    I don't come over to the rifle section much, but I want to know if anyone makes a lever action rifle in 45ACP.

    I want a lever action rifle and I'm buying a square deal reloader to reload 45acp only. It would help if I could keep all my guns in the same caliber.

    Does anyone know?

    Nobody makes one or has recently that I have heard of.

    Supposedly there were some el Tigre Spanish copies of the Winchester 92 either made in or converted to .45 ACP for use perhaps in Argentina where that was the service pistol caliber.

    Ed Harris had Bob Snapp convert a Marlin '94 from .44 Magnum to .45 ACP.
    He would not even chronograph it with hardball so nobody would get the idea he could or should put roundnose FMJ in a tubular magazine. But it worked fine with flatpoints and hollowpoints.

    I don't consider it a practical thing to do. Maybe you could round up a Marlin Camp Carbine automatic .45 ACP.
