I am looking at buying a Uberti/Cimmaron Arms Texas Brush Popper lever action rifle in .45 L.C. Does anyone own one or have experience with this particular rifle? Any input from you all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

probably ANY .45 lever action will get the job done since your range is gonna be short, here in Texas it is a great hog stopper in brush, dont know what you got in mind in your part of the country.

I own three Uberti 1873 lever guns -- two in .357 and one in .45LC --- and ALL of them have been 100% trouble free and VERY accurate thru 1000s of rounds in Cowboy Action matches.

Now that the .45 has a rim on it they work in lever guns vs back in in the 1800s when they would not feed due to a lack of a rim.

Cant really say why Winchester or Marlin didnt off their lever rifles in .45 Colt, but personally thinking it wasnt the lack of the rim. The .45 Colt was brought out in 1872, it was and still is a rimmed cartridge. Very simular to the 44-40 which what used at the time in both levers and handguns.

I love my little 16 inch barreled Win 94 Trapper in .45 Colt.

Winchester and Colt were not very "neighborlly" toward each other ever since Colt started to make "revolver rifles" and Winchester then counterd with makeing a few {10?} Winchester revolver handguns ---- then IIRC , they both came to a agreement for more or less --- Colt makes handguns and Winchester would stick to building rifles. This was in the mid-1880s , I think.
