We need to go to the lever gun sites and pull some fans over here so we can have some conversations about the rifles that helped tame the West! Too many plastic gun fans here to appreciate the finer things available to gun owners! :lol: :lol:

You might be right. And I'm guilty of not spending much time in this area, despite loving the traditional rifles and owning a few of them.

I'm a BIG TIME 'Lever Guy' - I love them. Except for a M94 30.30 Winchester, I have nothing but Marlin lever actioned rifles - Opps, I forgot an M92 Rossi, in 454 Casull/.45 Colt - The other Marlins are in .357, 44 Mag. and .45-70 (3). I'd probably have more, but I haven't gotten around to it yet! I like Marlin over Winchester, because of the side ejection (instead of Winchester's top ejection system). My all time favorite for 'hold your hat to your head and let fly' are the stainless Guides.


Here are most - my sons have 'borrowed' a few! :lol:

I'm also thinking of buying the Alaskan (Take Down) .50 Mag.

.... that one is constantly calling me to write the check! :shock:

That Alaskan is one sweet looking rifle. That would be a hoot to have in bear country.

But then your 454 would be nice insurance to have also.

Proud owner of Marlin 30.30 and will be getting another one here soon. Speaking of guns that tamed the west...also have a Stoeger coach gun that I love to pieces.

Yup.

When I used to hunt, my older brother would try to get me to swap my 336c for his 94 because he didn't like getting hit in the face with ejected shells.

And then there's the whole scope thing.

Somewhere around here I have listed the 14 lever action rifles I own. I tend to favor Savages and Marlins.

I have a late 70's make Winchester model 94' and I love it.. The feel of the piece, solid and well balanced, is awesome. The 30/30 is a fantastic round.. It's a piece of history I'm glad to own and maintain. It's the perfect partner to my Ruger Blackhawk!

This not my own, but it's damn close!

Kick ass is right.

Check them out here, especially the ballistics and penetrating power.

I'm a huge fan of the leveractions. I've got a 1895XLR 45-70 that I love to death. Throw my Burris FF2 3-9x40 on there and it's one awesome working machine :lol:
