lever action rifle

  1. Unique Winchester Model 52 Lever Action ?

    I have a rifle "Model 52 Winchester .22LR" but it is has a lever action, not bolt action, which is what I find in reference to Model 52 anywhere online. Really odd duck as far as I can tell. Perhaps special order? It is an heirloom but no one left to ask. It has a fancy checkerboard design on...
  2. .375

    Winchester 94 Lever Guns
    I recently got a Winchester model 94 chambered in .375 Winchester as you may know ammo is not easy to come by so I was woundering what all is involved in making my .375 into a 30-30
  3. Win 94 - Totally Clueless

    Winchester 94 Lever Guns
    New member from Iowa here with some questions about a '94 that I just inherited. This sat in my Father-in-law's home for a number of years but I never got around to asking any questions about it. Obviously it's seen some better days and it looks like someone has tried to "pretty it up", but not...
  4. Remington 30-30 ammo : 170 grain hollow tip

    Leverguns and Their Cartridges (General)
    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...
  5. Marlin 30 AS - conversion from 30-30 to 307 win?

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    Hi all, I am thinking about having my 30AS re-chambered for the 307 win cartridge and was wondering if the system of the 30AS can handle the significantly higher preassure of the 307 win, or if I should go for softer loads with the old lady?! Thanks, thecyclone
  6. 35 remington ammo

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    So I'm considering purchasing a 336 in either 30-30 or 35 Remington. I'm not an avid big game hunter or anything but I would like to have a medium power rifle for self defense purposes to go along with my Glock 23. I know 30-30 ammo is EVERYWHERE, but my question is whether or not 35 Remington...
  7. 336 wont cycle reloads

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    Bought a new 336 about a month ago, didn't have dies, etc yet so bought some factory Win ammo. Hun shot and cycled fine. Full length sized and trimmed the fired brass. Seated two bullets in empty brass, no primers or powder. The first chambered fine, the second didn't slide back...
  8. Marlin 336: what's a realistic used price?

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    I came across several used Marlin 336 lever guns today and saw that they varied in price ranging from $300-$400, however, since I haven't looked at used Marlins i'm not sure if it's considered fair. I know pricing is dependent on many factors such as condition, model, etc., but is there a...
  9. Jamming .35 rem 336

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    Hi, I have just bought a second hand .35 rem 336 which jams with the lever full open. I have pulled it to bits and studied it. It looks like the carrier is too long so when a round is on the carrier the next one sticks out of the mag by about 0.070" and locks the carrier down. I wonder if...
  10. Marlin 336 30-30 trigger question

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    I just bought a used Marlin 336 today and am curious about it's trigger. I've been told "it's just the nature of the beast" but just want to get a little more insight, especially since this forum has a section dedicated to lever guns. The trigger has a little play in it with the action open...
