I like my old 30-30 Winchester. Did Winchester ever put out a stainless version of the lever action? I know marlin did.
One of the great advantages of the lever gun is that it does not look like an "eeeevil black assault rifle." Never mind the fact that lever guns were the first repeaters, designed from the outset as fighting guns.
Today, most folks who will sit on your jury think of a lever gun as a hunting arm, a collector item, or a relic from the past. It's much more "PC" than a modern military-style semi-auto...despite the fact that, run properly, it will keep up with any of those more modern rifles for the first half-dozen shots or so (and I doubt you'll ever need to shoot more than that in a single engagement as a civilian).
This "tactical" lever gun is a bad, bad idea. Leave the lever gun in wood...and in "stealth" mode.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
Looks like the good old lever action has been assimilated by the Borg.

Are you tired of the clean lines of your classic 30-30 levergun? Do you look with envy at the AR-15 tactical rifle crowd and wish that you too could hang 12 pounds of accessories on a 7 pound rifle? Mossberg has just the thing for you...
Don't mind me, I'll be hanging out at the new Butt Ugly Tactical 30-30 Forum. ;-)
If I've offended anyone after their new rifle purchase I would like to take the time to say, "Yeah that's nice. It's really different. As long as you like it. That's all that counts."
I will stick with my 1970 Winchester 30-30.
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -
Surely that's an early April Fool's joke!
Ooops! Just looked at the Mossberg site, and I guess it's not!
It will take a couple days to get that image out of my mind. Is nothing sacred ??
I am quite happy with the look of my box stock Marlin 336.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

My Marlin 336SS (30-30) is perfect for me just the way it is...

I'm goin' with my 1978 Marlin 336c.
The tac rail(essentially the forearm) on it doesn't go far enough to feasibly put anything of use on it, from the pic, it doesn't look as though the tac rail has the ability to mount anything on top even.
The rear grip looks almost painful, its a top eject(instead of a side, like the Marlin).
Gonna crash & burn.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
