Lever Guns

I'm starting to think that I need to have a lever action in my life. Currently looking into a Marlin 1894 in .357, but I'm curious what everyone's thoughts are on lever action in general?

I don't know why but I absolutely hate them. A couple of my buddies have the .30-.30 and I cant stand the looks, or functions of the thing. Just my opinion though

To me they have a coolness factor and along with a cowboy gun will be on my list of guns to get.

I have a Marlin in 30-30. It's a fun gun to shoot.

My Ride: E30 with an S52
I have a Marlin .44 Magnum S. It's apparently some limited edition. It shoots extremely hard and is very accurate. It's also nearly 20 years old...

I have a Winchester Model 94 (.30-.30). The action on mine is a little gritty, but I love it. I would like to pick up a few other lever action guns with a butter smooth action.

Look into Marlin or Winchester lever guns for a start. You can get a cowboy gun that shoots rounds like a .44-40 or .45 Long Colt, a modern pistol like .44 mag or .357, or heavier rifle brush rounds like .45-70, .30-30, .444Marlin, .308lever, etc.

A lever is among my next to buy for sure. There is just an awesome novelty to them. I always picture arnold in T2 with that lever action shotgun and it makes me smile.

coolness factor absolutely.

So should a lever action rifle strictly be used only for plinking/Target shooting? Or does anyone use it for hunting? I'm curious. never really looked into the use of these rifles

People use lever actions extensively as brush guns for big game. .30-30 is the most common, and .45-70 for heavier game like bear.
