Recently fell in love with my grandpas old Winchester 3030 model 94 and am looking to pick up something similar for myself. I don't neccesarily care if it's the same caliber/gun, but what I loved about it is what I'm looking for, and that's simple... Lever action. What I'm most interested in is a better understanding of the differences between alike rifles. - 308 (seems most popular, but least likely to have lever action) - 3030 (makers I've found being Winchester, Marlin, and Mossberg) - 243 (lower cal but just as much bang with more range) Does this sum it up? Any others you guys can think of and recommend. The more the explanation the better, as I want to know not just what to look for, but also why. Thanks all. This place really is a treasure for firearm info.
