    If I used exclusively Hornaday's Lever Revolution ammunition would it be possible to make a 30-30 AR-15? If so, approximately how much would that run me?
  2. Firing Pin HELP

    Hey I'm a new user and I need some help/advice/knowledge. A few years back my father tried to restore his old model 94, 30-30, post 64 with a new stock, and let's just say he isn't mechanically inclined. It ended up not going back together correctly and in the end lost a few pins and a firing...

    Hi All-- This is my first post. I purchased a Marlin 30-30 from Cabela's about 5 years ago, and wondering if anyone has mounted a scope and is happy with the choice and size of the scope.

    Leverguns and Their Cartridges (General)
    I just got my 464 yesterday and after years of wanting a lever action and the better part of 6 months obsessing about them I finally got to get out and put some lead to a target despite the 12+" of snow I had to trudge though every 3-5 shots while trying to get it sighted in - good thing I had...

    Winchester 94 Lever Guns
    I have a buddy whos dad owns two model 94s. One is from 1965(serial 28xxxxx) and one from (I'm assuming 1994) serial 60xxxxx.

    I bought some what I thought were 170 gr. .308 lead flat nose gc bullets from a private party over the internet. The bullets look flawless and I really wanted this load for my 30-30 for some hog work. But after loading some rounds, I tried to cycle them through the action. The bullets press...

    Since the early 1970's, I've tried just about every brand and bullet weight in our 30-30 carbines. Had great luck with performance of Winchester 170 grain Power Point. But never hunted with this unique hollow tip ammo by Remington. Have you ever tried it? Impressions: accuracy, size of wound...
