    Lever guns making a comeback

    I probably don't need to tell you guys here, but it seems that the versatility of the lever gun is very prominant on TV.
    For example, I was watching the CBS show Vegas on TV tonight and noticed the sheriff along with his deputies were all armed with lever action rifles, ( I couldn't get a close look, but if I didn't know any better I'd think they were Marlins). Then to my surprise a commercial appeared for Silvester Stallone's new upcoming movie "Bullet to the head" and I'd be darn, in one scene he appears to be using a lever gun in a shoot out.
    If this keeps up, the ugly tactical assault rifle will be falling off the way side, and people will start snatching up lever guns...

    After semi-autos the lever is the fastest action. Its the original assault rifle

    Its always good to see others getting into Lever actions, They are just the best.... but as they start buying up all the levers it will jack the price up even further and we wont be able to afford more

    I first learned to shoot with Lever actions when I was a kid. I still own one to this day. Can't beat an old 30-30 in the deer woods!

    The Winchester 1866 Golden Boy was the first american assult rifle and the 1873 Winchester got all the glory.

    I'm glad I have all the leverguns I need.

    Except if you have a Marauder in .35 Rem you are tired of, or maybe an extra .444, or...
    Son, any day you wake up is a good day.

    Look out for the people around you. If you are American, buy American.

    Although it was the 1860 Henry, chambered in a .44 rimfire, that the confederate soldiers complained, "The Yankees load that thing on Sunday and shoot all week!" The Henry was preceded by the Volcanic Arms repeating rifle and would become the 1866 Winchester.
    You have heretofore read public sentiment in your newspapers, that live by falsehood and excitement; and the quicker you seek for truth in other quarters, the better.
