    Who bought a new to them lever gun this year?

    was just wondering if any one bought a lever gun this past year?
    I did, well actually more than one.
    In Feb. I picked up a '99 Marlin 444 P
    In April I got a '67 Marlin SRC 30-30
    In July Bought a Marlin 1892 32 Colt made in 1899.
    In Nov I bought a '08 Marlin 1894 45 Colt LTD from a member here.
    When I went to pick it up there was a Winchester 1892 25-20 from 1913.
    So lets see what all you got this year.

    If you don't have a C&R FFL, you really need to consider getting one------it's a license to spend money, though.

    I picked up a marlin 39m, a savage 99 in 30-30, an old marlin waffle top in 35 Remington, and my most prized rifle an 1895 Winchester in 30-40 Krag. I love my lever guns

    I found an oddball, a Stevens High Power Mod. 425, in Cal. 30-30 REM. , {.30 Rem}, looks a lot like a Marlin but totally different style mechanism. Shoots very well with the same load I use in a M-8 Rem.

    Bought a new Henry Big Boy in 45 Colt. First lever gun. Been too cold to shoot. Been itching to. Got some Laser Cut boolits and Starline brass. Already crunched 100. Need to get more done.

    I just got a Henry Original steel frame in 44-40 a little before Christmas. Been looking at them online for a couple years now. I decide it was time and ordered one.

    Pictures, we need pictures. I did not even know such an animal existed, and I like my levers.

    Bought a new Marlin 1894 .44 mag in April. Took some amateur gunsmiffing to get it the way I like it, but we're friends now.

    Also bought a 24" octagonal stainless Rossi 92 in .357mag, but it's not here yet. Seller just shipped it yesterday. We agreed to wait until the Xmas shipping chaos was over. This rifle will be a twin to my 24" Rossi in .45Colt, also stainless.

    Sorry Starmac, I have not learned how to post pictures yet, maybe one of my teenage children can show me,although at their ages they are way smarter than me and consider me a lost cause with computers

    Looks like a pandemic of Leveritus has infected us. I picked up a Marlin Texan in 30-30 and a Marlin 39. These are in addition to my 1895CB, 1894 41 Mag, and another Texan that I had rebored to 375 Win.

    Bought a Rossi 92 ss in 357 cal back last summer but haven't loaded any rounds for it yet. Will be working up load and bullet type this winter to shoot hopefully when it gets a little warmer. Love the way it looks.

    I just purchased an older Interarms Rossi .38/.357, 20" model 92 SRC from a member here just a few days ago. It is a very nice gun but I have not had a chance to shoot it yet.
