We got two lever guns here a Marlin 336CC, 30-30 and a Glenfield 30A, 30-30..... Got an interest in a few more in both 1886 Winchester's in 45-70 & 45-90, and Marlin 1895 & the Cowboy model and a couple 1876 Model Chaparral's in 45-60 & 45-75....



Question: Can a man ever own too many lever guns?

I got nothin' but I HAD a 336C in 30-30, 1894 in .44, one in .357, and a 336 in .35 Rem-and a Browning in .398--and a Marlin Mountie....and two Daisys...and I wish I had 'em all back-today, I'd buy an 1894 in .44,one in .357, and a Mountie (if I could find a good one)--there's something about a levergun that means business-best for rural LEO in my opinion...they look good, feel good, and shoot good...love that tubular feed-I'd like Rugers better if they'd come up with a 20-shot clip-I hate low-capacity clips in rifles...never liked the lightness of the 94, though it's taken more deer than any rifle in America as of the 70's-prefer side ejection, too....the West was won with a levergun---

I have two Winchester 30-30 94's. One is in good shape and I have a sling on it and use sometime for hunting, the other is good but rough and I use it for my truck gun.

I have a pre-'64 30-30 Winchester '94 that is like new and is a nice collectible. I also have a NIB Winchester 9422 XTR, also very collectible. I still have a Marlin 39A 22 that I bought new back in the mid-70s. It is an absolute tack driver. I'm looking for a companion for it (Marlin 336).

I think lever guns are a woderful piece of American history and they look so nice next to a Ruger SA revolver!

My country Uncle had a Marlin 39A-I think he slept with it-ALWAYS had it with him-and shot short HP's-I think 25 of them at a loading-too long for my taste-I got a Mountie and like an idiot let it go a year or two later-those guns were made well!!

Got a Marlin/Glenfield 30-30, and an older 94 Win in .32 SPL. Wife's got a Marlin 1894 in .357 that she carries around the piney woods sometimes...

Before I get them BIG bores, I really would like to get my Marlin 336SC, .35 Remington back. I also have a hankerin for two old Winchester Rifles that are pre-64 in .32 Win and .30 WCF... both with octogan 26" barrels.

My wife just rolls her eyes.....

Dwayne--have you fed much .44 Spl through your 9/44? I want a .44 rifle-but I'll shoot 95% .44 Spl.---haven't found anyone who knows how it feeds-or I haven't asked the right person yet!
