    WTB: Pistol calibre Lever Action Rifle

    My son & I had the opportunity to shoot some guns at a local range & both came away having really enjoyed ourselves. One particular rifle was a mates Marlin Cowboy in 38sp/357mag. Always wanted a lever & have enough rimfires. So anyone out there got one they want to part with. Marlin or Winchester would be my first choice.

    I have a Rossi model 93 357magnum/38 Special that shoots well enough I can reliably hit the breadbox of a deer at 75 yards.
    I used to have a Marlin 30.30 lever and it couldn't do that.
    I actually quite like the rifle and don't want to part with it but need to find a longer range little rifle for my son.
    My rifle is SS and wood, 16" barrel. Used but in fine condition. I just recently put bullseye sights on it because the stock sights are horrible.
    I've got it zeroed to 75 yards.
    You can read about it here...
    I bought it for seven hundred and fifty-ish a couple years ago and would sell at a similar price.

    Marlin are generally considered the best, but good luck finding one (especially an original 'JM' one - older, better made). I don't think i have ever seen one for sale here in NZ. If you find one, buy without hesitation!
