As you can see Frank. Pretty much anyone who ever bought one loves them. They're really isn't a whole lot not to like about them know matter what caliber you buy it in. Lever actions will still be made after most of us are dead and gone. My old 1981 Marlin 336 will be handed down a family member. Just haven't decided which one yet.

I had a Uberti 1873 but sold it due to being to pretty and pricey for the abuse I'd put it through. Tomorrow I'm picking up a Rossi Ranch hand in 45 Colt and already have a stainless follower, safety delete plug and higher front sight on order since all of the Ranch Hands seem to shoot 10-14" too high due to Rossi putting the same sights on them as their rifles.

If I go with another full length lever rifle, it will be a Rossi 92 so I don't feel too bad if it gets beat to hell. Now I need to find a leather drop leg holster for the Ranch Hand that dosn't cost too much and completely covers everything up to the lever. I know the options but even $145 is to much for something I'll probably never carry. I'll probably end up making my own.

Cimarron 1873 chambered in .44 WCF

Consider the .44 WCF chambering, also called the .44-40. It is the original chambering for the early Winchester rifles.

Of course the lever rifles & carbines are popular, and have remained so for over a hundred years.

I prefer them chambered in rifle cartridges, instead of revolver cartridges, myself.

The ubiquitous .30-30 is offered in bullet weights that are useful for a variety of tasks and conditions, and the ammunition can seemingly be found all over the lower 48.

I still miss my .444 Marlin, though.

There is a tale behind that rifle. It is a "special" gun in my collection because of it.

I have a Rossi Model 92 38/357. Shoots both without any problems. I chose pistol ammo as I have lots of it and it's readily available down here. Cheap to shoot too compared to rifle ammo. Don't know the muzzle velocity of a 357 exiting a 20" barrel but it's probably moving right along. Might be good for deer at 100 yards?

I just picked up my Ranch hand today. Put a leather piece on the back laced on the bottom with a tack on each side, changed the leather lace on the ring with a black sued piece and wrapped the lever with thick black leather lace. I'm just waiting on the taller front sight and stainless follower.

Lever actions and American deer hunters go together like strippers and breast implants.

Very cool. I looked at a 44mag Ranch Hand last week and almost snagged it. If it had been a 38 I would have taken it home.

I dont have any(to be honest i dont really need one as since i just varmint hunt there are not a lot of varmint type rounds that are made in lever action) but I love them and the design..IF I still deer hunted id love a 30-30 lever action that would be my gun for deer in the NY/PA woods.

Got this big boy 2 years ago with a 45 Colt Rossi and a 300 grain wide flat nose cast bullet.

General Firearms Forum

Gotta love the JMB designed Winchesters. 32 Winchester with a cast, gas checked bullet

Keep an eye out for a Savage M99 rifle chambered in .22 High Power.

I very much like lever action rifles. Have two, a Winchester Model 94 in 30-30 and a Marlin 1895 in 45-70.

Take one camping depending on the size of critters in the woods.

The only lever action I have is the Henry Golden Boy I purchased a few months ago and I love it. Thinking about getting another one is a larger caliber now.

Just had a Ruger 96/22 LR with scope follow me home from LGS. It uses the 10/22 family of magazines. Should be a fun gun.
