    I almost forgot about it. But I just remembered that I own a Martini Greener Shotgun, the weird 12/14 gauge version made for Egypt and the colonies. It uses a lever to open it for loading.
    I need to get a lever action rifle one of these days, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Ooohrah! Man I've been waiting to find one of those to mate up with my super redhawk. Of course it can't replace my 44m Blackhawk and original 44m ruger carbine, but it would be close. Excellent lever action. - Mike

    Yes, nice looking shotgun. Lever shotguns today are a oddity that back in the 1800's was more at home with that new lever technology. Right on with a show of levered shotguns. Levered rifles always get all the attention.

    Nice shotguns. Arnold used a sawed off 1887 Winchester lever 12 gauge shotgun in the Terminator 2 movie too. I remember wanting to find one years ago for myself, but not sawed off though.
