    Correct. There was an episode that showed the device that pushed the trigger when the lever closed. It was when some outlaw took his rifle and was surprised to have it go off when he closed the lever.

    Of course, they never explained how sometimes Chuck would chamber a round and it would not fire (when he chambered it for affect, or when he did precision sighted shooting), but subsequent rounds would fire when he closed the lever.

    It's not like their guns are bad... I'd have bought a 1300 Defender if I'd not unexpectedly inherited a Mossberg Security. I actually think in a lever gun their long action is probably better for .30-30 or anything dimensionally similar, and it is a touch smoother than the Marlin out of the box.

    I know a lot of people get Winchesters because they'll make a straight stock configuration in a certain caliber when Marlin won't.

    And they've tried to innovate somewhat with the scout model, but a quick aftermarket mount turns almost any levergun into a scout gun. To be honest I plan to get ghost rings sights for mine sometime and skip any sort of optic.

    If they made a side ejecting straight stock 94 in .30-30 and pistol calibers that came from the factory with either a peep sight or a ghost ring sight and an option for a scope of either configuration I think that would sell, but not enough to save the company.

    Tripod doesn't want you to host a picture with them and link it on another site. You have to cut the link and paste it in a browser for it to work most of the time. Unless you pay them for that ability. It's a "premium" service, ya know....
