Thank God, but he's gonna keep on trying and will spend millions more doing it!

If you look at the mechanism, that's essentially what it is. They basically just attached a lever to the 10/22 bolt. Clever, indeed.

targetshooter77, My second reminder .... there won't be a third! The topic of this thread is lever action Ruger rifles. It is NOT about political crap or Michael Bloomberg ... it's about lever action Rugers. Either stay on topic or find a different forum!

I'd love to see a Ruger lever in 327, but I agree the economic case is challenging. I just wish Marlin would get their (rumored) 357 line back up and running. New 44's are coming in, but nothing in 357. Which leaves Henry's (good guns, but the tube magazine isn't my favorite), imports, and I guess an occasional Winchester (and I'm not certain where that is made).

Probably wrong terminology--sorry. I guess I mean how the rounds are feed into the magazine. Henry requires the removal of a rod, whereas I thought Marlin and Winchester loaded via a loading gate near the trigger. Iowegan, perhaps you could correct my terms?

You know guys we would all like to see Ruger do a lever rifle. The 96 series is nice. Ruger makes very nice revolvers both DA & SA. Plus great semi-auto pistols, .22 rim fire revolvers & sem-auto's and now in the AR-15's & 1911's cannot get much better. Personally I like Marlin, Henry & Rossi just fine have all three brands in .22LR & .357 & 30-30 but one can dream on I guess!!

64Chevy, The terms are correct .... all three brands do indeed have tube fed magazines and have the same restrictions for flat nose bullets. You're right .... the difference is: Winchester and Marlins load via a spring loaded gate on the right side of the receiver. Henry's have a removable inner tube .... just like 22 LR tubes where you release and pull the tube out then load via the port in the outer tube from the muzzle end. With either type, there's enough capacity (at least 6 rounds) where you should never have to reload when hunting .... unless you are really a bad shot.

I used to like the side loading .... then I bought a Henry. Seems the tight spring loaded side gate does not like to be fed when your hands are cold or when "buck fever" hits you. I got tired of searching for dropped ammo and boogering up bullet noses. Loading and especially unloading a Henry is much easier .... but some people still prefer the side gate where you have to keep jacking the lever to empty the gun rather than pulling the tube and pouring out the cartridges.

Thanks. I purely use my Henry for target shooting (and would use the Marlin for the same purpose). I find the loading tube a little "fiddly" but that is because I may load it 10 times during a range outing.

The .327 is not a SASS or Cowboy Action Shooting approved cartridge and therefore without the Cowboy action shooting market the demand for a lever in this caliber is almost non-existent. .38/.357 and .45 LC are approved cartridges and that's one of the reasons so many levers are available in those two calibers and sales are as high as they are.

Price wise the Rossi Model 92 is the lowest priced it seems. I really like mine thats in my avatar picture a large loop Model 92 .357 with a 16 inch barrel very accurate rifle!!! My Marlin I need to break out of my gun safe and shoot it more!!! The new Henry Big Boy steel receiver lever rifles are very nice and scope friendly can be mounted on the receiver!!!

Waiting now on delivery of my new Henry Big Boy steel in .327 Federal magnum, which has now been SASS approved!
