Currently, I have 3 glocks (two 19s and a 43) and a 357 stainless security six, 4" barrel, that my range shooter friend refers to as the "Resolver." I also have 2 22 rifles, a semiautomatic and a stainless bolt action. I would like to add a 357 rifle to the collection. I had a Marlin 30-30 lever gun from the 70s, but that was sold along with as 73 Fender Precision bass during a tough time over 30 years ago. (Gratefully, times have changed!) I don't believe I want to put a scope on the 357 given the inherent ballistic issues, but like having the option. So, if I were to choose a lever action, needs to be a side ejection. Why do I want it? Just want a bit more versatility and want to keep it simple and fun. Survivalist thinking is always in the background of my mind. If you have had the opportunity to compare different rifles in this caliber, would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
