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.

Fotis, do you plan to do BP or smokeless?

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?

Dang OldGrayWolf,
I am the old and blind one. That pic from Fotis is a pistol grip stock. For some reason I focused on the other two rifles. I think I see why my wife gets irritated with me some times now...….

That butt plate is why I sold off my Browning 1886. have an original Winchester 1886 Light rifle that is much nicer to shoot despite its lighter weight.

I just bought a 1886 45-90 with a 20' barrel,it comes up real nice,I loaded some Hornady 350's & took it to the range,real accurate @ 50 offhand so far with sights.

Wow!! You done good.....that's gorgeous!!

Absolutely gorgeous! They are doing a phenomenal job. As an avid fan of pre 1900 86's and model 71's, I hate to admit it however they are making them in a class with the originals.
