The H010WL in .45-70 is a trim powerhouse with its 18.43” barrel under semi-buckhorn rear and tall brass bead front sights. A checkered pistolgrip walnut stock, sling swivel studs, and ventilated black rubber recoil pad fill out the package. Again sharing the .45-70 brass Wildlife Edition’s engraving pattern, a 24K gold relief profile of a bear adorns the left side of the blued frame inside gold-accented scroll, line, and braided borders, with a gold relief image of a moose head on the right side. Built to bring home the bacon (or whatever your hunt takes you after), these special steel-framed Wildlife models are a cut above, and a point of pride.
Like their brass cousins, these steel-framed models acknowledge a long history of hunting, and the lever action’s well-earned place in it for over 150 years. More subdued, with blued steel frames and furniture, they’re also lighter in weight for long days on foot through dense brush and high mountain terrain. Steel weighs less than our hardened brass material, and the round barrels here also reduce weight for a trimmer hunting package that loses nothing in performance in the field.
