I've had a few leverguns through the years. Various brands, models, calibers, walnut, laminated, blued, stainless, irons, scoped, engraved, round, octagon, limited editions, etc. Got rid of 'em all. Later realized that I didn't like being without one, so knew that I had to fill that void. Without question or hesitation, I chose an 1895G in .45-70 (blued JM with walnut).
