Prices on quality levers aren't going down anytime soon....I really, really want a lever rifle in 45 Colt. I have visions of long octagon barrel... I think Henry makes one but they are just so expensive. I wasn't real impressed with some of the Henry .22LR levers I looked at, it appeared that the receiver and barrel were painted black as opposed to blued. Felt kinda cheap. Maybe the more expensive ones are better?
I also find myself interested in a 45-70. Or any other straight wall cartridge I guess... 30-30 is cool but I just have such a huge boner for straight walls.
Lever guns require hand fitting and I don't think Freedom Group understood or cared how critical that is and there was a lot of crappy manufacturing and machining being done on them after the manufacturing plant was moved, not to mention a lot of experienced employees were lost because of the move. They shot themselves in the foot because of their decision making and took the brand from a good quality product to poorly made garbage. Hopefully, Ruger will be able to resuscitate the brand and it's reputation.I have a Remington 1911 from 2016. The finish on the gun is garbage, they used a black oxide coating, like bolts, instead of blueing.
That being said it’s the quality otherwise is amazing. Really well put together. Most accurate 1911 I’ve ever shot.
however, there is such a wide range of variety in 1911s. Not really a standard to compare it to.
