Who else is into levers?
I can't help it. I love lever action rifles. If you haven't shot a .308 marlin express or for that matter any of the leverevolution ammo through your lever guns you have to get some. the old model 94 loves it.

I went into a local shop last week to order a Saiga .308, and left the store with the Marlin .308MXLR, a 400 yard stainless/laminate lever gun. I already had 2 other .308's and still want a Saiga, but I have no regrets, I'm a sucker when it comes to both old and new lever guns.

Anyone else have this affliction?

Ok, your avatar is a pic of the most "tacticool" lever gun I have ever

I have always been a fan of the model 94. I would like to own a nice one someday. They make for good subsistance rifles.

Right now I only have a Marlin 1895 SS 45-70. I used to have an 1895 Ltd. II in 45-70 and an 1894 in .357. I miss that .357 lever a bunch. If I can find one for a decent price when I've got the cash, I'm gonna' snap it up. :D

I grew up using my dad's .30-30 Winchester to hunt with. It's a rock solid rifle that carried plenty of ammo in the tube.

The Model 94 30-30 Win. probably killed more whitetails than any other firearm produced, although, it is probably the most dangerous long gun made. I was happy when Marlin introduced the cross-block safeties on their firearms. This made the lever more user friendly.

Unfortunately, I only have my Henry lever at the moment. I've seen a vintage Marlin a few times at various gun shows, but because it's the same one, I guess there's something wrong with it or maybe too pricey.

I'm considering a Puma in .357 as my next purchase.
