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!
