I was raised on a 1886 Winchester lever action.

I love to feel the slick smooth action of the gun as the lever is pushed forward to eject, and the lack of resistance and silken smooth sliding of the steel parts when loading the next round. The mechanics of an old lever action is like an art form, to experience.

Lever guns are beautiful machinery.
