The only one I have a photo of right now is my Marlin Golden 39A, Manufactured in 1981.

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

I also have my brother's old Winchester 9422M, but no photos, as stated, and it's none too pretty any way; my brother left it sitting for several weeks in front of his swamp cooler when he was living in Guymon, OK, and rusted it up something fierce. He then re-blued it with cold blue. About the best I can say for it is it still shoots great...

Here's my .300 Savage Model 99-D takedown version. I used to have the canvas TD carrying case, but lost it through many moves. My father gave this to me around 1970.

I certainly do enjoy my leverguns. These are Win. M92 44/40; middle is another M92 44/40; bottom is a M92 25/20. It’s a great turkey gun!



Below, from the top, are a Win 1894 saddle ring carbine made in 1908; a Marlin Golden 39A; a M1886 Win in .45/70; two 1940’s vintage M94 carbines in 30/30; a pre-war Win M64 in 30/30; and a Marlin 39A Mountie.

I have many but this is my favorite. A 1950 Model 94 with one of the older original Marbles Tang sights. It looks great at 68 years of age, shoots great, and is wonderfully balanced.

Only one right now, a Henry classic. I'd like to get a Henry GB Eagle Scout edition and a Winchester 1894 saddle ring in .32w.s., my father hunted with one as a kid and someone else got it when my grandfather passed.

I've got a couple of LA rifles in the safe. The Henry golden boy is a 22 mag. The 1894 Marlin was made about 1898. It's chambered in 32-20.
The butt stock was broken and repaired many years ago. I thought about replacing it but I decided to leave it alone. I kinda like how it looks.

My dad won this one playing poker one night before I was on this earth. He said it was pretty beat up,so he took it to one of my uncles who worked for a plating company. They had planned to chrome all but the barrel, but the receiver wouldn't take any color other than this. My dad liked it so he kept it that way.Maybe not an original but i like the way it looks and always smile at the story.

I have a couple more, but these are my favorites: a Win. Model 94, and a Browning BL22. These are interesting in the fact that the Winchester was designed by John Browning but doesn't carry his name, and the BL22 has his name but wasn't designed by him.

I read where John Taffin said that if he were limited to one center fire weapon, it would be a lever rifle in .357 Magnum-for all of the reasons we already know.

Well, I just happen to have one of those, although I don't seem to have a picture of the whole gun handy. My Rossi "Puma", a clone of the Winchester 92 in .357 Magnum, made before the lawyer mandated safety was added to the top of the receiver. These early versions were very close to the original Browning design. Sure a nice companion to a .357 sidearm. Great for woods walking. Light and accurate. Adequate for most critters here in the east.



Best Regarsa, Les

Lever-actions on hand here, top to bottom. Winchesters: Model 1873 .38-40 from 1900, Model 1886 .45-90 from 1887, Model 1892 .32-20 from 1896, Model 94 .32 Winchester Special from 1941, Model 1895 .405 WCF from 1904 and a Savage Model 99 .300 Savage from the mid-1950s.



They all receive "exercise." A few examples.

I don't do pictures, sorry.

Biggest to smallest:
Browning Model 1886 45-70 ca. 1986 26" Octagon barrel
Marlin 1895 Guide Gun 45-70, early enough to have factory porting.
Marlin 1894 45 Colt CB ca.2000
Rossi Model 92 45 Colt carbine pre-lock
Navy Arms Model 92 45 Colt rifle, Very Heavy! Octagon 24" barrel
Ubirti 1873 Rifle in 44 Special
Rossi Model 92 357 carbine pre -lock (SS)
Marlin 1894 32-20 carbine ca. 1982


If you have any of the JM Marlins with the push button safety, You can remove the butt stock, there is a small hex set screw left of the tang. If you run this in until it stops ,it will fix the lock in that position (safe or fire), This keeps someone from putting your gun on safe without you knowing! (That's a dirty trick at Cowboy matches) The half cock hammer works on all JM Marlins, with or without the button (The way God meant them too!)

I like 357s but to be practical in a lever gun, if you are a hunter
the old 30/30 is capable of doing just about everything in North
America. If you don't hunt I guess it makes little difference.

I only have 2 lever action rifles - a Marlin 1894 in .357 Magnum and a Savage 99C in .308 Winchester - pictured below. The Savage will print cloverleaf, 3-shot groups from the bench at 100 yards.

Regards,

Dave

This is my first lever rifle, pre-USRAC .30-30. I shot two deer with it in the space of probably 15 seconds. Long story. The Williams peep sight that I added decades ago made it easy.



It is one of three that I still have but no pix of the other two. One is a Navy Arms/Rossi Model 92 with an octagon barrel in .45 Colt - my cowboy action main match rifle. I wish I had a picture for you; it's lovely. I shot a small deer with it once, too.

The other one that I still have is a Winchester Big Bore Model 94 in .375 Winchester. That gun is gorgeous.

The guns that I sold or traded away were:

Rossi Model 92 in .44-40
Winchester Model 94 Legendary Frontiersman in .38-55
Winchester Model 94 NRA Musket in .30-30
Winchester Model 94 Trapper in .30-30 - vintage but not really old - pre-USRAC
Winchester Model 94 in .30-30 - vintage, very basic rifle, but not really old - pre-USRAC

ALL COOL!!!!

Back when I was routinely writing articles for the SASS Cowboy Chronicle I got to test a number of "cowboy"/"western" guns and one was a Uberti 1876 Centennial Rifle in .50-95. Memory says that was it, anyway. I returned it to Uberti after the testing but I can tell you it was a VERY fun rifle to shoot. Recoil was kind of a "push" and not at all harsh.

I have only two lever action rifles, a Marlin .22 LR 39-A Mounty, and a .45LC Winchester Mod. 94 AE Trapper. The Marlin .22, is extensively modified, and the Winchester .45 Colt, is box stock.

The reasons Taffin liked a 357 lever gun as an only pick was that you could carry a companion hand gun in the same caliber, no magazines, 10 rounds, and recoil is friendly to all; women folks, youngun's , and all, and it is light weight and easy to teach proper use to almost anyone. Yep, I agree.

Have several. One is a Marlin 39a I bought from my uncle in 1961 with money Imade selling boiled peanuts. I was 12 years old that summer. Have another 39a Mountie I had hard chromed because the finish was gone. Have a Winchester 9422 Magnum. Have a couple of Rossi 92s, one .357, the other a stainless .45 Colt. Both “Trapper” length. I shoot the .45 Colt more than the others now. Very pleasant with 9ish grain Unique, 250 grain lead bullets.

Here’s the .45 Colt.

No pictures. I have two lever guns. A 1984 vintage Winchester 9422XTR and 2005 Rossi 92 in 38/357. The Winchester has a no name scope that's adequate and the Rossi has an upgraded open sight.

What are all these "off brands" being posted? Granted the Daisy posted above is a genuine "first lever" for most all of us, I've always understood that there is only 1 "real", lever rifle and that one and only has to be the Winchester Model 94 in 30-30 Win

Beautiful blued steel and walnut, best whitetail brush gun ever to hit the Pennsylvania woods, iron sights (the way rifles were intended)

Was trying to find a way to get Les B multiple likes on his 94 post, then he posts a Rossi in 357 no less....pure heresy for sure.

OK...OK... By now you have all got your hands on the SAM release and have me locked in so I'm going to release the chaff and hope I don't get flamed too bad!

Terrific post....ALL of them pure eye candy. Good show!

I have a pair of .357 magnum lever guns that I'm fond of; EMF 1892 saddle-ring carbine with 20 inch barrel and a Winchester model 94AE with 16 inch barrel. I've taken whitetail deer with both of these.




I really like short barreled lever guns. My newest addition is a new Marlin 336Y in .30-30 Winchester with 16 1/4 inch barrel. I installed a safety delete kit and a factory large loop.

I'm fan of the levers as well. My affection started with the Marlin 39A (believe it's from 81), then a Marlin Article II Mountie (close to new in box,unfired I believe), and then the Marlin 1894 CSS in .357. My last lever was an Ithaca model 49, which some may laugh at but it is a great little single shot lever that is accurate and fun as can be!

Love plinking with my .357 paper punch. It's a 3 year old Rossi 92 in stainless, with a 24" octagon barrel. Takes my favorite round to a whole new level of energy.
