    J.M. Browning turned a lever-action into full-auto.

    Is it weird that I want one of those short stainless Marlin .357 leverguns with a top rail and MLOK handguard?

    A buddy of mine bought one of these and brought it over to show it off. I had to hide my disappointment as I am kind of a purist when it comes to guns and I look for rich looking walnut furniture and classic lines. The picatinny rail kind of wrecked it for me. Very versatile with the six round capacity, but I wonder how resale will be down the line.

    His dream is to relocate to the Pacific NW so it probably is the exact rifle that he needs there!

    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 also have a Rossi '92 but mine is a .45 Colt I had it slicked up for CAS but it's too complicated and slow. But the Marlin '94 Cowboy Special in .45 Colt is a snap to disassemble and clean plus there are several kits on the market to smooth and lighten the action that make it nearly as fast as the Winchester '73's and it's clones which are hands down the favorite of CAS shooters.

    One thing I never liked about lever guns is after shooting, you had to clean the bore from the muzzle. That's not the recommended way, but it was necessary. I can drop the bolt out of my bolt guns in a few seconds. Autos are a bit more a pain for that, too. BUT, the advent of bore snakes has solved that little conundrum. I've yet to get one in .357, though, for the Rossi. Heck, I don't shoot it that much anymore. I have .22, 7mm, and .30 caliber bore snakes. The .22 is the one, of course, that gets the most use around here. I have lots of .22s between handguns and rifles. One thing I like about lever guns, they're way easy to carry in the field one handed. That big slab of a receiver is right at the balance point. That's a reason they're good choices for heavy brush, not the cartridge, but the rifle. And at ranges you shoot still hunting brush, .30-30 is as good as any.

    With the Marlin "94's take out the lever screw pull out the lever pull out the bolt and clean from the breach it's simple and all most fool proof ....

    Sure they are from two at the top ROSSI 92 .357 & Henry GB.22 LR.

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 gifted my Marlin 1894c in 44 Mag to my oldest son and replaced it with a Henry in 357 to pair with my Security Six and, I guess, my SP101. If I go with another lever it will be in 45 Colt to pair with my Uberti 45 Colt clones.

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!
