They are a "turn of the century" design that was too good to die, until recently. It was in the first generation of spitzer rifles and satisfied Americans affinity to the levergun. Homely IMHO, but they are very significant -- if nothing else than the .300 Savage (once considered the "ideal" deer cartridge) is the basis for the 7.62 NATO/.308win.

I have always equated them with steady, quiet, competent souls that know what they are about. In .300 Savage, it still ranks as one of the best eastern US deer rifles.
