    converting an 1894 45 LC to 454 Casull MAg

    I was thinking how great a model 1894 with a 20-24" octagonal barrel would be if it could be converted to 454 Casull Magnum. That way you'd have a real close range thumper for when you needed it and still be able to shoot standard 45 LC ammo. Will the action handle it or would a person need to move up to a model 336 to do this type of conversion?

    If recall.........the 454 Casull operates in the neighborhood of 65000-68000 PSI.............NO, the 1894 action won't take that pressure, and neither will the 336...........

    I think Puma makes one...
    20nickels; Targeting System + Lever/Trigger Accuater for side-eject lead dispenser. Alcohol fueled.

    Puma/Rossi/LSI can be had in a lever .454Casull but note that the action is a 92 rather than a 94 type action.

    I "had" one till it migrated to Montana with my new Daughter in Law for the fall elk season I believe it will do just fine.

    Thanks, I thought that I had seen this somewhere - I guess that is where I got the idea that the1894 or 336 couold handle it. Maybe buy a Browning 1892 & rework it. Thanks.

    The Browning / Miroku 1892 is one of the best, if not the best, revolver cartridge lever gun. This rifle will not stand up to the pressure of a 454 Casull. Puma/Rossi 454 ONLY !!!!!!

    Thanks for the feedback! I went out to the Legacy Arms (I think thatthey are the importers for Puma/Rossi) website today looking for more info about the Puma 1892. I couldn't find any listing for the 454 Casull Mag - only the 45LC + 44 Rem Mag et al. Is this rifle still being manufactured?

    I have heard that no 2 Puma's are the same. some are complete garbage and some hold up. I hear they are not very high quality.
    splitting stocks and breaking parts. as mentioned above, the casull is very high pressure, I think near the 300 win mag. I have a taurus revolver in 454. Great round. Personally you couldn't give me a puma.
