    Being this is the Lever Gun forum, my dream lever gun would be one of the deluxe models of a Savage M 425 , 435 , 440 Hi Power in 30-30 or 35 Rem. Or a early Win. 1873 in 22 rf.

    A Savage 99 in 30-30. I have been to hundreds of gun shows here in New England and have never seen one.

    A Winchester/Miroku 1895 in 405 Win.
    I had an opportunity to buy an original with the "Climbin' Lyman", at a local auction 10 years back, but couldn't cover the tariff...

    Interesting choices. I too would love a big bore 1895, hopefully a .405. The only ones I see are .303 and .30-40. very common around here.

    If money was no object, a Marlin 32H&R Mag, or a good to excellent condition Marlin 94 or Win 92 in 32/20. Also would love a Marlin 1893 in 30wcf.

    Not Leverguns but, S&W model 10 in 32 S&W Long (only ever seen one, in a book) or a S&W K-32 or S&W model 16 in 32 Mag.

    Not a lever gun, butttttt, an 8” Colt Python in .357 Magnum for less than $1800+!!!!!!! But that’s just me.

    A Savage 99T in .22 High Power, being sold by the heir to an old time collector, who doesn't have a clue as to its value.

    Failing that, a pristine Savage M1899 Montreal Home Guard rifle on a table presided over by a guy who collects Winchesters and hasn't a clue that the gun is worth $8000 not the $800 he has on it.

    Savage 99 T's are pretty rare but to me very unattractive . If you seen a gun that was worth 10 times what the seller was asking for it wouldn't you beg , borrow , or steal the $ 800 to buy it ? Just sayin ? Or is this dreaming ?

    An $800 price tag would have me scrambling for my wallet! The thread title though, is "gun show dream gun".

    Had two 1895’s in 405 WCF. First was a solid frame shotgun butt with a climbing Lyman. Hunted Moose with it several times, never connected. At the time Barnes originals were the only jacketed bullets available. Rifle had a propensity for stringing vertical. 3”-4” at 100 yards. Second 1895 was a takedown, shotgun butt that also had a climbing Lyman. Bought it from an older man that had spent years in the Alaska Bush with it. He worked for Alascom and spent years working up and down the Alaska Peninsula installing Micro Wave Repeater Stations. While working on these sites he carried this takedown rifle in a well built but compact plywood box. Any Brown Bear that ventured to close was dispatched with this rifle. Both are long gone. Wish I still had one.

    And I'll add to the dream by mentioning a Genuine Mauser Sporter in K size in 250-3000; and a Lone Star rolling block sporter weight .30US.

    A Ruger #1 in .270 or a fine JP Sauer in 8mm. I'm from the walnut & steel generation.

    As if it would ever happen but, this is a "dream", right?

    A vierling in 16 X 16 over 8 X 57R under 5.6 X 35R vierling. 5K would be a steal if it's in any condition at all.

    I’ve got more guns that I can shoot, but if I found a good Stevens 425 High Power in .25 Remington, at a used-gun price, I’d have to have it.
