lamar g, are you sure that this gun is a ruger? I thought ruger levers only came in 22rimfire, and 44 mag.
Brownings only go up to 300 win mag.
If they do make a lever that big, it would be a thumper!

big country, yes it is a ruger. it looks new, but the old fella that has it is 90 yrs old. it could be from the fiftys or sixtys the way he takes care of his guns.

I assume, if it is a Ruger, that instead of being a lever action it only resembles one; most likely a Ruger No. 1 single shot with it's Browning High Wall type of appearance, which sort of has a lever type appearance. Ruger has certainly never manufactured a true lever action in .458 WinMag.
