Who can we get?

To build a lever gun in .327 Federal magnum?
I've talked to Henry. Forget that.
I would think SOMEONE would be willing to consider building custom rifles if nothing else.

I understand there's not a huge .327 following, yet, but I think this is a classic case of,
"If you build it, they will come..."

It's really hard to sell a product you don't produce!

Rossi, Uberti, Braztec, c'mon, somebody, ANYBODY,
please make a .327fed/mag lever gun...

Find a 1894 Marlin in .32/20 or a early Winchester Model 92 & have it rechambered or new barrel put on. Also not certain but the smaller caliber Marlins many years ago .218 Bee .219 Zipper etc. anyways something to work with to build your .327FM Lever Action rifle. It would be expensive not cheap. Also a Rossi Model 92 might work but again custom work. There is a thread in this actual forum with work on semi-auto pistol calibers for lever actions mostly Marlin 1894 & 336 etc costs of $1200.00 & up. So I would ask around like you are doing. Someone might point you in the right direction. But to me I would think finding a lever in .32/20 is the way to go then custom work. Good luck!!!

It has been suggested to me that I might look for a lever in .32H&R magnum as a host gun, a newer model being preferable because of the more advanced metallurgy.
Talk about searching for a needle in a haystack.

I did find one currently for sale, but they want $3600 for a N.I.B.
That seems a little steep for a gun I want to change.

I knew it wouldn't be cheap, but geeeez!

You might try this option....buy a rifle in a caliber that's already produced and buy a handgun in that same caliber.....I think it's been done already and much cheaper.....thinking outside the box here.

Yes a Marlin 1894 in .32 H&R Magnum would work just a rechamber job. But yes the cost!!!
