Default Any gun companies in America still make 12 or 20 Gauge Lever-Action Shotguns?

The other day I fired for the first time an old model Winchester 1887 and it was very smooth... I loved it. Does anyone in here appreciate this style of long gun still?

Too bad there is no gun company in America that still make lever-action shotguns.

There is a reason they don't make them anymore. They weren't too reliable, and very susceptible to wear. Also, try wingshooting and working the lever. Much better suited to Hollywood stunts and blanks, just like pistol grip only short pumps blazed away with by 107 pound chicks.

Iíll have to disagree with you on this Virginian. I love my 1887 and found it to be very reliable and accurate. Would I use it for bird hunting, sure but then I donít put up 4 or 5 rounds and hope a bird flys through the ďflackĒ. I tend to aim and shoot and I usually hit the bird Iím aiming at so I donít really need to worry about aiming and levering at the same time. But on that note I do use mine in cowboy action shooting and donít have a problem shooting double taps with her. Now to be fair I have sent mine out for a action job to smooth it out and put a two round block in for rapid reloading but thatís for playing the CAS game. As she was she was very accurate and fun as hell to shoot.

I haven't seen the movie in so long,but I do recall seeing him put a bunch of holes in the other terminator with something like that.I wouldn't want one,I can already feel my fingers pinching in that lever handle trying to shoot fast,but to each his own,if someone likes them that's cool.

Ummmm- I'll take NO for $500...........

Last I recall was either the Winchester or Marlins that were made in .410. To buy one of those now requires all your spare cash, a pint of blood, and your firstborn child.

Ooooo..... nice Buffalo Arms, thanks for that link! I never even heard of this company.

Going with what Dzscubie said, I was putting slugs through it and the target from quite a bit of distance and it just felt smooth when I shot it.

Sorry Jon- Buffalo is a stocking dealer, not a manufacturer.
