CITADEL LEVTAC-92 .357 MAG LEVER-ACTION RIFLE – 16.5″

CITADEL LEVTAC-92 .357 MAG LEVER-ACTION RIFLE – 16.5″. The Citadel LEVTAC-92 Lever Action Rifle brings modern improvements to a classic design. This Model 92 lever action rifle is chambered in .357 Magnum with an 8 round magazine tube and an 16.5 inch barrel.

Instead of a traditional wood forend, the LEVTAC-92 is outfitted with an aluminum M-LOK handguard for easily and securely attaching lights, lasers, and other accessories.

The muzzle is threaded for attaching muzzle devices such as brakes, flash hiders, and suppressors, making for an extremely quiet platform.

The top picatinny rail is perfect for mounting optics whether you want a red dot sight for quick target acquisition or a scope for taking more accurate long distance shots.

Additionally, it comes with a peep rear sight and a blade front sight installed. The stock is made from lightweight synthetic material and the loop has been enlarged for use with gloves.

A side loading gate allows you to quickly load rounds into the tube to ensure you never run dry. If you are looking for a 357 Magnum lever action rifle but want something with a little more modularity, you can’t go wrong with the Citadel LEVTAC92.

The New Citadel LEVTAC-92 Lever-Action Rifle Is a powerhouse

How does the Citadel LEVTAC-92 compare to other lever-action rifles? Does this new gun hold its own against the competition? It’s an impressive weapon with many features, including an American walnut stock and blued steel barrel with 20-inch barrel length.

But how does it stack up? We discuss that here in our full review of the Citadel LEVTAC-92 lever-action rifle. We’ll look at all its features as well as some of its pros and cons so you can determine if it’s the right gun for you or not.

Bullet Type

.357 Magnum, 12.5 Grains (mild load) or 15 Grains (Hot Load) factory load is recommended. FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) preferred for target shooting to prevent damage to rifling of rifle barrel by jacket material.

The .356 round nose bullet can be used for hunting and has acceptable accuracy out to 100 yards in lever guns with smooth barrels. For hunting, use only solid lead bullets weighing from 180 grs. to 250 grs., depending on caliber used as anything over that weight will cause dangerous pressure in these small framed rifles .

Never substitute a soft point or hollow point bullet in any of these weapons as they are not intended for such rounds. Soft points may break up causing possible injury to you and others around you if fired at close range. Hollow points have been known to expand upon firing due to gas leakage around case mouth.

Both types should never be used under any circumstances whatsoever! When reloading your own ammunition always start loads at least 10% below published starting loads found in loading manuals so as not to exceed maximum pressures listed in load data charts which are available from powder manufacturers,

gun magazines and various reloading supply houses like Hodgdon Powder Co., IMR Powder Co., Accurate Arms Co., etc. Do not exceed maximum loads even if you do find them listed elsewhere!

Frame Material

All components are machined steel. Uses one inch rails. Available with pistol grip and full stock or pistol grip only. Weight 4 pounds; length 32 inches. Chambered for .357 magnum cartridge with 16 1/2 inch barrel.

Sights include adjustable iron front sight, fiber optic rear sight and receiver mounted rail for scope mounting; magazine capacity 6 rounds; includes recoil pad, cleaning kit and owner’s manual (English) in hard plastic case.

Firing mechanism

The Citadel LEVTAC-92 uses a four-way firing system. Pulling on either trigger half way fires one shot, while pulling it all the way fires two shots. When both triggers are pulled simultaneously, they fire both barrels of ammunition at once.

There is also an option to switch from double barrel shooting to single barrel shooting by sliding a lever located under each trigger.

The first bullet will shoot out of whichever barrel has been chosen for single shot mode, and then it will automatically switch back to double fire mode if needed.

This can save ammo when hunting animals like deer or boar that often charge in headfirst, with no time for reloading before they are upon you. It’s also very useful in self defense situations where you need to be able to switch between killing your attacker and putting them down without killing them.

However, switching between modes takes some practice so be sure to take some time at home practicing how quickly you can change modes when your life depends on it. And don’t forget about safety!

Citadel LEVTAC 92 .357 Mag Lever-Action Rifle – 16.5 inches of unadulterated American badassery

One of the most iconic American-made lever-action rifles to ever be produced, Citadel’s LEVTAC 92 .357 Mag rifles are certainly one of the most unadulterated pieces of badassery ever crafted by human hands. When it comes to pure power and raw beauty, you really can’t get much better than this sweet little number right here.

Range Report

The Citadel LEVTAC 92 is a great rifle, with just one real con that I’ve been able to find: its price. Not that it’s outrageously overpriced; it certainly isn’t, considering what you get for your money.

But for a rifle costing less than $400, it may be too much for some to swallow when there are other rifles in that price range (or below) that offer similar quality at lower prices.

It’s hard to argue with how good Citadel makes their products though, so if you can afford it and want something well made from reputable companies like Leupold and Magpul then take a look at what Citadel has to offer; you won’t be disappointed!

The Citadel LEVTAC 92 is truly an American piece of hardware, which is why they named it after New York City’s infamous subway system—not because its magazine capacity happens to be thirty-two rounds.

What makes these rifles American? Well, they are manufactured by highly skilled gunsmiths in Texas using top-quality parts from US manufacturers like Timney Triggers and Shilen barrels.

All Citadel rifles have a unique twist on them: their bores have three grooves instead of two—something we don’t see very often here in America. Because each groove is deeper than those found on traditional firearms, muzzle velocity increases by approximately twenty percent as compared to guns with standard rifling.

Accuracy Test

Like most modern lever-action rifles, Citadel’s new Levetac 92 is chambered in .357 Magnum, a caliber that offers excellent accuracy across a wide range of bullet weights.

The rifle featured here is my personal favorite: Ruger’s superbly accurate Model 77 Mk II, which runs a bit less than $600 and can be purchased at just about any gun store worth its salt.

It comes with an adjustable tang sight and an H-S Precision Proprietary scope rail…which means it requires rings to mount a scope or other optics (I used Eagle Optics Talon 22x50mm side mounts). So how did it do? Very well, thank you.

I shot five 5-shot groups from 100 yards using three different loads: Hornady Critical Defense 125 grain FTX rounds, Federal Premium 125 grain Hi-Shok JHP rounds and Winchester USA 180 grain FMJ rounds.

All three loads averaged around 1 MOA—though some would argue 1 MOA isn’t all that impressive for a bolt action rifle shooting off sandbags from 100 yards away.

But remember: we’re talking about a lever action rifle with iron sights here—not even open sights! If you can shoot 1 MOA or better with iron sights from 100 yards out of your Citadel Levetac 92 .357 Mag Lever Action Rifle , then you’ve got yourself one helluva shooter on your hands!

Conclusion

Citadel seems to have designed a rifle that is ready for anything and will do its job without any need for special or extra ammo, or any attachments, or training… It will simply just deliver big caliber bullets into your target at a rate and speed that is hard to match by lever action rifles today.

I think if you were asked which rifle Citadel would produce, would say it was an old school long barrel rifle with fine design and finish. However what we got is something far greater than anyone could have expected from such a large manufacturer:

A new take on old school with modern bells and whistles to boot! This really is one hell of a gun. This Citadel LEVTAC 92 .357 Mag Lever-Action Rifle – 16.5 has all my approval marks and it should have yours too!

Citadel has delivered another amazing firearm in their LEVTAC line up. The Citadel name always delivers high quality products and they are leading their market.

These Citadel LEVTAC 92 .357 Mag Lever-Action Rifles are no exception; they are well made, accurate, fun to shoot, reliable firearms that everyone can enjoy shooting.

Whether you’re looking for a home defense weapon or hunting arm these Citadel LEVTAC 92 .357 Mag Lever-Action Rifles fit perfectly into either role and more!

They are lightweight enough to carry around easily yet heavy enough not to be affected by light winds while out hunting in open fields/countryside areas where there is little wind cover but still gives you great accuracy out past 100 yards when used correctly.

    MODERN DAY JOHN WAYNE

  2. BRAD MIKE

    FUN GUN

    This is a fun gun to shoot

  3. DANIEL ANTHONY

    NEW FAVORITE GUN TO SHOOT.

    I’ve always been a fan of lever actions. One of the first guns I shot as a kid was my Dad’s old Winchester in 22 WMR. I’ve been hooked since. This was my first lever gun purchase, and before I stumbled upon Citadel, I’d been planning on buying a Henry or Marlin. After reading the reviews and due to the great price, I decided to give this rifle a sRead more about review stating New Favorite Gun To Shoot!hot. It did not disappoint! The peephole site is easily adjustable for both windage and elevation, and the gold dot on the front site is surprisingly easy to see. The action appears to be a copy of the Winchester 1886 with the 2 locking bars that move up and down with the lever. I’ve had it out 3 times now and it’s been a blast! Would definitely recommend one if you’re on the fence.

    Almost a Five Star Gun! So much fun to shoot with a can.

    I really like this gun and wanted to give it 5 stars but can’t for 3 reasons. 1st reason the rail was bent when I took it out of the box, not a deal breaker because I would never mount anything in that location. 2nd reason I had to go to my local gun shop and get a shim so I could mount my silencer on the gun. The magazine tube extends out to far and if the silencer is not mounted straight it could cause a baffle strike. 3rd reason is the pick rail on top is not a standard pick rail size I tried a few different mounts and optics and non of them would fit with out movement. With all that said I would still buy another one. The action is amazing, the feel and weight of the gun is great. The best part about the whole thing is when shooting 38 special through it with my Silencer Co. 36m it is quieter than my pellet gun!! Absolutely amazing!! Everyone at the range was baffled at how quiet it was.

  5. DAKOTA D.

    Silence is Golden

    Had to file down the magazine tube cap in order to instal my silencerco ASR flash hider. Suppresses beautifully with my Hybrid 46
    The Levtac looks much sexier with a can on it

  6. Crescencio H.

    Extremely pleased with my purchase!
    Can’t wait to get out to the range. My entire process was pleasant and carefree. Thanks again keep up the great work!
