Ruger American Levergun?

Wierd thought - What if Ruger made a polymer stocked lever action rifle in .357 and .44 magnum, with a picatinny rail on top? And the street price was about the same as the RAR series?

I like my bolt 77/357, I've got it set up for hunting out to 100, 150 yards maybe, and it would be great for that. A lever would be really nice for hiking and brush. Should such a thing come about, I would love to see a 10 round mag that is compatible with both, or possibly tube fed with gate loading (don't like the Henry style tube loading). It would also keep me from buying a Rossi. Take my money Ruger, take my money.

Stainless steel of course.

And with a takedown model.

I'm an old Neanderthal I like walnut and blue! Although I wouldn't mind walnut and stainless ! It is not too much trouble for me to clean my gun after use and rub it down with rust inhibitor !

I think it could be like the American rifles, with all sorts of variations coming out every year to keep Ruger on the cover of magazines. Takedown, all weather, wood and blued, threaded barrel, youth models, etc. Maybe even use a modular stock system like the American rimfire, as it would be a good gun to teach youth on. As long as it doesn't end up looking like the Mossberg tactical line of lever actions.

I'd buy one for me, and one for each of my four kids. Or maybe two for me!

Sounds neat, but probably not too likely. I'd settle for an American Bolt in those calibers. I looked at a 77/357 lately and was north of $700...Yikes!

.45 Colt, steel and wood. Then I won't have to buy a Rossi.
