    ATCDoktor replied to a thread Suppressed lever guns in Leverguns
    I have a few leverguns that are threaded for suppressor use. The first is a Marlin M1895 in 45/70: A 400 grain bullet at 1000 FPS is quite effective at short range and the sound of that big slug slamming home has to be heard to be...

    Thanks. I picked it up at a local gun show a year or so ago. The guy I bought it from had a whole “western” memorabilia display/motif going on with his display/table set up that was quite a draw at the show. The rifle was part of the...

    The pics of my rifles “clean up” a lot of the flaws that a extremely obvious when they are viewed in person. That Savage Model 99 I shared pics of is very rough but the pics make it look like it’s not so bad.

    I have several “beater” leverguns (I have a soft spot for haggard levers) and my recent addition is this sad Savage Model 99 chambered in 243 Winchester (this was an actual “truck” gun that a local ranch family traded in/sold to my LGS). This is...

    I will certainly give this a try. I ordered a few bullets from tenmile (Jack Harrison) off gun-broker and I’ll try a 32 acp seat die. It for sure will beat paying for custom made dies.

    These old Marlin 1891’s and 92’s are (IMHO) the perfect sized small game levergun. The problem with them is that the action is fairly weak and on these models there’s nothing holding the bolt closed but the lever (ain’t no locking lugs on these...

    I had been looking for one of these for the last couple of years and although there are plenty of them on the internet for sale (Guns International and Gunbroker) I could never find one at a price I could wanted to pay. Well, while staggering...
