Hope you all fill your lever gun wish lists. I have them from 1873 to current. Savage Winchester and Marlin. All calibers. I have shot deer, elk, moose, and bears with them including a 9 1/2 foot brownie with a .348 model 71 that was hauled all around the state in an airplane by a Dr. friend of mine. Take them out and use them. I even have an 86 in .45-70 that was used to take Beluga whales.

Nice rifles. Older Marlin 336 30-30s are some of the best.

For some time I've been wanting a .44 Mag lever gun. I guess it's about time I bought one.

My EMF Hartford Rossi is a .357/.38 that didn't like .38 Special ammo. If you cycled the lever too fast, the round would pop out the top of the reciever. The solution was to use a "Snakebite" mould that was part of a group buy maybe 10 years ago when I was heavier into SASS. This bullet is a 160 grain RNFP but it's longer than other designs. Now I load this bullet in my .38 Special loads and the function problems are gone. IIRC, a few of the Marlin shooters also had this problem running .38s through their 1894 rifles as well so there were some of those shooters too that got in on that group buy as well.
The only 38 bullet I use is the lead 160 grain SWC, which does function fine.
Could be, a different bullet nose, weight, length, design, might give a problem.

Actually the 38 functioned so well I was going through a lot of ammo. Even though it was my reloads I was blasting through a lot of 38 Special (Wanted Dead or Alive fast firing from the hip ).
I was glad to see Henry come out with the 22.

I have a Henry 22 lr and love shooting it. Bought used at cabelas and it is very accurate with open sites. Would love to get a lever in 357/38 next.

I had a Winchester 94 thutty-thutty twenty years ago and I hated it. The action was rough and the feeding was abominable.

I'd like to get a BLR in .308 but I heard that the internals had some plastic parts that weren't too durable.

I think that I'd like to hunt up a vintage Savage 99.

I love shooting the 22lr but the 22wmr is the one that makes the "tacticool" guys giggle like little girls when they try it.

It its impossible not to have a big grin on your face when you're shooting either of the 22's.

Love leverguns!!!!!

Marlin 1895G in .45-70 Government
Marlin 1895CB in .45-70 Government
Marlin 1894CB in .44 Magnum
Winchester 94 "Trapper" in .44 Magnum



Right now, the .45-70 is the only Government that I trust.

That sounds like a great signature line!!! I agree but my taste runs more with my Browning 1886 SRC.

I think Henry's Lever guns are a blast. I tend to giggle a little when shooting my 22 cal Henry! Want to also add another Henry ASAP. Maybe a 357, or a 44 mag?
Had a Win 30-30, good rifle, hard to find a range to shoot it in the winter.
Have fun.

I despise Winchester lever action rifles. The action of the lever is rough, the lever is loose and it almost seems like all of the internals of the receiver drop out of the bottom of the receiver with each action of the lever. The one my brother owns is a top eject which makes even less desirable.

The Marlins.... Oooooh, like butter

I'm rediscovering levers. Got 2 in the last year to add to the 2 I already had, and I plan on 2 more before the year is over. Picked up a .357 Rossi M92 16" today. At Walmart of all places. I couldn't be happier. Plan to order a Henry Big Boy in .357 later this year, and a Marlin 336 when I find a nice used one for a decent price. Pawn shops here are full of them, but most are a little beat up. I'm certain that if I could only have one long gun, it would be a lever gun. Just not sure which one.

If I were you, I'd make it my mission in life to get a Colt lever action. I've never seen one in person, but have seen them in books

Not much to look at with a birch stock, but here's my Marlin 1894 in .44 mag.

I just get a kick out of this picture of my nephews posing next to my newest hat rack (taken with a 240 grain lswc I cast in the garage).

The only thing I think handles better than a lever action rifle is an over / under shotgun...

Not if I beat you to it. I'm convinced that there is only one and it gets sold and re-sold. My turn next!

I shot a 1930s vintage Savage 99 in .300 Savage and it was a beautiful thing. The lady wouldn't sell it to me and the darn thing got stolen a few years later.

The remake Savage 99 back in the 1990s was pretty bad with fit & finish. So I think that I'm going to hunt me up an old Savage.

My old Savage is a pleasure to shoot, still has the original Lyman Alaskan scope my wife's grandfather put on it.

The .300's actually seem to be the easiest to get and most affordable, it's a decent round and is very easy to load for.

I have a couple nice .30-30s from Winchester and Marlin. I'd like to pick up a 16" flush mag .44mag to go with my .44mag handguns someday. I've been putting this off to play the NFA game for a while now though.

Yeah, the pistol caliber guns are cute and all and the .30-30 rifles are fun too but I tend to like them a little bigger!
