    One thing the OP did not mention in regards to the winchester 94 type top action guns is mounting a scope becomes a little more difficult due to the open top/top eject action. On my sears clone of a winchester 94 I had have a side mount angle bracket that holds the scope above and slightly to the left of the top slide. This allows the chamber to be hand loaded, but it does make it slightly more difficult, and would be near impossible for a left hander since the bracket goes on the left side of the reciever. The photos in the OP however show lever actions using a peep sight like more commonly used on AR's. I don't know what would be required to mount one on a top/eject, but can see where it would be an advantage from a reload/fast fire stand point. I guess my 30-30 is more along a sniper battle rifle with my high power scope.

    I actually just picked up (yesterday) a 1959 Winchester Model 94. I am absolutely love it so far, but haven't gotten to take her out yet.

    A guy on another forum turned his 30-30 Marlin 336 into a survival rifle by adding an aftermarket stock and putting supplies in the butt stock. I'm thinking about doing the same and making it my "truck"/BOG.
