Colt Lightning rifles on Forgotten Weapons.
 
Full30.com debuted a new video overnight, it will appear on YouTube later today if not already. The three frame sizes are discussed, including a .22 Long version. The medium frame version shown is a .32-20, a large frame version is also showcased. We don't often see videos of the Lightnings, they weren't nearly as popular as Winchester's lever guns, Colt had a 20-1 advantage in the market.

Judging by responses, none, this is not a popular post, but for any of you who have an original centerfire Lightning there is a response to Yearzero, me, delineating safety checks for them. It is a very thorough response and I cannot recommend it too highly.

I watched the video, good info in it. I've got 4 small frames and a pistol grip small frame also.

Sounds like you have a nice collection of Colt .22 rifles, very good! That pistol grip version sounds interesting, any chance you could post some photos of your collection?

I meant to say that Winchester had the 20-1 advantage in the market!

Excellent video. Well worth watching even if one is not a Lightning enthusiast. Lots of background info there as well.
