I think for my next lever gun, I may get the 96/44.... but I still got a hankerin for another Marlin 336, in .35 Remington. I already got a Glenfield 30A, in 30-30 and my son has his camo'd 336, 30-30 too... but there is just something about that .35 Rem I like.

Then there is the 45-70, 45-90 and .405 Win ah...... I better stop there seems to be no cure for "Levergunitus" :D

KevinCasey....me, too, in .308---missed many chances and now don't see 'em anymore...they were slick...I'd like the 96/44 but for the low capacity---last one of those I saw was $500 even....looks like a Henry .44 or Marlin .35----maybe this summer.....

As much as I'd love to get another Ruger, the lever gun I plan to pick up is a marlin 1895 in .45-70 govt. At the ranges you see on game in the woods of PA the .45-70 is plenty of cartridge for anything you come across. I also like the novelty of using a tang sight to lob an accurate shot out to 500 yards with such a low velocity cartridge.

When I was in high school an older neighbor (about 45) loaned me his Browning autoloader in 35 Remington. It was a sweet shooting cartridge. I don't remember the model but the barrel recoiled with the bolt for a short distance.

I wonder if you can rechamber a .357 Mag lever gun to 35 Rem. I think the cartridge length would make it a hard conversion.

No but I sure wish they did. One in .45 Colt, .32-20, and .454 Casull while they're at it. .480 Ruger, too...!
