I am wanting a 45 Colt lever. For the money I have a hard time planning to pay twice as much for something that isn't a Rossi R92.
I don't need a 454/45 Puma. I got a Marlin 1895GG in 45-70 for the deep woods, I am looking for a 45Colt as a boat gun, something I can load light for the future grandkids to learn on, range toy, that sort of thing.
Do I really need to spend double the $ up front for something other than the R92? If the platform is a good fit for me, which I suspect it will be, which of the higher dollar options should I consider in the future?
