    My Levtac was NIB for 750.00 out the door at a local show. The rest of the stuff was as follows….

    Laser designator 150.00 from a gunshow.
    The bipod (highly recommend for these rifles) 29.00 eBay.
    Grip pads were 8-9.00 per set of 18 pads from eBay.
    Pic-Rail segments were from eBay as well.
    The dot scope was from my junk drawer full of junk that seems to breed more junk.

    The Levtac rifle matches my character perfectly……

    I’m a very nice guy and not to bad in person if you have really low standards.

    I got the same reactions when I posted photos of my Marlin 1894 Dark in 357.

    But I like it a lot. It is accurate and dependable.

    And used ones are going for big money.

    Steve,
    I Love those Marlins, they are by far my favorite rifle. II have always been a blued wood kind of guy. When this rifle was pointed out I hardly even looked at it for the first two or three weeks it was on the wall. Just plain not interested, that's not me and not my style. I am more of a traditionalist than that.

    Then I made the mistake (not) of just picking it up. That changed everything. That thing just fits perfect and shoots great. Sure changed my mind about owning it.
    Aim Small, Miss Small.

    Nice gun, but for that kind of money I would go with a Henry.

    I’m not aware of a Henry with a threaded barrel in the 750.00 price range. Unless I’m looking in the wrong places, the Levtac is the cheapest deal for threaded tactical “exercise rifles”.

    I have Marlins (Several) Winchesters and Henry levers. Henry is probably my least favorite out of all of them. Just me, I am not a big fan of Henry.

    You're right, that thing is ugly. Do your other firearms keep scrunching away from it? Mine would

    Could you imagine John Wayne swinging that thing. I would never knock a mans choice of firearm but that thing just don't ring my bell. I saw them advertised here in Australia as well and will no doubt be popular with our black rifle wanna be crowd. Regards Stephen

    Guy's,
    I know I feel you. Never thought that I would ever own one. ever. But it is a thing of beauty to shoot. I believe that Boyd stocks in the USA sells after market stocks that will fit this, but I am not interested. Right now I have thirteen lever action rifles, 12 of them are all the classic, I probably enjoy shooting this one even more than the classics right now. It really is that light and comfortable to shoot.

    That's true. I don't need the threaded barrel but some folks certainly would.
