Ahhh... a nice rewarding rifle thread. Love lever guns.

And, here come the same ol' tired photos of the ones around here. Ought to do some updates.

A "second year production" Winchester Model 1886 .45-90 from 1887


May have been the weekend a turkey was taken with the .45-90. An old scanned photo.


A Winchester Model 1892 .32-20 saddle ring carbine from 1896


A Winchester Model 94 .32 Winchester Special carbine from 1941


A Winchester Model 1895 .405 WCF from 1904

The muzzle end of the .405


A Savage Model 99 .300 Savage from the mid-1950s


A really grand Winchester Model 1873 .38-40 with high-grade wood and a Lyman receiver sight that was traded away years ago with much later morning and kicking myself which continues to present. An old scanned photo out on our home place of some guy with black hair and all of it present on his head who seems to be carrying less lard. The revolver in the flap holster is a Uberti 7 1/2-inch .38-40 clone of a Colt SAA.


A more recent photo of the fellow seen above, exercising a Marlin Model 95 .45-70 lever action on targets on the side of the same hill seen in the photo above.


Deer hunting on the old home place...Whoops, wrong photo!


Old scanned photo of deer hunting with the Savage 99. The 5-month old in the photo will be 31 the end of May.

My most prized working Winchester. It had a hard life, but I expect it fed many and protected a few.

1884 Winchester Model 1873 22 Short, first year production for Winchester's 22 and the first US built 22 repeating rifle. This serial was early production for the 22 caliber in 1884, so it is literally one of the first 22 repeating rifles built in the US.

Still works fine with all the original parts.

I think you might mean the Winchester 1873. The Model 1883 was a Hotchkiss model bolt action in 45/70.

Lever gun pic thread?

Here is my one and only. I know she isn't as traditional as some since because of it being stainless.

I bought this about 12 years ago when I was planning a hunting trip to Ky with my kid brother. Unfortunately he got into some trouble and the trip never happened. We cant hunt with rifles here in IL so its only punched holes in paper so far. But one day will take it out of state with my son for a trip.

One day I would love to get a Marlin 1895 45/70 to go with this one.

My current lever-action rifle is a Winchester 1894 Teddy Roosevelt Commemorative .30-30 Winchester with a 26" barrel made in 1969. It was new in the box when I bought it recently. It has been fired many times now. I started deer hunting with a borrowed Winchester 94 .30-30 back in the 1950s. I have bought and sold several lever-action rifles over the years.
