Over the past decade numerous companies have tried to make a replica of this famed pump-action rifle originally made by Colt. Only Navy Arms, the company that founded the replica firearms industry, has produced a version that combines perfection in functioning with superior fit and finish that no other can equal.
Working with Davide Pedersoli of Italy, famed for their high-quality replica firearms, the Navy Arms Lightning features a stock made from hand-selected, Grade 1 American Walnut, beautifully checkered at the wrist and forend.
The receiver and furniture are bone-charcoal color case hardened in the United States, accented with nitre blued screws and a high-polish blued full octagonal barrel.
The Navy Arms Lightning has a unique coil-spring extraction system that ensures fast, high ejection of spent cartridges. Unlike other maker's systems that have proven to be troublesome to shooters.
Sights are a semi-buckhorn rear and gold-bead dovetail front sight. The upper tang is also drilled and tapped to accept the Marble Arms peep tang sight.
The Navy Arms Lightning Available in both 20" and 24" and in both .45 Colt and .357. There are other Lightning replicas on the market, but there is only one Navy Arms Lightning, and it is, by far, the best.
