I wonder if a lever action could be made to feed 480s.I Think a win

Would be best with long action. Just a thought

Several of us have the Puma/Rossi copy of a Winchester 1892 in 480 Ruger. It's a fun, light-weight little gun!

Here you go: http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/36_372/products_id/87995/Puma+.480+Ruger+20%22+Round+Blue

But why would need a long action for a little pistol round? :?
My idea of a long action is a 45-90 or 50-110 8)

Most Marlins and 92s have a hard time with longer length cartridge. Ill be honest did not know 480 came in a rifle

Marlins are a problem period that's why I only own Winchesters.

The Marlin action is not pressure rated for a .480, nor is a 94 Winchester. If you want a 454 or 480, you have to go with the Winchester 92. The 1886/71 is strong enough, but it would be a nightmare to get it to feed a cartridge that short.

you are correct. I did some research so I was thinking about converting a browning 92 to 480. but I'm looking for the rossi now that I know they exist.
