Had a Marlin 30-30 and sold it a while ago. I missed having a lever action so I scooped up a CT made Marlin 1894 Cowboy Limited in .44 Mag about a year ago. My dad ended up with it and recently I realized I needed another.
This brings us to last week. Found a Henry Big Boy in .44 Mag and had to grab it. Then today, my .357 Mag arrived and while at the shop decided I needed a .22. It never ends!
I'm a happy camper!
Nice nice nice! Now you just need to add a lever action shotgun and you'll have a complete collection. I just added one to my inventory.

Got my Skinner Peep dove tail sights for my Henrys last night. Since i'm not one to wait, I had to put them on right away.
I used a .22 casing over my metal punch so I didn't damage the sights. Some brass marks, but no biggie! As long as they work I don't care.
Peep vs. Buckhorn
Complete and ready to be sighted in!
I also picked up two Skinner Two-gun cases. I was running out of cases to bring the guns to the range and figured these were perfect and they would take up less space. They don't have as much padding as my normal single gun zip-up case I use, but they work and I really like them. Seem very sturdy. One is 42" and the other is 44". The one shown is the 44". I've since switched and put the Henry's in the 42".
What do I shoot with? Canon gear of course
Yeah I like lever actions as well. I have a 70's Marlin 30-30 and a 1941 Winchester 30WCF

Nice group of guns you have. I have a Marlin 35 that I bought back in 1970 and it still looks new. I have taken hogs and deer with it. It remains in the top part of my favorite all time gun list.
