    Here you go
    Well ****, that's only a 20" barrel.
    It's the one I got, and mine killed 2 doe pretty darned dead with the measly 20" barrel...

    Bought a used Taylor/Colt/Burgess carbine in 45 colt for a deep discount. Could not pass it up. I can hit steel at 200 yards with a full load but mostly it’s used for cowboy action.

    I purchased two Winchester 94s, one in 32 special and another in 30-30. Both are pre 64. I also bought a Marlin 336 waffletop from 1951. The Marlin receiver is undrilled which is a bonus. All three are wearing receiver sights. I was like a drunk on a bender, this was all done in a 30 day period. I have only shot them at my indoor range. I cannot wait to get them to the club to shoot them at farther distances.

    Bought my first lever gun in December from Buds. I've always wanted one, so I figured I'd get that "**** Yankee rifle you load on Sunday and shoot all week." It's the Henry Original in .45 Colt. Shoots great, and is really nice to look at too! Ed

    From an estate I found a Winchester 94AE in 45 Colt caliber. Very clean, shows little use. My search for details shows a 36" rate of twist for the rifling, will make some different loads with 220-250 weight boolits and let the rifle tell me what it likes best.

    Picked up an Uberti Silver Boy .22lr when I saw Bud's Gun Shop had them on sale for $319. Couldn't pass up that deal!

    I picked up this early 1990's Winchester 94 Ranger in Very Good to Excellent condition. Bought it through GunsAmerica from a dealer in Massachusetts. Previous owner apparently took very good care of it. It's an Angle Eject, has a rebounding hammer, but does not have the cross-bolt safety button.

    In the 2nd pic, it's the one on the left. On the right is my Rossi 92 in .45 Colt, bought in 2013.

    My latest lever gun didn't get to me until 2018; just picked up a 1971 Marlin 1994 SRC in .44 mag. Already put a Williams Foolproof on it but haven't shot it yet.

    Most folks see a firearm as rifle, pistol, shotgun, ect.... I see a canvas.

    Got my first lever action last year, a family piece I bought off my older brother. It's a 1893 Marlin Deluxe breakdown model 30-30 built in 1897 and came with a carrying case that looks as old as the rifle is.Click image for larger version.

    Nice! My Marlin 1894 is about the same vintage in 32WCF, just finished repairing the extractor and we'll be headed back to the range soon. Your 93 looks to be in better condition than my 94, should be safe to shoot after your 'smith looks it over.

    The first gun of 2018 followed me home today. It's a new Marlin 336W in .30/30. Hopefully before the year is out, I'll have a couple of inches taken off the barrel and I'll have JES rebrore it to .38/55.

    It's a new production Remlin, but it seems to be put together much better than examples they were turning out a year or two ago.

    Wow! January is slipping away and a levergun hasn't followed me home yet! I'm working on a Winchester 1885 (87) but it's a single shot lever action and likely won't be here for at least another week. There's also a 71 I probably ought to buy but.....

    We had a 94 ae come in, almost mint, and I wanted another shooter to go with my old 336 so i bought it, $400. Now for an aperture rear sight.
