    So it does qualify as a pistol?

    Interesting thing about that series, if you look at hs cartridge belt its always got 45/70 cartridges in it. A mighty tight fit in a Win 92 I'd bet. Interesting gun but I cant invent an excuse to get one, I do LOVE my 92 Rossi 357 though.

    Yup, thats how theyre manufactured & sold, put on a full length buttstock & your a felon unless you swap in a 16"+ barrel & even then maybe. I'm fairly sure they dont like you turning a pistol into a rifle but I could be wrong.

    The .45-70 cartridges McQueen had were just for show...most people watching the show just saw the massive round and thought that's what the gun was chambered for...( of course, WE know better...! )

    And yes, the Ranch Hand is marketed as a pistol...and cannot be changed back to a rifle. If you wanted to take a Winchester M1892 and cut it down to make it a mare's leg, you would have to get a $200 stamp, which gives BATFE freedom to "visit" you at ANY time.

    Leverdude is right. they are manufactured as pistols because if they were rifles they would be an SBR which would mean having to get a tax stamp from the BATF to own. by making them new and classifying them as pistols, they are exempt from this and anyone can buy them without a stamp and fee to the BATF. i don't think you can legally put a longer barrel or stock on them either. because they are classified as pistols. same legal rule as you can't take a M94 rifle and legally make a Mare's Leg out it because then it's an SBR.

    Sooooo, I bought this beautiful new levergun in the picture. I damn well just love the gun. It is a Rossi/Legacy Arms .454 casull . I have looked high and low for any information at all on the breakdown for cleaning and any after market stuff like a nice new light trigger but I can find NOTHING except a guy found a maual for basic field strip so i can at least clean it. Does anyone here have any experience with this gun or know where i can get info. or after market stuff ??? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
