If you need a handy yet powerful lever gun capable of fast repeat shots, or just a short, light rifle for hunting, the .45-70 Lever Model will provide the accuracy and reliability you can count on. Its receiver is blued steel fitted with an 18.43" round barrel underneath and a tubular magazine of four-round capacity. Its pistol-grip, buttstock, and steel-capped forend are crafted of beautiful American walnut and cut with checkering to provide a sure grip. The buttstock wears a soft rubber pad to help shooters handle .45-70 recoil from a 7.08 pound rifle. Because the receiver is drilled and tapped, scope mounting is an easy option.
