Browning BLR is the only lever action I know of and they are pretty expensive. The Remington 760 and 7600 are good guns but almost all of them on the used market are 30/06 which with lighter bullets is not that much different from a 270 so that might be an option.

Heres one:
If you like synthetic stocks they are a lot cheaper than walnut.

Winchester Model 1895 Repro was made in 270Win for a while. Never a big seller.
They can still be found for sale usually in exc to new condition for $1000+.

I don't know what your price range is, but that's another lever option in 270.

The Remington Model 760 GameMaster Pump rifle was the early version of the latest 7600pump.
Made from the early 50's to the start of the 80's.
Those were made in 270Win for the entire production time I think. Rifle as well as carbine versions.
Lots of them on used gun racks and at very affordable prices.

I am going to ask why are you looking for these instead of a bolt action? Are you lefthanded if so Savage makes excellent rifles in left handed versions that wont break the bank. I had a Model Left hand 110 in 30-06 it would shoot sub 1 inch groups at 100 yards. A year later I became blind in my left eye due to M.S. so I learned to shoot right handed.

Lever and pump rifles shine in deep brush and thick cover. Basically short range shooting. 270 is known for long range shooting.

To me a pump or lever 270 is a mismatch.

Don’t get me wrong, I love pump shotguns and I love and hunt with a lever action (Marlin 336 in 35 rem). But I also hunt in thick swamp where getting more than 50 yards is a “long shot” and getting a second shot is extremely rare.

I like the idea of the Remington 760 or 7600 in carbine version. Pretty handy

Then I too would suggest the Remington pump rifles look for older ones in pawn shops or local gun buy, sell, trade sites

Have you tried a left hand bolt action? If not try a Ruger American. Reasonable price and good reviews for accuracy. Learning to run a LH bolt left handed isn't hard. Much easier than dealing w RAH rifle left handed.

Ever thought about a single shot rifle? When I do pick up a long gun to hunt with it is usually a single shot.
