    O.A.L.???????????????

    With the recent reclassification of the Rossi Backpacker I would doubt these would end up anything but restricted, but it would be nice thats for sure!

    Just looked it up! 24 inches long.:C And classed as a pistol in the U.S. Seems more than enough reason to class this restricted here in Bananda!

    I've been looking online a bit lately, and can someone PLEASE explain the 1550 dollar cost of guns like this??? I love them, I need one, but can one not be made cheaper???
    Levers don't need to be flared. Just barrel chopped, and stock shortened. I guess I keep wanting to see a basic , functional "mare's leg", that costs roughly the same as a regular lever gun.

    Buy a lever gun, pay a gunsmith to chop it.

    As soon as it goes less than 18 1/2 it becomes restricted!

    The best way to have something like this in a non restricted form for a cheap price, would be to have a 16 inch win model 94 and chop the stock, while keeping the overall length over 26 inches.

    Would be 4 inches longer than the ranch hand but might be the best way.

    That lever is ridiculously large!
    All Legacy and Rossi needs to do is ship mare's legs with full stocks to Canada and let us trim them ourselves..... and put a better lever on there!

    Lever type/size is a personal thing. Some folks like one type,some the other, just as with the standard length rifle.

    I was told at the booth, that they thought this rifle would be considered a handgun here.
    That said, to say that the Americans have a limited understanding of Canadian gun law is about as big an understatement as I could make.
    That's based of the reactions I got to my explanations when shown (all kinds of) stuff we can't own, or can't use, or is restricted.
