View Full Version : I saw the most wonderful rifle at the NRA show

At the NRA show, there was a Taurus Lightening in .45Colt. Cool gun. Pump. 14 rounds.
But the darling for me was across the display:
Model: M32C
Caliber: .32 H&R Magnum
Blue or stainless
Lever action
10 rounds
16” barrel
Adjustable sights
32” Overall
Button Rifled Accuracy barrel
72 oz.
Short, light, comes on target easily. Very, Very nice. I told my wife about it and she said she wanted one. So, I can get one for her and shoot it myself.

I think the some of the coolest guns I've ever seen at a gun show were a matched pair of mint condition, limited commemorative Swiss K31s, with gold inlays, etc., chambered in .22lr.

Really odd...can you describe the M32C more? Taurus' own site has it all screwed up. 1) Does not show a picture 2) describes it as Lever Action on the front page (of the what's new page) but when clicked on the referenced link/page describes as pump. Is it the Lightning or a Rossi Model 92-variant lever, etc.? Sounds cool, whatever it is.

It is most definitely a lever action. it is based on the .22 and .17 rifles. The pumps are the .45Colt and the .357/.38
if the 2005 catalog is still available for download, get that and look down to see a picture.
it is very short, very light and the action is smooth (for a trade show unit).
it would make a great Cowboy Action rifle for a smaller person. Or for a larger person. i would love to shoot it.

You live in TX and race a Miata? I didn't think they allowed anything less than 800 rhwp Supra's and 1100 hp Viper's inside the Houston city limits. :D

Oh and about your post, Ive always had a soft spot for pistol-caliber rifles. Always have seemed to be very nice, comfortable, good shooting guns.
