Lever-action Pics

Can we get a sticky on lever-action photo pics? We have some for shotguns, bolt-action, AR/AK/FAL, but no love for the lever-action. I've mentioned this before but never started one (but until now I finally have my own!). Mods, would it be possible to sticky this thread?

I have seen many of y'all with your great rifles (whether they be 30-30s or .357/.44 Mag. Let's see what y'all got!

I'll start, here's my new to me Marlin 1894 SS I got last weekend at the gun show. Shoots .44 Mag and to me the recoil is negligible (at least compared to my .30-06). Hopefully I can add more to the collection in the near future.





Edit: thanks for making it a sticky!

Uberti 1873 Winchester replica in .357 Magnum:

Winchester 94 "1967 Canadian Centennial" in .30-30:



I've never shown pics of the Winchester 94 online before. It belonged to my father and was probably his favorite rifle.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Thanks for sharing dsk, both of those rifles are beautiful.

The excentuated curvature of the rear portion of the stock on your 1873 is striking stylish and your Father's model 94 looks like it would be an extremely accurate rifle.

Savage 99

My Savage 99F chambered in .300 Savage. Vintage 1961, only a year younger than me!
I don't know if the scope mounts were factory, but it was drilled for one.
It's extremely fun to shoot, little recoil and is accurate with stock sights and my eyes.

lever guns

Here is my 1894 Winchester and it's partner, Ruger Vaquero, both in .44 mag. These were my step into the 'modern' gun world from my many flintlock muzzleloaders. 100 year tech from 200 year tech. I've taken local deer with the rifle. The next step was my 'modern' 1911

What sight did you put on the Trapper? A FO sight on a lever gun is a little anachronistic, but I like it.

Like most of my guns I bought is used and they sights came with it. They seem to be Firesights. I prefer a peep sight and a gold bead front on my lever guns, but when I picked this gun up the sights on it just lined up perfectly mount after shoulder mount. I just can't bring myself to mess with that. Getting older and having less than stellar eyesight, I kind of appreciate such things.

I have the sling swivel kit ready to go. Eventually I'll get it slung

Here's my Marlin 336ss in .30-30. I have a Williams Fire Sight kit on it with a red fiber optic front sight (sorry you can't see it that great in the picture) and a rear ghost ring sight with green fiber optics. They are amazing! Super fast target acquisition and they look awesome

Eagles1911- Thanks. I eventually want to put a stainless big loop on it as my big hands occasionally pop the lever out of place while shooting... The sights were $70 on ebay (including tax and shipping) but I'm sure you can find them all over the internet by looking for "Williams Fiber Optic Ghost Ring Sight" or something to that affect. Definitely worth every penny.
