Have a Winchester 9422(1977-78 vintage) but thinking of a center-fire rifle of this type. It will be a something to go in my car trunk or behind the seat of my pick-up. Consider it the civilian equivalent of a "patrol rifle"(at least the non-AR type).
* 30-30 or a pistol round? (handgun-wise my main EDC is either a 9mm or 45 ACP)
* Marlin,Winchester or Mossberg?
* New or used? Don't want to spend a fortune, but new levers are NOT crazy like AR's(even before the recent craziness)
* Any particular advice on iron-sights...stock or after-market?
* Must have accessories?
