Thinking my next long gun purchase will be a Lever Action and I'm curious who makes the best quality for the dollars right now. Chiappa makes some nice looking rifles, as does Henry, though I would prefer the side loading opposed to Henry's tube loading method. I have heard both Marlin and Winchester are on the downhill slope when it comes to fit and finish. Is there any company I'm missing as well? What say you? P.S. Primary purpose would be medium to large game hunting and target shooting. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
