Big Horn Armory brings a new big-bore, lever-action design to life, introducing its Scout rifle chambered in .500 S&W.

The 7-pound lever-action design is built on the company’s BHA Model 89 platform featuring a 17-4 stainless steel, nitrited barreled action. The receiver is coated in a Hunter Black matte black finish while the buttstock and forend boast a black laminate with synthetic satin finish.

The buttstock is topped with a 1-inch recoil pad for comfortability. The Scout uses a Picatinny rail for accessory mounting and also offers a Skinner Aperture rear sight and white dot front sight.

Standard barrel length is 18-inch. However, the company does offer additional barrel options in 16- and 22 inches.

“Big Horn Armory’s success is a combination of combining legendary firearms platforms, such as the lever-action (and recently the AR) and big game calibers,” Greg Buchel, president of Big Horn Armory, said in a news release. “With the Scout rifle, we are incorporating all the features in a great, multi-purpose work-horse of a rifle. Our Scout is short, easy to shoot and utilizes the .500 S&W cartridge.”

The Scout rifle is available from Big Horn Armory with a price tag of $2,799.
