Magnum Wheel Man,

Go to the SASS wire & type lightning into the search engine. You will get information overload about the various Colt Lightning rifles. Rossi models are pretty much regarded as expensive tomato stakes, AWA and Uberti models can be good or bad, and Pedersolis are usually very good. I have one of the early AWAs in 44-40 that had some feeding problems in the beginning due to hammer spring interference and incorrect AOL. Once that got sorted out, it has been a very reliable rifle; although my main match rifle is still a Uberti '66.
