My grandpa has loaned me his Winchester Model 88 for deer hunting next week. I took it out to the range yesterday to check its zero and see if it liked the ammo I planned on using. I ended up blowing all 60 rounds of 308 I brought with me just because this rifle is accurate and really freaking fun to shoot. For anyone that is unfamiliar with the rifle, it is a detachable magazine fed lever-bolt hybrid action rifle where the lever operates a three-lug rotating bolt.
After doing some research on the rifle, I found out that the one in my possession was made in the mid 60s, and the rifle was discontinued in the early 70s.
Are there any rifles like this that are currently in production? I really like the idea of a magazine fed lever gun that can use pointed bullets, but I'll have to give this rifle back in a few weeks.
