Big horn armory

Any body have one ? They make a beautiful lever guns in 500. S.w mag I just canít see paying $2500 plus for a lever action to bang it up in the woods hunting.

Only other option is t.c encore for like $800 only problem gun has so much recoil in the small package guys are ruining scopes plus having to put 4 Rings thatís right 4 rings to hold scope.

an acquaintance of mine has one in 500 and ended up with 4 rings to keep the scope in place. he had tried 3 rings 1st but it did not work.

it shoots good & he tested several different loads to get the best performance.

just my 2 cents but it doesnt look right with the scope mount & 4 rings. I wouldnt buy one but then I am old school & prefer the
looks of the early Winchesters & Marlins.

I’m trying to understand why four rings are necessary. There are lever guns chambered in rifle rounds with more recoil, I don’t get the problem.

try it in 500 linebaugh, 1300fps with a 450gr lfn is all you you need. i have a tc encore with a 23" MGM heavy factory barrel in 500L with a 2-7x leupold. the 500 s&w is way overpowered.
