What i'm reading about them from those that own them is, they need quite a bit of tinkering. Horrible triggers, rib parts falling off, and horrible sights. Nothing that can't be fixed, but it looks like they won't win any awards for quality either...

They are NOT designed to handle any heavy loads either, so factory load pressures it is!...

Yes, I believe these rifles should be held to "trapdoor Springfield" pressure levels.......

.........Sooooooo....why would anyone want to buy one if it can't be loaded up past the pitiful trapdoor ammo specs?? With a lockup like that and proper barrel steel, I just fail to see the why???

i have been trying since 02 to get one of these,Remington, since they have started importing these very recently has changed quite a bit,walnut instead of birch.they (remington)because of todays liability reason say the gun is made to handle regular 45/70 ammo.they will not be responsible for what happens if you load it full of buffalo bore rounds and fire both barrels.i do not handload so over the counter 405 gr remington sp will do fine for me.i have talked to others that just got this gun and both said they have been playing with heavier loads.it also comes in 30/06 which is much more presure then the 45/70.but if anyone has ever priced a double before then i guess you know what i m saying.

Trap Door Specs.?? Where did that information come from?? Not arguing, just asking??

Personally I can not believe they built the rifle to Trap Door pressure specs.

I read 2 reviews on the Leverguns site. Both guys over there liked what they recieved. But that is only 2 reviews.

My question would be how well regulated are they?? And at what distance?? Tom.

you can change the regulation slightly with a jack screw installed.2 of the guys that i talked too both said 3and 4 inches at 75yds,i have read reports that ,on some of the older ones the wood looked like an old stud,i know they have changed a few things including the wood.it is now walnut,when i called the dealer about the load restrictions,he said it is a disclaimer so if some one puts 2 buffalo bore super hot loads in it and touch off both barrels and something happens ,they wont be held responsible.i got some remington 405 gr sp.if i ever hunt something that is not big enough for(another continent) that load i would not be carrying a 45/70.i also have a 450 guide gun and a cz 550 in the 458 lott or 458 win(it shoots either or)and many guys say the 450 marlin and hot 45/70 s are close to the lott,NO THEY ARE NOT.

I believe the bar pressure level is stamped on the gun... Also, Rem. has stated to NOT load them up!
