Look up Big Horn Armory Model 89
.500 S&W lever action. Its a nice rifle, but it better be for the MSRP of $2000-3000
a .500 S&W lever-gun would have value as protection against large game like bear or moose, but it would be a good large game hunting caliber. Not by any means a long range caliber, but for thick forest where visibility is less than 100 yards, It would be mean on brown and black bear, moose, buffalo, any big game you can get close enough to be able to hit your mark.
Would punch a really big hole through whatever you shot it at.
