    Are there any revolvers in .454 Casull floating around?

    As per the title. I can't seem to find any in New Zealand. A few lever action rifles but that's it. Does anyone have one?

    i shot one in the usa years back, with all that recoil and a narrow metal/wood grip it hurts to fire it (but in a good way)

    I know of a Freedom Arms single action in Ch-Ch but don't think it is for sale.

    They will shoot the 45 long Colt, 454 Casull and of course the mighty 460

    I've found two in NZ, but man are they expensive.

    I'm also trying to purchase one from the states when I'm there later in the year but haven't yet figured out how to get it out of the USA without running the risk of becoming Bubbas bitchs bitch for the next 25 years.

    Cheers

    Hah! It'll run you about 1700-1800 NZD once you've converted and added duties. But god only knows about export/import. I think I saw one for about $2700 in NZ. I guess they figure all the dicking around is worth a grand.

    Yep

    Last time I enquired they were $2700nzd here

    So there's a savings to be had plus the added bonus of importing one for myself.

    The savings would get me some pretty cool glass to mount on it too.

    Importing is the easy part, getting it out of the states legally is the hard part.
