No ARs or AKs allowed to be owned: Lever action or bolt?

Considering a full-blown AWB comes into effect, would you turn to a lever-action or scout-type bolt action to play the role?

Having grown up using a lever action; I would go with that. I currently own a Marlin 1894 in .357 magnum that would be formidable up to 150 yards.

What would you choose?

I have a Winchester 94 that I got for my 12th birthday. It's seen a lot of rounds and if I can see it I can hit it with that rifle.

I would get few lever and few bolt.
But would go to revolvers for just target shooting.
But that's the next few on my wish list anyway.

I am pretty good with a bolt gun. I'd also prefer to avoid handgun rounds in a rifle if I can - although capacity would certainly be enhanced in a lever gun.

Maybe they make 10 round magazines for one of these bad boys. That would be my choice.

Right now my main rifle/carbine is CZ 527 FS .223. I also have the 1903A3 that I built for my father, but that is a long, heavy sporter, not a general purpose rifle.

I'm looking at a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight Compact .308 for a more general purpose rifle. I am pretty sure I can fabricate a base for a front mount scope, similar to the band type rear sight bases used on some classic rifles. If so then cutting the action for stripper clips and adding iron sights would set it up as a scout to my satisfaction.

I have no fond memories of the M16 weapon system, I have considered buying one many times over the years but could never convince myself to drop the money. The AK has too many quirks for my taste. Although it is a fine weapon for what it is, I just don't want one.

If I had a double action .357 I would also consider a lever gun in that caliber, but I just can't find one that feeds 9mm or .45 ACP reliably. I don't know if I would make it my main rifle, it would be hard to give up the accuracy and range of a .223 or .30-06.

I just picked up a Marlin 1894 in .44mag, a Uberti Cattleman in .357 and a Heritage arms .22/.22mag. combo. just in case. I figure I couldn't go wrong with any of them.

Either would get the job done. However, my M1 Garand would be my choice if I need to deploy a rifle.

I've always been interested in lever actions, but never got around to buying one. I'd probably use a ban as an excuse to finally get one. I was looking at another forum yesterday and saw the lever action referred to as the AAR. Appalachian Assault Rifle.

No, no, no!

Apparently you folks haven't been paying close attention to Piers and the D.C. crowd.

Under the new AWB, we won't be allowed to possess any firearm that exceeds the fire rate of a musket..... just as the Second Amendment intended!

I'd go lever. They're just too cool. Probably .357mag, but maybe .44.
Get a pistol that takes the same cartridge. It'd be like the press always tells us before new gun laws start: it's going to be the wild, Wild West out there.

I was pretty happy with my lever guns until the MF'ers '94 ban, then I wanted high capacity everything.

Both - they serve different purposes. If you're fighting criminals, the lever action, since by the nature of it, you can't help being pretty close. If you are fighting the government, as in the 2nd Amendment, individuals and small groups would only have a chance against organized military forces if they could snipe from long range, so I'd say bolt action.

If I have just a bit of cover and you are shooting at me from 100 yards or more with an AR-15 and I am shooting back with either my Ruger Scout or my Steyr Scout bolt guns, I think you are gonna lose.

I think I would stick with the ol' Marlin 336. I have all kinds of tacticool stuff but the .30-30 will do 95% of anything I will ever ask of a rifle. I also might pick up a Remington pump rifle in .308. By the way, I don't see this happening.
