I like that they offer both loading options with the 454. I wish Rossi did that will all of their 92Rs

Unfortunately for me the .454 CASULL is out of production said their customer service agent. I own a SRH ALASKAN in .454 and a S&W 460 XVR so a rifle would have been nice.

I saw one on gunbroker about a month ago but the person selling it was not an FFL so I passed on it.

Do the Ruger made Marlins have a cast receiver?

It would make sense that Ruger would cast the receiver since ruger is one of the best investment casting companies in the country.
I can't imagine ruger making a complicated receiver without casting it.

While I will always defer to the knowledge and experience of one R.R./ar15barrels, I would almost swear to the fact that Ruger, while yes, has seemingly perfected the investment casting technique, wished to honor the Marlin brand and is producing the receivers for the new Marlin rifles and carbines (Model 1895 for now, but Models 336 and 1894 sure to come) in the way that Marlin always has.

Gun Talk radio with Ruger's Brian Killoy at about 5:30 into the show. Our host asks about the "process" of producing the Marlin long gun under Ruger's apt hand and Killoy says,

Quote:
...a lot of people have asked if Ruger's going to use the investment casting that Ruger is famous for... as you know we have our own investment casting foundry up in New Hampshire... ...if it was a forged part, then, no, we're going to stick with that, but if we were designing something from scratch, then...
[poor transcription by yours truly]

If youíre really serious about a 460 rifle, I can say with certainty, the Big Horn Armory Model 90 is absolutely superb. I have a 460V so was curious.
This past June we visited our brother in law in Cody, Wy. where Big Horn rifles are made. Got a little tour but more importantly got to handle one of their rifles, a short barrel 460 which Iím interested in.
Let me tell you thisÖ.They are pricey but are well worth it. Absolutely unbelievable work.

Big Horn, don’t they custom build your rifle out of a menu of items that you can list? Stocks $, sights $, barrel $$, finish $$$? I believe I looked at their site but I just want regular production rifle. I’m considering buying one of Turner’s .44 mag ROSSI 92’s that are wood/SS. Don’t have a need for a .44 but while I wait for a .454/460 another lever action is always welcome in my home.

Yes, customizable with a limited menu. Get what you pay for, the quality is fantastic. Iím selling things I havenít been shooting and will probably send in my order to Big Horn. Still havenít decided on the 460 or 500 Magnum.
I bought a Thompson Center 460 rifle a few years ago. Havenít fired it yet.

Thatís kinda where I am at myself, selling my labradars and Forster press to buy more guns. Iíve got the semi autos that I wanted with the exception of another CZ P01 and an LWRC A5. I have been slowly gravitating towards lever/wheel guns as I like the simplicity of their controls and of reloading for them. The Big Horn 460 would be just ridiculously fun I imagine. I misplaced the second muzzle brake to my S&W 4Ē 500 magnum so I only shoot a few rounds, a 500 lever action would be exciting to have.
