Default 460 S&W Lever Action Rifle?

If this cartridge becomes popular, can we expect lever action based on it?

If it does, can it shoot 454 casull, 45 colt in it like its counter part in revolver?

Thumbs up One of the dream list

I'd like to see lever carbines in both of the X frame calibers, but you'd have to be careful with the .460 spitzer rounds (as in not use them).

I think the .500 Magnum would be a great little carbine, and the .460 for longer range. Even better would be rimless versions mated to a mag-fed semi-auto carbine (styled similar to the m-1 carbine for "sporting purposes") and for the black rifle fans (and out of state interest) maybe some AR uppers, but then you get into compation with the .50 Beowolf and stuff.

I also think a mag-fed pistol caliber pump carbine would do well here in CA. With just a change in magwell insert you could have a carbine that uses your pistol mags, and being pump action you could load it up with "evil" features.

I'd design it based on a mossberg 500 or Remingiton 870 reciever for plenty of "off the shelf" accessories (that way it could be sold in "sporting" trim and "Evilifed" by the end user), flash hiders, folding stocks, pistol grips and bayonets Oh My! (yes I know that bayonets are not an "evil" feature here)

Think Rem. 7615, but in pistol caliber(s).

To keep on thread A pump mag-fed or tube magazined X-Frame rifle would be cool too. maybe someone should suggest tthat S&W partner with Mossberg, Marlin or Remington or someone to build rifle chambered for X-frame rounds

I've handled one of their co-pilots. Their work is excellent.

Dragon, from the pictures I have seen of SW500 rounds (never seen one in person) it would not be able to be used in a AR15 platform, since the cartridge is to long.

Remington 760/7600 series rifles are just that: a rifle action based on the 870. Not a big fan of the 760, my dad's got one. He does well with it, though.

Thumbs up

A few months ago I was thinking about the possibility of someone making a 500 S&W upper for the AR15 platform. I have a 4" 500 and a preban AR so I tried to insert some 500 S&W ammo into a 20 round mag just for the hell of it and low and behold I stuffed 7 rounds into the mag! Now we just need an upper for it.

Would the bolt head big enough for the 500 SW cartridge?

Most big calibers 50Beoulf, 460 socom, etc have rebated rim to fit the bolt head.
