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!

25 lever action repeaters, but if single shots such as Sharps and High Walls count, add another eight.

Here are some pics of a few of them. My "newest" is a Browning BLR .325 WSM and the oldest date back to the early 1900's.

OP, I am a fan of lever guns. One that I still kick myself over is a Winchester 94-22 that I sold around 1994 for $175.00 during a weak moment. If I ever see one again and I have the cash I'm buying it on the spot. tom.

Yeah, I know putting a Red Dot on a beautiful rifle like that is vulgar but my eyes demand it.

So..just what IS the purpose of the Mares Leg?

Not a rifle, not a pistol...how do you shoot the thing?

Or is this just a Steve McQueen "Wanted Dead or Alive" flashback?
