TTAG Tactical Lever Rifle Project: Crimson Trace Solid Model

Robert,

Here’s a screen shot of the computer solid model of the adapter part as well as a rendering of the final assembly for the Cowboy Assault Rifle Project Gun. I came in today and ran a 3D prototype on our SLA machine to verify fit on the barrel and mag tube. I need to make a few adjustments to the model to mate up with the contour of the stock foregrip as you can see in the close-ups of the proto. We should be machining the final by the end of the week. Hope you enjoy. [Prototype after the jump.]

    Oh man. That looks mega cool.

    Fantastic.

    I love the way it doesn’t ruin the line. I’ll take one for my .45-70, please.

    “Cowboy Assault Rifle”

    Gasp! There’s that word again. lol

    1. I think it should probably be Modern Cowboy-Style Replica Modern Sporting Rifle. Or something.

        Modern Cowboy Action Rifle with lever thingy that goes up… and down, and up and down, and up and down…. well, you get the idea.

          Sir, you have officially made my day not suck. I tip my hat to you.

    That looks sweet! I’m using the info from this forum to possibly make some mods to a NIB Marlin 336 BL I picked up for 450.00.

      That is a interesting concept adding a laser on the forearm grip like that. The only downside I see if the button used to operate the laser is a push to activate release to deactivate instead of push on push off. Me with a short LOP or having short arms would find that uncomfortable having my hand that far forward on the stock.

    As cool as this is….I just don’t see it selling well at all for Crimson Trace.

    Might pick one up when they are liquidating them at CDNN or Graf & Sons

    would be good to use for the deer on my Marlin 1894C

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      This laser is being mounted to an 1894c. More reports and mods to come!

      1. avatar KC says:

        When might these be available?

  7. avatar Blueskybob says:

    Looks like a winner! Could use one on my Marlins .450 and .44 mag!

  8. avatar Matt Walker says:

    Makes the 1894 into the definitive home protection rifle

  9. avatar Don says:

    That is so much awesome.

    -D

    So I notice you loose the sling mount now?

  11. avatar Jander says:

    OMG…you must bring this thing to market immediately. Even better if you minimize the branding and “technical” lines to fit the lines of traditional lever action design aesthetics. I think you’d sell the everloving crap out of these if lever gun enthusiasts like myself felt like we could put one on without adding a strange “tactical” accessory onto the front of a tooled leather strap and buttcuff clad traditional cowboy tool. Even if you don’t, you’ll still have success with the tactical cowboy gun community who paint wood black and whatnot, but make it discreet and you’ve got a sure market winner.

    My $.02

    I’m currently considering a Rossi Ranch Hand. The 1st thing I thought of was how a Laser sight would help make it a more viable option in HD or in the woods boar hunting.

    it this project still under consideration? I would be happy to conduct a field test on a Prototype for the Rossi Ranch hand.

  13. avatar Mark Carter says:

    I’ll buy one of these now if you have one to fit a .357 hex barrel rossi.

  14. avatar David Green says:

    Hello, love the design are you currently selling this product or near future?

  15. avatar Craig says:

    im in line to purchase add a sling nut too it fist though. it will make may rossi .44mag with 15″ barrel the badest ass gun in the safe! bring it on!

  16. avatar robert says:

    looking for a green laser sight for my henry 22 mares leg can you help me out to find one thank you robert

  17. avatar Sean says:

    I wanna hook my sisters Rossi ranch hand with a green laser. Her birthday is around the corner . Help please. Thank you

  18. avatar nick says:

    How do I get one of these? I.have to have one!

  19. avatar Don Don S. says:

    That’s nice. Make one to replace end cap at end of tube magazine. I can deal with one less round then it would be snag free and everyone can keep their sling nut.

    Is this being manufacturered yet? I would love one since there is a lot of dangerous game where I live ( well to my animals, not so much to me) and my farm gun is my henry 44mag. This would make me a little more confident to pull the trigger in case my dogs ect get into it with a coyote ect. Don’t wanna hit them by accident.
