Lever action rifle/shotgun
« on: October 14, 2020, 04:37:28 PM »
I am putting this here as there is no general firearms topic.
They have lever action rifles and shotguns, including rifled barreled 12Ga. shotgun rifle.
It is interesting to see what goes on in the rest of the world, and in this case guns made to by-pass Aussie laws.
On the home page intro there are two 308s not in the catalog yet

Here is another firm that has a lever action shotgun plus a revolver .410 shotgun.

I've just never felt the love for a lever gun. I have a couple beauties that other than being pretty, don't do a thing for me.

At one time Marlin made a 410 leaver on the 336 action I see them at gun shows ever once in  a while

When I first got into Law Enforcement here in Texas, every state trooper was issued a Model 28 Smith, an 870 Remington 12 gauge, and either a Model 94 Winchester, or a Marlin 336, both in 30-30.

My first duty weapon was a 4 inch Diamondback, an 870, and a 1958 Model 94 my dad gave me.

Then after a shootout across the river where 3 Oklahoma troopers were killed,  and 1 wounded in less than an hour, Texas troopers were shortly moved to the Ruger Mini14.
I had already had several, and carried one with me that day of the shootout, and was carrying it when we crossed the river into Oklahoma to help.
I still over the years kept my Winchester, and gave it to my oldest son a couple a years ago.

I've always loved the levers, but thought that Marlins were the best, but Winchester the best carrying, and best looking.

For my line of work, when Colt started cranking out A1s, and A2s, I switched to the AR15s.

Never did have a lever action shotgun, and never wanted one. Who knows. I might've liked them to.

It doesn't really matter how you "think" it is, but how it ACTUALLY is.
