  1. the Lone Airgunner EP137 Winchester 1894 butt plate

    I found a NOS Winchester/Daisy 1894 saddle gun on the auctions and won it. it has wood stocks, unlike the Daisy versions. It struck me as very odd that a Winchester lever gun would come sans butt plate? I bought an old Remington butt plate that wouldn't fit the Crosman 160 Pellgun I was...
  2. Ejection Issues, need help or guiding.

    I have recently been given a post '64 Top eject 30-30 by my grandfather and all works well except the spent casing will extract from the seating but will not eject out of the block unless the lever is slammed hard and i mean much harder than John Wayne ever has. My grandpa and i are working on...

    So I was out shootin' My Henry BB with the large loop and decided I really do NOT like that lever. I hate wearing gloves, so it was useless. I decided to buy one from Henry's site. Well, they dont have one for sale on the site. I sent them an email, explaining my issue. They promptly replied...

  5. Ideas for Lever Action Wildcats

    Wildcat Cartridges
    Lately I've been kicking around some ideas for a pair of wildcats for Marlin Lever Action rifles quite a bit. The idea is to use the .338 Marlin Express as a the basis for a larger cartridge that just surpasses the .348 Winchester and a smaller cartridge that's more focused on the kind of deer...
  6. 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...

  8. Henry Color Case Hardening

    General Discussion
    I am currently looking at the Henry Color Case Hardened 45-70. I have been wondering if the case hardening is real or just a dye/fake. I also have been wondering if there is a coating or finish I could apply or have applied to the gun that would protect against rust and still keep the look of...
  9. Winchester 1894 Saddle Ring Carbine: Belgian Congo?

    Winchester 94 Lever Guns
    Hi everyone. First time poster, here. So a while back I purchased a 1894 SRC in 30 WCF. at a gun show in Ontario, Canada. I thought it was a bit peculiar because it has side mounted sling attachments (left side) that looked like they could be original to the gun because of the condition but I...
  10. 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...

    Winchester 94 Lever Guns

  13. Win Model 250, bolt assembly

    Win Model 250, lever action 22, bolt assembly. Where do the two very small ball bearings (plungers) go in the bolt? I had my gun worked on several years ago and finally got around to firing it. It misfired alot. I disassembled the bolt and the two plungers were missing. I got replacement...

  15. 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
