    That’s a mighty fine herd you got going now.

    Mind giving us a listing of what they are?

    Oh, and that’s probably the best guarded hallway in America!

    I don't really flip over lever guns. They're very complicated and a pain to take apart. I'd rather either shoot an auto or a bolt gun. But, I'm a hunter. I've only shot one deer with the Rossi. It came in REAL handy during the .22 drought to keep me shooting with light .38 loads. I cast a 105 grain SWC and load it over 2.3 grains of Bullseye. It's 1.5" at 25 yards accurate, not a tack driver, but good enough for plinking.

    I love lever actions, but I only own one, a Marlin 30-30. My son is chomping at the bit to own that one, and when he eventually leaves the house, I'll probably gift it to him so I need to start thinking about at least one replacement. I'd really love to own a 45-70, shot that at Sand Lake a few years ago and I was hooked. I'd also like to own one in 357 magnum, to standardize on my revolver caliber. And, I wouldn't be opposed to owning another 30-30 either.

    I have just sold my Marlin 444ss. Great rifle, powerful and very accurate. Lever guns are a favorite in my stable, probably cos I'm a southpaw. I had a fellow shooter tell me it was only good for use in thick brush at short range, then I showed him how easy it was to smack bowling pins with it at 300 yards. I also like the way the .444 Marlin can ventilate a car. Never hunted with it, but it seems capable.

    I had to take the bolt/action apart on the Rossi to get a piece of brass out that broke off in the chamber. It was a pain. I swore off lever guns after that. I don't really need 'em, though, for hunting. Bolt guns generally offer superior accuracy....generally.

    Designs of lever guns vary, though. The BLR looks like it'd be pretty simple, carries a box magazine with REAL hunting calibers. I always thought one in .325 WSM would be pretty awesome for the Alaskan resident, especially in stainless. The BLR uses a rack and pinion style action, simple and looks strong as an ox.

    There's something to be said for lever action rifles and America.

    Wow...those are some beautiful collections!

    I acquired my Marlin 44 Magnum some 7-8 years ago and would never part with that rifle. I can load it from mild to wild and though I don't hunt, I would not feel under gunned for most anything..maybe stopping at a brown bear. I shoot the 45-70 in a Springfield 1873 and don't think that I would want to take that punishment in a lighter carbine.

    My prized lever gun is a pre-war Winchester '94 chambered in 32 Winchester Special. It doesn't get out much, but I do need to get it out for some exercise.

    Lever action rifles have been around for quite some time and have come in so many design configurations.

    Browning wanted to capture the lost energy of expelled gas and came up with his experimental 1873 Gas Flapper back around 1890. This lead to his creations of semi and full auto weapons. How cool would it be to have this hanging on your wall?
