I want a lever action rifle.

Recommended Posts

I hope I didn’t just mess up. I picked up my second lever action. Rossi 1892, stainless steel, 20” barrel, 44mag. Thanks Badshot57!

I only think I might have messed up in that owning one lever action was Ok. But owning two lever actions seems like too few. 

I would post photos, but apparently I have exceeded my attachment limit of 2MB (by about 28MB).

If you have 2 you might as well have 6.

Welcome to the madness. It only gets worse.

I find that 2 is ok but 3 makes a collection for anything and then it is hard to stop. I'm currently at 4 Marlin's and a Henry trying to be good.

I have just 2, my dads 30-30 Winchester and a Browning 22. I did find 2 for sale, 50 year old Savage 99s, one is in 308 and the other is in 300 Savage.

For Sale where and for how much?

I'm a Marlin lever guy but to be honest never seen a lever I didn't like. Rossi very nice guns. Here's my 44-40 and 357. And picture of some of mine on the wall.

I need to show this to the wife, she’ll think I’m okay.

Shot the Rossi today. Accurate and fun to shoot. But man it kicks more than I thought it would. My shoulder is not the happiest after 20+ rounds. The bitt is a bit sharp with the steel cap. I definitely think I need some type of a pad on the rifle butt.

Did I mention that my shoulder hurts like a MF?

Well, it does. 

But such a fun rifle to shoot. 
 

Hand loading or 44 Special are your answers. A 200 grain lead bullet atop a small load of Bullseye powder will turn that kicking mule into a docile plinker.
