Hell of a deal, now call Meister bullets over in Missouri and order you 500 of the .458 diameter 500gr flat nosed hard cast bullets, they'll blue lube em for you if you want to shoot smokeless, a hell of a hunting bullet at a hell of a price.

Bout darn time some one offered this. One classy looking rifle. If they ever offer it with a pistol grip stock I may get one. Imagine how many Mod 71's would of been spared a trip to the gun smith to be made into a .450 Alaskan if that rifle had been readily available.

Bravo

Just remember to tuck the lower tip of the curved butt plate into your armpit and blast away.

getting old and forgetful, does the 4590 have a different twist than a 4570?

The originals sure did!

I think the 45-90 was 1 in 32 and the 45-70 was 1 in 22.

Not sure what the modern guns run...someone who has one surely knows.

FOTIS - I want that rifle!! smile

Ummm, maybe I am blind, but I think Fotis’ pics are of a pistol grip stocked rifle?
