I ran a search on the forum and found people talking about how they would like a .327 lever gun. I've read gun writers, write about how great an idea it would be to have a lever action in .327.

Here's the question. Do lever action .327 exist? If so, who makes 'em?

If not are the any substantial rumors that one is in the works?

No idea, I don't think any companies have made one yet, even though it would be a pretty decent light recoiling fun gun or small game gun. I also think that the .327 is a neat idea, a 115 grain .32 JHP at around or a little over 1300 feet per second has some good practical applications. It definitely isn't a .357 Mag, but it's better than .38 and the spare round in a small frame or pair of extra rounds in a heavy-medium frame revolver is another cool advantage.

I'm a fan of the concept. Not sure how it works in real life though. I guess I just like medium power handgun cartridges like hot 9mm and moderate-warm .357 Magnum.

Been many deer taken with 32-20 in rifles and carbines, I know. The 327 would be capable of the same with a little margin on the upper end. Good idea, I'd like to see a light bolt gun on the basis of the old Savage Model 23 series done up in 327.
