    So a buddy owed me some money, he payed me in the form of a rifle. He said to pick a gun out of his collection. Problem is, his collection is not that impressive. I saw this ugly ass thing and had to get it. It's a Mosberg 464, 30-30-win lever action. It has nice fiber optic sights.

    Oh.... my......gawd......... It's an assault cowboy gun.

    I cannot believe how dangerous that lever action has become now with a telescoping stock and Vertical Grip.

    Not to mention the lethality of the rails. And the 30-30 Caliber Magazine Clip Tube scares me.

    It's worth having just to frustrate a liberal.

    Ugly as hell but still pretty neat. Always loved lever guns but never purchased one (it's on my list). Making a lever gun tactical seems silly, but I'd still own that over some other "ugly guns".

    Seen that at SHOT 2012. It was really popular, not sure if it was because of the cool factor or the OH MY GAWD what in the world is that factor.

    This ugly gun makes more sense than many tricked out ass salt rifles. Everything it wears is there for a reason. If you can really cycle it better by grabbing the vertical grip, then to me she is pretty.

    I think the vertical grip was added by the owner. Probably would make it easier to cycle though.

    I'm sure you can get a wood stock for it. To bad they didn't put a big loop on it. :D

    I think it's funny that part of what you say could be fixed with a wood saw and make the gun almost legal :)

    Imagine being in a courtroom and going through the motions of of sawing off the vertical grip - then state "There, its legal now!". Wouldn't that be fun.

    Yep - she is butt ugly but what sportsmane appreciate more than anythng is those sweet little groups.

    I don't know why but American's feel protective of what we view as traditional firearms. Example: I'm a big fan of fiber optic front sights - I have green on my HK 45s and my Ruger MK II's but they look downright funny on a SA revolver.


    Just go to Ruger's website - you can see the difference for yourself.

    As long as it works, looks can be addressed later.
