of you might like it and some may not. As for me, I’m what you call ‘old school’, so some of you younger guys might like this a bit more, since lever-guns are coming back into style.

It’s really quite simple, you buy a lever-gun (in this case it’s a Henry All-Weather Picatinny Rail .45-70 Side Gate) and then you add some ‘tactical accoutrements’ from Ranger Point Precision and Wa-la…you have your ‘tactical lever-gun’. One thing’s for sure, this ain’t your Grandfather’s lever-gun!

-And here’s a little bit about Ranger Point Precision from their website rangerpointstore.com:

OUR COMPANY

Located in the Houston area in Cypress, TX, Ranger Point Precision (RPP) is the leading innovator and producer of quality aftermarket lever-action rifle parts. Your one stop shop for all things lever-action rifles. All of our products are Made in Texas. Made in the USA.

In 2013, owners Adam and Kimberly Devine started Ranger Point Precision LLC because they had a passion for lever-action rifles. Adam and his team of skilled gunsmiths built high-end, custom Marlin lever-action rifles. That experience informed the company’s thinking about ways to design and make parts to increase the performance and functionality of these cherished rifles. Additionally, we listen to what our customers want for their rifles and add those ideas to our R&D list (consumers and gunsmiths). 

All of our parts are manufactured in-house and we are proud to be a ‘Made in USA’ firearm parts manufacturer. We invest heavily in research and development to constantly design new performance parts for Henry Repeating Arms, Marlin Firearms, Winchester Repeating Arms, Rossi 92, Citadel Levtac and more lever-action rifles year over year. All of our parts work with the newest rifles as well as are backwards compatible to work with rifles built as early as 1950. 

We’re very serious about the quality and dependability of our parts. RPP’s Limited Lifetime Warranty covers the product throughout the lifetime of the original purchaser, except in the case of intentional abuse, neglect, alterations, and modifications, unless specified in our instructions or authorized by the company.

Our parts are used by hundreds of gunsmiths around the world and have garnered five star reviews. Check out our five star customer reviews on every product page; in the customer gallery of photo reviews; and on Instagram

OUR PRODUCTS

Our DIY-install parts cover all of the most important functions of a lever gun (always more in R&D!): medium loop levers for room and comfort; innovative extractors, trigger kits and loading gates for reliable, smoother actions; peep sights, fiber optic front sights, dovetail fillers and scope mounts for fast and clear target acquisition; M-LOK handguards, butt stocks and cartridge quivers for more flexibility and easy access to ammo; self cleaning magazine followers and creative designed end caps; and more. 

I think that’s about as much information as I could give you, now all you need to do is buy it all and put it together and you’re set!
