Finally hunted one of these puppies down. Couldn't find anyone local who could get one, and even out of state dealers, couldn't either. Midwest Gun Exchange in Mishawaka, for some reason had 6 of them.. This one is chambered in 44 magnum. Rossi Ranch Hand. Lever Action Pistol. 6+1. 12" barrel. A tad under 24 OAL.

Some Video:

Here's the Ranch Hand with the Hornady 300 XTP round. As you can see, this gun shoots kinda high at short range so I missed the clay:
Here's take 2 and I still missed the first clay block

Here's me messing around with the Ranch Hand and I eventually did hit the clay with it.

Overall impressed. Kinda of a niche gun with not a lot of practical use, but it's fun. The loading port will need some smithing (need to file some sharp edges down), but it ran 100% yesterday. 75 rounds no trouble

it's not bad. It does rub your middle finger while firing, but it's not bad.

I have had one supposedly on order for a long time. I want the one in .45lc. I can hardly control myself. I have not got to actually hold or look at one in person but my 'gun guy' went to Shot Show this year and he did. He said he had no idea what a person would do with it. I told him that was why I wanted one.
