I wonder if NEF might consider more calibers in the Buffalo Classic/Target Model format?

I'd be interested in, for instance, a Target Model in 30-30 Winchester or 30-40 Krag, or a Buffalo Classic in 405 Winchester (you can load .41 cal. pistol bullets in 405 cases for mild to wild results).

How about a Squirrel Rifle in .38 Special/.357 Magnum. Something along the lines of a classic .36 cal. Tennessee Squirrel Rifle (I'm not joking here).

I'd appreciate the longer 28"-32" barrels in just about any pistol caliber - long barrel and low pressure mean low noise for small game hunting and plinking.

Also, Marlin has a new rifle in 480 Ruger/475 Linebaugh. NEF/H&R/Wesson & Harrington should too.

I could go on and on, as many others have in the past, but these four seem just too practical:
30-30 Target Model
405 Winchester Buffalo Classic
38/357 Squirrel Rifle
480 Ruger/475 Linebaugh in any barrel length, the longer the better for me.

What are ya'll thoughts on this?

I think that you have a very good idea to be looked at there. I really wouldn't mind the .38 special for a squirrel rifle either. What I would really like also would be the .25-20 winchester round. I really have a sweet tooth for this round.

It has come to my attention that Marlin has ceased any and all production on this gun :evil:

I sure would think a Target Model in 30-30 or 30-40 would sell. I would take either one or both. Both are great cast bullets cartridges.

In fact, (I would think companion heavy Target barrels, 28" in each of the Cowboy Calibers Marlin has offered would sell.

Very good wegomoe. Being single shots they could make a lot of different calibers. I would like one with a pistol grip butt stock.

Target-style wishes

I just ordered a Target and I'd like to be able to have that style barrel in a number of calibers. A 30-30 would be nice. Especially since I've got so many 30 cal. bullets on hand. I'll never shoot them all in my '06. A 32H&R mag would be fun to play with too.

I have the 38-55 Target...really like it...
I would also be a buyer for th' 30-30, and without a doubt, the.38 or .357.

I'd also like to see the 25-35. I'm thinkin' about gettin' the .45 LC bbl fer th' Target, if I can...

I have a Target Model in .38-55 which I sent the reciever back to H&R to have a .45-70 Buffalo Classic barrel fitted to it. I would really like to have another barrel chambered in .32-40. That would make a real nice trio.
