Colt Lightning Rifle
      #316828 - 26/05/18 07:44 PM

Anyone have any? I'd love to see more pics of them and hear your stories. Am tempted to get one but they don't come up in my price range very often. I've heard mixed responses on ability to shoot smokeless in them (lighter loads to replicate original factory ballistics?). Anyone confirm?

Cheers guys,

Troy- my bro has this one in .45 Colt. I've used it two years in a row for cowboy action shooting. What a great, fast shooting rifle. His stock wood in nicer than this one as he restocked it in a dark piece of Turkish Walnut.

I have one here in 32-20
Great rifle, old family piece - since it was new.

I shoot smokeless in it at reasonable and responsible levels, no issues.

I haven't been using a photo hosting site for some time.
Perhaps I'll square around with my old account and post some images. We'll see.
