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?
1894 wont handle it.

America was founded by tough hell raisers, rugged American citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer and moonshine, and smuggled weapons; it will be saved only by those who do the same today.
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...........Originally Posted by TinkerDave

Dang - thanks. That probably why I have never seen this thing done before.
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.
Porquipines are peacefull creatures but God still saw fit to give them quills.
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.Originally Posted by Coldfingers
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 !!!!!!Originally Posted by TinkerDave

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?Originally Posted by .375 Hawk
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.
